Project: Signature Collection Fitted Wardrobes White Gloss Alumiunium Profile Handles

17 November 2011

The brief from the clients was to create something very modern and contemporary for their period home. As you would expect from a property of its age, the room is certainly quirky. There is a beautiful original fireplace in the room. What gives the room even more charm is the fact that the fireplace is actually off-set on the chimney breast. Factors such as these meant a little extra care had to be taken when laying out furniture within the room.

Due to the layout of the room, specifically the door and windows, the best places for the built in wardrobes were the alcoves that were on either side of the chimney. As would be expected, the proportions of each alcove were different. Furthermore, the walls, floor and ceiling were far from plumb and level. This was not a problem for us as we are used to working with such challenges.

With regards to the interior, the clients opted for a matt white finish to compliment the gloss white exterior. We worked together with the clients to really maximise the storage within the wardrobes. We specified a good mix of hanging, drawer and shelf storage. To maximise versatility, one half of each wardrobe could be used for long hanging. While the other half neatly houses the internal drawers and single hanging. As per usual, all doors and drawers were supplied with excellent soft close mechanisms.

As this is not the first time you will be seeing furniture from our Signature Collection, I will not go in to too much details. Just summarise the key features: (i) oversized doors; (ii) flush frame; (iii) aluminium profile handles.

The clients are delighted with the finished project. So, too, are we. The wardrobes fit in very nicely in the room without taking away from its period charm. Another project expertly executed by The Fitted Wardrobe Company.
