Bert & May's Founder chooses Clement steel screens for his new home

Lee Thornley, Founder and Creative Director at Bert & May, handmade tile specialists, chose a series of Clement steel door screens to divide areas within his new home in Poppleton, near York.

The originally ‘unassuming’ suburban three bedroom, mid-century home has been totally transformed. A double storey extension has meant all the bedrooms are now larger and there is room for an extra bathroom plus a fantastic open plan kitchen and living area.

Attention to detail is evident throughout the whole house. Lee wanted to use materials and colours that were timeless and the new look is striking - very modern, but with neutral tones.

The kitchen and living area was designed to make the most of the natural light. One way this has been achieved is by using the steel framed doors to partition rooms, a great alternative to regular walls. The series of three steel doors in a row not only creates a stunning feature but allows the light to flow through the ground floor.

Elle Decoration featured the project in their October 2021 issue.

Lee Thornley said: “We have worked with Clement a number of times, we love their products and always find them professional. They helped us get the product installed on time at my project so that we could meet our tight deadlines and finish the job. The addition of the Clement steel doors certainly helped us to transform what was an exceedingly average home into the beautiful space it is now. We are really pleased with the final look.”
