THE ART OF FITTING IT ALL IN
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.
