Choosing different wardrobes can be a little daunting and complicated task because many people end up with less storage space than they wanted or the wardrobe they chose is the wrong fit for the room. One uncomplicated solution is inbuilt wardrobes or ‘fitted wardrobes’. These are integrated closets that are custom designed for any space. By choosing this type of wardrobe, you won’t have to worry about looking for the correct wardrobe with the right storage and correct measurements. Built-in wardrobes also have many more benefits compared to standard wardrobes.

Increased space

Built in wardrobes can be made to fit every kind of space. They are the very good solution to deal with non-standard spaces. These types of wardrobes can be made to fit into corners that are L-shaped or can be placed in various other free spaces, increasing the living space in any room. By using built-in wardrobes, many unused spaces come to be useful, unlike free standing wardrobes that require a specific space for placement.

Custom configurations

Another great advantage of inbuilt wardrobes is that you have the freedom of adjusting or customising the internal configuration and storage accessories inside the wardrobe to your specific needs. For example, if you have a very formal wardrobe and use jewellery often then you can custom design the wardrobe with more hanging space and more space for trouser racks and more space for storing accessories like watches and jewellery.

Enhanced interior

With built-in wardrobes, you can be a part of the whole design process. The wardrobe can be designed with your needs in mind. The wardrobe can be designed to mix with the rest of the interior regarding style and finishes. The wardrobe can be built with materials that match the interior styles. For example, you can choose the walnut wood wardrobe for a more traditional interior or an acrylic finish with steel handles for contemporary interiors.


Another great benefit associated with inbuilt wardrobes is that the person can customise the wardrobe with lights from inside to brighten it even more. They can customise with small lights on the inside and less on the doors. This will provide a very amazing and wonderful look and feel when opened. This will ultimately enhance the interior beauty of the room.
