The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Home - - FOCUS - More space­

Just be­cause you have an older home doesn’t mean you can’t get a walk-in wardrobe in­stalled. Cab­i­netry de­sign com­pa­nies such as Space­works can help with retro­fit ideas. Some con­tem­po­rary walk-in robes are sit­u­ated be­hind the bed­head in a gal­ley-style lay­out.

“It’s about tak­ing a room that was pre­vi­ously some­thing else and ded­i­cat­ing it to a walk-in robe,” says Space­works gen­eral man­ager Louella Wood­ham. “We have a lot of peo­ple who want a full-length mir­ror at the end of a walk-in robe. If you have a gal­ley walk-in robe and you put a full wall mir­ror there, it makes the wardrobe look twice as long.

“If there’s a win­dow in the wardrobe, we’ll of­ten put a seat un­der it, such as a 500mm-high bench seat with an up­hol­stered cush­ion, and un­der that there’s room for shoe draw­ers or cup­boards for bags. We’re do­ing those seat­ing ar­range­ments and ac­ces­sory is­lands a lot more.”

The Stegbar Gal­le­ria Tai­lored col­lec­tion in­cludes a se­lec­tion of solid matt colours and tim­ber prints, along with soft-close draw­ers and chrome ac­ces­sories.
