Walk-In, Built-In Or Store-Bought: Which Wardrobe Is Best Suited For Your Bedroom?

There’s no magic to tidying up – but there’s a method to the madness. Here, we recommend tried-and-tested storage aides and accompaniments that’d help stow away your personal possessions and cut the clutter in this place for rest.

The right fit
There’s no better way to manipulate floor space than with fitted carpentry. The built-in wardrobe is a popular storage solution with homeowners as its customisable nature allows it to fully utilise and take on any layout – no matter if it’s awkward or tricky and tight. Even the oddest of nooks can be transformed into a useable area.

Get in line
As per its namesake, the built-in closet is assembled right into the wall and can be tailored to fit the full height of the room so that every square inch is used. This also helps create a streamlined appearance – making this part of the home feel roomier than reality. Since it’s crafted from scratch, homeowners get to partake in the design process and personalise a unit that suits your taste and caters to your needs and habits.

Roomy upgrade
As interior space is of a premium, a walk-in wardrobe is a luxury. But if you’ve got room to spare, go ahead and bring a dose of opulence into your boudoir. A common walk-in closet layout quite resembles a galley kitchen with two rows of cabinets along opposite walls and a narrow runway in the middle for catwalks.

Create a dressing room
With a walk-in wardrobe, there is more than sufficient lodging for clothing, bags, footwear and accessories – depending on the size of your collection or floor area. As it usually adjoins and is not within the master suite, privacy is maintained when dressing up for the day.

The modular wardrobe
Off-the-shelf solutions used to pale in comparison to their smarter and more capacious built-in counterparts. But retailers today, fortunately, understand that one size does not fit all. Ready-made closets now come in a plethora of sizes and styles to fit the demands of the discerning audience. The freestanding unit also appeals to occupants who do not want to invest in permanent storage. Owners can either replace their timeworn unit when wear and tear happens or simply rearrange its position to refresh the look of their interior. No hacking required – just lift and go.

Keep it out of sight
Apart from fitted wardrobes, the platform is another form of bespoke carpentry that makes the best of your room’s square footage. Constructed across a major portion of the floor, it essentially is a bed frame with accommodation integrated within the structure. The potential for storage is tremendous, from deep chambers that can be accessed via the platform surface to drawers along the steps that lead up to the sleeping area. Or you could even have one custom-made with a storage headboard. What’s great is these elements are tucked away out of sight – thus, keeping the interior free of clutter and encouraging a Zen-like atmosphere for a deeper slumber.
