Casa Forma Welcomes You To The Ultimate Luxury Interior Design Blog
Closets are a breeding ground for clothes, accessories and most often shoes. Without careful management they turn into jumbles of chaos where you won’t be able to find what you want, when you need it. In fact this can get so out of hand that when you do finally sort it you find expensive clothes that you’ve only worn once….and often no longer fit.
Don’t fret though we’re here to offer you some of our best advice on planning the design of your perfect wardrobe.
How much space you have to use is going to largely limit how you can plan out your wardrobe. We have two options real options to consider;
Walk in wardrobes
We have been fortunate to work with a number of clients who have the space for a walk in wardrobe. This leaves a whole space dedicated to organisation and preparation. Walk in wardrobes can be complimented with dressing tables and mirrors to allow you to create the perfect look every time.
Built in Wardrobes
These offer a lot of options to organise in a way that reflects your personal clothing needs. We like to create custom wardrobes with well-defined areas for different clothing types and accessories.
Organisation is incredibly important and one of the most common mistakes we make. Most people organise their wardrobes by clothing types rather than use. The best way to organise a wardrobe is front to back and side to side.
The Back of your wardrobe is the place to put all the clothes that you don’t wear on a regular basis. It is the cocktail dresses, the shoes that hurt your feet but are just too pretty not to wear and the once in while clothing.
The front of the wardrobe needs to contain everything that you normally wear. The day to day work and day to day casual clothing. It should be organised left to right with clearly defined sections for casual and formal wear. There should be a dedicated space for accessories – at waist height or on display. There should also be clear compartments for shoes so that they aren’t shoved in boxes.
Ideally clothes should be sorted by colour and by style. This way you don’t have to spend time working out what goes with what. A well organised wardrobe displays this for you. Having a series of pre-prepared outfits for every mood and weather is incredibly useful.
How the wardrobe is designed is incredibly important. During the interior design process we like to make sure that lighting and mirrors are built into wardrobes. This let’s the clothes stand out and makes it easier for you to access outfits. At the same time we have to include mirrors in the wardrobe or nearby. Mirrors are perfect when they are full length but it’s also great to have a makeup mirror. In terms of style we’ll create something that fits perfectly with the design of your home.
Good luck turning your wardrobe or closet into an organised style icon.
