CLEVER USE OF AWKWARD SPACES
Does your home or place of work suffer from a lack of really using the space available to practical advantage? That is without creating a disorganised mess – rather have a storage solution that oozes style and innovation to be admired by you the user, and by your visitors.
It is easy to throw things on an empty floor space or into corners behind furniture, or even into cupboards that don’t quite have the shelving in place or the design to hold the items you need to store tidily. Open the door and outflows the contents! The result – embarrassing untidy corners that dilute your comfort and well-being and cause you to cringe when visitors call.
Why have this stress? Careful thought and a little innovation can transform these spaces into admirable room features that adds style and organisation to the room.
Recently we provided a solution for a customer to fit out an awkward sloping ceiling attic bedroom cupboard to transform it into a ‘walk-in’ wardrobe for his and her clothes. The customer wanted a modern look with all the shelving and hanging hidden when not in use.
Being long and narrow with a steeply sloping ceiling, the cupboard presented the challenge of creating sufficient hanging height for clothes below the sloping ceiling and allowing for adequate storage for smaller garments in shelves or drawers. The entrance to the cupboard from the bedroom is located roughly centred on the long highest wall with the room height diminishing rapidly to the wall opposite. The width between the long walls is limited in width and when allowing sufficient depth from the low wall forward toward the high wall, to gain reasonable hanging height and space for shelves / drawers, the floor space was reduced to just enough width to walk comfortably into the area and access the storage. When the dimensions were established to allow the storage space that our customer was looking for, we recommended a sliding door system to hide the hanging space and a series of good sized double drawers below for the smaller garments.
Given that the return walls at either end had enough space to house a return of the same design with boxed storage above in the higher wall area above the sliding door hanging space, this complimented the design and allowed full use of the available space.
The bold ‘Anthracite’ carcass colour is complimented by an attractive ‘Whitewashed Pine’ adding contrast and an element of stylish panache to the space.
A solution loved and cherished by the customer.
