Two door sliding wardrobe with open shelving at the side.
In this job the client requested that her new sliding wardrobe go wall-to-wall, thus putting a more symmetrical shape to the her bedroom .
The main problem was the chimney breast sticking out. After discussing ideas with our client and listening to what she hoped to achieve with regards to internal layout this is what we came up with.
To the far left of the wardrobe was an area specifically for her make up, hair dryer and other cosmetics . We fitted a small mirror over a deep drawer along with plenty of shelving. We also left a space for a stool. A double socket was also fitted for hair dryer and hair straighteners etc. Because we came out that bit further than normal to achieve this wall-to-wall slide robe there was extra space at the back of wardrobe . To really take advantage of this space we fitted storage shelves behind the hanging rails.
For the doors we used a champagne aluminium trim which framed an oak panel. This was broken with a pearl white glass band.
This is a walk-in robe we created in the corner of a master bedroom. The unusual thing about this wardrobe is that the walls of the room are the actual wardrobe itself. We used a light walnut finish to clad the back of the carcases. We fitted a mirror door to slide back to create the entrance to the room.
By doing the wardrobe this way it saved the client erecting a timber stud partition, then slabbing it with plasterboard and rendering it with a skim coat finish. They would have then needed to get it painted and have a door and skirting board fitted. It saved getting in 3 extra tradesmen in to complete this and saving money as a result.
