Thinking of everything
Choose your wardrobe in such a way that it works for you and you are not spending too much time trying to organise it. You might hear people say wardrobe management is an art but here are a few tips that will make it a quick and easy process. By not having to organise your wardrobe every other day, these suggestions will help make your life much simpler in the long run:
l His and hers: The wardrobe of the master bedroom is usually much larger than the ones in any other room. This gives better opportunities for more compartments and sections in the wardrobe. Couples can use smart internal configuration to ensure each partner gets not just a designated section for themselves, but for each item in their wardrobe. For instance, a section for ties, belts, socks and handkerchiefs and a section for scarfs, westerns and other accessories.
l Mirrored wardrobes: Having mirrored wardrobes can have advantages both in terms of functionality and the look. Mirrors make any room look larger. It reflects the natural light and thus add brightness and dimension to the room, making it feel airier and spacious. Full-length mirrors in the wardrobes also help people make quick decisions when it comes to dressing. And not to forget the fact that you might also end up saving that space for the mirror somewhere else in the room.
l Planned internals: Indian attires need special functionalities in the wardrobes. Thick shawls, heavy lehengas and embroidered saris demand racks with a lot of depth. You definitely need a separate space to hang saris, a section for those expensive suits or sherwanis or even those crisp shirts. The provision of planned internals for sari racks, trousers racks, suits and ties help decongest the space and keep it organised. This way, all your expensive clothes will be safe and won't get mixed up with your daily apparel.
l Lighting and sensors: When it comes to wardrobes, people mostly talk about the space utilisation and aesthetic factors. But your wardrobe is definitely incomplete without a proper lighting system. Lights outside and sensors inside not only lift the chic look of the wardrobe but provide better visibility to the farthest corners of the various pull-out drawers, baskets and racks. This helps finding things more easily in the night without disturbing anyone else.
l Wire baskets: Most of us don't immediately think of these when deciding the design of our wardrobes but users come back to say that it is a brilliant addition in any wardrobe. With the wire basket, all wardrobes are equipped to act like a self-organiser for smaller things, apart from the storage. Installation of pull-out wire baskets is the best option as this system offers a great solution for storing difficult items like waist belts, socks, underclothes, in a systematic manner and makes it easily accessible. It also helps in maintaining hygiene in your wardrobe as the wire baskets permits air flow. When necessary, one can even keep the basket outside under the sun with its contents and fix it back when done, thus avoiding any unpleasant odour that some stored clothing might have.
