We also understand that budget is an important consideration in large-scale projects like these. As a result, we ensure that all our quotes are accurate and transparent and strive to implement the most cost-effective solutions every time.

Our commercial expertise encompasses a range of industries from leisure and retail to corporate environments and hospitality.

Bespoke Joinery FAQs

Bespoke joinery is when a joiner is commissioned to create woodwork according to a client’s specific wishes and design preferences. Bespoke joinery services like Aksum’s deliver tailor-made timber items for both residential and commercial projects. 

Joinery is when two or more pieces of timber are connected—or joined. In interior design, joinery refers to those elements of a building or interior made out of wood, such as staircases, windows, or doors.

Technically, carpenters construct wooden elements of a building on-site whereas a joiner works in a workshop, joining or connecting pieces of wood. A joiner might make a staircase, for example, but a carpenter will fit the staircase. However, in practice, there’s a lot of overlap between the trades.

Both carpentry and joinery involve working with wood. Both use a combination of traditional and cutting-edge tools to cut, shape, smooth, and finish wood for windows, doors, shelves, staircases, and floorboards, or any other wooden elements.

The time it takes between you initially contacting us and the completion of any joinery project will depend on the type and scale of the project. After our survey and consultation, we will be able to give you a more concrete deadline.

We work with a range of woods and finishes. After discussing your design with you and learning more about your specific vision, we will be able to offer advice on what type of wood would work best in your project.

Our bespoke joinery service means that we can adapt any designs to match the style of the property and the taste and design preferences of the property owner. We can work with you to ensure that any new pieces of joinery are complementary and appropriate.

Our team of talented joiners is able to produce woodwork that matches and complements a range of property types, including period properties.

We offer a comprehensive service, from initial design to manufacture, as well as the final installation with our team of expert fitters. We also offer an aftercare service to ensure that your designs continue to look their best for many years to come.

At Aksum, we actively strive to reduce our impact on the environment, complying with all relevant environmental legislation and regulations and making environmental awareness a fundamental principle of how we do business.

This depends on the nature of the project. The size of the job and the specific client requirements will all affect cost. We can carry out a survey and consultation to give you an accurate quote and always strive to keep our prices accessible.
