Trying to fit a wardrobe into a smaller bedroom can be a very real problem. Wardrobes may provide you with the opportunity to amply store all of your clothes, shoes and other personal belongings, but they are also inherent space-stealers. If you’re looking for practical wardrobe solutions that will maximise the space in your small bedroom, we’ve got a couple of options that might just fit the bill.
When it comes to maximising floor space in your small bedroom, fitted wardrobes are unquestionably the best option. They can provide a focal point for the room and allow for innovative design, which maximises storage space.
If you intend on filling your bedroom with entertainment devices such as televisions and stereos, a customised wardrobe which allows these items to be integrated is a real space saver, negating the need for extra stands and tables which take up valuable floor space. In order to further create the illusion of space, mirrored wardrobes are excellent at reflecting light and making a smaller bedroom feel instantly more spacious.
Large wardrobe doors are a very real problem when space in your bedroom comes at a premium and this is where investing in sliding wardrobes could drastically increase the perceived size of your room. Many companies offer a wide range of sliding wardrobes. The doors of these wardrobes take up no excess floor space when opened and come in a range of stylish designs, including a mirrored front, which further adds to the illusion of increased space.
If you find yourself working from home on more than the odd occasion, fitting a desk into your small bedroom could be a more realistic dream than you might imagine. By purchasing a customised wardrobe, it’s possible to create a gap in between storage units, providing the perfect amount of space for a functional home office.
Consider purchasing a wardrobe that has integrated shelving, as well as room to hang your clothes. These shelves are perfect for storing shoes, accessories and all manner of items, in a space-efficient manner. By organising the interior of your wardrobe effectively, this also reduces the need for unnecessary tables, drawers and other external storage devices. If your wardrobe doesn’t come with integrated shelves, there are myriad options available that allow you the opportunity to create these storage compartments with minimal effort, from storage racks right through to hanging storage compartments. Buying the right wardrobe merely solves half of the problem when it comes to conserving space. If you’re working with small margins, every inch counts and this is where taking the time to organise the interior of your wardrobe effectively could save you a great deal of space.
