What to Consider When Choosing a Wardrobe Insert

  • The size of your wardrobe; looking at the dimension of your wardrobe makes it possible for you to accurately measure what you need built in there. Measuring the dimension against your wardrobe needs gives you a good idea of what to leave out and what can be fitted in. When the wardrobe size is relatively small, you’ll need to forego some of the shelves or sitting space ideas for a more functional wardrobe. The size or space to work with should always come first when choosing a wardrobe insert.
  • Be practical. You need to take an account of what you own so that you’ll know exactly what you need built in. If you have more dresses, shoes or sweaters and tops; this will determine the inserts needed for the closet. Having this prior understanding helps you pick the right wardrobe for your needs.
  • Consider quality; the look and style of your wardrobe inserts should reflect your personal style. This means that, if you choose a look that is outdated and less than luxurious or elegant, everyone walking in will associate you personally with that for ages to come. You can choose an interior that is both functional and trendy quite easily. Just line up your needs with your wants and the current market trends, then start with the process of elimination. Add in a touch of personality and class.
  • Categorize the need for columns, rows, shelves, hangers and drawers based on the items stored in these wardrobe interiors. If you have more accessories, prioritize the rows and columns to shelves and hangers. If your dresses outweigh the shoes then make more closet hangers than shelves to allow your wardrobe to be perfectly functional.

But if big enough to house a double or triple closet, then go ahead and have one fitted for you.

Get the measurements of the room right, this helps your wardrobe designer to factor in such aspects well on time.
