Are you constantly digging through piles of clothes, trying to find that one shirt you wore last Tuesday? Do you have more shoes than you know what to do with, but no place to put them? If your wardrobe is a hot mess, fitted wardrobes might be the answer to all of your problems. Or at least the ones related to clothing storage.
First off, let’s define what fitted wardrobes are. They’re basically custom-made closets that house your clothes and fit perfectly in your bedroom. They can be built to fit any shaped room and can be loaded up with all sorts of fancy features to meet your specific storage needs. From shoe racking to drawer organisers & jewellery boxes.
Why Fitted Wardrobes?
One of the biggest benefits of fitted wardrobes is their ability to declutter your home. With a regular wardrobe, it’s easy for clothes and other items to get all jumbled up and disorganized. This makes it a pain to find anything and can lead to frustrating search parties every morning before work. With a fitted wardrobe, everything has its own designated spot. This makes it a breeze to find what you’re looking for and to keep your clothes and accessories organized.
In addition to decluttering your home, fitted wardrobes can also help you make the most of your storage space. Traditional wardrobes can be bulky and take up a ton of room, leaving little space for other storage needs. Fitted wardrobes, on the other hand, are designed to fit snugly into your bedroom or other storage area. This gives you more space to store all of your stuff belongings out of view. Including that collection of novelty socks you’ve been hiding from your friends.
Buy Cheap, Buy Twice
Another great thing about fitted wardrobes is their durability, they are built to last. They’re made with high-quality materials and construction techniques, so they’re much less likely to break or get damaged over time. This is especially useful if you have kids or pets running around. Or if you’re just really clumsy.
Not only are fitted wardrobes practical, but they can also add some style to your bedroom or storage space. There are a ton of design options available, so you can choose a style that matches the decor of your home. This can help create a cohesive look and feel in your home, making it a more pleasant place to be (and making your clothes look even more fabulous).
Though fitted furniture can be expensive, it doesn’t always have to be. Matthew from Thomas Matthew Kitchens tells us that they can start from as little as £1200 for a double wardrobe depending on style. A good rule of thumb is to allow around £1500 per meter of units, so a 3m run of wardrobes (6 doors, 3 carcases) would cost in the region of £4500 depending on final specification & design. This will vary from firm to firm, but is a good starting point for anyone thinking about purchasing fitted wardrobes.
So, if you’re tired of a disorganized wardrobe and want to upgrade to a storage solution that actually works, fitted wardrobes might be the way to go. Not only can they declutter your home and make better use of your storage space, but they’re also durable and can add some style to your home. Give fitted wardrobes a try and say goodbye to cluttered and disorganized wardrobes forever (or at least until you buy more clothes).
If you are still stuck for space in your house, there are many storage options available for organizing your home, beyond fitted wardrobes. Some other options include:
If you have a lot of bulky items or clothes that you don’t need to access frequently, consider using underbed storage containers. These containers can be easily tucked away under your bed, out of sight but still easily accessible when needed.
Over-the-door organizers are a great option for storing items such as shoes, bags, and other accessories. These organizers can be hung on the back of a door and often have multiple compartments for organizing smaller items.
Drawer organizers can be a great way to keep smaller items such as socks, underwear, and scarves organized and easy to find. These organizers can be purchased in a variety of sizes and can be used in any dresser or chest of drawers.
Shelving units can be a great option for storing items such as books, CDs, and other miscellaneous items. These units can be freestanding or mounted to a wall, and can be purchased in a variety of sizes to fit your specific storage needs.
Baskets and bins
Baskets and bins are a versatile storage option that can be used to store a wide range of items. These containers can be used to store items such as toys, blankets, and other household items.
Hooks and hangers
Hooks and hangers are a simple but effective storage option for hanging items such as coats, bags, and hats. These can be mounted on a wall or on the back of a door for easy access.
Under-shelf baskets are a great way to make use of the space under shelves that might otherwise go unused. These baskets can be used to store items such as bags, shoes, or other small items.
