FAQ

Q. How can I make my room look larger?

Mirror doors can make a room appear larger, they can also reflect light which can assist in giving your room additional dimension.

Rooms with high ceilings can appear smaller if the wardrobe goes right to the ceiling. To prevent the room becoming overpowered by the wardrobe and becoming closed in, consider stopping short of the ceiling.

Colour choice influence the apparent size of the room, generally darker and more intense colours make a room feel smaller. White, off white and pastel colours can make a room appear larger.

Q. Are there standard sized wardrobes?

No. All wardrobes are custom made to best provide for your needs.

Q. What is the maximum size of a wardrobe door?

A general guideline, to maximum door size is given below. There are a number of exceptions to this guideline, depending on materials used, structural strength, purpose of use and other engineering considerations.

Generally, each sliding door is a maximum of 1200mm wide and 2400mm high. If a wardrobe is 2400mm wide, it could have two or three sliding doors.

Q. What is the best design for the inside of my wardrobe?

Each wardrobe will be designed to your individual needs after assessing your needs. Some factors to consider are:

  • How much short and long hanging to you need. What is the length of your longest item to hang? Do you need large amounts of long hanging or will ¾ length hanging suit your needs.
  • Some people prefer to hang and other like drawers and shelves. Most like a combination of the hanging and drawers and shelves. Baskets are another option to drawers.
  • Do you want to store shoes, if so, how many pairs.
  • Is non clothing storage required in your wardrobe? Filing cabinet, ironing boards, jewellery, televisions, children’s toys, books, security safe, blankets, linen, suitcases etc.
  • Ties, scarves, & belt storage.
  • Will the use of the wardrobe change over time? E.g. Current use is a study but will be converted to a bedroom at a later time. Another example is a child’s wardrobe which will have changing usage requirements as the child matures.

There is no easy answer to this question, our experienced designers can help you with the solution.

Q. What is the best design for children’s wardrobes?   

Flexibility is the key. Children have changing needs as they grow. Baby clothes need little hanging space and lots of shelves and drawers. As they get older they will need short hanging space and toy storage. During adolescence toys will get replaced by school books and there may be a need for longer hanging. A well thought out combination of adjustable and removable shelves with removable hang rods is generally the solution. Our trained designed consultants can assist with your design.

Children can sometimes be rough on wardrobes, & melamine edging is liable to chip when hard objects are thrown into the wardrobe. We use 2mm thick ABS edging on the leading edges of our shelves, ABS edging looks good and is far more durable than a standard melamine edge strip.

Q. I have a wardrobe with one shelf and one hanging rod, can it be made more useful? 

Yes. There are a number of design alternatives that can include double hanging, long hanging drawers, shelves and baskets. Often removing your existing shelf and installing a new shelf higher in the robe will increase your usable space. There are special options to make the top section of your wardrobe usable if you have a low bulkhead.

Q. We have tall ceilings what are my options?

We can fit a lid to the track height (up to 2700mm high), or depending on ceiling height fit a fascia between the top track and the ceiling.
If you have an older home, ornate plaster cornices could be one of its most valuable features. Here our consultants suggest that the wardrobe stops short of the cornice. This way there is no interruption to the line and beauty of the plasterwork.

Our measure and quotes are free & no obligation. We travel anywhere in the Adelaide Metroplolitan Area, anywhere from the Barossa Valley to Mt Barker to Victor Harbour.

Q. Do your robes have a backing?

No. We use your back and side walls as  the wardrobe backing.
