How to Choose Your Custom Wardrobe

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Before you start planning your custom wardrobe, it makes sense to know what you want to fit in it. Well-designed clothes storage is what makes the difference between a practical, functional closet and an unpractical one. You have to ensure that there is enough place for all of your clothes and personal items in your wardrobe. Also, you have to pay attention to the type of wardrobe doors that you choose for these will impact the available space and the functionality of the furniture, as well as the overall cost.

What Are the Most Common Custom Wardrobe Mistakes?

Most people do not have experience when it comes to designing their own closet and this is normal. Average home owners do not know much about wardrobe design, storage space options, storage efficiency and so on. This is why they should work with a specialist that will make adequate suggestions and create a closet that is designed to fit their clothes and other personal items. Most people settle for already made closets because they assume that bespoke ones are too expensive. When you invest in a new wardrobe, you have to consider both aesthetics and functionality.

If it is frustrating for you to find the things that you need in your wardrobe, you should resort to professional help and create a smarter design that eliminate all of your current problems. When it comes to custom wardrobe  design mistakes you should avoid the following:
• Dead space above the top shelf- this is more common than you might think and you should choose a design that allows you to use this space.
• Your designer does not use an adjustable system- your clothing style might change over the years and you need to be able to adjust your closet accordingly.
• Shelves that are not deep enough- you need to make sure your shelves are deep enough so that you can stack anything you want without any difficulty; the last thing you want is for your things to hand over the edge in your new wardrobe.
• There is no lighting in your closet- if you cannot afford a custom lighting system for your closet, it is useful to know that there are other options that are meant to improve functionality and brighten up your wardrobe.
• Fighting through a field of clothes when you enter the closet- this happens more often than you think, especially in narrow closets; you can pay attention to design to eliminate this problem.
• Not bring beauty into your wardrobe system- closets have to be practical and to provide storage space, but this does not mean that they have to be ugly. Professionals in this field know how to create a space that you will enjoy using.

What Is the Most Common Type of Wardrobe Doors?

Cluttered wardrobes are frustrating and they make you waste precious time searching for what you need. The good news is that you can change all that with a new bespoke wardrobe that is designed according to your specific requirements. The best part about ordering a custom closet is that you get to have it build just the way you want it; this means that you will be the one to select the material, the color, the style, the accessories, the storage solutions and even the wardrobe doors. There are different types of doors that can be used to make closets and it is entirely up to you to decide what you prefer.

It is useful to know that  wardrobe doors  can be made of different materials such as wood, glass and mirrors. Wooden doors are quite popular because of their elegance and durability, they are available in different colors but they are more expensive than the alternatives, glass doors offer a modern look, they are practical and reasonably priced and they can be tinted or stained with different colors for a unique design. Mirror doors are very common these days for they create the illusion of a larger space and they are available at competitive prices.

The most popular types of custom wardrobe doors are hinged and sliding. Regardless of the type you opt for, you should make sure it enhances the usage of the closet and it blends in perfectly in the available space. It is useful to know that sliding doors are a popular option and they are available in different materials such as glass, wood and aluminum. These types of doors are sturdy and they enable you to save space; the only drawback is that you can access only half of your closet at a time, as the doors slide one over the other.

What Else Should You Know about Wardrobe Doors?

When it comes to closet doors, another popular option is bifold doors; these are connected by a hinge, they are quite practical, they are available at a reasonable cost and they do not require too much space when they open. The only drawback is that they do not allow for the entire use of the opening. Accordion closet doors still exist, they are usually made of PVC, they are light, affordable and they mimic other materials such as wood, laminates and fiberglass. There are also pocket closet doors, pivot closet doors, where the doors can open out fully and this means that you have access to the whole wardrobe; these are beautiful but expensive.

Moving on, there are also French closet doors, suitable for walk-in closets and mirrored doors that are versatile and affordable. When choosing a certain type of door, you have to ask yourselves how often you plan to open it and how much money you can afford to invest in them? As you can see, when it comes to creating your custom wardrobe your options are endless. Specialists in this field are eager to help you and to inform you about the most suitable solutions that are within your price range and meet your expectations.
