7 Frustrating Signs You Need A New Walk In Wardrobe
We all know that a walk in wardrobe is a great way of storing and choosing clothes to wear but if you have the space but no organisation it can get a bit frustrating.
Here is a list taken from various client interviews that detail their frustrations with their old walk in wardrobe.
Wardrobe Problem #1: Under utilised space above and below your hanging rod.
Most walk in wardrobes have a top shelf and a hanging rod so there is a ton of wasted space above the shelf and below the clothes. This is a quick solution provided by home builders but very annoying for the home owner. The top shelf means storing items on top of each other and not using the space between the stored items and ceiling – wasted space. Everyone has shirts, jackets or blouses (medium hanging) and evening wear (full hanging) but normally you only have full hanging so again underutilising the space from the floor to the hanging items.
Wardrobe Solution #1: Eliminating the dead space surrounding your single hanging rod
The solution here is to have a variety of hanging option, medium, double and full length. Also eliminate the idea of a top shelf altogether. The ultimate solution is to have a wardrobe plan treating the blank space as a canvas to choose the layout that will suit your needs with the restrictions of the available surface area.
Wardrobe Problem #2: The dreaded dear corners
Dead corners are an issue in most of the wardrobe layouts we come across and are simply a wasted storage opportunity. You already have limited space so its best to have a few solutions to combat this common wardrobe problem.
Wardrobe Solution #2: No more dead corners in your wardrobe with clever designs elements.
The answer is clever hanging options, shoe carousels or corner shelves as you can see in the examples below:
Wardrobe Problem #3: Shoe Clutter – can’t find a pair.
Shoes as well as hand bags are difficult to store without having a wardrobe design specifically for these items. Whether you’re male or female its frustrating having a pile of shoes and complete disaster if you lose a one of a pair. Plus if they are piled up or boxed its difficult to make a quick choice to match your chosen outfit.
Wardrobe Solution #3: Efficiently organising your shoes with a wardrobe shoe storage system.
We have a number of storage options for shoes and handbags. These could be acrylic divider shelves perfect for hand bags and boots or angled shelving with rails so your shoes are fully displayed or shoe carousels storing your shoes with easy access.
Wardrobe Problem #4: Your partner is messy and doesn’t care.
Without being sexist most males are not that fussy when it comes to storing clothes – the corner floor of a wardrobe is an easy option. To counter a messy partner or to “train” them with clothe storage its best to make it obvious and simple.
Wardrobe Solution #4: Taming your sloppy partner with a real walk in wardrobe.
If there is a place for everything and everything in its place then your messy partner will most likely bend towards being less sloppy with their clothes. If they see in an instance how it works and how easy it is to find or store clothes they your battle has been one.
Wardrobe Problem #5: Limited adjustment to suit your wardrobe needs
Most wardrobes offer you little choice with changing the layout around and this is understandable as its structurally limited and fixed most of the time.
