Wardrobes are one of the most important parts of any home. A good and spacious wardrobe that matches the interiors of your home is a must when it comes to keeping your place organized and tidy. Thus, choosing a wardrobe requires you to think of a number of facets, before you can make a final decision. When you are buying a freestanding wardrobe, the problem that arises is that the wardrobe might not be a great fit for your home, thereby causing space constraints and giving your house a cluttered look. These pre-built wardrobes also run out of storage space very soon. The reason for this is that these wardrobes are all mass-manufactured in a standard size, so they may not be a very great choice when it comes it customizing.
This is where built-in wardrobes come to the rescue.
So, what is a built-in wardrobe? A built-in wardrobe is nothing but a fitted wardrobe that is pre-installed into a side wall of your home. A built-in bedroom wardrobe is an eye-catching style statement, perfect for homes that lack space. A fitted or built-in wardrobe makes sure to make maximum use of the vertical space available in your home, making them the perfect choice for smaller rooms that have less floor space. These wardrobes also make sure to add a revamped guile to barren corners of your room.
While there are many benefits of built-in wardrobes, both big and small, some of the most obvious and beneficial advantages are listed below:
You can customise the interior of a built-in wardrobe to suit your storage requirements. For example, you could add extra loft space like some type of shelving or install two hanger rods instead of the standard-issue single. Freestanding closets have a disadvantage; they cannot be used for more elaborate layouts, such as those with more than one rod, or that need to fit a large number of clothes. A big problem with the modular approach is that you need lots of storage space and a lot of organisational skills. By opting for pre-designed wardrobes, you can create an efficient and ergonomic storage space to avoid buying an excess of organisers and extra chests.
With readymade closets, the design is usually limited and there's nothing you can do about that. You have to choose from a pre-existing set of colours and just hope it suits your interior design plan. You can choose the exterior colour, material and finish of a wardrobe to fit your design needs or current colour palette with these built-in designs.
Much like how there are 2 sides to a coin, there are also disadvantages along with advantages to having a built-in wardrobe. These include:
If you want to keep your wardrobe designs in a fixed place, it’s important to consider the layout of the rest of your room before installing them. Some people like to incorporate the same areas in their home decor so that they can gradually make it feel more familiar. Others change things up often so their house doesn't feel stagnant.
Fixed wardrobes are more or less permanent - since they're not movable, you can't easily get rid of them like a dresser. If you've made the decision to go with a fixed wardrobe, it's likely to last for many years and can't be changed as easily. If you're looking for a change, it's worth checking out the exterior without having to change the inside unless you need to.
Built-in wardrobes come with a variety of storage solutions that are all set up to maximize space. In most cases, it makes more sense to go for hanging space over shelving if you want a bit more organization too.
Where you position the interior components of the wardrobe also matters on whether your wardrobe has sliding or hinged doors. For sliding doors, shelves and drawers go to the side for easy access while for hinged doors, they go in the middle.
Before you decide on a built-in wardrobe, there are some measurements you need to take of the space it will be fitted into.
One of the first things to consider is the volume and size of your items. Minimum 0.5m in length should be enough for most drawers while hanging space can vary depending on whether you are a man or woman.
