Timber Shop Fronts and Restoration In Conservation Areas


An eye-catching hand-crafted timber shop front is the most considered point when designing your retail outlet. Ensuring an attractive and well thought through shop front will drive footfall and voice your brand at entrance. Your shop front can be supplied and installed using traditional timber and toughened glass units. With a vast selection of designs, each timber shop front is designed with your requirements in mind and installed with excellence by our team of fitters at Barnsbury Joinery.

You may be faced by council restrictions to use timber shop fronts, especially around conservation areas and roads where local heritage is high priority. For further guidelines please read through the following information:  Or you may be considering a timber shop front because your brand values and aspirations are traditional. Either way, our skilled joiners at Barnsbury Joinery will turn your designs and ideas of a timber shop front into a masterpiece. We always use water resistance plywood timbers, combined with A rated finishing treatments to ensure your timber shop front is built to last. Our team will overlook the entire works from sourcing materials to installation to ensure your frontage meets council regulations and your personal requirements. 

Timber Shop Front Advantages: 

  • Durable 

  • Fire and weather resistance 

  • Easy Maintenance 

  • Perfect for attracting high end customer

  • Made for conservation areas 

Barnsbury Joinery have installed a number of shop fronts in many conservation areas and worked with many conservation officers across the country and, where appropriate, we are able to obtain written confirmation that any proposed work does not require planning permission on our client’s behalf. In cases where planning permission will be required, we can provide detailed specification, samples and drawings to support your application. Many conservation officers will not allow existing timber shop fronts to be changed as this normally will alter the exterior appearance of a shop front property. However, our custom made timber shop fronts have so far been approved in 100% of Conservation Areas where we have submitted details of our specification directly to the Conservation Officer.
