You spend so much time planning the rest of your house, why not plan your wardrobe storage? Its important to look at what you have and what suits your needs. Here are 7 things to consider when designing your wardrobe for your new home.
1. What Will Work For Your Room Layout?
The layout of your room and the space you have for the wardrobe is vital to take into account – if it’s a smaller space, then a sliding wardrobe is the perfect combination of space-saving and style. For a larger space, consider hinged or even a walk-in or walk-through robe design.
2. Choose Your Wardrobe Look Carefully
Really think about what look and style you want to create for your wardrobe – and your bedroom as a whole. For example, if you have the space, a stunning walk-in robe is a show-stopping feature that adds a daily style experience, designed to showcase all your prized items. If your space is smaller, by playing with colours, door profiles and handles, you can still create an equally beautiful sliding and/or hinged wardrobe.
3. Ask Yourself How You’ll Be Using The Wardrobe Space
And what items will need to be stored in it. For example, will you need a lot of hanging space for longer items such as coats and dresses? Or more space for folded items in drawers – or a combination of both? Do you need racks for shoes, or other storage solutions for items such as jewellery, watches, ties etc? There’s a lot to consider.
4. Make Your Wardrobe Sliding Doors Interesting
Who says your wardrobe doors have to be dull and boring? Opting for a different colour, pattern or mirror finish on your wardrobe doors can add a feature as well as practicality.
5. Think About The Profile Of A Hinged Wardrobe
Although visually appealing, hinged wardrobe doors are ideally suited for larger bedrooms. If you have the room, your can create a beautiful look with different door profiles and handles. However, if you have a smaller bedroom opting for sliding doors is much more practical.
6. Don’t Forget About Wardrobe Lighting
A well thought-out lighting scheme will transform your wardrobe.LED strip lighting creates ambiance in your robes highlighting the contents of each space in a stylish and effective way. You can now add a sensor so that is only comes ob when you open the door. LED down lights are also a great option for ample lighting and if you’re incorporating a makeup station.
7. Think About Your Interior Finishes, As Well As Your Exterior Look
Open shelving is the most cost effective and popular option when it comes to the internal storage compartments. However if you are looking for some higher end finishes or more organisation, there are a number of extras you can incorporate into your wardrobe design.
- Jewelry Drawers – store and showcase your prized items
- Shoe Racks – a stylish way to store your favourite footwear
- Frame Shelving – a chic styling option for storing perfumes, bags and other accessories
- Pull Out Trouser Racks – easy to access and store neatly
