A built-in wardrobe in your bedroom can serve several purposes, such as housing your belongings, hiding away clutter or even beloved feature that showcases your prized possessions from handbags, shoes and jewellery.
So, how do you pick the right design and style?
Well, there’s plenty to consider if you’re upgrading or building from scratch.
At The Sliding Robe Door Company, we find that clients, and even builders, can get carried away with the finished look of the doors but miss the mark when it comes to making the wardrobe functional.
If you’re trying to determine what type of built-in wardrobe you’d like (and find useful), we suggest you keep the following things in mind…
Built-in Bedroom Wardrobe: Key Considerations
1. Configuration and Usage
We recommend starting with the configuration of your wardrobe, to ensure you:
- Have dedicated spaces for your frequently used or much-loved items. If belongings have a designated spot it will help to keep the area clean and organised.
EXPERT TIP: Before you think about configuration, you’ll need to determine which belongings you’ll want to keep stored in your bedroom wardrobe e.g. long dresses or coats, larger items like suitcases, ties, handbags, jewellery, hats etc.
- Can easily access your clothing and accessories on high rotation.
- Make the most of the space available (e.g add shelving in as high as possible and store items you don’t use often in those harder-to-reach areas)

How much space do you want or have available for your wardrobe?
As built-in wardrobes cannot be moved, it’s important to be 100% happy with the layout of your room and floor plan.
