1. Maximising storage space
Make sure you consider all the space available. For example if you have tall ceiling heights, utilise the width and vertical height of the area and allow the cabinets to extent to the ceiling.
Adding a cupboard on top of the wardrobe space would be an ideal option to store things you don’t need on a daily basis.
2. Height of the clothing rail
Are you a person with lots of long dresses or business suits?
When we design internal dimensions we consider how to best use the internal space of the wardrobe. For long hanging, we generally allow 1.7m from the rail to the bottom of the wardrobe to allow for items such as coats and dresses.
3. How many drawers?
Dovetail drawers are incredibly strong and well constructed and are undoubtedly the best way to store smaller items of clothing.
4. Handles, handeless or touch latches?
The finishing touch to your wardrobe, which is the most essential, is how you are going to open them. Handles whether brass, brushed chrome or wood can add an extra feature to the front elevation.
If you want a seamless design, a handleless door can be achieved by various designs. For example you could have small cut outs for your hand to slip into or a J profile handle, which essentially is a ridge on the inside of the door frame which runs the whole length of the door.
Just to spice up you options once more, touch latches are another system, which would enable you to have a truly seamless wardrobe, there are no handles in sight!
5. Extras for fashion trend setters
Adding mirrors to the front of your wardrobe doors can be a great way to add detail to the design whilst also making a smaller bedroom space feel larger.
If you have a shallow space for the wardrobe to fit, consider using alternative hanging rails that extend laterally rather than horizontally.
Have lots of precious shoes?
Internal drawers can be fit with gadgets and mechanisms to make it easier to store awkward items.

Thank you for explaining that adding mirrors to the front of your wardrobe doors can be a great way to add aesthetics whilst also making a smaller bedroom space appears larger. I am planning to buy a custom sliding wardrobe door for my room and you gave me very good pointers to consider. I should look for a provider in our area that sells a variety of wardrobe doors.

This post made an interesting point that when looking to have custom wardobe designed, it is encouraged that we maximize the storage space, so that all our our clothing, accessories and whatnot will have a designated space. The other day my wife mentioned she is looking to have a custom walk-in wardrobe built for our home. I will definitely keep this information in mind when I look to have it designed.

It was captivating when you shared that your small bedroom can appear larger by adding mirrors to your wardrobe doors. I am looking for a contractor that can work on the built-in wardrobe in my room. I will also ask them to add a mirror to the from of the wardrobe doors.
