Wardrobe dressing

A WARDROBE is an essential piece of furniture in any home, and necessary for the storage of clothes, shoes and personal effects.

If you are living in your property, you’ll probably need more space than if it’s used for holiday lets or rentals. But even people on holiday want to hang their clothes up and put things away out of sight, rather than living out of a suitcase!

The wardrobe is one of the biggest pieces of furniture in your home, and, as such, is worthy of some consideration as to how it fits into your design, or how it looks.

Free-standing wardrobes can be situated anywhere in the room, and this may depend on the shape of the area and the amount of space you have available. You can try to make them blend in by using a neutral colour to match the wall, or make a statement by dressing them up a bit.

If you’ve inherited a standard MDF wardrobe that has no style at all, don’t despair. With very little effort, you can transform it into something more interesting. There are specialist paints that can be used on MDF or melamine furniture to transform them. And, by changing the handles to something more glamourous, and using stencils or stickers, your wardrobe can become a thing of beauty, in keeping with the rest of your interior design.

Fitted wardrobes are popular in Tenerife because a lot of properties, particularly those built in recent years, have smaller rooms. They can be situated in alcoves, to make the most of all the available space.

Wall-to-wall wardrobes are really nothing more than a set of doors across the room, creating a space, between them and the rear wall, to use for storage. You can then use carcass furniture, which is cheap because it has a rough finish, to provide you with whatever type of storage solutions you need, such as drawers, rails, shelves etc.

Fitted wardrobes don’t need to be boring. If you hate the colour or design of the doors, eg they are too dark for your liking, you can replace them, or have them sprayed to give a different impression.

You can also use mirrored panels to create an effect, with the added advantage that they will reflect light around the room and make it appear larger. If you are really short of space, the mirrors can also be useful for doing make-up and styling hair.

The best space-saving solution of all is a row of fitted wardrobes with sliding doors. Because the doors slide along tracks fitted on the floor, you don’t lose any space as you would if the doors opened outwards.
