Bringing the wonders of Narnia into the home

A custom-fitted wardrobe, which conceals a door through to a luxury bathroom, adds a touch of magic to a London home. A wonderful benefit of commissioning bespoke interior features and furniture is that you can make your fantasy come true. A great example is this fitted wardrobe that Creative Woodwork installed for a client based in Kensington – for whom we devised a chic design with a magical, fairy-tale twist.

Hidden world

Not only does the wardrobe offer a great space for storing clothes, it also conceals a second door that leads through to an en-suite bathroom. It is an enchanting and quirky feature – one that brings to mind C.S Lewis’ captivating tale The Lion, The Witch and Wardrobe, where the closet provides a portal through to a hidden world. In effect, through clever design and craftsmanship we have been able to bring the magic of Narnia into the home.

First-class workmanship

Not only is the concept special, the quality of the workmanship is first-class. The interior of the custom-designed wardrobe is made from fumed eucalyptus, a specialist process which gives the wood its warm, rich chocolate brown colour while the door handles were crafted by Turnstyle Designs who hand-stitched the leather handles. Inside, we also installed LED lighting, which automatically illuminates when the wardrobe doors are opened.

The bathroom beyond

A second door leads through into the bathroom – this slides smoothly to the side, saving space and magically revealing the bathroom beyond. This inner door is more substantial and has a lock, and provides additional soundproofing and privacy when required. It was wonderful project that we loved being involved with and one that the client was thrilled with.

Who wouldn’t want to visit Narnia every day?
