Having adequate storage is an important consideration for most homeowners. This is particularly true in the bedroom, where space is often at a premium and you don't want the room to feel cluttered or crowded. For this reason, many people are choosing to have a custom built wardrobe installed.
A custom built wardrobe gives you the ability to tailor make the size and configuration of your bedroom storage to perfectly suit your needs. It also allows you to add in extra features that you won't find in mass produced wardrobes. Here are four useful additions that you might like to include when designing your ideal custom built wardrobe.
1. Sliding racks
Adding some sliding metal racks is an excellent choice for any custom made wardrobe. They can be added at any height and are great for easy access to ties, scarves and belts. They also work well for pants and trousers and can be added in beneath a regular hanging area for shirts and blouses to maximise the use of space.
2. Built-in laundry hamper
Creating a dedicated space to house a laundry hamper is another practical and space-saving addition to a custom-built bedroom wardrobe. It's a great way to keep your dirty laundry neat and organised. I will also help to keep your bedroom or bathroom less cluttered and free up the floor space that an independent laundry basket would normally take up.
3. Jewellery drawers
Slimline jewellery drawers are excellent for keeping jewellery and watches tidy and easy to view when deciding which items to wear. They also help to prevent your jewellery from becoming dusty or tarnished. You can add a flocked liner with specialised stands for different items which will help to prevent scratching and help items to retain their shape.
4. Shoe shelving
Shelves that are designed specifically for your shoes are another smart choice for a custom wardrobe. These can be simple open shelves that you can slide your shoe boxes onto. If you prefer to store your shoes without boxes, you can add a metal rack or a sliding mesh basket that will store several pairs of shoes close at hand.
When you've decided which features you'd like to include in your new wardrobe, talk to your custom wardrobe designer and manufacturer about your ideas. They'll help you to come up with a plan that fits perfectly into the allocated space and accommodates your personal storage needs.
