We recently created a set of wardrobes for a young family living nearby in Clapton. The client wanted a pair of storage units to fit into two alcoves on either side of the chimney breast in their new baby’s nursery. The challenge here was creating a design that we could build in the workshop while also being sure it would fit in the odd spaces.
We decided to make the wardrobes in two stages in order to ensure a good fit without having to do lots of cutting and drilling on site. We first constructed the carcasses and test the fit on site, then bringing them back to the workshop for size adjustment before fitting the doors, shelves, and ironmongery. The resulting set consists of a full-height and half-height wardrobe on one side, with a set of drawers and shelves on the other side.
