This is the first of the 2 rooms fitted in Nash Mills, Hemel Hempstead. Besides personal customer choice the designs of the wardrobes were influenced by several practical issues. These included a chimney, sloped ceilings and a boiler.
The first room was the main front room and had a chimney in the middle and sloping roof towards the window. Sliding doors are not suitable on sloped ceilings. As a result, we opted for an open corner shelving unit seamlessly built into the area. However, the bedroom window only allowed for the unit to extend 300mm so the unit had to be angled – flush with the front of the wardrobe and tucked up just behind the window sill. We built the wardrobe around the chimney and created a shelving section to maximise usage of space. The customer also requested for the inner shelves to be perfectly aligned with the outer section splits of the doors to give the wardrobe uniformity.
