The Wisdom of Wood

Exclusive design and best quality materials. We can make your vision and dreams come true when you build your ideal home with us!

Making a house into a home can be a long process. If you can imagine how you want your place to look, it’s certain that the craftsmen at Balcombe’s Wood and Wisdom will be able to make your dream a reality.

I went along to their 5,000 square foot joinery workshop, accompanied by Adam King and Mark Scarff who run the company, to see how completely bespoke joinery can transform a design into something completely unique that will last indefinitely. “Many manufacturers tend to specialize but we do everything” Mark told me, “customers only have to deal with one company.” After 10 years in business, Wood and Wisdom has gained a superb reputation for premier architectural joinery including doors, windows, bespoke kitchens, gates and staircases. Windows can be constructed to echo a specific period with the advantage of double glazing and draught sealing and can be sprayed with a three coat finish in any colour. A bespoke designed external door can create a grand or classic entrance while internal doors can extend the style through to the living areas. The kitchen is where bespoke joinery really comes into its own; whether fully fitted, freestanding, classic Shaker style or hi-gloss contemporary, the choice is limitless and can transform a tired kitchen into the central hub of the home.

Bespoke joinery instantly creates character in a home. There are few features so magnificent as a sweeping spiral staircase and Adam showed me a recent example that effortlessly combined elegance with understated cool. Rooms that bridge the space between inside and out are another speciality. Stunning orangeries incorporating roof lights and folding doors create added space while making a grand visual statement. Craftsmanship is not confined to the house. Gates to gardens and drives gather every part of a property together and create coherence in detail and style. The company is also creating a portfolio of Victorian verandas, elegant carports and simple glass rooms in powder coated aluminium that help to extend the ambience of the house into its surroundings.

Many happy clients have written of their pleasure in such high quality workmanship. One mentioned how they were “absolutely delighted with the outcome” while another noticed how Wood and Wisdom are “very reliable, always delivering on time and on budget” while being “extremely knowledgeable and helpful.” Mark told me how they can transform a client’s ideas or sketches and help create a home that is completely individual while remaining functional, practical and beautiful. A showroom above the workshop is in the process of being designed. Clients will be able to see, touch and experience the difference that bespoke joinery can bring to a home.

Your home is where you can fully express your dreams, personality and character; Wood and Wisdom can work with you to make the utmost of your personal space.
