Attention to detail

Whether it’s a new kitchen, home office or bedroom, Out of Wood has the expertise to achieve the home of your dreams.

Based in the cathedral city of Truro, Out of Wood has been providing full design and installation services to homes around Cornwall for over 30 years. The business prides itself on high customer satisfaction as well as its quality work and friendly customer service. Last year, the original owner, Clive Martin, decided to take retirement, and ownership transferred to Adam Simmons who has been a key member of the workshop for more than 18 years. Under Adam’s leadership, the business has continued to thrive, benefitting from the experience of the same dedicated team in the showroom and the workshop. Ultimately, Out of Wood is made up of designers and makers whose strengths lie in the ability to handmake bespoke items for your home as well as providing manufactured options or a combination of the two. Whether you are looking to enhance your home with a new kitchen, upgrade bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, or furnish your home office with built-in bookcases and storage, Out of Wood is on hand to help make your home beautiful. If a complete renovation is what you’re after, then explore the traditional shaker look for a more classic feel; think beautifully framed cabinets with inset doors and solid oak drawer boxes for a welcoming and functional space. Alternatively, turn to the features of a contemporary kitchen with handleless or touch-latch doors, in a variety of high-gloss or matt-finish colours. The key to creating your new kitchen, however, extends beyond simply choosing between aesthetics, but instead lies in the details that’ll bring your vision to life, from wood choice to the right sink manufacturer.

Your kitchen might feature a simple slab-style door for sleek sophistication, or a beaded in-frame door incorporating painted or natural wood with a smooth or grained finish. Choose from worktops available in granite, Corian, Silestone, Caesarstone, solid timber and laminate, depending on your preference. Pair this with the perfect sink from a leading manufacturer like Franke, Blanco, Perrin & Rowe or Shaws. Ceramic Belfast or French farmhouse sinks infuse a home with a period feel while stainless steel guarantees to withstand trends with its timeless look. Even the smallest details like kitchen taps can help to ensure a cohesive look throughout, with water filtration and instant hot water taps becoming increasingly popular. Being suppliers of the Quooker range, Out of Wood even has a working hot-water tap model on display in the showroom.

There are also plenty of add-ons on offer to elevate both the style and function of your kitchen, from solid oak drawers and larder units with wooden spice racks to internal drawers and wooden cutlery trays. Recessed lighting strips and under cabinet lights add atmosphere and allow you to change the mood of the room. Feature furniture like drinks cabinets can be designed to store and display your glassware while housing a wine chiller for your favourite bottles. On top of add-ons and feature furniture, explore a host of accompanying products like built-in coffee machines to complete your kitchen, with everything you could possibly need for a fully furnished and functional space. Out of Wood is a retailing partner of Neff, offering an extensive range of innovative kitchen appliances including Slide & Hide ovens which, paired with a built-in microwave or warming drawer, makes for the perfect combination. Decor frame strips can be fitted to give a seamless finish. Neff has a hob for every cooking style as well as a wide range of refrigeration, integrated dishwashers and laundry appliances, so all of your home essentials are available from one place. Your design and installation needs aren’t limited to your kitchen, utility room, or bedroom though. Just recently, Out of Wood completed a commission for a bespoke solid walnut Edwardian library incorporating a traditional ladder rail. Whatever your project, classic or contemporary, Adam and the dedicated team at Out of Wood are on hand, with years of expertise and advice to help you achieve the home of your dreams.
