Sometimes Lego is more about the parents than it is about children!
This project was borne of an idea to tidy up the playroom by creating three rolling cabinets to contain Lego brick boxes.
Often people will ask us which is the best material for making wardrobes.
The short answer is:
“The best material to use for fitted wardrobes is 18mm thick Melamine Faced Chipboard (MFC)”
We can make your wardrobes in a wide range of materials ranging from MDF to real wood veneers to high gloss acrylic. What makes MFC ‘best’?
Short answer again:
But I want my wardrobes in real wood!
Real wood is used to a much lesser extent in fitted furniture. This is because
Wood movement can be mitigated by using real wood veneers with an MDF core. But even then the relative increased cost and the need for finish means MFC is preferred.
A tambour door is one that rolls up. This is an ideal solution for a cupboard with items which are frequently used during cooking or baking as content is accessible whilst the door is up – without a door being in the way. Once the tambour door is down, all is hidden and out of sight.
A tambour door works well as well as a door for a wall-hung unit that comes right down on to the worktop – i.e. toaster or kettle on the worktop are quickly hidden behind the roll-up door for a clean-look kitchen counter.
