Study and storage solutions for the home

September 18 2015

Our homes don’t just house us, they have to house all of our “stuff”!


Our homes don’t just house us, they have to house all of our “stuff”! Life demands us to pay bills and taxes and this in-turn requires us to sit down somewhere and pay them. Having a dedicated spot to do this can be a luxury depending on the size and layout of your home.

Having a well planned study or a specially designed place to do these chores can make all the difference. At Matthews Joinery we will take the time to discuss your needs and put that extra bit of thought and effort in, resulting in a customised design.

A study nook could be the answer if you are tight on space.

Developing trends have seen us start to incorporate study nooks and charging stations into kitchens. With the onslaught of technology comes a copious amount of chargers and cords. A customised cabinet can house these items and you can re-claim your bench. The use of power points with USB ports in these cabinets really increases their functionality. The study nook can be built into an existing space or created within a new design. You can hide them behind doors or simply have a spot to sit at that has power points and perhaps a USB charging station.

A dedicated study.

If you have the luxury of a study a thoughtful design can really make it work. Your needs have to be considered, will the room be used by children for homework or exclusively an adult space? Or does everyone have to share? Do you run a home business or need a spot to read or draw? All of these things will lead to a different design and a personal solution for your study.

TV, Books and media storage.

We need areas to house books, DVDs and ornaments. Custom cabinetry can provide clever solutions. Cabinets for coffee bars and something a little stronger can all be accommodated with a little thought.
