People are trying to renovate rather than relocate because it’s so expensive with legal fees, stamp duty and estate agents costs when you go about purchasing a new property. If you can find extra space utilising the attic rooms or adding a loft extension it can save a lot of the cost and heartache but will still give you the potential to have the house you always dreamt of.
Rather than letting sloping ceilings deter you from transforming attic rooms, make use of what you have and turn it into a design feature. Freestanding wardrobes might not be a possibility where space is compromised. You might not have adequate height across the whole room to accommodate them so you need to weigh up suitable options to deal with all those awkward slants.
Although a sloping ceiling might normally leave you short of space with the right angled fitted furniture you can really make the most of what you have. Sloping ceiling wardrobes tailored to your needs is better solution, made to measure they can fit any angle and offer a combination of hanging space, shelves and drawers. Then you do not need to add a chest of drawers or other additional furniture (aside from the bed!) to the room, as everything is incorporated into one clever wardrobe design giving you more floor space when you really need it.
Sloping or angled doors mean the most awkward of ceilings can be transformed into useful and practical storage
and the results can be quite eye catching. You can even consider having sliding wardrobe doors so they do open into the room if the other furniture is close to the wardrobe itself. Aspects like this are one of the many things designers can run through with you to find a wardrobe arrangement that would meet (and most likely exceed!) your requirements. Going bespoke gives you much more flexibility than buying freestanding furniture. Also there is less wasted space, as you do not necessarily need back panels on a custom-built sloping loft wardrobe as everything is secured onto the wall unlike the freestanding options.
Approaching sloping ceiling rooms in this manner you soon can transform a small room into one with multiple possibilities. Improving your property in this way will only add to its value, you are showing people how much space can be created through the correct furniture choices. Sadly not everyone has that vision and will rule out re-modelling smaller rooms, which is a real shame when you see just how much can be achieved.
