            How To Plan A Built-In Wardrobe

            Whether it is somewhere to house an impressive shoe collection or simply keep clothes altogether, knowing how to plan a built-in wardrobe helps with creating made-to-measure storage that maximises every inch of a room. Getting the right planning underway allows an alcove, adjacent room, or recess to be transformed into a discreet place to stow clothes, toys and belongings. Making the most of areas around the home is crucial for a functional household, and bedrooms are just the same. Various colours and styles allow a built-in wardrobe to be customised to personal taste, while accessories can be matched to the contents will stored, making daily routines easier. 

            • Calculate the square footage

              Carefully assess how much space there is to play with as the stepping stone towards a new closet that will suit all your needs.
            • Consider capacity

              Carry out an honest stocktake of what you plan to store to get a rounded picture of how much storage is required.

            • Walk-in wardrobe

              Choose an internal doorway to convert a connecting room into a walk-in wardrobe. Select a matching style to other fixtures for a cohesive look.
            • Slide and hide

              Opt for sliding doorways to convert a recess into valuable bedroom storage. This option is also a great way to maximise a small space, with no door swinging and taking up floor space.

            • Mirrored

              Dedicate a spot for grooming or testing different outfits before the day ahead by picking a style fronted entirely by mirrors.
            • Panelled

              Choose a discreet look with a panelled design that blends into the background, making it great for shaping a restorative space. 

            • White

              Open up a room with a white wardrobe, which brings longevity to a scheme and creates a bright environment.
            • Cream

              Set a snug atmosphere using a cream-coloured option that has a traditional look and timeless appeal. 
            • Grey

              Pick an integrated closet in on-trend grey and experience its tranquil properties that aid positive well-being.
            • Oak

              Add a hint of character with a wooden design, that adds rich texture without darkening or dominating a space.

            • Internal storage

              Craft a custom layout with bespoke furniture features inside a wardrobe to maximise the available space - great for clothes and personal belongings.
            • Lighting

              Illuminate a closet interior by having purpose-fit lighting installed, making it simpler to select clothes and shoes whatever the season.
