If you’re looking to cover an alcove chimney breast with a wardrobe, here’s a general step-by-step guide to help you with the process:

  1. Measure the space: Start by measuring the width, height, and depth of the alcove chimney breast. These measurements will help you choose an appropriately sized wardrobe.
  2. Select a wardrobe: Look for a freestanding wardrobe that fits the dimensions of the alcove chimney breast. Consider the style, design, and material that will complement your room decor.
  3. Prepare the alcove: Clear out any existing furniture or objects from the alcove. Ensure that the area is clean and free of dust or debris.
  4. Position the wardrobe: Carefully place the wardrobe in the alcove, ensuring it fits snugly and aligns with the surrounding walls. Make any necessary adjustments to ensure stability.
  5. Secure the wardrobe: If the wardrobe has an anchoring mechanism, use it to secure the wardrobe to the wall. This will provide additional stability and prevent tipping.
  6. Consider ventilation: If the alcove chimney breast is still in use, it’s crucial to maintain proper ventilation. Ensure that the wardrobe doesn’t obstruct the chimney flue or any vents. Consult a professional if necessary.
  7. Customize the wardrobe interior: Depending on your needs, you may want to customize the wardrobe’s interior. Add shelves, hanging rods, or drawers to maximize storage space and optimize functionality.
  8. Finishing touches: Once the wardrobe is in place, add any decorative elements or accessories to enhance the overall appearance. Consider painting or wallpapering the alcove walls to blend with the wardrobe or create an accent feature.

It’s important to note that covering an alcove chimney breast with a wardrobe may have implications for fire safety. Always adhere to local building codes and regulations and consult with professionals, such as contractors or carpenters, if you have any concerns or specific requirements.
