Your bedroom wardrobe is an element of your home you’ll interact with most, yet it’s amazing how many of us don’t think about making it work best for our individual lifestyles.
A handmade bespoke wardrobe is one of the best ways to efficiently use the space you have, so let’s look at the subtle intricacies to consider when choosing and designing your ideal wardrobe.
