Caroline in Oxfordshire designed this stylish bedroom with high-gloss, mirror cabinet and custom made desk.
The high-gloss, floor to ceiling cabinets fits beautifully into this bedroom with sloped ceilings. To follow the slope of the ceiling the cabinets are angled in depth dimension using our Cabinet Designer online design tool.
The cabinet’s interior consists of 4 white MFC carcasses, which are built individually – this makes the build easier and the wardrobe much stronger. Once the carcasses are built, they are shuffled into position and joined to each other using 30mm long wood screws.
Scribe pieces are supplied to hide the gaps between wall and cabinet side (see Gaps – Scribe pieces). Caroline chose to have 3 carcasses with hanging rails and one narrower carcass with shelves.
The curved custom made desk is high-gloss as well. It’s generally not advised to use high-gloss on horizontal surfaces as dust settles on it, but if you are a clean person, you are a clean person. This is just one rule, and rules are there to be broken.
The Blum Movento drawers and Blum Motion doors on the sideboard are all Slow-Closing (see Slow-Closing). For her made-to-measure desk Caroline specified the curved profile. This was machined by a flatbed CNC in our workshop. We supplied a stainless steel cable outlet and a stainless steel desk leg to finish off the stylish desk.
To make the mirrored doors we provided 15mm thick white primed MDF blanks. These were taken to a local glazier and 4mm mirror glass was bonded to it. The end result was a custom size mirrored doors ready hinged in a thickness that matched the 19mm thick gloss doors.
