When we moved house we inherited a master bedroom with fine beech fitted furniture. The bed space was between two single wardrobes with bridging wall units and elegant cornicing, but with no room at all for bedside tables. We wanted a practical rearrangement while retaining the furniture and storage capacity of the bedroom. This seemed to be an awkward brief to fulfil, but not for Wojciech! He devised an ingenious solution which involved dismantling the separate units, creating a double wardrobe from the single ones, reducing the depth of the bridging units and stacking them to fit over an existing chest of drawers. With an eye for detail he completed the new tall unit using a side redundant from the wardrobes, to create a visually pleasing unbroken line. By careful cutting, he had just enough cornicing for both the double wardrobe and storage chest. He also installed new wall lights and repositioned electrical sockets and switches. He and his team worked speedily and good heartedly and also did some necessary redecoration. The job was done in a day and a half, except that he came back to fit a whole length of skirting (at no extra cost) rather than leave or fill in a 2 inch gap, and later to fit a matching light switch. As well as being practical, it all looks nice and we are delighted.
