A place to sit.

October 7 2016

Make use of the space under a window or beside a fireplace.

It’s amazing how useful the space below a window can be. We have created many window seats that double up as extra storage. They can have lift up lids or pull out drawers depending on what you will be storing in them. The tops can be upholstered or have loose cushions on them.

These window seats have shelving either side which increases the storage and aesthetic appeal of the room. The shelves and seats were made from Formica melamine board Hotham Oak. The drawers have a Solu handle that creates a finger well to pull them open without the need for a handle on the drawer front. This gives a nice clean look to the cabinetry.

If you have a view and may want to sit and soak it in a bit of comfort will be needed. Upholstered seats or cushions will do the job. We use Buttoning Upholstery in Ballarat whenever something like this is required. The cabinetry here is MDF with a 2 pac finish.

Library seating and shelving.

Another time to sit and relax is when you want to curl up with a book. If you have the luxury of a dedicated library or study you may have a reading chair or couch. Matthews Joinery  installed lots of bookshelves over the years. From traditional shelving to modern and contemporary shelving we can custom design and manufacture whatever you need.

What about the study or home office?

The study or home office will need one or two seats and storage for file and books. Matthews Joinery has installed many a custom study.

The Island bench and Breakfast bar.

Breakfast bar and Island bench seating is very popular. This is often requested to be included in a kitchen design.

And now for something different!

Matthews Joinery has also installed custom joinery and seating into horse floats and racing car trucks. These are small and compact spaces that require lots of knowledge and know how when it comes to making it work. All upholstery was done by Buttoning Upholstery in Ballarat.
