Our house was built in 1956, an ex-Police house. The 50's doors were replaced with your average colonial doors still popular today. Last year all the doors were revamped by re-positioning the handles and door furniture. They were also painted white.
the door to the left of the photo is the second bedroom. Door to the right is 3rd bedroom, Jon uses this as his office/study.....next to be tackled.
I must admit I look at any doors now as I feel with such a design the handles have to be in this position. Strictly speaking the dado rail should be around the same height as the handle and ours are too high. If they had been in the correct position we may have considered keeping it, but the room needs re-plastering so we are removing it and going for the same style we have through the rooms we have revamped.
The wallpaper has certainly aged - stains have started coming through from the original wallpaper paste but 20 odd years is good going.
Yesterday I was looking at wardrobes and measuring up - hence the various scribbles on the wallpaper so I could envisage where the wardrobe would fit.
In the end I went with this one from Argos. The dimensions are Height 2060mm Width 1490mm and Depth 580mm.
Reduced too to £183.99 - Delivered Tuesday November 18th.
I want the room to be clutter-free because after all the view is what it's all about!
