Wardrobe Accessory Ideas
Getting the internal layout and functionality of your wardrobes right is one of the most important parts of the design. It’s important that your wardrobes look good but the internal layout needs to function well. There are a number of stylish and innovative accessories available for wardrobe interiors. They help to make better use of the storage space within and improve the functionality of your wardrobes considerably. Take a look at our recommendations so you can come up with your own wardrobe accessory ideas.
Internal Dividers & Shelving
One way to simply change the configuration of the wardrobe layout is to add extra shelving and/or a clothes divider. A clothes divider is esentially an insert that divides the open space into 2 sections. In the images below on the right hand side both have this divider. In both examples, the first section is a smaller hanging area and the second includes extra shelving. This can give you more space for folded clothes as well as allowing you to have flexibilty and storage. These can also come in shelving on both sides.
Extra Hanging and Pull Downs
Depending on the height of the wardrobe we often recommend pull downs instead of higher shelving, this allows you to maximise the space and allow easy access to clothes that are being hung up. This would remove the extra storage at the top section.
A lot of wardrobes come with built in external drawer units, however for those that do not you can still add internal drawer sets to get the desired storage without having to compromise on external finish and door choices.
Often people who need drawer storage feel they need to stick to a hinged wardrobe range however they can easily choose a sliding wardrobe range and have hidden drawer pack internally (As seen below).
Tie and Belt Racks
Tie and belt racks for wardrobes allow you to keep your belts and ties hanging up so that you can see them easily and so that they are not just left at the end of the wardrobe and out of sight. Its a great and tiny solution. They of course can be used for scarves and other accessories.
Self Close and Soft Close Systems
Some wardrobes come with self closing systems included and others can have them added. Its a great feature as it stop doors being slammed shut and allows you to easily close doors especially large sliding doors with ease.
Shoe and Trouser Racks
This stylish pull out trouser rail is particularly useful if you need to keep your neatly ironed trousers crease free and organised. Although this rail is a nice addition to any wardrobe it does take up quite a bit of space for the relatively small amount of storage it provides.
Similarily the shoe rack is a great addition to the bottom of your wardrobe and helps keep your wardrobe organised and clean.
Interior and Exterior Wardrobe Lighting
Wardrobe lighting can really enhance the look of your wardrobe, illuminating the amazing finishes externally and giving you amazing light when looking for that right outfit. There are a variety of styles available included squared LED’s, Strip lighting, internal motion sensor lighting and much more. They can be an expensive addition but will last thousands of hours as they use the latest LED energy saving technology.
