Two Tips for Those Who Want to Add Walk-In Wardrobes to Their Homes

If you want to fit a walk-in wardrobe in your home, you might want to take note of these suggestions.

Invest in some doors

If you intend to create some very lavish and beautifully-decorated walk-in wardrobes, each of which will serve not only as a practical storage space but also as a feast for the eyes, then you might not love the idea of hanging doors in front of them, as this will mean you won't be able to see them as soon as you enter whichever bedrooms they are in. However, no matter how lovely you think it might be to be greeted by the sight of an open-plan walk-in wardrobe, it is best to hide these storage areas behind some doors.

The reasons for this are as follows; firstly, if the wardrobes and their contents are not protected by doors, dust will quickly settle on the footwear, clothing, rails, drawers handles and flooring in these areas. If your garments and footwear get coated in dust, then you may end up having to rewash them or wipe them down before wearing them. Also, if the wardrobe features get dusty, it will take you longer to clean them.

Furthermore, if the bedrooms in which the walk-in wardrobes will be placed have large windows, the sunlight that pours in through them may cause some parts of your bright-coloured garments to fade and leave these articles of clothing looking patchy and dull. By fitting some doors on the walk-in wardrobes, you can protect their contents from both the dust and sunlight, and in doing so, you can avoid having to replace faded garments or do excessive amounts of cleaning.

Add radiators inside the wardrobes

If the wardrobes will be large enough for you to walk around in, then you may need to fit radiators in them, to ensure that damp or mildew doesn't take hold inside these areas. Ideally, the radiators should be placed in parts of the wardrobes where the heat they will emit can be freely dispersed, without garments or accessories getting in their way.

Additionally, rather than opting for standard radiators which are designed to be placed lengthways across walls, you might want to opt for ones that are narrow but very tall, as the former could use up a lot of the wardrobes' storage spaces, that could otherwise have functioned as spots for drawer units or shoe racks.

Turning Your Home into Your Workplace

When I decided to become a freelance designer, I decided I would work from home. I was sick and tired of being in an office all day and to be honest, some of my workmates were pretty annoying. However, I did not consider that I might have to make some changes to my home in order to make it suitable. On the first day of my new life working from home, I realised I would need much more natural light, so I had new windows installed. I then realised that I would need a larger work table to work on my cut out designs. In the end, I made hundreds of changes and I learnt an awful lot about home improvement.
