Our wonderful cabinetmaker Dean from DL Cabinetmaking (who did our kitchen) made the beautiful doors and fitted out the insides. This wardrobe is Paul's (I have an entire room dedicated as my dressing room!). With the other wardrobe removed last year, we wanted to make the remaining one as functional and beautiful as possible. We decided to have a single shelf and a galvanised steel pole put in, and cubbyholes similar to our previous home. We also got Dean to break up the total height by creating two smaller cupboards at the top. It's a 2.8m cavity so visually, this makes it less overwhelming in what is not a huge bedroom.
As with the rest of the house, we fitted exquisite Halliday Baillie knobs on the doors (separate post coming soon!). We had these in our previous home.
We were surprised at how cost-effective it was to have bespoke doors made. Places like Boston Wardrobes and The Wardrobe Company offer a fixed selection of doors and charge extra for painting. We got a far superior result - and to our specifications - for about the same price as off-the-rack. So, don't be afraid to explore all options when fitting out your house.
Huge, heavy and ugly sliding doors which are not even in keeping with a villa. The insides were fitted out with nasty multi-level plastic poles and shelves as well as mobile drawer units more in keeping for an office.
We still had the carpet down at this stage.
Now, isn't that better?
