Custom built-in wardrobes are not only attractive to look at but can also add incredibly functional storage space to your bedroom, helping you stay organised so that it is easy to find everything that you need. Traditionally, wardrobes have been freestanding units that are similar to large armoires. However, there has recently been a trend to create built-in units that are more like custom cabinetry attached to the wall of the bedroom.
There are quite a few differences between a traditional closet and a wardrobe. Closets tend to be far more open with fewer organisational structures inside. For instance, a closet may have a couple of shelves and a bar where you can hang your clothing. A wardrobe, on the other hand, may have separate areas for shoes, jewellery and accessories, folded clothing, hanging clothing, and any other items that you may wear on your body.
Designing a custom built-in wardrobes starts by thinking about the types of items that you need to store. Make a list of all of the items that you want to fit into your wardrobe. Having a full inventory of all of your clothing, shoes, and accessories can help ensure that everything has a place in your new wardrobe.
Next, spend some time looking at pictures of wardrobes online to get ideas for how to organise your new space. Often, the wardrobe itself is built similar to a large, open cabinet system with tall doors. Inside, wire shelving, pull-out drawers, closet rods, and other elements are installed to break up the space to make it more functional.
Alternatively, shelving and drawers can be built directly into the unit. It is easier and less expensive to go with wire shelving and drawers. However, the choice is yours regarding what look you prefer. Again, this is an area where looking at photos can help. Based on the photos that you see you can decide which style of wardrobe you like the best and which seems the most functional for your needs.
Finally, you need to decide whether you are going to build your wardrobe yourself or hire someone to do it for you. This largely depends on your skill and experience using power tools. Typically, building a wardrobe is not overly complex. However, if you don’t have the right tools or don’t feel confident in your abilities, you can certainly hire someone to take on the project for you.
Custom built-in wardrobes can provide beautiful, functional storage for all of your belongings. Best of all, they can also help increase the resale value of your home. If you are looking for a way to stay organised, a well-designed wardrobe can provide a place for everything so that you always know exactly where to look for a particular item. This can make it faster to get ready for work in the morning since you don’t have to spend a lot of time hunting for the item that you need.
