Transform Your Kitchen Space

Hello, my name is Katy and this blog is dedicated to how you can improve the interior of your home. Last year, I renovated my kitchen and it completely changed my life. Although I am really happy with the results, I didn't expect it to be so challenging. I kind of jumped in at the deep end, ripped my old kitchen out and then realised I had no idea how to install a new one or even what design I would like to choose. Thankfully, my friend who is a bit of an expert at these things guided me through the entire process and I learnt a lot of useful things. Since then, I have started to rennovate the rest of my home and garden.

Advantages of Built-in Wardrobes

Interior design can be a tricky field, and when it comes to storage space, the difficulty only increases. All homeowners have personal preferences, and it can be time consuming to achieve the perfect balance between furniture, empty space, and decorations. In terms of closets, one of the best space-saving solutions available today is a built-in wardrobe or closet. If you're curious about how this installation can allow you to take advantage of empty space in your bedroom or walls, make sure to read on about their many benefits!

A Solution for Smaller Bedrooms

Unlike walk-in closets that require large portions of the room, built-in wardrobes can actually be inserted along walls that wouldn't otherwise be used as storage space. This can be a much-needed addition in small rooms or homes where extra space comes at a premium. While you will have to make sure the area you choose doesn't contain load-bearing support beams for the roof, there should be enough room between these to find the right space.


Don't let the term "wardrobe" fool you. A built-in closet can be used for anything, and there are plenty of customisable options to allow you to utilize the extra space however you wish. Many builders opt for solid wood shelving—which is durable and attractive—that can be used for anything from hanging clothes to storing important files, but cheaper synthetic options like plastic or metal are also available.

Special add-ons like shoe racks, belt hangers, or tie organizers are also available for a slightly higher cost.

They Can Be Added After-the-Fact

If you are constructing your own home, your options in terms of storage, closets, and designs are limitless, but for the majority of new homeowners, the convenience of a customized home is not an option. You will have to contend with the preferences of the previous owners, and you may or may not agree with some of their decisions. Luckily, a built-in wardrobe can be added after the initial construction of the home. While inserting a walk-in may not even be possible (and if it is, the cost will be sky-high), a built-in option is doable, cost-effective, and simple.

If you are struggling with storage solutions in your home, you should definitely consider installing a built-in closet. Their benefits are wide-ranging, and with a few construction tools and some spare time, you can easily add one to a bedroom as a fun and useful do-it-yourself project.
