Meet the Aune Westrum family! At long last their new home is ready. From drawing the initial plans to actually moving in has taken some time. Prepare yourselves though! What a feast for the eyes it is! Cheerful colours, exciting features and personal solutions all through. It is also apparent that functional storage solutions are important for this family. They started planning the storage setup for their new home long before construction began. Let’s go in and take a look!
The previous wardrobe was impractical. It is difficult to keep high, deep shelves neat and tidy. Piles of clothes topple over and quickly become a chaotic jumble. The top of the wardrobe simply collects dust and is a dead area that serves no useful purpose. So it was replaced with a brand-new, made-to-measure wardrobe with sliding doors on the wall at the foot end of the bed. With sliding doors from floor to ceiling, there is no dead space and the mirror doors make the room feel more spacious. They are also great for checking hair and clothes before stepping out the door.
The new wardrobe is only one metre wide but has much more space than the old one. There are two 45-cm-wide sections inside the wardrobe. One is fitted with gliding mesh drawers and shelves, and the other with shelves and rails for hanging clothes at different heights. This system allows Kathrine to make modifications as Leon grows or needs other interior solutions.
We wanted to make good use of every space available in Leon’s room, including the wall behind the door. The front door and entrance of the house are just outside Leon’s bedroom door. So a mini wardrobe was installed behind the door inside his room where he can hang his footwear and jackets rather than in the hallway with his mum’s things. Open shelves for shoes and caps, and hooks for jackets and rucksacks. And he can inspect himself in the new mirrors to make sure he looks just right!
The metal shelves are easy to mount using integrated brackets and are reversible for use with the small edge turned either up or down. They are ideal for footwear as they are easy to clean and move.
