What Should I Look for in a Wardrobe Design?
The wardrobe needs to be a versatile space. As well as hanging clothes and folded jumpers, it is usually the place where you hide birthday and Christmas presents, where you keep spare linen or towels as well as a whole heap of other things that don’t seem to have a home of their own, so they migrate to the wardrobe.
The truth is, flat-pack wardrobes have a very poor design. They are a cavernous space that sees a lot of it under-used if used at all.
This is why when you are designing a wardrobe, you need to bear in mind the following factors:
- Every bit of space should be utilised
Some wardrobes have full-length hanging space which is fabulous… or is it? Do you need it? How many full-length dresses do you have or long frock coats etc.? very few we would imagine so if that is the case, full-length hanging needs to be the smallest space in the wardrobe.
- Under-shelf storage
How on earth can you store under the shelf, you may be asking? The answer is simple with slide on baskets. These baskets have two arms at either end which slides over the shelf. Clothes can sit on top over the arms and small items can be places in the basket underneath. A great way to store rolled up ties, we think.
- Look down!
Many people associate the bottom of the wardrobe with long-lost flip-flops and shoes but the base of your wardrobe can be used for so much more. Having a bespoke wardrobe created just for you also means you can have drawers fitted in the wardrobe, which is far better use of floor space that simply throwing in your shoes, never to be seen again for a long, long time.
- Above your head
It can be a bit of a nuisance wobbling on top of a chair pulling all kinds of things down from the shelving above your head, but with a bespoke wardrobe this is far easier. Things that you don’t use often should be stored above head height – anything from big blankets to spare towels etc. – can be safely stored in boxes. Make sure you label them so you know what’s in there and that you can read the label from floor level, this way you don’t spend ages looking through them all.
- Sliding doors
Not necessarily the thing that comes to mind straight away but sliding doors give you a broad reach that means you can see clearly what you have and where it is. It also makes accessing it much easier too, as you slide open the door, see where the item is, reach in and get it – no more hinged doors swinging back and forth as you delve deep in the wardrobe for something.
There is nothing quite like a wardrobe that is designed specifically around what you want. Why not take the plunge, and design your own today?
