Bespoke Furniture Built Over A Stair Bulkhead

With lots of properties in Essex being new builds, a majority have in one of the bedrooms a stair bulkhead.

The Stair Bulkhead is the part of the stairs that protrude into the room above.

Either a small slope or large box they take up valuable space,that isn't used efficiently.

It can affect where you can put existing furniture in the room.

We have had recently two commissions from two different clients to build a wardrobe and cabin bed to accommodate and use this unused and unwanted space.

Our first commision was to design and build a cabin bed for a client in Langdon Hills for their daughter.

They had a small sloped bulkhead,which was a tricky shape to build around, however we came up with a solution that also used the slope to have shelves on them for books or just for display.

This install took 3 days to fit and was hand painted in satin white paint.There was lots of storage including a storage are in the head board for a Bed time story book.

Our customer was very happy and this what they had to say-

"LH - Langdon Hills - January 2019-Highly recommend Simon - very professional, great communication. We needed something specific and Simon was great at ensuring we maximised the space effectively. Very happy with the end result! 5 stars"

We were then asked to make for our clients in Rochford, a bespoke wardrobe over a Box Stairwell Bulkhead.

This is the most common bulkhead seen in many new build homes.

Our clients wanted to remove the existing freestanding wardrobe that was taking up lots of space and have a compact wardrobe maximizing the space in the room. As it was a childs room, it would provide a lot more floor space for playing.

The wardrobe was constructed to have hanging rails and shelf space.

It was finished in a water based Satin white paint and the doors were hung on soft close concealed hinges with push to open feature to eliminate the use of handles.Shelves were all to be adjustable. There was also a shelf above the hanging rail to maximise storage.This job took 2 days to deliver and install, which is all included in our price.

This was the feedback we received from our customer-

"SA - Rochford - April 2019- Hi Simon, many thanks for all your hard work the last two days, S loves her new cupboard and is looking forward to filling it soon! It's perfect thank you"
