Built-In Cupboards – Advantages
Maximises your Space
If you have some weird angles in your bedroom (such as sloping ceilings or uneven walls).
These wardrobes can actually hide them.
This is because they are designed to fit a specific area, which also allows you to make full use of the available space.
The cupboards can also be designed to run from floor to ceiling for maximum storage space.
Easier to Clean
Believe it or not, a built in wardrobe actually makes it easier for you to clean your bedroom!
Freestanding cupboards are unlikely to be a perfect fit for the space, so you are bound to come across unwanted gaps on the top or sides.
Gaps are known for attracting all manner of dust and they can be difficult to reach, which is problematic for cleaning.
Limitless Design Options
As these wardrobes are constructed according to your specifications, you have the ability to completely customise it.
Choose from a wide variety of materials and colours, not to mention storage solutions that can be fitted to the inside.
This can also make organising your clothing a far less painful process, as there is a place for everything.
Not very Flexible
If you are the kind of person that likes to rearrange your bedroom from time to time, you will find that these wardrobes aren’t very flexible.
Once they’ve been installed, they’re not going anywhere without a demolition crew!
If you ensure that you have chosen the most appropriate spot for the cupboards, however, this shouldn’t be a problem.
Long Lead Times
As these wardrobes are built according to your exact specifications.
You may have to wait a few weeks (or even a few months) until it’s ready for installation.
This will often depend on the complexity of your design and how busy the company is.
If you are looking for an instant solution, you will be better off investing in a freestanding cupboard.
It almost goes without saying that these wardrobes are going to represent a far larger financial investment than a freestanding one.
It is important, however, to remember that you are receiving a custom and high quality cupboard that will stand the test of time.
Whilst the initial outlays might be a little high, you are sure to save in the long run.
As you can see, there are a number of pros and cons associated with built in wardrobes.
This is why determining whether such a cupboard is right for your bedrooms.
Or not is a completely personal decision – what is right for one home is rarely right for another.
If you run into any problems in making a decision or in designing your perfect wardrobe.
Ensure that you speak with a professional cabinetmaker – they will be able to offer assistance.
