Built in storage solutions and fitted wardrobes just in time for the spring clean

Spring is here the daffodils are out so that can only mean one thing; time for the big spring clean and a chance to sort out all the stuff from Christmas and find it a home. Here at DJM Carpentry and Building we have a couple of solutions to help you with storage needs and to keep the house nice and tidy.


Our first option is a custom made built in storage solution. Most houses have dead space i.e. odd shaped rooms, under the stairs;  with many newer houses having lots of these spaces where the house builder has just blocked these spaces off to make building the house quicker and easier. In some cases it’s amazing the space that is wasted in the boxed off areas. What we do is cut a neat hole in the plaster and custom build shelves, draws, hanging rails or a mixture of the three with a door on the front to hide it all away. All our storage solutions are made from MDF perfect to decorate in making it easy to blend in. We can make these out or most timber types if you have seen something you like. Below are some photos of a recent build we have done.





As you can see we fitted draws and a shelf in this one perfect for shoes all hidden away under the stairs with a push to open door on the front to help keep it looking neat. In this case the client chose to decorate it themselves but we do offer a decorating option


The other option we offer is fitted wardrobes again we can custom make these out of MDF to be decorated to match the room or we can organise and fit the factory made fitted wardrobes. With MDF the configurations are endless inside and out with shelves, hanging rails, mirrors and shoe racks wherever you like on the inside and hinged doors or sliding doors, mirrored or plain it’s up to you.
