A messy wardrobe can be overwhelming.
Nothing is more frustrating than searching through each corner to find a matching bag or have things go completely missing. Piles of clothes only grow larger to the point where it becomes almost impossible to find the right outfit. A wardrobe remodel can easily address these issues and bring a smile to your face as you get ready in the morning.
The key to a successful renovation project lies in effective planning. Here we look at the steps involved to completely transform your wardrobe.
1. Determine Your Wardrobe Needs
Wardrobe requirements are different for everyone. The first step to planning a wardrobe remodel is to turn your attention to what your needs are.
This step is absolutely crucial to create an area that reflects your lifestyle. Wardrobe layouts for men typically include tie and belt racks along with shelves for shoes while women may need specific compartments for jewelry and ample vertical space for dresses. Layouts should also take future needs into consideration such as if a significant other will be sharing the space.
Putting some thought now into what your wardrobe requirements are will make the design process go more smoothly.
2. Decide on a Budget
How much are you willing to spend?
Your budget has a large impact on your wardrobe remodel. There are a number of DIY solutions available that can cost several hundred dollars or more. But if you are looking for a complete renovation with higher end materials, you can expect to spend at least a few thousand dollars.
If you plan to stay in your home for the long term, then consider paying for a custom solution. Professional installations are built according to your exact specifications right down to the style and finish. And you get far better value since the wardrobe is built to your needs.
3. Schedule a Consultation
If you decide to go with a custom wardrobe solution, the next step is to arrange a consultation. This involves speaking with a professional to discuss your requirements in more detail. You will be asked several questions about the layout, style, and finish that you want. The consultation is a great time to share any ideas you might have.
Professional installations are completely custom so measurements of your wardrobe will be taken to have the cabinets fabricated. Be sure to carefully review everything again as it will be difficult to make any changes once the details have been finalised.
4. Prepare for Installation
It can take several weeks or longer to have your new cabinets fabricated depending on the style and finish you choose. In the meantime, prepare your wardrobe for installation by removing all your clothes and cleaning everything out. This is a great time to sell or donate any unused clothes. Once the cabinets are finished and installed, you can finally start moving your clothes and accessories into your new wardrobe.
