EAUX speaks to Lorelei Firbank to find out how bespoke storage can benefit your home office.
There is a growing trend for having a dedicated office space in the home. As a place where concentration is paramount, it seems that it pays to keep clutter tidied away. Research carried out by the National Association of Professional Organisers has shown that an untidy office leads to a loss of productivity. It’s important to have a dedicated space to store that all-important paperwork but instead of a noisy grey filing cabinet or dull set of drawers you can transform your study with the installation of Sliderobes.
These built-in storage units work really well in a home-office environment as they are made to measure so sizes can vary according to the space available. ‘We can even work around those chimney breasts, awkward alcoves and sloping ceilings,’ explains Lorelei Firbank, director, at Sliderobes. Not only that, but the interior can be tailored for file storage, desk and computing space and whatever you wish to store. ‘We can fill those awkward little nooks and crannies with shelving, hanging or space to store suitcases, hat boxes and other things that just don’t seem to have a home of their own!’
It’s not just modern homes that built-in storage spaces work well in; the vast array of coverings available mean that Sliderobes can be suited to any room and any style of home, whether you’ve a contemporary pad, modern mansion or traditional cottage.
Lorelei explains that you can choose from a wide variety of different coloured wood effects for a classic feel and opt for fun coloured glass to be incorporated into the design, for a more modern twist. ‘We can offer lots of mirrors both tinted and silvered and stunning coloured glass finishes, all of which are designed to give the customer exactly what they want. This in turn makes in-keeping with colour schemes an easy process and gives the desired effect of creating clean lines and the feeling of space.’
The showroom is based on Goddard Road in Ipswich to allow easy access for clients who want to see Sliderobes in action. Customers are encouraged to visit the showroom, which is open seven days a week, to see the quality of build first hand. If you can’t make it in one of the team can send out brochures. If you just can’t wait, we encourage you to take look at the extensive website.
The team are keen on making the process of choosing, purchasing and installing as smooth as possible. ‘One of our skilled design team will visit your home for an appointment to go through the design process after discussing requirements and dimensions,’ explains Lorelei. The design appointment takes about one hour with no obligation to purchase.
