Planning a functional wardrobe is a simple process. Our goal is to create a wardrobe that is both functional and organised. To do this, we need to begin by gaining an uderstanding of the different components which make up a wardrobe;

It is very important to figure out which wardrobe components you require and how much of each component you will need. Divide your clothes into each of the sections as follows:
Tip: A good way to figure out how much hanging space you need is to hang the clothes on an existing hanging rod and with a tape measure, measure how much space they take up.
How you plan your wardrobe will depend on the type of wardrobe layout you have to work with. Although wardrobe openings may be different shapes and sizes, all wardrobes usually follow the same basic layout shapes. The most common layout shapes are as follows:

It is important to consider the style of doors that you are planning for your wardrobe, as the doors will have an impact on the design of your wardrobe. For example, two sliding doors will prevent a wardrobe design from having a central drawer box. Alternatively, hinged doors will enable you to choose a drawer box in the centre of the opening (please note that Spacemaker Wardrobes only supply sliding wardrobe doors).
How many people are going to be using the wardrobe (for example, do you need 'His' and 'Hers' sections?). We recommend dividing the wardrobe so that each person has their own section.
