Do we ever have enough wardrobe space? Storage is often hard to squeeze in, especially if you live in London, where flats seem to be getting smaller and smaller. The answer is to make the most of the space that you do have, and the best way to do that is to design storage that uses every inch of space to its best advantage.
Bespoke fitted wardrobes are better than a freestanding wardrobe, which will always have wasted space. When you design fitted wardrobes, you can customize them to your exact needs and requirements, thus ensuring that you have a place for all your clothing and accessories. Do you need more hanging space? Add a second rail. Do you have a lot of sweaters and t-shirts? Design plenty of shelving. Even a narrow space can be made useful with shelves. You can also build shelves of different depths.
Another useful idea is to install pull-out drawers. This allows convenient access to items at the back and avoids having to rummage through everything to find items at the back. Whether you choose wire or wicker baskets, you’ll be able to find what you need easily. Don’t forget to allocate space to store accessories neatly, so that you can see your scarves, belts and jewellery. And of course, shoe storage is a must – either shelves to store each pair individually, a shoe rack, or pull-out storage.
