Beautifully bespoke solutions, not just kitchens, is what Treetown Kitchens do, says designers Hayley Hohneck and Shannon Meredith.
While people know them for kitchens—it’s in their name after all—Hayley and Shannon point out many of the same design principles apply when creating a beautiful and functional laundry, bathroom or wardrobe. And their careful design and quality craftsmanship extends to entertainment units, stairs and more.
The Treetown team comprises three designers along with administrative support in the design team, with seven qualified joiners and four apprentices in the factory, three of which are out on the road most days installing. Each of these areas of the business represents a specific skill set and expertise required to create a space you love.
The design team can create no obligation 3D plans to transform your space. This might be to get the maximum storage you can from an existing laundry, or it could be creating the wardrobe of your dreams in a new build.
Like in a kitchen, ergonomics are key to a successful laundry layout. See here how the washer and dryer are placed above the bench, making it easier to reach in and out.
And you can never get too much storage in a laundry, from hanging spaces to baskets for those odd socks!
Bespoke doesn’t have to mean expensive. Instead, bespoke means you can create individual spaces that fit both your style, house and life. “It’s about creating spaces you love and fit your life,” says Hayley, who admits there is plenty of furniture, kitsets and premade options out there, but she asks, does it actually fit your space? Imagine being able to not only choose the way you want to utilise a space better but the look and finish as well.
“We don’t use modular units,” says Hayley. “Every cabinet is made to measure, meaning we can create the design for your space, maximise stud height and so on.”
It also means you can continue a design aesthetic from your kitchen through to your laundry. You no longer need a stock standard white vanity in your bathroom. Or it could mean creating a storage solution that uses an otherwise wasted space and making it look it was always meant to be there.
Smart, cohesive, well-designed cabinetry can add so much to your home, a point, Hayley says, is illustrated well in Elevate Homes. For these small footprint transportable houses, the Treetown team build and install functional storage spaces. And by continuing the look throughout, the small spaces look bigger.
So don’t sell yourself short. Give the team at Treetown a call to see how they can transform your home.
