Large storage drawers and Wardrobe

Client brief:

To make best use of an awkward sloping alcove space. .

No handles please!

Beforehand : deep recess of around 900mm; luckily the velux window meant that there was enough head room for you to stand next to the drawers. I made full use of the depth as well as the height, by making staggered drawers up into the pitched section

Grooved section to the top edge of each drawer to act as a Pull and a false drawer at the top to keep balance


And huge depth to the drawers of around 800mm, though the excellent runners mean they are easy to open even when loaded up.

The velux meant plenty of light over the drawers as well as the extra headroom.

The second part of the project was to build in a wardrobe and shelving to a sloping recess
