Challenges Of Furnishing Period Homes
When it comes to furnishing and storage, period homes can present challenges. This is especially the case when you want to get the maximum amount of storage space possible in a room. The rooms generally have high ceilings, unusual shapes, nooks and crannies and awkward spaces. This is where a good carpenter comes in handy as shop bought furniture is not always the answer.
A Room With An Unusual Shape
In this project, a customer was looking for a fitted wardrobe and open shelving to fill one side of a room. The challenge was that the room was an unusual shape – a bit like a horseshoe.
Using The Room To Its Best Advantage
The solution was to build the wardrobe and shelving around the walls, meeting at an angle. The result? The area was used to its best advantage leaving no unused space and plenty of storage space for clothes and a place for a big shoe collection.
