About Us

At Brandler-London, we design and build bespoke, fitted furniture specialising in the use of barn wood whilst also providing full service joinery for projects in a variety of materials and finishes. As a cabinet maker, our focus is on quality, design, and functionality. Whether it’s a wardrobe, a kitchen, an indoor treehouse, a flat conversion or an entire block redevelopment, our ethos remains the same: to design and build visually stunning projects, using raw materials, creating beautiful, highly textured centrepieces and captivating living spaces. Each completed project is discreetly etched with the Brandler-London logo along with a unique reference number. This identifies each individual piece with a description of its history, disclosing the variety of wood used, where it was sourced, its age, and the date of repurpose, giving each piece a clear provenance. This, combined with our joinery and cabinet making skills and in-house supplies of rare and rustic reclaimed wood mean we closely control each element of the project, guaranteeing an efficient and stress-free process for our clients. We welcome any project – commercial or residential; large or small. Our passion for craftsmanship and creative projects are why we do this and we’re here to help you transform your vision into a reality.

Brandler London - Barn Wood Care Instructions

Barn wood is a strong and durable material. If cared for properly it will outlast any other surface in the house because Barn wood is used to dealing with the extreme forces of nature. It can absorb a heavy amount of wear and tear, and so unlike other materials can actually turn this to it’s own advantage. The result is a deepening of the character of this robust reclaimed timber.

Breaking off some of the deeper textured grain is possible. A pale timber colour patch left from the chip can easily be fixed by staining the light patch revealed and match the colour of the existing surface. Holes and cracks in the surface of the barn wood can also be filled with timber restoration wax.  Imperfections are what give the reclaimed wood much of its character so where possible embrace these.

Cleaning Barn Wood

Brush down the barn wood surface only as necessary with a strong natural or nylon bristle brush. Follow the grain removing surface dust and spillages. The back and edges (non weathered timber only) can be wiped down using a very lightly damp microfibre cloth. Be carful to avoid snags. Ensure the timber is left very dry. Avoid any level of moisture being applied or left on the timber. Where possible avoid using a cloth on the barn wood face itself.  Snags can be removed by gently pulling out (in opposite direction that you had been whipping) any fibres that cling to the surface. When cleaning do not apply excessive moisture to the barn wood as this can in some rare cases penetrate the material causing lasting damage.

Repeat this process using a furniture polish spray for wood. This will clean and nourish the timber giving it a deep and long lasting shine. Furniture polish adds protection, helping repel dust and moisture from the surface of the wood. Thoroughly buff all areas to ensure the polish spreads evenly across the timber. Follow the directions on your furniture polish spray for best results. This should be repeated every 3-6 months or whenever necessary.

We hope you enjoy your barn wood products and remember… when looked after properly barn wood will last a lifetime.

Dreams come to reality with our Replacement cabinet Doors

Over the years we have had a a steady flow of customers enquiring about purchasing replacement kitchen, wardrobe or other cabinet doors on a supply only basis made from our unique reclaimed barn wood timber. We have delivered these across the country mainly for residential use to homeowners, designers and property developers but also for commercial use in tea areas and office storage.

Depending on the project scale and desired services required we have either work closely with the clients on a more bespoke door replacement service or alternatively and as often is the case the client has had their kitchen or wardrobe door sizes ready and we simply fabricate as per their requirements, a very cost effective way to get the reclaimed look and satisfaction of using sustainable, upcycled materials.

It is not just replacement doors but also doors for a new kitchen, wardrobe or cabinet. In this instance the client would usually go direct to a carcass manufacturer such as Howdens or Ikea for everything but the doors and panels then we would supply all the doors, panels and plinths for the fronts of their new cabinets as well as other items such as handles and hinges. This way the client can get the Brandler London look for their kitchen without the need to pay the higher prices that bespoke work costs. It does leave the emphasis on the client to come up with a design that will work, find the carcasses, appliances, worktops etc themselves and a good installer to fit the cabinetry. This is not straightforward but definitely possible for most determined homeowners. We are here to offer advise but there are also powerful free resources available such as thew Ikea kitchen planer. Using the Ikea planner you can design your kitchen the way you want, buy the carcasses from Ikea and then send us the plan and the doors list. We then supply all the doors cut and prepared to work perfectly with your Ikea kitchen. However we are always here to offer you a bespoke service should you want to avoid the extra work and risk of designing your project on your own.

We are able to supply the doors with the hinge drill outs and recessed handles cut out as per our clients specification. This way the doors can be fixed directly onto the cabinet with hinges provided by us or the carcass supplier and would not necessarily require an installer to fit. We are also able to apply a solid wood lipping for overlay doors where you want a more polished look on certain section. This is the same for our end panels, corner infill panels, scribes and pelmets. We have a range of different finishes and textures. We protect and finish our projects with a specially designed lacquer that keeps the natural look and colour. We have a blog and resources page for the barn wood aftercare to keep your reclaimed timber products all looking fresh and vibrant.

Besides the doors we also supply worktops in either solid reclaimed barn wood or mitred engineered tops, advising where and when these might be appropriate. Other popular reclaimed barn wood products are our floating shelves supplied pre-drilled for the floating shelf brackets and wall cladding ready to be applied straight to your walls.

Please get in touch direct or look out for our new e-commerce site launching this year (2022!). God luck with your projects and contract us anytime for assistance.
