Home Living : September 8th 2009
10 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, September 8, 2009 Wardrobes to fit any room HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE ASK THE EXPERTS Wanting to match new work with existing paintwork, Brenda Andrews asks if this is possible when installing a new wardrobe. The resident home storage expert at Wardrobes by CIBO, Wendy Bryan, has many years' experience in kitchen, bathroom and wardrobe design. ''We work with clients and interior designers to create ideal storage solutions for the home,'' she said. ''We can absolutely match new with existing as we specialise in custom colours, and offer any Dulux colour in a matt or gloss polyurethane finish. ''We also have an extensive range of Lamiwood colours and timber veneers to choose from.'' I have a wardrobe that has gaps and splits, with shelves that are bowing. Are your wardrobes made to last? At CIBO we fit solid backs and solid bases together (by screw, not staple or nail gun) to ensure quality and structural longevity. The ceilings in my home are quite high; I don't want a gap between the wardrobe and ceiling -- can you accommodate my needs? As we custom-make each wardrobe, we design and manufacture them to individual needs. With rooms with high ceilings, you have the option of incorporating a shadow line above the wardrobe or it can be finished with a plaster mould or cornice to suit. I also want to fit out my children's bedroom with a wardrobe, desks and shelving. Can you do it all? Yes, we're experts in all kinds of home storage. We often use glass on the work surface to protect the joinery or we can manufacture with colour board, which is more economical and a durable option. We also design and make other home storage solutions such as linen cabinets and entertainment units. I'm not happy with the wardrobes in my new home. The track is wide and hard to clean. The doors bump into each other and don't close completely. Are there good sliding-door wardrobes? We overcome problems with sliding doors by using the best fittings, including top-fitted tracks, which fully support the load of the door. How long does it take for the wardrobe to be made and installed? The average turnaround from order is four weeks. It takes one to two days to install. We prefer to use a solid plinth or kickplate system (rather than plastic legs) and it takes time to level and build the wardrobe on top of it. It's important to have a solid base. How much is a hinged wardrobe? It depends on what finish and drawer type you select. We have a really attractive fingerpull-style door called the Blancrou. We can offer it in any Dulux colour with three hinged doors, at 240cm high, from $2900, with delivery and installation in the Sydney metropolitan area. We have cheaper Lamiwood doors. I don't want mirrored fronts on my wardrobes, however I do need a mirror in the bedroom, what would you suggest? We have a great full-length mirror which we put into the inside of the wardrobe door using a 180-degree hinge that folds back, and we often fit another mirror for a back view. This is on display in our showroom. Details: Wardrobes by CIBO showroom 8669 1706 or visit 130 Old Pittwater Rd, Brookvale.
