The Principles of Smart Built-In or Walk-in Wardrobes Design
Designing the ideal walk-in or built-in wardrobe requires a certain expertise; you need to ensure there is plenty of storage space without taking up too much valuable floor space. Our team of designers are here to work with you to ensure the result makes maximum use of the total space available, regardless of size or the items you wish to store.
The principle factor we focus on is how to design the most functional and ergonomically correct walk-in or built-in wardrobe within the space available. If parameters are not properly adhered to, the wardrobe will simply not work to maximum efficiency.
For example, hanging and shelving must be designed with the average adult in mind; otherwise suits and shirts will touch creating crumpled clothing, difficult access and an overall disorganised appearance.
Similarly, shelving should be designed to accommodate one jumper, T shirt or folded pair of jeans deep and either one, two or three items wide.
When short on space, we recommend prioritising hanging and shelving space over drawers, as it is often possible to fit a chest of drawers within the bedroom.
Another aspect we also consider is how the built-in or walk-in wardrobe will be able to adjust to the user’s needs. Spaceworks has designed a flexible wall-mounted system which allows rods and shelves to be interchanged even after the wardrobe is built. Following the completion of the project, we also offer additional shelving and rods at no extra charge for ten years. We have found flexibility to be an important factor, especially for growing families.
The appearance of your walk-in or built-in wardrobe is, naturally, a very important aspect of the design. There are no set rules for external design, but we work hard to ensure your new cabinetry perfectly complements your architectural style and existing décor. At Spaceworks, our wardrobes are designed to be as attractive as they are functional. Period homes from the Edwardian and Victorian era feature high ceilings, intricate ceiling roses and architraves and we design your wardrobe to ensure these defining features are not compromised.
We hope you find these tips helpful in creating your perfect wardrobe design.
