Do you need some guidance on the design of your next Brisbane wardrobe?
The experts at The Sliding Robe Door Company have shared their dos and don’ts in this blog to make it easy for you to create a dream wardrobe that’s also highly functional.
The Dos of Wardrobe Design
- Do think about internal configuration and how you will use the space
Think about how to design the layout so you have ample storage for all of your favourite belongings.
Having a smart design and designated spaces for items of clothing and accessories will also make it easier to locate pieces and reduce time wasted when getting ready.
The design inside your wardrobe can include:
- Hanging rails to accommodate all items (for example single rails for longer spaces so you can hang long dresses, and double rails to create shorter hanging spaces for jackets and shirts)
- Pull out trouser racks
- Tie racks
- Jewellery drawers
- Shelving for shoes
- Designated storage areas for accessories, such as hats, handbags or scarves
EXPERT TIP: Incorporate specific sections or shelves for some of your most treasured items or show pieces so you can pop them on display. You could even use lighting to make them more of a focal point.
- Do think about which door materials suit your home’s style most
The material and colour of door you pick for your wardrobes is going to have more of an impact on the look and feel of a room than you may realise.
It’s important to choose something that is to your taste and doesn’t appear out-of-place within your property.
We have a huge range of materials for doors at The Sliding Robe Door Company, you can learn more about the pros and cons of each here.
- Do consider lighting
As natural light from the sun can damage your belongings, developing a lighting plan is a good idea.
Lighting can prevent you from digging through every space to find the piece of clothing or the accessory you’re looking for.
We find a personalised lighting plan also really makes the space feel opulent and luxurious, especially as you can use lights to accentuate a particular piece that you’ve placed on display (think gallery lighting!).
The Don’ts of Wardrobe Design
- Don’t waste space
Many people overlook both the top and bottom sections of their wardrobe. If these sections are maximised and consist of smart storage solutions, the cupboard will feel less cluttered.
If you have a high ceiling, think about items you can keep up the top that you don’t use often, such as large suitcases.
Do you have got excess space at the bottom of the wardrobe? If so, you could include:
- Pull out laundry baskets
- Shoe racks
- Have drawers which go all the way to the floor
Expert Tip: Use the bottom drawers to store any items which are used less frequently. OR perhaps make them the designated spot for seasonal clothing – like swimmers or beanies and scarves – and rotate items into that space when they’re not being used.
- Don’t rush the design without thinking about it properly
There are a lot of options for internal configuration and exterior materials, so it’s important to think carefully about how your wardrobe will be laid out, accessibility and how you intend to use it, so the design is practical and fits your needs.
Also, think about which materials will tie in best to the rest of your house’s décor or the style you’re hoping to achieve if you’re renovating.
- Don’t forget about internal configuration when ordering your sliding doors
When you’re deciding on double or triple track sliding wardrobe doors, don’t overlook the internal configuration of the cupboard.
Generally speaking, opting for a triple track will offer better accessibility of the cupboard’s contents.
By using the Slimline Triple Track system to provide the maximum access, you are less limited for future internal changes.
