IS YOUR WARDROBE ALL HUNG-UP ON A DROOPING HANGING RAIL?
How can an old fitted sliding door wardrobe be transformed into a stunning stylised space saving design?
The old syndrome of a single shelf and hanging rail in the wardrobe is OLD HAT and sagging!
The stuff we don’t use often is thrown up to the top shelf and the rest is dumped into the lower floor area amongst the shoes, boots, trainers and a few other commonly used articles, while the clothes we choose to hang up claim pride of place on the sagging hanging rail that the installer failed to support at the centre – and because the clothes we hang are generally of a shorter length, the space below is cluttered and disorganised in jumbled heaps of stuff. There may well have been some effort in a time gone by where a free standing shoe rack or shelving unit has been dropped in to help organise something but it is now difficult to fine amongst the heaps of accumulation.
A familiar picture??
How on earth can we sort this lot out and access what we want, when we want? Being the only wardrobe available to store these items some real re-modelling can solve everything!
Renovate is to innovate and facilitate!
Sort out the stuff into KEEP and OUT.
Decide on the hanging space needed – is there enough height to allow double hanging – one rail above the other behind one or maybe two of the sliding doors? Remember to allow some more for the clothes you haven’t bought yet.
Divide the wardrobe up into divisions behind the doors
We may now have space for additional shelves, perhaps a drawer set or other desirable accessories; pull-outs - trouser hanger, belt hanger, baskets, linen bag, shoe racks, pull-down hanger; perhaps some additional shelves and pockets. Think about other uses and what else needs to be kept in the wardrobe – do you work from home? A hidden work desk and file storage may be an idea, or a vanity unit for the lady of the house.
Finally, change the sliding doors to a new attractive design. Coloured glass, mirrors, wood grain, a combination of each, maybe a decorative band of a different material or colour – add a touch of class.
Now you have a plan for an organised, practical well laid out fitted wardrobe that doubles as an attractively styled room feature.
