BUILT IN WARDROBES
Wardrobes got popular when people started getting more household items. As we began to change, fashion came into play; this raised the need for variety in the way we appear. With time, we progressed into a fast-paced lifestyle and we developed the need to be organized and to have space to navigate our belongings.
Built-in wardrobes can be created for various kinds of spaces, whether large or small. To have fitted wardrobes into a room without crowding it, you need to dedicate some time to prepare. Consider things like color, style, height, and width which can affect if the wardrobe is imposing or making the room feel great.
If you’re having a hard time deciding if you need a freestanding or a built-in wardrobe, consider these options:
- It feels like space is not enough to contain a built-in wardrobe
- What to do when you don’t have sufficient storage space
You can easily move a freestanding wardrobe around, but when you have a built-in one, you’ll get more storage space. Custom made built-in wardrobes allow you to add mirrors and various finish surfaces to bounce the light and make the room appear larger.
How can Built-In Wardrobes help to Increase Space?
Built-in wardrobes can help you solve your visual and storage space needs for your home. They are designed with unique properties that can save space in various rooms in our house, including your bedroom.
- With the color
Both light and dark colors can change the visual appearance of the room and make it feel larger. Dark fitted wardrobes created by professionals will add depth to any room. Bright colors can bounce the light coming in through the windows. By doing so the room will appear as if there’s an extra light source and just as it is with dark wardrobes, it can create depth.
- With the available space
When you adjust the width, height, and length of the wardrobe, it can make a huge difference in the space. Instead of making your wardrobe long, ensure that it is higher.
You’ll not lose much on storage if you reduce the width and in the end, your wardrobe will not overpower the whole room. The biggest benefit of having a custom built-in wardrobe is the flexibility in design.

The color you decide to use for the wardrobe can make a huge difference in how you perceive your clothes. When you use darker colors for your wardrobes, your clothes can stand out. For instance, if you have a lot of bright-colored clothes, it’ll be easier to see different shades and tones, particularly whites that stand against the dark finish of the wardrobe.
White wardrobes are fresh and airy, and they are easy to navigate, just like the black ones. White can serve as a neutral background for clothes. This background doesn’t grab attention and can also help your clothes stand out against it.
For those that have eccentric personalities, the color finishes of their wardrobes can be a mood-setting technique. If you see your walk-in wardrobe as an experience, you should look into colors.
Darks and lights can make the room appear visually larger. This is because some wardrobes need darker colors to increase visual space. On the other hand, brighter colors will bounce light off the surface, thereby expanding the room visually.
