This morning I had a visit from the man from Sliderobes. For those that do not know, they install the most amazing sliding doors in the world. They also build wardrobes (and other storage solutions) where ever you want them.
In two of our bedrooms we have a chimney breast – it’s the two sides of the same one. It makes an alcove in both rooms into which I attached some chrome poles to act as hanging space. It all works pretty well but Mirinda is rather sick of the dust that coats her coats and so the bullet was bit and I called the folks at Sliderobes.
We’ve used them before and were very pleased with the result. That was at Haslemere and they built in a giant wardrobe across one wall with humungous mirrors for doors. The ones in Farnham, however, have to look very different.
We are trying to go for an Arts & Craft theme throughout the house (we need something to match all the antique furniture) so the wardrobes need to look like wood and be a flat, antique white. This caused a bit of a problem and I was thinking it wasn’t going to happen when Dave pulled out a brochure with the perfect doors. While they’re not wood, they certainly look like it and they appear to be tongue in groove as well.
He set about drawing up the plans, entering them into his computer and then, eventually printing them off. I liked what I saw. I have ordered them and we should have wardrobes in five weeks.
A jolly good days work, I’d say.
