Built in wardrobe ideas: Fitted designs and space saving trends

white built-in wardrobe ideasFitted wardrobes combine style and practicality to create effortless bedroom storage. However, due to the huge range of built in wardrobe ideas to choose from, it’s easy to get overwhelmed.

Fear not! We’ve simplified the process by breaking down the four considerations you need to make before you embark on your quest for the perfect storage solution.

Bespoke to not to bespoke?

For those on a budget, there are many built in wardrobe designs that aren’t bespoke and just require careful measurements and storage choices. They often let you pick the number of rails, shelves and drawers you need. However, if you’re looking for a made-to-measure solution, a bespoke design is the best way to maximise your space. This is particularly important when considering small built in wardrobe ideas.

Capacity vs. reality

How much room do you really need? If you’re not sure, it’s probably worth working out how many shoes, clothes and accessories you have. Try to imagine where they’re all going to go. Then work out how long your rail needs to be, how many clothes hangers or drawers are required, and even how deep your fitted wardrobe needs to be.

How high can you go?

When you consider the height and depth of your fitted wardrobe, think about the finished look. For example, floor to ceiling designs are popular, although not always practical. If you live in a period property or have decorative coving, picture rails or other architectural features, it’s more aesthetically pleasing not to cover them.

Design with the decor in mind

Aesthetics matter. That’s why your wardrobe design needs to match your decor choices. Installing mirrored hinged doors in a rustic bedroom will look out of place, whereas Japanese sliding doors in a minimalist room will allow the design to complement the decor.
