I used to be a major procrastinator. I'd sit on things generally because I feared change and making wrong decisions. But over the last 18 months, I've consciously challenged these thought patterns and by not putting my head in the sand and knowing that whatever happens will work out, I've been able to make shifts away from this mindset. It has been incredibly freeing and rewarding and most importantly, I'm really proud of myself. What does this have to do with wardrobes? Although not a life changing decision, I've been wanting to have these built for the last 4 years! So I've got Billy the carpenter coming around tonight to discuss building new wardrobes for two of my bedrooms.
The master bedroom will encompass the majority of work as I'm planning to cover a whole wall with floor to ceiling wardrobes. The room is a typical Victorian bedroom with two alcoves and a fireplace in the centre. I don't really use this fireplace and as it is only a whole in the wall, I will be looking to cover it to create a clean, uniform wardrobe design. The trick for me is to ensure that the door design doesn't have the affect of making the room feel small and overcrowded.
So how am I going to do this? By keeping things simple and creating a harmonising colour palette. I had thought about introducing mouldings or pattern to create interest but I believe this will only overwhelm the room. So I have whittled down my ideas to two options: either keeping the doors plain with statement handles or introducing a very subtle line moulding horizontally and around the door edges. No matter which option I decide upon, the doors will be painted the same colour as the walls of the room. I can't wait to get started. What are your favourite wardrobe designs?
