Customise your ideal wardrobe with Geelong’s #wardrobeblokes. As seen in GT Magazine.
Is your wardrobe overflowing with clothes? Can’t find that certain belt you need?
There’s nothing like a well organised wardrobe. And now that we all have a bit of time on our hands to ‘Marie Kondo’ our wardrobes, you may actually decide it’s time for a new one.
These days, the wardrobe is a focal point in the home so it needs to look good, feel good and be functional.
A well thought out layout is paramount to ensure you’re making the most of the space available.
A custom-made wardrobe will ensure each bit of railing, shelving and drawers fits exactly to maximise storage space.
The internals of a wardrobe are integral and should always comprise of a mix of long-hanging and short-hanging rails, drawers, shelves, and space for shoes too.
Each person’s needs are different so consider what your current wardrobe looks like and design accordingly.
If you are mad for winter coats or evening gowns then long-hanging is for you. On the other hand if you are all about the blazer, ample short-hanging makes sense.
It’s true, women seem to need more hanging space than men.
Drawers are handy for smaller items such as socks and underwear. Make sure they are wide enough to fit folded items of clothing too.
Handy drawer inserts can divide ties, rolled belts, scarves to really keep things organised.
Open adjustable shelving is practical and can be great for storing and displaying your handbag collection.
And if you’re wondering what the most popular colour for wardrobes is – it’s still classic white.
Here are some design elements you could include in your wardrobe:
- Velvet-lined, glass topped jewellery display drawers
- Garment levers for the vertically challenged
- Pull-out ironing board
- Luxe vanity.
- Practical tall boys
- Superior drawer systems
- Wire baskets allow the air to circulate
- Tie and scarf racks
- Strip lighting to add interest
- A full length mirror
