When designing a new wardrobe in the bedroom, there are some general thumb rules to abide by. Check out these helpful tips for designing the most functional wardrobe space.
Calculate the numbers
Make a list of your belongings in the wardrobe. These numbers will help decide how much space you’ll need for hanging, shelving, and accessories. Once you’ve calculated your clothes and belongings, you’ll be able to design and organise more effectively.
Prioritise space for dresses or longer hanging clothes
First, design the hanging section and then place drawers and shelves. Long hang for the average woman should take up anywhere between 18-24″ of hanging space on average.
Create a noticeable divide for a shared closet
This will avoid unnecessary clutter, and you will not have to set the whole wardrobe all over again because you messed it up by stuffing your items out of laziness. Learn ways to share a wardrobe with a significant other. Women’s clothing tends to take up more space than men’s and require more long hang. Work this into your wardrobe designing, if you are sharing a room.
Design with extra shoe storage in mind
For shoe storage, plan and design ample space, especially if you love footwear shopping and can’t easily let go of your old pairs of shoes or heels. More shoes can fit on a flat shelf, and they are best-stored heel to toe for maximum space functionality.
