What Houzz contributors are saying:
Square upThe wall of cupboards in this bedroom has been painted a soft grey to blend in with the rest of the space. But to add some interest, the owners have gone for a panelled design on the wardrobe doors. The simple, Shaker-style framework gives the room an element of character and texture, but is understated enough to maintain a calm feel.Find a wide range of wardrobe organisers in the Houzz Shop.
Keep it tidyWaking up to an untidy view won’t engender a Zen-like start to the day, so if your bedroom has become a bit of a dumping ground with nowhere to put everything, consider investing in some smart fitted wardrobes. There are so many styles to choose from and, while it may mean sacrificing some floor space, if it puts an end to tripping over piles of stuff every time you get out of bed in the morning, that can only be a good thing.Find a carpenter or joiner in your area
Irrepairable itemsIf you’re not wearing an item of clothing because it’s torn or tattered, there are a couple of things you can do. If you’re handy with a needle and thread and want to try to revive some of your togs, then set aside a few hours and fix your favourites.If that’s not an option, there’s good news for those of us who hate waste – fabric can be recycled. Help out the charity shop by bagging all items not suitable for resale together and mark it ‘rags’.
Build floor-to-ceiling storageUsing vertical space – in other words, that bit of air over the top of your wardrobes that might otherwise remain unexploited – is a wise move. Fitted wardrobes will give you that streamlined hotel style so popular for master suites, and will make practical use of every available inch. By using the high cupboards for items you might only need to get to a couple of times a year, such as out-of-season clothes, you can free up more accessible storage, too.Find carpenters and joiners in your area to take on this kind of job
