Fitted Wardrobes: Be Prepared before Installation

Deciding on the ideal wardrobe for your bedroom may be difficult when there are so many options to narrow down. Though you may simply consider buying a freestanding wardrobe. Opting for something bespoke and fitted is ideal for a streamlined look. Also helping to optimise awkward spaces in the room.

When it comes to looking for your ideal wardrobe, it’s important to be prepared and to have an idea of not only what style you want, but what you would find to be highly practical in your bedroom. Here are some tips to get the most out of your bespoke fitted wardrobe.

Declutter First

It’s always a good idea to look through your current wardrobe and think about the items that are wasting storage space. Think to yourself “will these be worth storing once the new wardrobe is fitted?” If not, then it’s time to let go. Have a clear out and go from there.

What are you going to store?

Obviously you’ll be hanging your clothes up, that’s a given, but how many drawers do you think you will need? Will you need one full length or two half length rails? What about shelving options? Consider your current storage situation and consider what is needed to optimise the space for what needs putting away.

Don’t Forget to Measure

Before approaching an expert with your fitted wardrobe, it’s always handy to get some measurements together of the space. That way you are able to get a more clear idea of what could be done for your storage solution.

Think about the Doors

Fitted wardrobes are great for filling awkward spaces, but the doors you choose could have an impact on how invasive they are on your space. If you’re working with a smaller environment then it may be best to consider sliding doors, but the experts at Kingston are also there to help you decide if you’re still unsure.

Ensure the Room is Ready

Before your wardrobe is fitted, it’s important to make sure that anything that’s needed to be done to the room first is completed. For example, if you’re decorating and are opting for a backless wardrobe, then you need to make sure that all walls are painted first.

The idea of a bespoke, fitted wardrobe is that it holds a more permanent place in your home than a freestanding wardrobe would.  So it is important to ensure you are as prepared as possible. in order to get a better idea of what you want.
