Benefits of Built-in Wardrobes for Small Spaces

One of the issues that many people have with a small home layout is the closet space. You want to have storage for your clothing, but you may also want to use the space as efficiently as possible. One way to do this is with built-in wardrobes. If you have considered a built-in wardrobe for your small space, but still aren't sold on the idea, here are a few benefits to keep in mind.

Custom Design

One of the leading benefits to having a built-in wardrobe is the custom design option available. You can design the entire space of your built-in wardrobes for each room of your home. For example, if you choose one for your children's room you can have lower drawers, hanging hooks, and clothing rods to fit their needs. You can also have these adjustable so they can be reconfigured easily as your children grow. For the master bedroom, you may want to add linen storage, purse storage, tie storage, and clothing storage as well. This is not something you would find with a traditional open closet space.

Lighting Options

When you have a traditional wardrobe or closet, you may have one main light source that doesn't fully illuminate the entire area. With built-in wardrobes, you can have lighting options added to each level and space. This lighting is integrated into the design allowing you to fully illuminate the areas that may normally be in the dark or shadowed. You can also have the lights put on a sensor device so they come on when the particular space is opened or drawer is opened.

Space Fitting Options

You may believe that certain spaces in your home would not be suitable for built-in wardrobes. The truth is, a built-in wardrobe can be built to fit the space you have. This means that smaller spaces can still benefit from the wardrobe. Even odd spaces and room angles can be incorporated into the space fitting built and customization of the wardrobe. This is especially helpful in odd shaped rooms of vintage homes or smaller spaces of attic style or basement style rooms.

These are only three of the benefits to having built-in wardrobes for your small home space. If you think these benefits will be ideal for your home, contact your local closet and wardrobe contractor. They can schedule a consultation and help with pricing and ideas for the space that you have.
