Wardrobes for small rooms, how to fit more in less space
Wardrobes for small rooms

Walk-in wardrobes, sliding wardrobe doors and custom fitted wardrobes, they all conjure up mental images of large bedrooms that expand into gigantic, spacious areas filled with furniture and accessories. We think of bespoke fitted wardrobes as being extravagant pieces of furniture that contain endless rails of clothes and shelves of shoes, but what about wardrobes for small rooms? How can fitted wardrobes be customised to smaller spaces and really allow you to make the most of your room?

Small room dwellers, don’t be afraid! In this article, we’ll give you a quick rundown of a few things to consider when looking to buy a fitted wardrobe for a smaller space.

Sliding wardrobe doors are a subtle, stylish way to create more space in a smaller room

By their very nature, sliding wardrobe doors are space-efficient and minimalistic. By sliding along the surface of the wardrobe, sliding doors don’t take up any extra space when opened, whereas wardrobe doors that open outwards can leave smaller rooms feeling cramped and claustrophobic. When looking at wardrobes for small rooms, sliding doors instantly give you more space!

A well-fitted wardrobe makes a small room look well-proportioned

Wardrobes for small rooms

With a custom fitted wardrobe built to your room’s exact measurements, you’re never going to have an issue with it fitting initially. In smaller spaces, standard non-fitted wardrobes will often be the right width, but slightly too deep, or the opposite. Even though the difference in extra width or depth is usually small, which may not be enough to deter people from their purchases, it can actually add to the cramped feeling of a smaller bedroom.

With a made-to-measure fitted wardrobe, you don’t get that problem, you’re able to design your own wardrobe from the ground up. This essentially means that the final product will fit exactly into the space it’s meant to. In turn, this means that it will look cleaner and fit into the room’s overall layout, lending itself to a spacious look as well as making more room where possible.

Stack up on storage when designing wardrobes for small rooms

It’s just like the age-old adage goes: ‘it’s what’s on the inside that counts’. The same applies for wardrobes for small bedrooms. By investing in a compartmentalised interior system, you can fit more inside your wardrobe, which essentially means an emptier room, which in turn means more room.

Whether you choose from our Standard, Premier or Signature range, there’s a wardrobe interior for everyone.  From minimalist hanger rails, through to complex storage systems with drawers, shelves and hangers - we can help you to create more space with your wardrobe for small bedrooms.
