15 Things to keep in mind to create the best built-in wardrobes

When designing a built-in wardrobe, there are generally some rules or things that would help you. Let’s have a look at it.

  1. Provide Proper Ventilation

A well-ventilated wardrobe helps maintain the freshness of clothes, particularly those that aren’t washed after every wear. Allow sufficient hanging space and choose baskets that allow air to circulate. Walk-ins should be ventilated like any other room.

2. Focus On Look & Essentials

This is subject to personal taste and lifestyle, but put together a list of the most frequently used items and focus on finding the perfect version. You can call it your uniform or signature look. Everything else comes after. Customise your wardrobes with Bespoke Wardrobe Accessories selection at Inspired Elements.

3. Choose Interior Options To Suit Your Lifestyle

The inside of your wardrobe must be as beautiful as the outside. Make sure you choose a company that offers a good range of options for your specific storage needs. Ask about hanging rails, shoe and trouser racks, and specialist pull-out shelving to suit your needs. Be creative in designs rather than sticking to templates.

4. Add Mirrors To The Wardrobe

Mirrors could increase the aesthetic look of the wardrobe. It will reflect more natural light and make the room clean and beautiful.

Also, you could avoid another investment on a dressing table. You could also design a small space with a mirror and a shelf at the back of your cosmetics.

5. Wardrobe’s Height

Design a wardrobe to the ceiling height. This gives you more space for your travel bags and suitcases when not in use. You could use this space for storing things that you wouldn’t use often.

6. Doors Are Crucial!

There are many designs that you could opt for while designing the door. If you do not have enough space to open the doors of a wardrobe, you could opt for Built-in Sliding Door Wardrobes. You could choose for smaller or larger doors depending upon the area you have in your room. Think about the size and shape of your bedroom with your personal preference while choosing wardrobe doors. Small bedrooms also benefit from mirrored doors, as they create the illusion of a larger room and provide a full-length mirror without taking up valuable floor space.

7. Keep In Mind About Drawers & Shelves

Drawers are mostly overlooked. They have a vast storage capacity. You can store your undergarments, socks, belts, and handkerchiefs in these spaces. This prevents your shelves from looking cluttered. You don’t have to hunt for your missing pair of socks. Big, sleek drawers help you to store essential documents. You need to ascertain the number of shelves that you would need for folded clothes. Run the design in your mind, if possible, draw a plan on paper. This would help you create room for all things that you would be stored in the wardrobe.

8. Think Of Your Budget

There are plenty of wardrobes available in the market which are available in different shapes and sizes. Budget is one factor that you should keep in mind as these can come at different prices. The type of materials, shape and size is the deciding factor in cost, and while you are going to create a wardrobe, you must have a clear idea of all these things. You can choose luxurious or fancy cabinets if you wish to, and if you are strict with a budget, low-cost versions can also be made.

9. Be Prepared

Before starting to make a built-in wardrobe, you should be prepared. Think about the type of built-in wardrobe you need to have, whether it’s sliding or hinged. Think about its design, colour and shades. This could help to minimise the errors, if any.

10. Add Some Extra Storage Options

A built-in wardrobe could help you not only in storing your clothes. You can use it in storing your shoes, ornaments, sports gadgets and much more. You can even build a secret cabinet inside the built-in wardrobes to keep money or similar valuable items.

11. Think Of Light

Earlier light was customarily used to walk-in wardrobes, but today light is seen in most wardrobes. The positive thing with light is that it will give you a clear picture of the wardrobe and give a pleasant feeling in the room. While creating a wardrobe, if you wish to have a LED rail on the top, that would be enough for lighting. If you are looking for more luxurious ones, you can have more lighting features as per your need.

12. Accessibility 

Think about harder to reach areas than others, how doors operate and where to place shelving, racks or drawers so that maximum accessibility is achieved and space suits your needs.

13. Wardrobes’ Colour Scheme

Usually, the first thing that we will look at would be the colour of the wardrobe. When you think of a built-in wardrobe, always think of interiors and choose the wardrobe’s colour. Even if you like fancy colours, you have to consider the room’s decor, or else it would be a wrong decision.

14. Be Patient

Never be in a hurry while selecting a built-in wardrobe. If you find something but do not absolutely love it or it doesn’t meet your standards, go on and do not settle for less. Resist your urge and be patient, as having a perfect wardrobe is our goal.

15. Do Your Research

Always take some time to do some research on wardrobes and whom to contact for creating the perfect wardrobe. Since there are a lot of companies out there, always make sure that you choose the best.
