Barbara Genda, Founder & Principle Designer shares her tips on what to consider when choosing fitted bedroom storage:
• Before you decide on any materials and finishes be sure to consider the positioning of storage and your bed, as these will have an impact upon one another. A little pre-planning can go a long way so don’t be afraid to ask for expert advice; a large room might seem spacious but if it only has one full usable wall then a multifunctional design is likely to be the best solution.
• Carefully assess your storage needs and be realistic in terms of how much hanging space you will require for the quantity of clothing, accessories and shoes you own. Considering the different lengths of your garments is also a must, as some items may need a full-length hanging rail.
• If you’re working with a small space, think about creating doors with a curved edge as opposed to linear lines so that the wardrobe end is not so obtrusive. Mirrored doors can also help to make a small bedroom feel larger, while push to open doors without a handle are great options for enhancing a flush finish.
• Use pull-out cabinetry and deep drawers that tuck storage away neatly and utilise the depth in full. These built in solutions are especially useful for awkward angled layouts and areas with low headroom. They also maximise floor space as they blend into interior schemes beautifully when not in use for a streamlined look.
