Where To Find A Place For A Built-In Wardrobe

Fitted furniture cannot be moved and, most likely, can no longer be transported. But with its help, you can save money and space. Let's figure out where you can find a place for a built-in wardrobe and what problems to solve.
Built-in furniture is able to fill any niche, any corner of your apartment - and therefore save space. In addition, with its help you can visually enlarge the room, correct proportions, get rid of ledges and niches.
Let's figure out where you can find a place for a built-in wardrobe and what tasks to solve in this case.

Along the long wall

If you need a particularly spacious wardrobe and the space allows such experiments, you can build it along one of the walls, taking up the entire space - from wall to wall. The advantage of this placement is that even with a gigantic size, the closet will not seem bulky, it will simply “move” the wall and look like part of it.
If the wall is too long and you plan to occupy only part of it with a cabinet, use it to zone the space.

In a niche

Of course, a niche is an ideal place for a built-in wardrobe. With its help, it is possible to use an inconvenient architectural element, leveling it with a wall, and create a convenient functional area.
If a suitable niche is not available, make it yourself (erect drywall partitions). When repairing an apartment, it is worth immediately “reserving” places for built-in wardrobes: for example, it can be a ledge into the next room, hidden with the help of another built-in wardrobe.

In the corner

Sometimes a corner cabinet can be the best solution. The design itself will come out more expensive due to corner modules, but if this allows more efficient use of space - why not?
In this way, you can beat a small niche, a ledge or a free-standing column. In addition, the corner cabinet is also good as a partition with a free layout. True, in this case, you will have to take care of a good back wall. Or attach another cabinet to it.
However, when building a wardrobe into the corner of a room, be careful: a corner structure that is not built into a niche can significantly change the proportions of the room, look unnatural and cumbersome.

Between the windows

If the room has two windows, a tall column cabinet can be built into the space between them. The cabinet will look like an architectural decoration, and not at all bulky. In the interior project in the photo, the built-in wardrobe is continued by wall panels and a system of cornices: together they form an integral composition.

Wardrobe in the attic

In the attic, bedrooms or guest rooms are often arranged. In addition, here you can equip a whole dressing room or office. A sloping ceiling is not at all a problem for built-in furniture. It is only important to carefully consider the design, internal content and shape of the doors.

Under the stairs

Another place for a built-in wardrobe, which many owners of individual houses can find, is under the stairs.
