This unit was installed in Wanstead, East London.

Shaker Wardrobe

The doors are a double panelled shaker design. The accessories surrounding the doors, panels, header and plinth are seamless so there are no joints in sight. This makes a shaker design, that is arguably known as a traditional design, become more contemporary and modern. It’s a feature that requires more time to manufacture and therefore is a minimal extra expense but totally worth it for the end result.

To keep the minimal look, the left hand side of the external of the wardrobe has been scribed around the existing skirting.

The unit externally was sprayed in Farrow & Ball’s Mole’s Breath

The internals of the wardrobe are all constructed from 18mm thick birch ply and sprayed in a clear lacquer to show the grain but leaving a smooth finish. The client used birch ply not for the durability factor but for the look that it gives which is why they wanted it to be sprayed in a clear finish. If the sole purpose was the durability, then they could have sprayed the internals in the same (or different) colour as the externals.

The shelves are adjustable for that flexibility factor and the hanging rails are a round polished chrome which is a very standard finish. You can get oval hanging rails too.

The drawers have round finger pulls instead of squared ones to open them and are installed with soft close runners for a nice and easy use.
