5 top tips for maximising built-in wardrobes

Decided on your favourites? Now, you'll need some tips for making the most of them! Here are five ideas to get you started.

1. Buy hooks

Hooks aren't expensive to buy, but they can go a long way when it comes to creating space. Add a few hooks to your wardrobe's walls and doors, and voila! You have somewhere to hang bags, hats, scarves, jewellery and ties.

2. Get the right hangers

Don't go settling for the cheapest hangers. Make sure that every item in your wardrobe has just the right hanger - a collared shirt has different needs to a skirt! That way, you won't waste any time over bits and pieces of clothing slipping and sliding to the floor.

3. Avoid wasting space

Don't stop till you get to the top. Take a good look at all the space available in your built-in: from the floor to the ceiling. And go about using every single inch. For example, you can build shelves above your clothing racks and install drawers beneath them. Examine corners, too - they can be perfect places for shoe or hat stands.

4. Discover the power of the vacuum seal

Most of us don't wear our entire wardrobe all year round. So, when summer brings its hot, steamy days, pack your winter clothes away, making them as small as possible with vacuum seal bags. They'll squash bulky coats and jumpers flat, giving you more room for your newest purchases!

5. Create a variety of spaces

For ultimate order, create a variety of spaces, so that everything you own has an appropriate home. An easy way to do this is by adding dividers to drawers and shelves.
