With Christmas on the horizon, it’s time to re-organise your wardrobe and finally tackle what may be lurking in its depths where you’ve not dared to look in a while!
Imagine how satisfied you’ll feel once you’ve cleared your summer ‘floor-drobe’ and made way for storing Christmas presents and your January sale purchases. Whether you’re naturally a neat freak or are still trying to keep to your 2016 New Year’s resolution, we have some handy wardrobe interior design ideas to help you maximise your wardrobe space and keep clutter to a minimum.
From shelving to storage towers, it’s important to invest in flexible wardrobe interior options to help you make the most out of your bedroom storage space. A flexible internal wardrobe kit will allow you to design your own layout. Whether you need to house an extensive shoe collection or just like to have everything in its place, you can create a storage solution that’s perfect for you – removing any pressure of having to hunt around for the clothes you love. In addition, having your clothing and accessories beautifully housed in an ordered way will inspire you to stay organised.
A handy tip: try having your best-loved and most-used items at eye level, leaving the lesser used items to be stored higher up. By making maximum use of this vertical space, as well as horizontal, every available inch is utilised, enabling you to store as much as possible in your wardrobe.
As well as having a good combination of shelving, drawers and rails to house your clothes, you may wish to consider these tips to ensure you can store as much as possible in your wardrobe:
- Out with the old; make way for the new. Clear out your old clothes by selling them or giving them to charity.
- For out-of-season clothes, stow them under your bed or in another room or the attic, making way for current season essentials in your wardrobe. If you don’t have room to do this, consider using vacuum bags to compress your SS/AW wardrobe to a compact size that can be stored at the bottom of your wardrobe.
- Try and use co-ordinated hangers for a clean look that will help you to stay organised. For a fun, weekend DIYproject, you could even get creative by covering any old or mis-matched hangers with your own bespoke stylish design that complements your interior scheme.
- Consider using unusual items such as an umbrella stand or an attractively-styled bin to store all your odds and ends. By thinking outside the box, you should be able to find a solution that is the perfect size and fit for that nook or cranny in your wardrobe
- Invest in boxes so you can hide your shoes away in the bottom of your wardrobe. If you buy clear boxes, you will also be able to see what shoes you have, making them easier to find.
- Lighting is essential. Ensure you can see everything you have in your wardrobe, even the top shelves you can only reach on tiptoes. Here, stick-on LED lights or strips for a quick and easy fix to help illuminate the space.
Remember that your home is what you make it; rather than filling it with clutter, focus on what items you absolutely need – so that your home is a satisfying place to be, rather than a saturated one!
