Form and function

Locally owned Out of Wood is on hand to help you create your dream interior.

Out of Wood has been providing full design and installation services for more than 30 years; understanding clients’ needs and crafting effective solutions are its lifeblood and a few recent examples show why the business comes highly recommended. Earlier this year, the team worked on a hi-spec renovation project in St Mawes, where highlights included contemporary slab kitchen doors with brass strip edging for a touch of luxury. Alongside this were slatted oak units with hidden push latches to avoid disruption of the crisp lines while bespoke, extra-tall wardrobes maximised the use of space in the bedrooms.

In contrast to this project, Out of Wood also recently completed a traditional kitchen and utility room in a property overlooking Falmouth harbour. This period property needed a timeless style; think in-frame doors with cockbeading accompanied by pilasters and tongue-and-groove cladding. Three-metre-high ceilings called for made-to-measure wall cabinets, complete with ladder-rail for access in this distinctive property.

Closer to Truro, the team installed a classic shaker-style kitchen in a rural country house. The craftsmen created a bespoke double larder with solid oak drawers and spice racks, providing plenty of space to keep clutter at bay. A farmhouse sink with a Quooker tap was included in one of their signature sink units, all with stylish detailing.

In-frame doors can also be used in contemporary kitchens to give an architecturally designed feel, like the installation of an in-frame slab door paired with an extra-large island to meet the client’s need for food preparation, together with a family eating area in their Truro home. Topped off with a Caesarstone quartz worktop, the result is a stunning, modern centrepiece.

The latest project completed by the team, working with local architects and designers, was on The Roseland Peninsula, a collaboration that created a cohesive feel throughout. As ever, the secret was in the detail when it came to this unique drinks cabinet crafted in the workshop; oak wine glass holders, stadium shelving for bottles, internal LED strip lighting and a drinks chiller expertly combine aesthetic and function, meaning everything needed is close at hand.
