If you're planning to remodel a bedroom that is more petite than palatial, then you're probably keen to maximise the space that you do have without making the room feel too cluttered and cramped. One of the best ways to achieve this objective is to ensure that you have clever storage. Having a place for everything means that you can keep the rest of the room clutter-free, which is important in any room but particularly so in a bedroom with small dimensions.
The main storage feature in a bedroom is the wardrobe. A custom-designed, built-in wardrobe is a great way to achieve maximum storage with minimum impact on the remaining available space in the room. Here are two features that are a must-have for your custom wardrobe.
1. Smart interior storage
One of the best things about having a wardrobe custom made is that you can tailor the internal storage to your exact specifications. If you have a shoe collection that would make most of your friends weep with envy, then you can add specially designed shelving to safely house your precious footwear.
You can also maximise space by deciding how much full-length hanging space you need. If you have more shirts and jackets than dresses, then half-length hanging spaces with extra drawers or shelves underneath will give you the functional storage you need.
2. Utilise the whole wall
Many built-in wardrobes are only constructed to around door-height for aesthetic reasons. In a small bedroom, this is a waste of precious storage space that would otherwise be an unused void. Make sure that your wardrobe extends right to the ceiling to create a wardrobe that can hold a much larger amount of your possessions.
If you're of shorter stature or the ceilings of your home are higher than average, you might find that reaching these loftier storage areas can be tricky. Ask your wardrobe designer to include a sturdy but unobtrusive ladder that can be used to access the items on the higher shelves.
If you're excited by the idea of a wardrobe that has been designed to meet all your storage needs and is tailor-made with your own belongings in mind, then discuss your ideas further with a specialist wardrobe designer and manufacturer. They'll be able to help you to plan your new wardrobe and may help you to come up with more innovative ideas to make it the perfect addition to your bedroom.
