Walk-in wardrobes for Concord House in Birmingham

Published - 17 Sep 2015
At Sliding Wardrobes World, we can accommodate all kinds of bespoke storage projects, whether you're looking to maximise a small space, or create a big impression. If you'd like a sneak peak at how we are bringing contemporary storage design into new housing, you need look no further than our recent Concord House project. Concord House is a new development in Birmingham, and once finished it will feature four luxury penthouses with brilliant rooftop terraces, as well as 15 loft-style apartments. Of course, a cutting edge development of this kind requires stylish, bespoke storage solutions, and 
that's where we come in. Here's a brief overview of the features our specialists took into account during the project, along with some photos of the finished results. 
 
The first apartment's style

For this apartment, we constructed a made-to-measure unit with an Ecco Walnut Wood finish. The 'U' shaped design makes full use of the space in the room, while creating a walk-in wardrobe that remains perfectly in-sync with the existing fixtures. A cut out section encompasses the mirror and double socket, while bespoke shelves are designed to accommodate specific sizes of suitcase. There are no back panels to this particular wardrobe, allowing more room for storage, as well as hanging space for various lengths of clothing. There are LED lights above each hanging space as well as the central vanity unit, making for an overall feature that remains practical and welcoming. Finally, soft close drawers help maintain a peaceful space with the right tactile experience. Overall, the finished design gives a perfect presentation of cutting-edge style, whilst at the same time retaining the practical and comfortable features that no good walk-in-wardrobe should be without.

In the second apartment we incorporated a stylish mixture of wood finishes for the final look. The drawers feature a sleek combination of Egger Brown Grey Avola and Egger Champagne Avola, while the lower part of the vanity unit is given presence and warmth by a strong Stone Grey finish. Despite this wide range of woods, the final result is clearly a perfect tonal blend, providing a space that evokes a sense of Far Eastern reverence, and pure, minimalist design sensibilities. 
 
Overall, the 'U' shaped wardrobe gives a smart, professional impression, while remaining welcoming. The sleekness and shine of the space is enhanced by the LED strips running throughout the design. For this, the customer wanted lighting which remained flush with the shelf surface above each hanging, as well as LED illuminated glass shelves and an additional LED strip in the crown of the walk in wardrobe. To achieve this we made use of KLUS Design profiles, which you can see remain unobtrusive, but illuminate every necessary space in a subtle and suitable fashion.

The bar handles of the drawers are of a Hettich Brema design, built for heavy use, and made in a robust but sleek style. Again, all drawers feature a soft close action, keeping the atmosphere appropriate for anyone's quiet morning rituals. In its form and symmetry the design remains practical and easy to use, whilst looking stunning.
