Maximising space around an extremely awkward slope

Peter and Jo Kite moved into a house that lacked storage and featured an extreme slope in their master bedroom. They were keen to invest in fitted wardrobes and turned to Sharps to solve the problem.

Moving from a house with plenty of storage to a new build without a wardrobe in sight, Peter and Jo had their minds set on fitted wardrobes.

As well as no storage, their master bedroom featured an extreme slope that gave the room an awkward shape, which they thought would keep them from having their dream wardrobes. Peter recalls: “We saw that Sharps designed fitted wardrobes around awkward angles and thought you’d be able to help”. So, they gave us a call to see what solutions we could come up with.

We paid a visit to Peter and Jo to take a closer look at their master bedroom. And they were delighted with our solutions

We had a design visit from Sharps and looked into an independent carpenter, but decided to go with Sharps.


Our designer, Rachel, gave us some fantastic ideas for a brilliant price and my wife loved the styles and storage options that Sharps offered

With the extreme slope in one corner of the bedroom, Rachel designed bespoke wardrobes in a wide variety of sizes to fit around the awkward feature. From standard height doors to small cupboards, she made the most of Peter and Jo’s master bedroom space, which is exactly what they wanted: “She used the space to the absolute maximum and has created so much storage space for us, and it looks great too”.

Storage wise, they opted for double hanging, single hanging, drawers and shelves, giving a space to all their belongings.

With a background in events management and a BA Hons in Fine Art, her ability to combine a strong eye for composition and colour with robust organisational skills has led to art direction, set design, prop sourcing and styling. Clients include John Lewis, Matalan, Ikea, Tesco Home, DFS, Morso, Amazon, Marks & Spencer, Sharps and Neff.

Along with bespoke design options, we also have a selection of ranges and finishes too. So, your fitted wardrobe is tailored to you in every way. Peter and Jo chose our Element range. To keep the overall look sleek and simple, the doors were designed without handles and fitted with our touch-catch feature.

And as well as being thrilled with their new wardrobes, they were over the moon with our service too

Everyone we encountered with Sharps were really lovely and helpful. Our fitter, Simon, was smashing. We’ve had a really great experience overall and we even ended up having Sharps furniture in a few other rooms in the house
