Hinged Wardrobe Doors

Client: Mr B – Hazelbrook

Designer: Kevin Sorby

Wardrobe Type: Built in

Doors: 2 box router, hinged door

Finish: White satin polyurethane

Mr B’s Hazelbrook cottage had 2800 mm high ceilings. He wanted to maximise his wardrobe storage using all of the available height. Hinged wardrobe doors are generally 18 mm thick so trying to make a single door reach the ceiling would be fraught with problems (the biggest one being bowing of the doors).

In order to satisfy the design brief I designed the lower doors to be 2100 mm high and then I placed overhead doors above them. The overhead doors were fitted with push catches.
