Designing a wardrobe can be difficult. This is particularly true if you don’t have prior planning for it. There is nothing to worry, though. We can help you with that. Below, we listed some tips about wardrobe design that you can try. Ready? Let’s start.
- Numbers Matter
The first thing you need to keep in mind is that numbers matter. A lot, actually. There are many factors that affect how you design your wardrobe. The numbers of the clothing you have are of course among these factors.
So, the first thing you need to do is to calculate the numbers of your clothing. By calculating the numbers, you will get insight on how large your shelving needs to be, how the hangers will be used, the kinds of wardrobe accessories to use and so on.
- Proper Way to Prioritize Space
Prioritizing is also important, too. The proper way to do is to prioritize for longer clothes and dresses, followed by organizing the rest. So, you need to design the storage where you can hang these clothing first. Design the shelves and drawers after that.
- Fold andStack
How can you maintain your clothing, prevent damages and save space? The answer is to fold and stack them. Folding and stacking clothing like t-shirts, sweaters, and knits maintain their garment’s shape and prevent damage. By folding and stacking, you will also free up space to use for more clothing.
- If the Wardrobe Is Shared, Create a Visible Divide
Another important part of wardrobe design is to create a visible divide if the wardrobe is shared. Why does this matter? Well, because a visible divide will prevent mixing clothes or crowding the space of other people. So if you share the wardrobe with someone else, be sure to create a divide that can be noticed easily.
- Extra Storage for Shoes
Who doesn’t like to have extra storage, especially to store shoes? On average, a man has about 10 pairs of shoes while a woman has about 40 pairs of shoes. As such, it is always a good idea to have extra storage ready for those extra shoes, particularly for women.
- Open Shelving
While we admit that open shelving is not for everyone, it certainly is a good idea. Why? Because it is very practical, especially for small spaces. It doesn’t eat up a lot of space while at the same time still give you useful storage. Not to mention open shelving is a lot more reachable, too.
- Use Every Inch Available
That’s right. Use each and every inch of the space available. This is particularly true if you have a rather small space. If the horizontal space is all occupied, look at the vertical space. Is it underutilized? If so, create vertical storage and put your items in it. Arrange the items depending on the frequency you use them. The more frequent the usage, the more reachable the item should be.
How your wardrobe design will be is, of course, up to you. That said, our tips above should help you create one that you really wanted. Good luck!
