With storage at a premium in modern homes, it is our job as designers to maximise the space available to us. The sloping ceiling in this bedroom meant that there was a lot of wasted inaccessible space behind the existing wardrobes. We proposed creating a kind of hidden loft space behind a new run of bespoke wardrobes, to be accessed by swinging one of the wardrobe cabinets round like a door.
The moving cabinet has wheels at the bottom and was carefully designed to sit unobtrusively within the run of wardrobes, whilst ensuring it opens smoothly and easily. The finished project looks beautiful and gives nothing away about the slightly less organised open storage space behind!
