Just because something is functional doesn’t mean that it has to be ugly. Lockers are a great storage solution for any public space in which people need to keep their belongings safe. From schools to country clubs, offices to gyms, lockers fulfil a vital role. Unfortunately, all too often they can ruin the look of a room by clashing with the surroundings. Luckily, the days of one size fits all locker design are over. At Ok Joinery, we offer a wide range of aesthetically pleasing bespoke lockers that will fit seamlessly into any space. Here are just a couple of the many options on offer.
There’s nothing wrong with a traditional steel locker, but what if you’re going for a more refined look? For a classier feel, we’ve got a range of wooden lockers that will add a touch of elegance to any upmarket office or high-end health club.
High security lockers
If your main concern is security, we can put your mind at rest with our super safe heavy duty wire mesh and school lockers. These are a perfect choice for the storage of valuables in public areas. For extra safety, we can even install electronic locks as well as traditional bolt locks.
We want you to get exactly what you want, which is why we create a preliminary 3D render of the room to help you visualise how the new lockers will look. Why not have a browse through our Pinterest gallery and see if anything takes your fancy?
We do a lot more than just lockers. From bespoke garden furniture to bespoke kitchen tables, we’ve got everything you need to add a uniquely personal touch to your home or business. We’re always happy to answer your questions so give us a call on 01562540204 or email email@example.com to get the ball rolling.
The rapid spread of the coronavirus and the illness it causes called COVID-19 has sparked alarm worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared a global health emergency. The UK has recorded its biggest daily increase in coronavirus cases.
We have heard about hand gel and washing your hands frequently.
But what else we could do? Let`s talk about germs first.
Did you know? The average desk contains 400 times more germs than a toilet seat. Research revealed that more than two thirds of office workers are at risk of sickness due to dirty desks.
They found the average sneeze or cough can send around 100,000 contagious germs into the air at speeds up to 100 miles per hour. These germs can carry viruses, such as Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), influenza etc. So the main mode of transmission is respiratory droplets.
It might also be possible to catch COVID-19 by touching a surface where the virus has recently landed and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes.
Clean office worktop with the right cleaner detergent
First of all it matters what kind of desk you use in your office, and this can be the base point. A lot of the cleaning contractors are afraid to use chemicals on furniture. The reason is simple, they think the desk will get damaged. It’s actually true. The cheapest desks are often made from melamine faced boards(MFC) , that are not really designed for office worktops, as it is possible to damage with chemicals. The material that is designed for work surface is high pressure laminates (HPL). HPL is resistant and hygienic and dense surface. The surfaces are generally easy to clean and resistance to chemicals. So when you planning to purchase office furniture the first think you need to check is it made from MFC or HPL.
Clean mugs properly
Offices mugs can look unsavoury very quickly, particularly if you don’t have a dishwasher. How about that mould growing on the coffee dregs in a long-abandoned mug? Simple rinsing may not remove a colleague’s germs. And the outside surface of the mug could become contaminated by their hands. If they had COVID-19, you could get their germs.
Open plan offices
Open-plan offices are so visually distracting and noisy that people can’t concentrate. They allow germs to spread which can result in greater absenteeism and huge reductions in overall productivity. It`s not easy to keep germs from spreading in the open office environment.
Architects have designed a series of modular pods that are a mix between an open desk cluster and a cubicle: each pod fits a small group of desks ,belonging to one team. The walls around the cube have inset panels to keep germs from spreading between teams and create more visual privacy as well. It’s simply too expensive for most companies, especially startups.
Bespoke office desk
The bespoke office desk is the most effective alternative to keep germs away. Your employees will love being in the office, with the high level of comfort that they get from bespoke furniture. The design fits everyone’s requirements. A bespoke office desk can be fitted with an office screen as a barrier to sound and help to reduce the spread of germs. Bespoke office worktops can be made from HPL.
Work at home
You need to stay healthy; there can be an option to work at home or you are willing to stay home when you are sick anyway. It is important that sick workers stay home, not only for their own health, but to prevent spreading germs among otherwise healthy workers in the office.
Ok Joinery can design manufacture and install built-in bespoke office furniture and bespoke office worktops for your spare room or any room in your home.

There are many benefits and advantages to choosing bespoke kitchen furniture for your home, instead of the many pre-packaged designs. Let’s take a look at some of the best ones.
Many people now want to own something that is unique to them. A custom-made kitchen is an ideal statement to show how different you are. Every piece of furniture can be 100% reflective of your personality and creativity.
An artisan joiner or craftsman has a greater level of experience and skill than factory machinery. They can use better quality materials that are more durable and robust than factory-made furniture.
Even though many kitchens have similar dimensions, your use and vision for the space is completely unique. With bespoke kitchen worktops and furniture you can place units, storage and machinery exactly where you want it. You can fit the furniture around washing machines, fridges etc, rather than vice versa.
With bespoke furniture, you can be as creative or basic as you wish. If you want something functional and no-frills that simply fits the space, you can do it. If you want it to be ultra-modern, classic, rustic or shiny, you can do that too.
Using or creating spare space
You might have a space in your kitchen that would be ideal for storage, but you can’t find any pre-made furniture to fit it. With bespoke kitchen furniture, you can easily design and create something to fit into that wasted space. On the other hand, pre-made furniture and units can often take up more space than you need. Installing custom furniture can actually free up room so that the kitchen feels less cluttered.
Different people have different storage needs in the kitchen. Some people keep footwear or outdoor clothing there, while others prefer a wine rack. Bespoke furniture means that you can personalise storage to your own desires.
Custom furniture means you can incorporate the finishes, colours and materials that you truly like. So your kitchen will look coordinated and also fit in with the ambience of your whole home.
Choosing bespoke kitchen furniture for your home has many benefits compared to factory-made versions. Contact us at OK Joinery to see how we can help make your dream kitchen a reality at an affordable cost.
If you have been tasked to redecorate a leisure centre or spa with a limited budget, it can be hard to determine what changes to make that will have the most impact. Below we offer some top design tips to ensure you create the best spa and leisure centre possible.
1. Think about your guest journey
While having a clean, well-designed pool area is important, you must also consider other aspects . For example, a clean pool area will mean nothing if your guests have to change in out-dated, grubby changing rooms. Bespoke lockers are not only functional, they also look incredibly aesthetic, and can ensure that from the start of their experience your guests are in a pleasant environment.
2. Utilise your outdoor space
Many spas and leisure centres are surrounded by stunning scenery but fail to properly utilise their outdoor area. Bespoke garden furniture can create attractive seating areas for your guests in warmer weather and encourage them to explore the grounds of the facility. Adding a spa day can help guests relax even further.
3. Consider how you can add extra value
When redesigning a spa or leisure centre, think about how you could add extra value to the facility. For example, if the leisure centre has a café that makes poor sales, consider revamping the kitchen area and menu to serve health-inspired meals. Bespoke kitchen worktops can help refresh a kitchen area and make it more functional, without needing to completely redesign the entire space.
