A library and snug for an Edwardian home

At David Haugh we not only design and build spectacular kitchens, but we also make furniture for other rooms in the home. We were delighted when we were commissioned with building a library and snug in a beautiful Edwardian property in Tunbridge Wells.

We sat down with our clients to discuss their hopes and dreams for the perfect outcome. They wanted a cosy space where they could curl up and read a favourite novel, but for the space to have the essence of a grand and dramatic library. We listened carefully to what our client asked for in a library for the home and came up with a design they instantly fell in love with.

We agreed on the dark navy paint colour. As I am sure you will agree, it adds real depth and a sense of drama and mystery to the room, especially as the whole wall is filled with a bespoke library shelving unit. The tall ceiling in this Edwardian home lends perfectly to the grand design.

We added a unique rolling ladder system to enable easy access to the higher shelves and the whole design gives the room a charming sensibility. The ladder is positioned at an angle to enable easy access to shelving that would otherwise be out of reach, but we made sure the design enables the ladder to be tucked away vertically when not in use. Our client loved this very neat design element, which is perfect for tall shelving.

To bring the room together we also added some built-in cupboards on the opposite wall to the shelving, which gives the room a complete look. We think the beauty of any room is in the detail and we are really proud of what we achieved in this gorgeous Edwardian home. Our client was absolutely delighted too.
