Whether it is to maximise on the amount of space that you have in your bedroom or just to make sure that you have enough room for all your clothes, fitted wardrobes are the way to go. They offer you functionality and aesthetic appeal without taking up too much space which would otherwise be an inconvenience. However, before dipping your legs into the idea and having these installed, there are a couple of things you need to know about fitted wardrobes.
The idea is to maximise on space
Unlike their freestanding counterparts, the built-in wardrobes can fit into almost any kind of space. But, it is your duty to make sure that they actually fit in the space that is available. It is true that the rectangular door types of wardrobes are very common. But, there are other shapes and sizes available that can get into the more unusual spots. You just have to look around to get one that makes intelligent and efficient use of your space.
Get a wardrobe that fits your needs precisely
Built-in wardrobes are not a copy and paste. Even though most homeowners tend to believe that they are more or less the same. The truth is, you can add in as many features as you want and the details that would be appealing and useful to you. You can also omit the features that you don’t want.
You can even go as far as having additional drawers, shelves compartments and even shoe racks with enough space for just the number of pairs of shoes that you have. The variables that you can consider get even wider when you opt to have the walk-in type fitted wardrobes. That makes it even more spacious and can fit more ambitious plans like having a built-in Vanity table.
Remember to have the right type of lighting
In most cases, you will concentrate all of your creative energy in having all the features squeezed in to your bespoke wardrobe. You should also remember to have some custom-tailored lighting added. Not only does this make it easier for you to see inside the wardrobe, it also gives it a more dramatic feel.
Lighting, if played the right way can also help you achieve certain aspects that could not be achieved structurally. Say for instance if you wanted a more spacious wardrobe but don’t have the space. If you opt to have creative lighting, you can go for one that gives an illusion of more space.
Pay attention to the finishing as well
You also want the handles and other visible parts of the door to blend in with the rest of the room. More importantly, you want them to be easy on the eye and able to capture attention at the same time. This is why you need to pay attention on not just the features but also the finishing of the wardrobes as well.
Save yourself the cleaning hustle
If you’re not keen enough, you might still end up having that step-stool you used to clean on top of the freestanding wardrobe. To avoid this and make cleaning easier, it is best to have fitted wardrobes that run all the way to the ceiling. This makes it much easier for you to clean. It also gets rid of unwanted guests because you have less unused space.
Bespoke wardrobes are a great addition to any living space. They are neat, offer more space and can be custom-made to suit your needs. But, it is critical to make sure that you put in the right thoughts before you have one installed.
