The right wardrobe with the perfect design has the potential to do so much for a room. Here at Belvisi we’re always giving advice to customers to help them select the perfect wardrobe, an issue which is often far more of a stumbling block than people first think. The first step should always be to step back and consider where the wardrobe will fit in with the rest of the design in any given room.
Define your space
From an aesthetic perspective, what role will it perform? A plainer wardrobe with discrete handles and flush doors like this modern hinged wardrobe directs attention to other items of furniture, perfect for smaller rooms with more defined furniture that you may wish to take centre stage. On the other hand, larger rooms with more space to fill might cry out for something like this distinctive TV wardrobe to share the plentiful limelight and contribute more fully to the look and feel you’re trying to create.
Once the homework has been done and you know what you’re aiming for, it’s time to fit that vision into the reality of the situation. What sort of space are you working with? Narrower wall space with a lot of depth lends itself well to a set of durable hinged doors, whereas if you’re installing a wardrobe into a thinner room, sliding or coplanar doors are going to serve you well.
Picking the right contemporary wardrobe
Many of the wardrobes in our new range from modern Italian furniture gurus, Mobilform, are available in any of these three variations, so a choice made on practical grounds doesn’t necessarily mean compromising on how you want your dream room to turn out.
Did you notice that the above examples haven’t been confined to the bedroom? Modern wardrobe design has come so far from the static, dust-topped days of yore that wardrobes now appear as storage solutions all over. Of course they’re still a cornerstone of contemporary bedroom furniture, but sliding fitted wardrobes are also a popular choice in the hallway. Used like this, they provide an unobtrusive place for coats, bags and other clutter, invaluable here where space is at its tightest.
This principle has even burst out of the home and found its way into the workplace. Offices and similar commercial spaces are nowadays creating a cleaner, more expansive look by making use of cutting-edge wardrobe designs like the Grove hinged model or this contemporary covered design. Replacing jumbled, irregular-looking coat stands and hooks with a neat rail concealed in an understated wardrobe adds that extra air of professionalism to any office space.
Customisation is key
With so many possible uses, you’ll be pleased to know that modern wardrobe design leaves room for so much creative control when it comes to customising individual pieces. Examples like this modern sliding design come with a shelf and two hanging rails as standard, but options like internal LED lights and shoe storage allow you to personalise your wardrobe down to the finest detail.
In the modern home, it’s more important than ever to get exactly what you want. One size doesn’t fit all, so a bespoke approach to the perfect furniture is essential. So much of our furniture is selected for its modular flexibility for just this reason. Whether you’re fond of longer garments and need a rail a bit higher from the floor, or you’re a strapping, broad-shouldered type who needs their wardrobe that little bit wider. Belvisi has your needs covered.
We extend this flexibility to all the furniture we offer. Some customers come to us looking for individual bespoke pieces, while others are interested in taking advantage of our full interior design service. Either way, we’re proud to offer a level of service which takes the time to understand each individual customer and work with them to realise their visions for a gorgeous new home.
