Discover Ideal Wardrobes for Small Bedrooms
When it comes to storing all your clothes in a small bedroom, wardrobes may seem like a bad option. However, you can still achieve fantastic storage options with sliding wardrobes for small bedrooms. At Sliding Robes Direct, we’re passionate about providing fitted wardrobes that maximise limited space, and we’ve created this blog to share some ideas on how to create more space in smaller rooms.
Read on to find out more about our range of options and how fitted wardrobes can transform small bedrooms.
The Challenge of a Small Bedroom
In a small bedroom, it can be hard to envisage a fitted wardrobe. Limited square footage, no space for bedroom furniture, and the need for multifunctionality are all issues to consider. Beyond the physical confinements, small spaces can also suffer from a lack of natural light, and the sight of clutter can add to the feelings of claustrophobia.
With a fitted wardrobe, you can solve these issues easily. Bedroom furniture, including clothes rails, drawers, and shelves, is incorporated into the wardrobes themselves, and this puts clutter out of sight while giving you enough space for your belongings. Sliding doors can also be mirrored, and this helps to boost the amount of natural light in the room. A bespoke wardrobe offers these benefits and more, including only taking up the floor space required, rather than trying to put a square peg in a round hole.
Customising Your Clothes Storage
One of the best things about bespoke wardrobes is that they’re fully customised to your space. So, whether your bedroom has alcoves or an entire wall, there are options available. Unlike standalone hanging rails, drawers, or shelves, these bespoke wardrobes provide extra space in small rooms by using every available inch.
From storage for shoes and accessories to floor-height closets perfect for dresses, there are countless options with bespoke wardrobes. They’re also available in a range of stylish finishes, and this means that installations can be matched to existing colour schemes in small rooms.
This bespoke storage solution is also ideal for awkward rooms. When radiators, bulkheads, and other obstacles are present, a bespoke installation can help you to create more room and save space.
Maximise Your Storage Space
In a smaller bedroom, it’s important to maximise the space available. This means that once you’ve decided on a wardrobe style, you should carefully consider exactly how it will function. You can choose built-in elements like drawers for accessories and shoes, shelves for foldable items, and rails to hang dresses or suits.
By maximising this space, you’re ensuring that your brand new wardrobe is tidy and spacious. There are plenty of options to effectively store your clothes, all while leaving space to exist in. There’s plenty of inspiration out there, with styles to suit every type of small bedroom.
Fitted Wardrobe Top Tips
As experts in making less space work for customers, we’re knowledgeable about how to get the most out of your wardrobe. So, we’ve pulled together some top tips on what to do once your brand-new wardrobe has been installed.
Either seasonally or more regularly where required, carry out decluttering of your wardrobe. This ensures that clothes you don’t wear aren’t taking up valuable space. The best way to do this is to work in sections, removing clothes from the wardrobe and laying them out on the bed for review. Once you’ve reviewed what you store, only the clothes you want to wear will go back behind the doors.
Use Storage Baskets and Boxes
To make storing and finding things easier, we’d recommend using storage baskets and boxes. These storage options mean that even the most spacious wardrobes are easy to navigate. These boxes and baskets are perfect for jewellery and other small items.
Use Vertical Storage
To give yourself room within the wardrobe, make the most out of vertical storage. Using hooks or pegs on the inside of your wardrobe doors means you can hang things like belts, scarves, ties, or handbags. This vertical storage solution keeps these items visible and easily accessible.
To make choosing your favourite outfit easy, you can also sort items by colour. Whether this is trousers, dresses, tops, or shoes, it’s easy to style outfits when they’re pre-sorted. To go a step further, you can also categorise items in your fitted wardrobe by season or type e.g. all of your sports clothes together or all of your wedding outfits in one place.
