The Perfect Fit: How to Plan a Fitted Wardrobe to Suit Your Needs

Fitted wardrobes are your best option if you want to make the most out of your bedroom space – you can custom them to your needs, giving them an unusual shape, adding shelves, dressing table sections, integral lights… the possibilities are so many, it can easily get overwhelming. If you’re interested in a fitted wardrobe to suit your needs but don’t know where to start, worry not. We have put together a list of things you might want to consider to help you plan the wardrobe of your dreams.

Doors can and will make a difference, so make sure you pick the ones that are best suited to your needs, and personal preference. If you have a small bedroom and want to maximise space, then sliding doors are the right option for you. Mirrored doors specifically are ideal if you’re short of space, as they make smaller rooms appear larger. They also serve as a full-length mirror, which means you don’t have to use additional space for one.

Internal Storage
Consider exactly what and how much you will be storing, then decide on the height of the hanging rails and on the width and depth of shelves – rails set halfway up the wardrobe are ideal for shirts and trousers, but not for suits and long dresses. Take measurements so you know exactly how much hanging space you need, then consider whether you’re happy with shoes sitting in the space below a rail, or if you want them in a separate drawer, or on shelves, which will allow you to see them better. Also consider a custom-made space to store bags, belts and jewellery.

LED lights
LED lights, if carefully positioned, can help you get a clearer view of your clothes, so that you don’t have to fumble in the dark anymore. The integrated PIR sensor will automatically switch on when you open the wardrobe door, preventing any wastes of energy. You can integrate it on hanging rails or shelves, and the soft and subtle light will allow you to pick a perfect outfit.

Dressing table
A dressing table is a wonderful option is you like taking your time when getting ready, and will add a timeless charm to your bedroom. You can make the most of it by adding shelves, drawers or an overhead pelmet where you can store your jewellery and make up close to hand. Make sure your dressing table is well lit, and don’t forget a mirror!

Last but not least, think well about your choice of colour. Your wardrobe should blend with the existing décor and style of the house and it needs to be a colour that you won’t get tired of – you will be seeing it every day!
