Covid 19 Update Read More

We are open for business as usual (although there here is nothing usual about this situation) with our transport company (Brooks Transport) who are designated by the government as critical to the covid response. We are still delivering direct to door or site, (however collections or visits to the warehouse are not possible.) Our IT systems allow us to work from home so our staff are protected. Please Call or Email Us for samples or orders. Our factories are back to full capacity and the supply chain is operating effectively which can be seen here. As a trade supplier we have a minimum requirement of 50m2 for any samples and supplies. Please call 01666 504015 if you require less. For Government advice please click here. Even with these steps we have made, we must pull together, support one another, and get through this as a group, a family, and feel proud to say to our wider community we are critical to the Covid-19 response, and we will support it for as long as we are able. Stay safe, stay well, look after yourself, and each other.

The Building Centre will be open fully with the café back and exhibitions in place from Monday 12th April 2021. In the meantime, you can book visits in advance by contacting The Building Centre directly on 020 7692 4000. Please note that we do not have any representatives based at this showroom, but you can call us during your visit to talk through the options on display on 01666 504 015.

The Tetbury showroom is strictly by appointment only, maximum of two people with social distancing and face coverings required. Please call 01666 504 015 to book an appointment.


Upcycling Ideas For Your Home

Posted in Home By Solidwood Company

You’ve probably heard of upcycling- it’s something that’s anywhere and everywhere. Whether you’re a novice or master craftsman, there are loads of things you can try out in and around the home.


Lighting is probably one of the most common ways to upcycle. Wine bottles and mason jars can make really effective lights, hung from the ceiling.


Tin cans can be used to store pens or cutlery, whilst mason jars can also be filled with all sorts. 

Flower vases

Any kind of glass bottles or jars, once washed out, can be used as a vase for flowers anywhere in your home. 


Try lying a plate of glass over a wooden pallet and you’ve got yourself a unique coffee table, complete with room inside for magazines. 

The possibilities are endless for upcycling. See what you’ve got lying around the house that you don’t need anymore and see if you could turn it into something else.
