Custom-designed wardrobes

How to optimise bedroom storage

Walk-in wardrobes can be custom-made to suit your individual needs and optimise storage capacity.

A custom-designed wardrobe has more benefits than meets the eye.

Not only does it look great, the well-planned use of space saves you time – and stress – in accessing what you need in a hurry.

Often, lack of organised storage space in other areas of the home – or even garage – results in non-bedroom paraphernalia cluttering floor and precious shelf space in the bedroom wardrobe. 

Hidden away from visitors, the bedroom wardrobe may inadvertently become home to miscellaneous household items: things like rolls of wrapping paper,  piles of documents, box games and disused toys, sentimental items, photo albums, sporting equipment, musical instruments, luggage and all sorts of  flotsam and jetsam of people’s lives. Sound familiar?

That’s not to say non-clothing items shouldn’t be kept in your wardrobe, but there are solutions to creating a more efficient and attractive storage area.

We help renovators and builders plan the area for their clothing and day-to-day items so they can keep things tidy and easily accessible.

So, how do we help transform the space?

Wardrobe size

You may want to better utilise a standard wardrobe in a children’s bedroom, or design a luxurious dressing room-style walk-in robe – so there is obviously no one-size-fits-all solution for everybody! Either way, careful planning with cabinetry specialists can optimise the available space and functional needs within your individual budget.

A floor-to-ceiling mirror transforms a walk-in robe into a dressing room and gives the illusion of more space.
A cabinetry specialist can help renovators and home builders plan the best use of storage space in wardrobes of all sizes.
Shelving, drawers and varied hanging rail heights can be used in wardrobes of all sizes.

Storage checklist

When designing efficient cabinetry solutions, our priority is to stream-line what the wardrobe is actually for, which is primarily clothing. Then we look at what else needs to be accommodated.

We discuss your lifestyle. How often do you need to access the non-clothing items? Should these be sorted, donated to a charity, moved to a higher shelf, or better stored elsewhere in the home?

A well-planned wardrobe can neatly and efficiently accommodate every-day items and long-term storage, such as luggage.

Drawers

We then look at maximising every centimetre of space in the wardrobe.

For example, if there is only one long shelf and one hanging rail in a walk-in-robe – the space is clearly not efficient.

A mix of drawers and open spaces are always a benefit. We look at designing deeper drawers for bulky items like jumpers, and smaller drawers for socks, underwear and accessories. Carefully planning the number, size and best position for drawers opens more space for surrounding storage.

Quality built-in drawers in your wardrobe open floor space in the rest of your bedroom.
Drawers can be customised to provide quick and easy access to small items.

Hanging rails

We then determine with you how much space you really need for full-hanging items versus room to devote to half-hanging rails.

Can you see how much storage area we are creating already? 

Increase hanging space with a combination of rail heights for short and long garments.

Open spaces - shelves and cubes

While drawers are space savers and make for organised, easy-to-access storage, we also look at providing some open spaces, for example small and medium-sized cubed areas where you may store shoes, handbags, hats, folded clothes, or ornaments.

Then of course, we ensure you have overhead shelving for larger or long-term items – your boxed wedding dress perhaps, musical instruments or suitcases which just can’t claim space anywhere else in your home.

Colour trend

Timber grain melamine  is a continuing trend with luxurious appeal.  A less-expensive option is the standard white melamine board.

A custom-designed fit-out in your walk-in robe, or creating more storage in an existing standard wardrobe, comes down to your lifestyle, storage needs and budget. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, which is why we collaborate with our clients to customise the best storage solution for their individual needs.

Timber grain melamine is available in varied colours if your budget allows you to upgrade from a standard white melamine finish.

Claim your space

Whether your wardrobe is large or small, it makes sense to optimise every centimetre of space with efficient cabinetry design. 

A cabinetry specialist can guide you through attractive and functional layout options, ensuring a quality fit-out and optimising your storage space.

An eight-star energy display home built to raise money for Goulburn Valley Health’s oncology unit has received positive feedback from visitors.

The GV Health Foundation Charity Home, built by Sessions Builders and a host of other local trades and suppliers on Sanctuary Dve, Kialla, opened to the public in early February.

As the only eight-star energy home in the Goulburn Valley, its design and future sale for charity, has created a lot of excitement in the community.

Sessions Builders charity home project manager Bethanie Hemeter said local trades and suppliers gave as much as they could to bring the charity project to fruition.

“Any generosity was welcomed, so we could keep the cost down to donate as much as possible,” Bethanie said.

“Businesses donated services, materials, hard goods, soft goods and their time to build this home and proceeds from the sale of the house will go to the GV Health oncology unit.

“The generosity from trades and suppliers has been fantastic and the response from people visiting the home has been amazing.”

The charity house, also known as the Verde display home, will be sold within the next year. In the meantime, display home visitors are being wowed by the home’s many features.

If your kitchen wish list includes “lots of drawers”, you are not alone.

Most of our clients tell us they want as many drawers as possible in their new or re-modelled kitchen.

A kitchen brimming with drawers is on-trend for good reason.

Drawers provide 30 per cent more storage than cupboards and make it easier to find and access items.

This means a more organised kitchen – and less twisting and bending to access hard-to-reach items.

Drawers require more hardware than cupboards, so drawers are more expensive. Therefore, your budget and kitchen shape will ultimately determine your quantity of drawers.
