How To Fit A Bedroom Wardrobe

Under The Eaves And Utilise

All The Space Available!

As we look at this bedroom you will easily understand why this client wanted to use the space under the eaves for a bedroom wardrobe with slider, lights and internals. However the client also wanted the access into the small loft space to be usable as well! You can see in the image there is a cupboard that had to come out as it was useless for clothes storage.

Wardrobe Design

We designed a frame system on the front of the eaves which had a walk through long hanging section so our client could access the space behind. This was a good 2 feet/600mm wide and would be used for the storage of cases, boxes or anything the client wanted to hide away from sight! Doing it this way meant the client could also access her loft space relatively easily.

As you can see from the next image we knocked out the stud wall cupboard and made a bit of a mess! We’re pretty good at that but we always tidy up well – we are well-known for that. The plasterer came in next and we made good the walls. We were then left with a stop valve and pipe coming up from the floor. If you look at the next image you can see the new plaster and the box on the floor where we have covered the stop valve and pipework. Although it is now boxed in, it is also easily accessible if required.

Bedroom Wardrobe Requirements

The customer wanted a laminate floor in the wardrobe area so we laid that and got on with building the framed wardrobe storage sections. It was a deep space so we made the wardrobe storage at the front of the eaves. This then gave plenty of space behind for more storage and the all important access to the loft hatch. Whenever we are designing storage we always spend time ascertaining the customer’s specific needs and then make the facilities appropriately. This ensures that all the sections are laid out as efficiently as possible.

Slider, Lights And Internals All In Place

So loads of hard work has gone in to preparing the area, plastering, laying the floor and building the internal storage sections, but the “wow that looks good” only happens at the end when the lights and the doors go on!!

Take a look at the finishing touches such as the lights and the mirrored sliders.  No need for me to type any more because the images say it all.
