SHOWROOM OPENING TIMES
CREATE INTELLIGENT SPACE AND BENEFIT YOUR WELL-BEING
Paul rang to ask if we could help him improve the wardrobe in his bedroom that, he said “they had put up with for a number of years since moving in”. The existing wardrobe was small, crammed full, didn’t really serve him and his wife too well as it had limited shelves and the hanging space rail was full and sagging. They had out-grown the available space and had to store some of their clothes in other rooms in the house.
Does this ring a bell?
Recently decorated in white with an attractive oak floor gave a light and airy feel to the room which overlooked the garden with a wonderful view over the nearby fields and distant Loch. An attractive recently upgraded en-suite was entered from the room.
The dated timber built panel door wardrobe no longer suited the room. Installed into a recess to the right side of a chimney breast, it spoiled the new aesthetics of the room.
Is this familiar?
When we visited to survey the room, Paul already had some ideas that he felt would improve things for them.
- Could we take out the existing fittings, and re-use the space, and was it possible to hide the chimney breast if the wardrobe doors could be moved out slightly into the room to slide infront?
- To the left side of the chimney breast was unused space in another recess extending to the opposite side of the room - could we incorporate this into the new wardrobe and have the sliding doors fit over the full height and width of the room in a light colour, adding to the light and airy feel of the room?
- Can we provide them with improved hanging space, some additional shelves, drawers and baskets to help them utilise the space more efficiently and bring more of their clothing and linen into this room to free up some of the storage in other rooms?
Answer – of course
The design developed with close discussion between designer and client on how the full wall space could be utilised to best suit needs by introducing the best combination of our ideas and fittings. Placing most of the hanging rails in the top of the new wardrobe allowed for the lower areas to be used for pull-out drawers and accessories and shoe storage. Pull-down hangers were used in part of the wardrobe to assist Paul’s wife to reach the high hanging easily. Paul being tall was happy to have higher ceiling level fixed hanging rails that he could reach.
Removing the existing wardrobe fittings and creating a design for the new installation that incorporated the chimney breast and the recesses over the full width of the room produced a 5-Door wardrobe with five divisions. One housed the chimney breast onto which a full length mirror was installed. A combination of double hanging, full length hanging, pull-out baskets, shoe racks all fitted the remaining space. The wardrobe was finished in white panelling with white glass smooth sliding doors - a subtle décor strip added interest all to compliment the opulence of the room.
Paul and his wife were extremely pleased with the result knowing their involvement in creating the contemporary look they wanted with greatly improved practical storage space.
