Case Study: Handmade Fitted Wardrobes - Hitchin, Hertfordshire



Handmade Wardrobes Hitchin
Hand Built Bedrooms Hitchin

We were commissioned to design, make & install all the units required in our clients master bedroom.


This included a main wardrobe, a bespoke angled wardrobe, a bay window unit, a tall boy & bedside units.


They had lots of ideas themselves but just needed someone to put it all together and suggest some options.

After a visit to their home with an array of samples, we went for a traditional shaker style throughout but

using spray painted doors & drawer fronts to give it a more modern, crisp edge.


Solid oak was used on all work tops, end panels, cornice & plinth to then give it a luxury feel.


By protecting the solid oak worktops with glass they will keep pristine.

Matching bedside units & a tall boy were made to match, providing more valuable storage.


Blum full extension soft close drawers were used throughout.

^^Above:The main feature of the room was an impressive break fronted wardrobe. By pulling out the centre unit we were able to gain quite a bit of depth to allow extra hanging room for shirts etc.


Internal drawers were also used to really increase the storage available. Scalloped drawer fronts were used on these to keep them handleless


Our client then chose some lovely handles & knobs for the external doors/drawers which finished the units off beautifully.


By using oak quad end panels it gave a smooth rounded edge to this unit which set it off really well...Timeless but classy.

Hand Crafted Wardrobes Hitchin

A bespoke unit was made to fit into the bay window recess perfectly. Being able to determine the required widths of shelving & drawer depths to meet the clients needs was ideal. This is the beauty of bespoke furniture.

>>Left: Like a lot of older houses there was a vaulted ceiling to deal with at the far end of the room but by designing a bespoke wardrobe unit with a bifold door on the top box it made very good use of the space. Internal shoe drawers are a great addition to this unit.
