Guide to Owning a Built-in Wardrobe

Furnishings

There are essentially 2 types of furniture; Stand-alone or Built-in. If you are in the midst of moving into a new home, or just thinking of refurbishing your place, chances are you’re also having a headache about the kind of furniture you should invest in.

 

Having a good closet is important because it keeps the bulk of our belongings. It can transform a disorganised room into an immaculate one with the right touches.

 

Here’s all you need to know about built-in wardrobes; the pros and cons, and ideas you can incorporate into your design plan if you decide to get one.

 

 

 

Advantages

Maximizes space

If there are weird angles in your house such as sloping ceilings or uneven walls, having a built-in wardrobe could turn this ‘problem’ into an asset.

 

Since it is made to fit a specific area, you would be able to make full use of what is available, and even end up with more space for other furniture!

 

 

Easier to Clean

It is unlikely that you would be able to find a stand-alone wardrobe that would fit the corners and walls of your room perfectly. You’re bound to find unwanted gaps on the top or the side.

 

Gaps are not only unsightly, they are usually hard to reach. This means either awkward cleaning or dusty furniture for you. Yikes, both are enough reasons to drive us to the nearest contractor!

Limitless Designs

Because they are made-to-order, you would be able to choose from a wide variety of materials/shapes/colours etc. This customisation allows you to build the wardrobe of your dreams.

 

It also makes organising your clothes more painless since you would be able to have personalised shelving units to suit your needs.

 

 

 

Disadvantages

Not flexible

If you’re fickle-minded and like to remodel your room once in a while, built-in wardrobes may not be right for you. They require time and effort to build, so once you’ve finalised a design, you’d have to stick with it until you’ve milked your money’s worth!

 

Plus, it is not just the moving of your wardrobe. If you want to change certain pieces of your existing furniture, your built-in might not be in theme with your new ideas.

 

 

Takes a longer time to be ready

The planning, measuring, customising, and building of your wardrobe might take a longer time than you’d imagined, so be prepared to wait if you want to get a built-in.

 

 

Expensive

Of course, it also comes with a higher price tag than a stand-alone wardrobe, and since it would be a fixture in your room, it would be wiser to get one that is made of high quality materials.

 

According to www.3benefitsof.com, you should avoid cheap veneer wood as it is not long-lasting, which might cause your wardrobe to get damaged easily. 

 

 

 

Ideas for Built-in Wardrobes:

So where do you start? Here are some features you can consider if you’ve decided to get a built-in closet.

Curtains instead of doors for a less boxed up look. A good thing about this is that you can play around with curtain designs and change them whenever you feel like it!

Or have no doors. Who says you need doors to have a complete wardrobe? This way, you have easy access to your clothes, plus a good excuse to showcase them!

A curved closet makes full use of the corners of your room.

Mirrored doors are practical and give the illusion of a larger room.

This is what we meant by sloping ceiling. It jazzes up the interior of any space and can even act as a centrepiece!

 

Scrambling for a contractor already? Here are some recommendations from RenoTalkers.
