When it comes to installing a fitted wardrobe in your bedroom you will be primarily seeking to add precious storage space to your home. Storage is one of the mosst common requirements in any home and the bedroom is where you're going to be keeping the most important storage items that you own, your clothes.

This leads us to the two most important factors that have to be met when designing your new fitted wardrobe. It has to have enough space to meet all of your storage needs, in other words, it's got to house all of your clothes comfortably, and it's got to look good.

Getting one of these two requirements right is a fail mark. If you have the most lovely looking wardrobe installed into your bedroom that matches the room to perfection, yet it barely holds half of your clothes, you're not going to be satisfied. Similarly, if your wardrobe easily holds clothes in perfect order, yet you can barely stand to enter your bedroom because the wardrobe looks so atrocious you are going to be just as unsatisfied.

This is where the important part of buying a fitted wardrobe is the most evident. You must pour equal time into the design of the interior features of your wardrobe as you do deciding on how the wardrobe is going to look. Décor is an extremely important aspect of the bedroom and the new wardrobe should blend in nicely with the rest of the room. It has to complement the other furnishings in the room.

On the inside, your wardrobe should be designed so that it maximizes every square inch available to you. It is very difficult to expand a fitted wardrobe once it has been installed, so the challenge lies in the layout of the rods, shelves, hangers and drawers. If necessary you may like to hire a wardrobe designer to come in and help you with the layout.

Essentially, what you'll need to do is work out exactly how many clothes you have that requires hanging, how much space you will need for shoes and how much shelving space you'll need. By identifying clearly what your requirements are you will be more likely to successfully cater for everything and hopefully even have a little bit left over to cater for expansion.

This will also be a good time to cull the clothes that you haven't worn for a long time and are unlikely to wear again. That's another good way to create more space in your wardrobe.

You can't just meet one wardrobe requirement, it's got to satisfy all your needs. It's worth taking some extra time while making your decision and even get help if you truly can't work out how you're going to make it all fit.
