Every fashion-conscious woman who likes to maintain a variety of clothes for all seasons has, or dreams of, a walk-in wardrobe.

Renovating period homes can be great fun – but also cause quite a few headaches. London’s Victorian and Edwardian builders simply didn’t design houses that accommodate modern tastes for large, freestanding wardrobes with plenty of storage.
Thankfully, specialist joiners and carpenters can help to make every nook and cranny under stairs, in alcoves and under bay windows count as useful storage space and provide bespoke fitted wardrobes that fulfil the required function AND look great in period homes.
