Custom Bedroom Wardrobes < go back
Location:Derby , Derbyshire
Start Date : 31/03/2015
Program Duration: 5 days ( 4 workshop ; 1 on-site )

Cathy lives in an old cottage, with lots of character, nooks and crannies. She wanted to maximise the storage space available in her bedroom, in the alcoves to left and right of the chimney breast. Being an old building, the ceilings sloped into the space as well, and the walls were very uneven.

In the workshop I designed and built the drawer units, frames and shelving for 2 double wardrobes. Cathy wanted something in keeping with the rest of the property, so an old pine feel and look was decided upon, the doors being what you might call cottage plank style.

With jobs such as these, extensive preparation minimises the hassle and disruption to the customer. Everything was ready and finished before installation, which luckily took just one day. Time was . Time was spent making sure the wardrobes fitted exactly to the walls and ceiling, with architrave and plinths finishing the job, top and bottom.

I was pleased that the project seemed to go well, and achieved the authentic look that Cathy wanted, as well as minimising the disruption to her working day.


"A friend of mine recommended Jeff. He is very professional, and honest about how and when he can do the job. He built me some wardrobes, and he is a Master Craftsman, and not overly expensive. I was able to work and just leave him to it. Jeff is very tidy and reliable, and I have no hesitation in recommending him."
