Blogger Review of Her Dream Wardrobes - Part Two25th September
Sharps have teamed up with Blogger Jo, creator of Slummy Single Mummy, to document the installation process and the storage benefits of our fitted wardrobes!
I have never been very good at keeping my clothes tidy. As a teenager my bedroom was so obscenely messy that I once trod on my guitar and didn’t realise until a few days later. Not any more.
No more puddles of clothes on the floor or stacks of washing needing a home. Oh no. Because I have THE WARDROBES OF DREAMS. (Otherwise known as my new built-in wardrobes from Sharps.)
I admit that I was nervous during the planning process. (Read about that bit here.) I’ve never had proper built in wardrobes before and I was worried that they might look a bit, I don’t know, tacky maybe? I’m not even sure that’s the right word, but hopefully you know what I mean. I think it was just that built in wardrobes felt like such a grown up thing to have – how could they be cool at the same time??
But OH MY GOODNESS they are SO cool. (Or my definition of cool at least.)
You have to empty the room and take the carpets up before your fitter arrives. They don’t fit wardrobes on top of the carpet because they need a firm, sturdy surface. The space like this looks pretty small, but here it is with the wardrobes.
For starters, I want to say how totally 100% impressed I was with the quality of the fitting. You almost don’t notice, because it’s so good that they look like they have always been there, but when you actually LOOK at how the fitter has shaped each individual edge to fit the walls and ceiling exactly, and then filled it all so neatly – it’s very impressive. He worked non-stop for an entire day and cleared everything up after himself. I really cannot say enough that’s positive about the fitting.
You can see from the picture what I mean – the ceiling is actually not straight, but the frame has been cut to perfectly fit it. Around the skirting boards as well, and in the corners, it’s just a dream. The wardrobes also come with a 12 year product guarantee, so you have peace of mind should anything go wrong.
I went for a mix of matt and gloss white glass. I wanted something that was going to be fairly neutral colour wise, and I didn’t want it to be full of mirrors or anything. I definitely do NOT need to see myself full on naked first thing in the morning. The strip of gloss glass is fairly reflective though, and I love that when you’re in bed you get a strip of the trees outside. That’s just about enough for me.
The doors and the drawers inside are soft close, which is a nice extra touch and means you’re not always have to slide the doors closed carefully. I can just get dressed, swoosh the door shut and saunter off in a sassy way.
Let’s have a look inside shall we?
