Built in wardrobes can revolutionise your bedroom where freestanding designs can’t. They can be made to fit that tricky corner with the sloping roof and come in a myriad of colors, finishes and materials. There are endless configurations and customizations available so you really can make it as individual as you like to suit your lifestyle and bedroom space in Singapore.
If your bedroom is small with little room for extra pieces of furniture like a dressing table, then consider having it incorporated into your built-in bedroom wardrobe. For small Singapore hdb flat, It’s a fabulous space-saving wardrobe idea and you can have shelving designed to accommodate make up, perfume and scents. A mirrored glass door can conceal it all and a glass top will give you the ideal space for storing your hairdryer and straighteners.
To help inspire your bedroom wardrobe overhaul, we’ve rounded up our favourite built-in wardrobe ideas, below.
A BRIGHT WHITE WARDROBE IDEA
Sometimes built in wardrobes are tucked away in an alcove which means they can be dark, which of course is the last thing you want when trying to find your favourite top. Invest in lights with adjustable arms that highlight each section and consider strip lights too, IKEA wardrobe Norrfly Led lights are ideal for this.
White is one of the pleasant and friendly colors for your home interiors. It can help you in enhancing the interiors and making the space look bigger from the visual perspective. The white wardrobe designs look fabulous and give an altogether new dimension to your room.
Apart from creating an organized space for keeping all your personal belongings, clothes and accessories, this IKEA wardrobe adds to the overall aesthetics of the room where you build a white wardrobe.
A FLOOR-TO-CEILING WARDROBE
The beauty of built in is that you really can tailor it to your needs and maximise the space from floor to ceiling. We often see designs that have doors from top to bottom too, but having doors for each section as seen here also looks great and will work particularly well in a period property as it has more character visually.
The beauty of built in wardrobe designs is that they can seamlessly fit into your existing scheme, or stand out – whichever you chose. Here, a wardrobe cabinet between the bedroom and ensuite and when the doors are closed you’d hardly notice it. But a clever feature here is that when you open the doors the light comes on automatically – a great design feature to consider.
If you have the budget then going completely bespoke will ensure you can choose everything from the hinges to the door knobs. You can also be on trend with the latest trends – like wicker weave for your doors. These beautiful bespoke rattan wardrobes really elevate the dressing room, adding a luxurious finish. As well as hanging cupboards, there are pull-out drawers that reveal solid oak drawer boxes with traditional dovetail joints. The fitted wardrobes also reflect the ‘Japandi’ trend with their restrained colour palette and seamless storage solutions.
CREATE A MULTI-FUNCTIONAL SPACE
Not only is the inside of your wardrobe cabinet for storing your clothes, it also needs to hold your shoes, overnight cases, watches, jewellery and keepsakes. When you consider your shelving layout make sure you have enough room for these important pieces. They can be of varying heights and needn’t take up much space but are worth considering.
USE WARDROBE DOORS AS A DESIGN FEATURE
“With regards to finish and material options, we now offer more than ever before, meaning that you really can tailor your furniture to your style and taste.’ explains Simon Tchernial, Senior Designer at Neville Johnson. ‘Too often people purchase shelving units and free-standing furniture that fulfil the requirements of immediate storage needs but do nothing to enhance the appeal of the room.’
We love this panelled-door IKEA wardrobe idea that add texture and interest to this bedroom, and how they match the dressing table.
MAKE A FEATURE OUT OF A CORNER DESIGN
Although it’s lovely to have a co-ordinated look, sometimes it’s good to make a feature out of an aspect like a wardrobe. We love how this corner wardrobe has been painted white from ceiling to floor, it makes it stand out as a design element and it ties in with the white painted window seat.
CONSIDER THE OVERALL DESIGN
It’s easy to get bogged down with the miniature of the interior of your wardrobe, but the outside is just as important. How it looks when the doors are closed is key to creating a cohesive look. The built-in wardrobe space should seamlessly fit with your bedroom scheme. We love how these deep green doors and island area in this wardrobe cabinet design match and are linked by the brass handles and accessories.
HATE FOLDING? CHOOSE RAILS INSIDE
The interior of your wardrobe is key and it’s worth spending a bit of time considering what you need to store. We’re not all a whizz at folding, so having more inner rails than drawers could be the answer to your non-folding dreams! Half-height rails for blouses, shirts, skirts and jackets will make your life much easier, and if you wear dresses have one rail that’s full height.
There are many elements that go into creating the perfect wardrobe design in Singapore. What color scheme will best fit? How much lighting do you need? What furniture styles are best for you and your family?
