Adequate storage is the most important aspect in designing fitted bedroom furniture. Take in to consideration that you may need long hanging space for coats, dresses and suits. Pull out drawers are also handy for smaller items, while having space for shoes means that you wont be leaving them lying around the bedroom floor. Why not include some storage solutions such as pull down rails, trousers rails or tie rails. Shelving space is obviously a must and having some of these in the form of pull out shelves or baskets can be really handy. If space in tight it may be worth considering sliding robes so that doors aren’t opening into the bedroom. On top of this, it’s a real bonus to be able to slide open the doors, stand back and admire your wonderful collection.
So the questions to ask yourself are:
- How much hanging space do I need? Long hanging for dresses, suits, coats etc and short hanging for trousers, skirts, shirts, tops etc.
- What about shoe storage? How many pairs of shoes do I have? (if you are anything like my other half you will need to build an extension to house your shoes)
- What internal fittings would be handy? Shoe racks? Pull out shelves or baskets? Pull down hanging rails? Pull out trouser rails? Belt & tie rails?
- How much space do I have in my bedroom? Would sliding robes impair less on my floor space?
So when planning your wardrobes make sure you put your thoughts into planning the internal space. And of course your designer will help make sure that asthetically the design is spot on.
