Building a Bedroom Addition to Your Home? Why You Should Include a Built-in Wardrobe

by Felecia Banks

If you're adding a bedroom to your home, and you've decided to forego the built-in wardrobe, you need to rethink that decision. You might think that a built-in wardrobe is a luxury, rather than a necessity, but that's not the case. In fact, a built-in wardrobe can provide you with benefits you might not have considered. Before you decide to go without the built-in wardrobe, consider the benefits described below. 

They Make Better Use of Space

If you plan to use a portable wardrobe for your clothing once your new room is complete, you should think about the way you're using your space. Portable wardrobes take up additional space that could be put to better use. 

Not only that, but because they don't fit flush with the wall, you're at an increased risk for fall accidents and stubbed toes. That's where a built-in wardrobe comes into the picture. Your built-in wardrobe will be built right into the wall, which means it won't stick out into the room. 

They Reduce Cleaning Time

If you want to make your new bedroom easier to clean, and you also want to reduce allergens in the room, it's time to include a built-in wardrobe in the plans. You might not realise it, but portable wardrobes increase the time you need to spend on cleaning. They also increase the allergens in your room. 

First, you'll spend more time cleaning because you'll need to move the portable wardrobe out of the way. Second, they'll increase the allergens because dust can collect under the, and around, the wardrobe. Reduce cleaning time, and the allergens by including a built-in wardrobe in your new bedroom plans. 

They Provide Additional Storage

If you plan to use your wardrobe for items other than clothing, don't use a portable unit in your new bedroom. Portable wardrobes are designed specifically for clothing, which means they might not be able to withstand the added weight of boxes. One of the benefits of built-in wardrobes is that you can use the space for additional storage. That allows you to make the most of the wardrobe space you have available to you. 

They Add Value to Your Home

Finally, if you have plans to sell your home in the future, be sure to include a built-in wardrobe in your new bedroom addition. You might not know this, but adding a built-in wardrobe to the bedroom addition can add to the value of your home.


About Me

Upgrading our curtains

We have just bought a new house, and the guy who lived here before us smoked in the house for close to 40 years. The first thing I knew we had to change as soon as we moved in was the curtains, because I can't bear the smell of stale smoke. I looked around at a few different options and settled on some beautiful cream curtains with a delicate pattern and a blackout backing so that the dawn doesn't wake me each morning. This blog explains some different stylish options for window coverings for your home, including curtains and blinds.
