Few people have the luxury of being able to afford a custom designer home. They may dream about having as much space as they like and being able to configure each room according to their family's needs, but in the cold light of day, they may have to make do with something 'off the shelf'. If you moved into a particular house because it was strategically located or it was as much as your budget could afford, then you may feel as if you have to make do with some aspects. However, you may still be able to get more out of your space with some selective customisation, so what, for example, could you do in your bedroom?
Time Marches On
Many older homes were built at a time when life was a lot simpler and when families may not have had as many needs as they do today. It's not surprising, therefore, to come across a bedroom that is a little squeezed for space or that may have been poorly designed in the beginning. You may have been able to fit your primary items of furniture in there, but certain parts of the room are wasted, and your conventional wardrobe is not doing its job either.
Perhaps it's time for you to bring in an interior designer who can help you to revolutionise the space through the use of custom furniture. You may well be able to make full use of that wasted space by introducing a built-in wardrobe instead, and you may also be able to improve the overall look and feel of the room at the same time.
Mr and Mrs Average
Your current wardrobe may be purely functional, but it is designed to please the 'average' user, whoever that may be. You may find that your possessions are dumped onto the floor as there are no available shelves, and the space towards the top of the wardrobe may be completely wasted.
Maximum Use of Space
With a built-in wardrobe, you can add shelves all the way to the top and close to the ceiling or introduce smaller cupboards, shelves or drawers towards the bottom. You can add a shoe rack a bit further up and then have different types of rail to accommodate all your clothes.
Once all is done, you can add a sliding door, complete with a full-length mirror, and this may give you even more room for other, smaller items of furniture than you had before.
