Top things to consider when designing your wardrobe

Designing a bespoke wardrobe is easy with our Wardrobe Configuration Tool, but how do you decide what elements you want your custom-made wardrobe to have?

Here are some of the top things to consider when designing your wardrobe, to make sure it gives you all the storage space you need along with ideal aesthetics for your room.


1. Doors


Sliding wardrobe doors make it easy to access the interior of your wardrobe, without taking up any additional space in your room when they are open. 

However, you might prefer to have an open-front wardrobe with no doors at all which will allow you to just reach in and grab garments whenever you want.

Both options are available in our Wardrobe Configuration Tool, so you're free to make the best decision for your space and your personal preferences.


2. Interior Partitions


Once you know the overall dimensions of your wardrobe, it's time to choose how many vertical partitions you want inside it.

It's sensible to have a number of interior elements equal to the number of doors your wardrobe has. Then, when the doors are opened, they align with the partitions.

Alternatively on large wardrobes, you could have twice as many partitions so that each door reveals two interior spaces.


3. Hanging Space


One of the other things to consider when designing your wardrobe is hanging space. Most people use their wardrobe to hang clothes, so give yourself enough room for the garments you wear most often.

Some clothes need more vertical space, for example dresses and overcoats, therefore you might want to have at least one interior element with full-height hanging space.

Other garments are shorter, such as shirts, and you could choose to have two hanging rails, one above the other, or add drawers to the bottom of the cabinet.


4. Drawers and Shelving


Wardrobes are not only for hanging clothes. Internal drawers and shelving create versatile space for storing folded items flat, as well as smaller garments like socks and underwear.

It's likely that you have clear ideas about what you do and don't like in this respect, and the beauty of a fully bespoke wardrobe is that you can choose open shelves, internal drawers, or a combination of both - whichever you prefer.

Some people choose to have no hanging space at all, instead preferring to fill their wardrobe space with shelving, and store all of their clothes folded flat.


5. Other Equipment

We offer a number of extra items you can add to your custom wardrobe design:

  • Height adjuster to slightly raise the base of the wardrobe.
  • Skirting gap to allow the wardrobe to stand flush against a wall with skirting boards.
  • Back wall options including attached or notched walls.
  • Drawer doubling and milled or standard drawer handles.

You'll find all of these in our Wardrobe Configuration tool - just follow the step-by-step guide to make designing a custom wardrobe as easy as possible.
