However, the only option for us what to have something custom-made, so as to hide all the pipes and hot press.
Here's what our 'wardrobe' arrangements used to look like:
|THE STUFF OF NIGHTMARES: Our previous bedroom storage arrangements|
We went to Bedroom Elegance on Dorset Street, Dublin 1, about two years ago on a fact-finding mission but it wasn't until the likelihood of being crushed by a canvas wardrobe began increasing rapidly that we forced to take action.
Another visit to Bedroom Elegance was required last month to finally decide on a design. A very simple white door with minimal detailing that suits sloped ceiling was chosen, along with 'fridge' handles. I think it looks a bit 1950s, which I like. There was a quick turn-around time, with detailed measurements taken the following week (lasers were involved, important given the uneven old walls) and fitting about a week or two later. Everyone we dealt with from sales to measurements to fitting was very friendly and helpful, excellent customer service.
|ALMOST FINISHED: The inside of the wardrobes, with additional shelving to be added|
And now we have wardrobes that we're really pleased with and that make the most of the high ceiling.
Now there's just the rest of the room to decorate!
