Home & Furnishing: The Wardrobe Story

Recommended Posts

Yup. Can turn more then 90 degree - not sure can reach 180 not ( as in not sure can push in after 180 turn).

No problem with pulling out so far.

We got it free as we sign the closet package at expo when they are doing the promotion .

Simon

The whole idea was to not make it look too much like a wardrobe... hence the niches to place stuff... ie. like the pics below

Do you change the whole wardrobe or just change the doors?

I changed the whole wardrobe.

No point changing the doors only... cos then u will need to relaminate the rest of the structure, and the internal configuration may also not be what you want. Relaminating already costs 60-70% of the wardrobe cost...

- i noe lah. u so famous in Renotalk, y i dunoe urs oleady done some time ago.

- Sengkang rite. :notti:

- aniway,

(1) heavy duty hinges 2 support e wardrobe or cabinet door can b found & can b done.

(2) wardrobe door 2 mount LCD tv, unlikely 2b able 2.

(3) wardrobe framework or body 2 mount LCD tv can b done, provided e support panel 2 carry e load is thicker. Dat means e side panel.

- e doors for wardrobe & cabinet r e same type of composition & similar in construction.

- hollow core or flush type of construction.

- solid wood or solid plywood frame + bracing + plywood skin + laminate finished, pvc or hardwood trimmings & handles.

- e 'body' or rather e main 'framework', is diferent frm e door leafs, b it wardrobe or cabinet.

- solid plywood = layers of plywood compressed & bind 2gether, no matter e thickness. Can see e layers wen lookin at e section (e thickness).

- solid plywood frame + plywood skin + laminate finished surface & trimmings. Other types of trimmings depends on size.

- e other conventional type or rather e more expensive type, shd b e solid wood construction with lacquer finish.

- door leafs or carpentry framework, all olso beli e heavy & sturdy.

- solid wood which can see e grain or eye, smooth finished with lacquer or paint. Eg. nytoh door. Classic, Victorian type of design uses this, can b in any color finish.

- internal shelving can be solid wood finished or solid plywood finished.

- earlier days, cheaper version is e chipboard type, b it doors of frame. Chipboard is e compressed of small wood & cork fillings in2 a ply with thickness.

Points 4 u 2 consider->

- 1 wardrobe door leaf is how wide, ur LCD tv how wide?

- wardrobe door leaf is which type of construction?

- wher e tv bracket b fixing onto?

- electrical wiring & cables between power source & tv?

- antenna?

- e above is based on my limited knowledge.

:yamseng:

- bopian, space constraint.

:rolleyes:

- k. I'l check & PM u then.

- saw ur list of works 2b done under ur siggy, so u gona coordinate ur own?

:o

- got increase meh?

- e range is stil e same. Depends on who u get & wat type of wardrobe, wat materials & how's e construction like.

- u get wat u pay stil applies.

- shd b starting frm $220pfr..

- pricing for new carpentry works to New Apt. & pricing for carpentry to Existing/Resale Apt. is different.

- gota take in2 considerations e dismantling of existing carpentry & e touching up of affected areas.

- & coordinating e takin care of e surrounding furnitures & fittings.

:sport-smiley-004:

wat are the things that must be carefully checked? i am using the back of my MBR wardrobe as a "featured wall", and will be mounting a 42" lcd tv using the back of the wardrobe. my contractor say he will be adding an extra layer of wood partition at the back, and also reinforced wood at the mounting area.

any other stuffs to take note?

thanks!
