Bathroom and Bedroom Showroom Update

Bathroom and Bedroom Showroom Extension

Update

As you know we've been extending our showroom at Kingston Park, Newcastle. 

We've added a second floor and installing bathroom and bedroom displays to showcase our designs and products

We've had a frustratingly slow few weeks with delays due to the weather, display tiles and products being delayed and due to the fact we've been so busy with installations for our clients which has to take priority over our refurbishments.

We are however making progress 

 

The first two bathrooms are now fully tiled, with furniture by Bespoke Interiors, Silestone worksurfaces and sanitary ware/brassware from Hudson Reed and Ashton & Bentley starting to be installed

 

 

The third bathroom is starting to be tiled with all tiles supplied by NTA which is also based on Kingston Park

 

On the bedroom side we've had the marble worksurfaces template and installed in the traditional walk in wardrobe

 

And we're starting to have the first hand painted bedroom painted

 

 

We're also having work carried out downstairs in our kitchen, living area showroom due to alterations from installing columns to support the steel floor. We've just finished installing our new tv cabinet/bookcase which would look great in a living room or kitchen

We'll come back to you soon with more updates but in the mean time please call in to our Newcastle showroom to speak to one of our designers and help us transform your home like we're transforming our showroom!

Bathroom and Bedroom Showroom Extension

Bathroom and Bedroom Showroom Refurb

Our Kingston Park Showroom just got bigger!

 

At Bespoke Interiors, we have an extensive range of kitchen displays that show our clients the type of work we do but we've always struggled for space to show what we can do with bathrooms, bedrooms and walk in wardrobes. 

Last year we made the decision to extend our showroom and add a 1st floor and make this floor our bathroom and bedroom showroom. This exciting new space gives us the opportunity to install 4 new bedroom displays, 2 new walk in wardrobe displays, a study and 4 new bathrooms. 

Although the end result will certainly have the WOW factor, there is the frustrating period whilst the work is ongoing and we have little to show people in terms of bathrooms and bedrooms in the mean time. 

So.....we thought it would be helpful to write a weekly blog to give a progress report on how the work is coming along.

 

It all started in mid December with taking down the existing ceiling and having steel fabricators install the mezzanine deck

  

 

There was  a lot of work to do once the steel was in place. A new ceiling to be fitted underneath and the showroom on the ground floor needed to be put back together

 

 

 

We now had a floor to design our new first floor bedroom and bathroom showroom

 

For the past few weeks we have been installing the stud work to form the rooms and ceilings and plastering the space

 

This last week we have started to fit out some of the displays so we're starting to see a real change and the end is in sight! 

 

 

We're estimating another 4 weeks until the showroom refurbishment is complete but there will be bathrooms and bedrooms to see by next weekend. We're really excited to have the place finished and hoping to give our clients ideas and inspiration

Thanks for taking the time to catch up on our progress and we'll have another update for you next week

Remember, we're still designing and installing bathrooms and bedrooms while this work is ongoing so please come down to the showroom if we can help you in the mean time!

Bespoke Bookcases and alcove furniture in Newcastle

 

Struggling to find bespoke storage?

At Bespoke Interiors we specialise in bespoke fitted furniture. That doesn’t stop at kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms. We also make fitted furniture for living rooms, alcoves and even under stairs cabinets.

 

Bespoke Bookcases

 

Because we manufacture and paint most of our furniture at our Newcastle based workshop, we are able to create bespoke sized cabinetry to create stunning storage including painted and timber bookcases

Alcove furniture

 

Houses with chimney breasts invariably leave the homeowner with a tricky alcove or two to deal with. With the variation in width and depth, finding premade, off the shelf furniture to fit the space is often impossible

With bespoke alcove furniture, you don’t have to settle for gaps

 

With a wide choice of colours, finishes and styles. Bespoke Interiors can create the furniture to fit your home perfectly

 

We also work with experienced French polishers so matching in to existing woodwork isn’t a problem that can’t be overcome

Staircase storage

 

Staircases are often an overlooked area for clever storage solutions. Why settle for wasted storage or a standard understairs cupboard door

With bespoke angled doors in any style or finish, you can really give your under stairs space a quality finish

Hand Painted Kitchens Newcastle

Hand Painted Kitchens

 

At Bespoke Interiors we offer both a spray painted and hand painted finish to our furniture. We are often asked what the benefits are of hand painting a kitchen, so we thought it might be helpful to give a little information about hand painted furniture

Hand painted kitchens are considered to be a higher end finish within the kitchen industry and there’s good reason for this. Although spray painted furniture has a great, durable finish, the best joiners in the world can’t cut and joint painted cornice, pelmet etc without leaving a visible joint. With a hand painted finish, these joints are sanded, filled and painted in your home as part of the process, this gives a more moulded look to the furniture and can only be fully achieved by the process and gives a very distinctive look.

Depending on the style of kitchen you’re looking for, there are also paint effects that can only be properly applied to the furniture when hand painted onsite. These effects include distressing, patina and gold/silver leafing. Our popular Manor House Kitchen design features heavy corbels and dental cornice which looks great hand painted with silver leaf effect or antiqued effect.

Hand painted kitchens in Newcastle aren’t as common as in the south and north west England, so skilled hand painters are rare in the region. However, Bespoke Interiors is lucky to have one of the best painters in Anita Arris, who has vast experience and her workmanship is second to none.

We also recommend Little Green Paint Co as our preferred paint supplier for hand painted furniture. We find their colour range to be quite stunning and since Farrow and Ball have switched to water based paints, the oil based paints of Little Green give a much more durable finish to our furniture

We hope this brief explanation of hand painting gives you an idea of the process but for more information we recommend you call into our showroom to see our hand painted display and discuss things further with our designers.

Living North Kitchen Editorial

Darras Hall kitchen feature

Living North Magazine

 

This months Living North Magazine contains the Interiors Guide for 2017 and Bespoke Interiors has a feature editorial on pg 30

 

The project was carried out in Darras Hall, Newcastle in late 2016 and comprised of a Kitchen/living area, utility room, downstairs cinema room and a walk in wardrobe

 

Hand_Painted_Kitchen_Newcastle

 

The kitchen was hand painted in Little Green Paint Co colours with silver leaf effect on the corbels and dental cornice. With fully turned doric pilasters to add to the grandeur of the design

 

The cinema room hand painted oak shaker with a more understated design to give a subtle elegance to the more relaxing needs of the room

The ornate theme of the kitchen continued upstairs to the walk in wardrobe

Again, hand painted in Little Green Paint Co colours mixed with natural oak veneer internals for the open wardrobes gave the classic oak/cream colour scheme finished off with gold leaf paint effect on the corbels and dental cornice

Subtle lighting on a mirrored backdrop gave the handbag wardrobe that added feature

Seahouses Kitchens

Recent project

Kitchens_Seahouses

 

Although Bespoke Interiors showroom is situated in Newcastle Upon Tyne, we are prepared to travel to any area. 

One of our recent projects was to design and install a kitchen in a recently built extension in Seahouses 

The clients desired a traditional style door with a modern look and a seating area on the island was also a must. 

 

Using a  mix of materials, a solid oak circle and Silestone Quartz worktop was used to create a stunning island design.

With a mix of painted dark and light greys on a shaker style door, a classic yet contemporary look was achieved which was looked very impressive in the new extension
