Forget the traditional freestanding wardrobe or built-in robes, a walk-in robe can provide a much more extensive space for storing your clothes and can transform your room to the height of luxury. At Hills Robes and Kitchens, we are experts in providing our clients with premium quality wardrobes that can’t be beaten.
With a walk in wardrobe comes an endless amount of options regarding your wardrobe fit out, with each offering different degrees of style versus function. Our walk in robes are made from white velvet melamine board, with the option to choose from hundreds of colours and textures.
A customised fit-out will make the best use of every inch of space you have available. This ensures that every inch of railing, shelves and drawers fits exactly to maximise your storage options.
Below we have listed four things you need to know if you’re considering building a walk in robe.
The number of hanging rails needed will differ from person to person, but one thing that tends to always seems to ring true: women need more hanging space than men.
We suggest getting a mix of both long and short hanging options. Consider getting more short hangers, for clothing items such as shirts, pants, jackets and skirts.
Save space by hanging long hanging rails into a corner and hang clothing that does not require regular access.
Drawers are essential for smaller items such as socks, underwear and other small accessories.
Also making sure that the drawers are wide enough, so your clothing doesn’t have to be squeezed in, and consider including small boxes or dividers inside for rolled belts, scarves, ties, etc. to keep everything organised.
Practical and cost-effective, shelving provides your wardrobe with a perfect space for your folded jumpers, jeans and shirts.
Installing open shelving also gives you an ideal place to store your handbag collection and is a great way to add some visual interest to your wardrobe.
Narrow open shelving installed along the bottom of your walk-in robe is a great way to store your shoes. Not only is this shelving accessible, but you are also able to make use of an otherwise dead space underneath clothing rails.
At Hills Robes and Kitchens we pride ourselves on providing our customers with locally made walk-in wardrobes of a superior quality. Every one of our wardrobes is custom built using state of the art machinery at our factory located in Salisbury South. Give us a call today!
