    Since joinery is so apparent in most properties, the detailed design of the joinery is very important. You can ask your designer to produce the detailed design drawings or you work out want with your builder and joiner on the site, consider the following points. Note the precise dimensions and aesthetic proportions of what you want. Will new items look right in the room and will they all work together? Remember to think about ergonomics. (for example, can you reach the shelves?). Here is an example of bespoke bookcase made from MDF hand painted with adjustable shelves and CD shelves.

    People often become slightly obsessed with the idea of matching all of the timber within their home. I don't think this is always necessary. Blending different timbers can give a beautiful effect as you use timber from the same family: 
Deciduous trees, such as oak, cherry, beech and walnut
Evergreen soft woods such as cedar, Douglas fir and pine
Tropical or Australian timber, such as jarrah, iroko or teak.

Do you need to allow space for pipes work (for example, in a bathroom cupboard) or cable (for an office desk)? What drawers, doors or handles are you going to use? Hinges, catches, runners and sliding mechanisms need to be chosen, as they will have an impact on the design of any joinery.

In a clean interior it is vital to keep the lines simple. All mechanisms need to be concealed, so it is important to allow enough space at the outline stage, although details can come later. The bespoke office furniture was specially designed so that cable runs and computer equipment were hidden away to give an uncluttered look, leaving only the screen, keyboard and mouse on display.

It may well be that a lovely piece of furniture can suit both your space and your storage requirements; this possibility should be a part of your thinking. However, often the most successful storage is that which does not attract the eye. Look for opportunities to incorporate storage at the outline stage while the design is fluid.

Full-height fitted wardrobe can form a wall, and this can be a useful device for high-density storage where you can afford to lose some width in a room. Try to keep the lines simple. If you are going for fitted wardrobe, aim to fill a whole wall to full height and full width. Empty space beside and above storage will feel more cumbersome in the room (as well as reducing space).

Finding  these spaces once design is advanced can prove impossible, or else ruin a settled arrangement. When the design is at the outline stage, work over the plan looking for recesses. Focus in the areas of the home where will be required.
