White and Oak Fitted Wardrobe
We loved designing and making this very special wardrobe for a 1930’s semi in Bristol. The design is modern and contemporary but the style is surely timeless. The clean lines and the oak face frames are a style which will look great forever.
The English oak gives it warmth and character while the white doors and drawer fronts keep it not imposing in the room. The interior and carcass is made from oak veneered birch plywood and finished in 3 coats of Osmo oil, beautifully smooth and a nice warm interior. We added cut-out finger pull handles with more oak behind as a little detail to the piece.
The plinth has three push to open secret drawers in it. This maximises on storage space within every inch of this wardrobe. Drawers are so useful when they are full extension soft close runners. The shelves are movable and the top cupboards are push to open.
Doors are primed and hand painted, here in Tikkurilla furniture paint in ‘chalk’ colour. This was a wonderful paint to use and it has left such a great matt finish. These doors and drawer fronts in this colour really look great against the Oak. We now often use Tikkurilla furniture paint since making this wardrobe.
As usual all our drawers are on full extension soft close runners, they glide beautifully smoothly. See our blog for ideas on choosing a fitted wardrobe.
