DSJ is well equipped to help you develop the design of your furniture from initial concept all the way through to detailed construction drawings. Our experienced joiners will meet you on site to survey the space and discuss your tastes and ideas offering helpful practical and stylistic advice throughout. Once an initial design idea has been formed our expert team of draughtsmen will draw the design up as a working drawing in plan, section and elevation and liaise with yourself through an agreed set of revision rounds. Once you are happy with the design, we will be able to put the joinery into production.
We also regularly work alongside architects and interior designers and are happy to liaise with them directly if you have already developed a design with them. This often works in the exact same way with DSJ issuing construction drawings of exactly how we will build the unit based off of the designers drawings which can then go through a revision process until all parties are satisfied we have the best design for the space.
We can manufacture any type of timber staircase. We have experience copying existing staircases to comply with heritage/planners requirements using traditional methods. Cut string, open tread, curved, bullnose treads and volutes etc. Using carefully selected European solid hardwoods or engineered hardwood profiles.
We can also supply a variety of turned balustrades/newel posts. Working with architects and end users to achieve the design required. We can survey site to ensure an exact fit considering all aspects of the installation. Our skilled labour have fitted many staircases. In our workshop we can also spray coat the timber in polyurethane lacquer to give a hard-wearing durable finish to enhance the beauty of the timber. Or we can apply a primer coat for site decoration by others.
Our workshop team has a wealth of experience manufacturing bespoke doors. We generally use Utile hardwood which is a dark red mahogany. This is a stable strong hardwood which is less likely to warp or twist providing an excellent core timber for traditional painting or pre finishing. We have manufactured fine panelled doors similar to what is fitted on No 10 Downing Street to give a grand first impression of your property.
Doors can be fitted with internal steel plates in the panel centres for added security which is often a requirement in central London luxury properties. We can match existing doors by copying the moulding profiles exactly. Cutters can be produced to machine any timber section.
We have made standard size residential doors and grand entrance doors up to 3.0m tall. European oak is also a timber of choice we have used before, ironmongery can be supplied and fitted or we can liaise with specialist security companies to install the clients bespoke locks to achieve security system requirements. And of course doors and frames can be supplied pre finished and fitted with perimeter gaskets with both acoustic and thermally controlling properties.
We can apply the same skills to manufacture internal doors to architects drawings manufacturing all panels and mouldings and frames as required from any chosen timber. Many clients chose walnut or oak in the current market. We also work with local bespoke veneer contractors to achieve what’s required in conjunction with us making the doors for veneered panels or complete door faces.
We are constantly involved with the manufacture of bespoke traditional box frames. We use Utile hardwood because it is stable, not prone to rot like softwood and accepts paint well. We use a slim line double glazing system with a 4mm cavity which gives the appearance of traditional single pane glass in sashes but with the benefit of being double glazed. 2022 has so far been a productive year for us manufacturing windows for properties in the west end. We can also undertake upgrade work in conjunction with the supply of new windows to replace staff and parting beads to reduce drafts and improve acoustic qualities of the windows.
Our traditional windows can be made to match existing profiles with radiused heads or shaped horns etc etc. We have supplied and fitted windows foreman high profile clients. The windows can be supplied coated with a tried and tested spray paint system which will give a life of 7 years before redecoration is required. Or we can provide windows in a primer finish for site decoration as there is still a demand for traditional painted finish. Our windows arrive read to receive undercoat and gloss with all preparation completed before they leave the factory. Our installing joiners have fitted many traditional boxframes and are well versed in the replacement and cording up the sashes with the traditional lead weights and sash cords. We also manufacture bespoke hardwood bi fold screens using market leading running tracks, traditional casement windows, lift and slide patio door sets, french doors , glazed screens , architectural designed windows for passive houses etc.
Imagine a dream kitchen to suit all your requirements. Here at DSJ Interiors we can manufacture a kitchen to give you exactly what you want. The kitchen is the heart of any home and is an expensive purchase. Having worked with architects and designers, we have carefully hand crafted a number of kitchens throughout Essex and London. With our experienced draftsman and the product knowledge let us work with you, to ergonomically design your kitchen to suit your needs.
We have access to the latest hardware innovations from manufacturers like BLUM and HAFELE. Our carcases are manufactured from veneered moisture resistant MDF not Chipboard. We can make doors to any style using moisture resistant MDF or use carefully selected hardwoods. We can provide kitchen doors prime finished for traditional site painting or we can pre finish doors using hardwearing PU lacquer or paint to any RAL colour. As well as providing standard timber block worktops from leading manufacturers we also work with carefully selected local solid surfacing contractors and stone masons to provide quality worktops totally bespoke to your kitchen.
Our vanity units are mainly constructed from moisture resistant MDF, painted or veneered and finished with a durable PU lacquer or paint to any RAL colour of your choice. We can develop the design to suit your needs, accommodating sink wastes within drawers to maximise underneath storage. Again, working with designers and architects to achieve the clients’ exact requirements, we have made many contrasting or matching medicine cupboards with mirrors above.
Reception Desks & Bars/Counters
Reception areas are predominantly the first impression of many businesses. We have collectively achieved years of experience making desks for many Blue Chip clients and household names. Working closely with end users, IT, electrical and security contractors, we will totally bespoke your design.
A very successful project involved complete bars and back fittings to a new restaurant in South Woodford. Working with the client we assisted on the design and finishes to achieve the desired look. This had a huge impact on the bar and restaurant with its new upmarket and welcoming feel for the customers. We are positive this helped the restaurant achieve the coveted status of “Champagne Laurent-Perrier London Restaurant of the Year 2016”
