Built-in wardrobe fitted around the chimney breast

A fitted wardrobe can be installed around the chimney breast. As a result It's creating deep storage space inside the alcove wardrobe sections. In addition a shallow space, normally for shoes, inside the wardrobe compartments at the front of the chimney breast. These wardrobe sections at the front of the chimney can come out slightly creating more space inside. Therefore this step makes the wardrobe design very unique and brings some beauty into your bedroom. Read more...
