If you’re looking for inspiration for your finish carpentry project, it’s worthwhile looking into the interior design carpentry side of things or better still, bringing an interior designer on board to help you create your dream space and home aesthetic. Carpentry and interior design go hand in hand, and whether you’re looking to simply re-energize your home or completely revamp its interior, carpentry is one of the best ways to update your space.
Beautiful millwork and stylish home accents can last for decades, so carpentry is a worthwhile investment especially if you want your home to look polished and properly finished. Here are a few interior design carpentry ideas that you may not have considered for your home improvement project.
Natural light can make a huge difference to your home, and windows aren’t the only way to allow natural light into the home. Glass-panel wooden doors are a great way to maximize the natural light that flows through and you can still achieve separation and sound-proofing between rooms.
You don’t have to completely gut your kitchen to give it a facelift – you can easily transform the look with new cabinet doors and drawers. Get new doors custom made by your local design carpentry company to fit the new style or décor of your kitchen.
Rustic wooden pantry door
The wood you choose should be fitting with the architecture and design of your home. If your home follows a country or farmhouse style, consider adding rustic elements such as a sliding pantry door to save space and add character to your kitchen.
The space under the stairs can easily go to waste, so why not make the most of it and create a cosy nook through design carpentry? Line the walls with the same wood as your staircase, fill the space with cosy cushions or a thin mattress, get a custom desk area built, or get a built-in cabinet with glass doors to store everything from wine to books.
Wooden bench storage is a really great addition to the home and it doubles up as a seating area as well as extra storage spaces. Storage benches work great in front of a bay window, in the hallway, as well as in the kitchen. Pick a wood stain that matches the design of your home, and decorate with cushions and upholstery.
