Wardrobe Design Essentials
For 15 years Meredith Ong has advised on wardrobe and walk-in robe design at Poliform – from small apartments to large private homes. She knows that when designing wardrobes and walk-in robes, hanging space is one of the first important considerations, always specifying a depth of 550mm. This covers larger coats, full skirts as well as business shirts and trousers.
To optimise open shelves, they are best kept at eye level, where you can see exactly what’s on them. “They are perfect for T-shirts, jumpers, bulky sweaters and handbags,” Meredith says. “Open shelves are usually also used at the very top of wardrobes for those items that you don’t need on a day to day basis.”
