48" wide x 77" high x 21" deep overall
18" internal depth.
This piece separates into cornice, upper cupboard and chest below. The cupboard section has an internal drop of 38" which allows for the hanging of jackets, trousers and shirts.
Linen presses are the most eminently practical pieces for contemporary living. They come in two parts -upper cupboard and lower chest of drawers - so they can be taken up all but the most restricted stairways. Almost invariably, they are deep enough to accommodate clothes hangers and they have a very small ratio of footprint to storage capacity.
Triple wardrobes almost invariably dismantle to go up stairways and for transport purposes. Double wardrobes often don't separate. We can advise prior to purchase.
The internal depth of a wardrobe (from front to back) should be 18" (46cms.) if it is intended for everyday use.
Spare room wardrobes can have a reduced internal depth since the clothes can be hung at a slight angle - this is based on the assumption that guests aren't coming for a prolonged period...if they are, you may have other more important concerns!
The internal drop for hanging clothes needs to be around 38" (96 cms.). If you're thinking of economising on space, then with one rail above another for shorter clothes (shirts trousers etc.) a minimum internal height should be 72" (183 cms.).
We can fit hanging rails to your requirements.
