Choosing wardrobes for your bedroom isn’t always the easier option. The one tip you will benefit from is not to go overboard in terms of colour, remember somewhere down the line you are probably going to change the colour scheme in your bedroom, which means that sticking to neutral colours is beneficial, reducing the need to replace the wardrobe doors and spend unnecessary money when you decide to make a change.
The first step is to choose a design that you feel makes the best use of space. Remember you are going to want to focus on hanging space, shelving and shoe space. Work with a designer if necessary to identify how to make a wardrobe that can accommodate all your clothing and your partners clothes. In a children’s room, you will want to also focus on these three elements.
Ideally try and keep more hanging than shelving space, some items can be folded or hung, so if you run out of space, it is easier to find another hanging to place it on. You may also want to consider some baskets with the shelves for your under garments and socks.
Next look at the size that you need. The fitted wardrobe should not overpower the room, but at the same time you want it to fit into the space with ease. This means making use of the space. The best option is to choose a floor to ceiling option,providing additional packing space at the top for suitcases and other items, such as winter blankets, etc. Measure the space with care, keeping in mind door opening spaces and more. All doors should open easily and without any unwelcome restrictions.
Quality is imperative and when you are choosing a fitted wardrobe, you are choosing a piece that is going to be in the room for many years, this means you want it to be the finest quality that is going to be durable, strong and long lasting. It’s not always easy to ensure you are buying good quality, unless you get to see the wardrobe in person, which is recommended wherever possible. Identify what suppliers are available and make an arrangement to go to their store where you can see the products for yourself. This will also give you the chance to speak to their representatives, get some ideas and design tips that you can rely on and trust.
Remember to focus on the colours you choose. White is always a good choice or neutral tones which can be easily incorporated into any room design you choose. Remember the design you have right now may not be what you are looking for in a few years, what is trendy now will be out of style in a few years. You want to make your bedroom comfortable, but bear in mind that these are fitted items, so you can’t simple replace them. So think in advance, be realistic and think neutral wherever possible.
Make use of mirrors. While you may not want mirrored doors in your bedroom, these can be beneficial. If you are working with a smaller bedroom area, then mirrors can reflect natural light and also make the space feel bigger than it is. You should have a mirror on the inside of at least one of the fitted wardrobe doors. A full length mirror is imperative whether you are fitting wardrobes in your dressing room or bedroom.
The final tip to buying fitted wardrobes is the price. Do not focus only on the price, rather find what you like, confirm quality and then compare prices.
