Create a walk-in wardrobe that even Carrie Bradshaw would be envious of!

Here are some simple ideas that will take it from ordinary to luxe!

GO CHUNKY

Have cabinetry built from thicker board (for example 32mm). Standard wardrobe internals are usually made from 16-18mm white melamine board.  The photo’s below show the same white cabinetry in both 18mm and 32mm board.  The difference speaks for itself.

16mm Board - Adjustable shelves – exposed holes                     32mm Board – Fixed shelves – no holes

 

ATTENTION TO DETAIL

Exposed holes for adjustable shelving can cheapen the look of your cabinetry (Photo 1). Taking some time to plan what you want to store in each section of the wardrobe before building will enable you to request fixed shelving so that exposed holes will not be seen (Photo 2).  These small details will give the wardrobe a cleaner, crisper look and will look more like custom made cabinetry than flat-pack cabinetry.

This can be seen in the above photos.

 

ADD COLOUR

Light coloured laminate can tend to look a little like flat-pack cabinetry. Give it that wow factor by adding some colour or detail.  If you don’t want to bring in any colour in the cabinetry, an accent chair or artwork will lift the space, as can be seen below in one of The Block reveals this week.
