Read This Before Getting A Built-In Wardrobe

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.

Advantages Of Using Built-In Wardrobes

While there are many benefits of built-in wardrobes, both big and small, some of the most obvious and beneficial advantages are listed below:

  1. It helps to customize your interiors

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.

  1. It offers a custom façade

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.


Disadvantages Of Using Built-In Wardrobes

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:

  1. It is unmovable

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.

  1. It is a permanent investment

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.

What Does A Built-In Wardrobe Look Like On The Inside?

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.

  • Hanging space: It is much easier to maintain your wardrobe and keep your clothes neat. This also means you can just do a quick clean up when needed or follow the advice of Marie Kondo to declutter your wardrobe.
  • Drawers: These protectors are ideal for delicate items such as socks and accessories. They’re especially helpful if you want to keep important documents or jewellery protected.
  • Shelves: A great use for those spacious shoe blocks are air-tight boxes. They’re ideal for garments that tend to fold well, such as jeans, knitwear or t-shirts. As they're extremely durable, they're also perfect to store seasonal footwear in - this ensures that everything is neatly organised and not cumbersome.

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.


Measurements To Take Care Of Before Getting A Built-In Wardrobe

Before you decide on a built-in wardrobe, there are some measurements you need to take of the space it will be fitted into.

  • External dimensions: These are the measurements of the space. Make sure there's enough space in your home for your wardrobe so it doesn't look too crowded and you can easily access everything inside it. For others, think about the depth you want your wardrobe and the height of the walls. This will be your approximate mounting distance.
  • Internal dimensions: With these life-size plans, you will be able to visualise what your wardrobe will look like once its been put together. These calculations are dependent on a number of factors such as how many panels you want to install and what material you’ve chosen.
  • Compartment measurements: A great way to make use of your limited wardrobe space is by building a custom-made closet. This step comes after you’ve chalked out how the interior of your wardrobe will look. You will have to define how deep the shelves and drawers are, the individual measurements of each cubby hole and the dimensions of the hanger space(s). If you have any special installations you need to take care of, such as open baskets or safes, make sure to factor these in too.

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.

In Conclusion,

Whether it’s storage compartments, sizing or the material or finish you choose – you’re in control of the design. So, go ahead and get set on getting your wardrobe built.
