How to Choose the Perfect Built-in Wardrobes for your Adelaide Home

How to Choose the Perfect Built-in Wardrobes for your Adelaide Home

November 11, 2021

Built-in wardrobes are considered the safest wardrobe choice for most homes, but you should still be careful when selecting them. Wardrobes are semi-permanent; once you have them installed in your home, changing or renovating them won’t be easy.

It’s essential you choose your built-in wardrobe for more practical reasons, not just because it’s pretty. Till you start looking at many built-in wardrobes, you won’t realise how many options are out there, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. But, what you’re looking for is the perfect wardrobe, and you must not forget that.

So, how do you choose the perfect built-in wardrobes? By:

Consider space

How much space does your home have? In all things you want to do in your Adelaide home, you have to consider how much space you can dedicate to built-in wardrobes. For example, your master bedroom can have a built-in wardrobe that spans its walls, but you may have to improvise for the smaller rooms.
You may need to consider open built-in wardrobes for smaller rooms or restrict the wardrobe space to a spare corner in the room. Hinged wardrobes take up space in small rooms; sliding wardrobes are a better choice.


The perfect built-in wardrobe is subjective. What’s ideal for another person may not be perfect for you. A wardrobe’s design may be attractive, but the layout may not fit in with your lifestyle. Maybe, it’s mostly filled with drawers and folding space, but you’d rather hang your clothes. So, while you may like a design, ensure its layout fits you.

Select wardrobe designs that reflect what you love as a person. If you’re a person that loves bright colours, there’s nothing that says you can’t have a bright pink wardrobe. Personalise your wardrobe as much as possible.


How many clothes are you going to be keeping in your wardrobe? If you’re going to be sharing your room with your partner, you’ll need a built-in wardrobe that’s big enough to accommodate all your belongings.

However, if you live in your Adelaide home alone and don’t have many clothes, you should still get a big wardrobe, especially if you don’t plan to move anytime soon. Meanwhile, the built-in wardrobes in the other rooms don’t have to be too large. A wardrobe is only as good as the items it can contain.


Your budget plays a significant factor in the type of wardrobe you get. You may want a particular wardrobe design, but it may be more than you can afford. However, being short on cash doesn’t mean you have to settle for mediocre built-in wardrobes; in fact, it can let you be more creative with your wardrobe.

And even if you have a sizable budget, you’ll still need to be careful because every single wardrobe you see would tempt you.

Your home, preference, items and budget are all you need for the perfect wardrobe. Professional assistance is necessary when making such an important decision, and that’s where Hills Robes comes in. We make selecting the perfect wardrobe easier by giving you wardrobe choices that align with your preference and budget.
