Filling the wardrobe

Layout options

The main advantage of the wardrobe over the usual wardrobe is the effective use of each centimeter of space allocated from floor to ceiling. The capacity of the model is determined by the rational distribution of the internal space.

There are a lot of planning options, but first you need to decide in which room the wardrobe should be operated. In different rooms, the location of the interiors of cabinets will be different.

The inner space of the wardrobe should be divided into three parts: upper, lower and middle. On the upper shelves of the wardrobe, seasonal items of clothing, shoes and other wardrobe items that are not very convenient to get are usually stored. For coats and jackets stored on top of hangers, a pantograph equipment will be convenient.

The distribution of the middle part of the space is based on the fact that most of the most necessary items of clothing today and now will be stored here, so this part of the closet is the most convenient.Usually the average space is engaged in barbells for hanging casual clothes.

At the bottom of the closet can be stored shoes, items of clothing and home care, for example, ironing board, iron, vacuum cleaner.

From the depth of the wardrobe will depend on the location of the rods. If the cabinet is deep, the bars will be located parallel to the door. If the cabinet is shallow, then the bars will have a perpendicular to the door arrangement.

The dimensions of the wardrobe for the hallway will depend on the size of the room. If the dimensions of the hallway allow, it is better to choose a roomy corner model. The internal content of such a non-standard cabinet should be planned for storage of outer clothing, shoes, bags and umbrellas.

In the closet you will need to think about the convenience of getting things out of the corner. Ideal is the option when the angular space will be occupied by bars for hangers. In order not to install a partition wall at the very corner, it will be sufficient for strength to install a support post with rods attached to it at the desired height.

The rest of the space in the middle part can be left for bags, umbrellas and hats, not forgetting to place shelves for footwear, keys and other trifles closer to the exit.On the side walls will be convenient placement of hooks for bags. With a standard cabinet depth of 600 mm, the usable shelf space is 500 mm.

Filling a typical two-door wardrobe with dimensions of 1600 × 2400 × 600 mm for the hallway of a small apartment is the simplest and most economical option. In one half of the cabinet there will be several sliding shelves and a bristle stool for compact storage, in the other - an office for outerwear.

In the cramped space of the hall of the apartment- "Khrushchev" it is necessary to provide that retractable internal shelves do not interfere with the correct closing of the cabinet doors. The compartment for placing a rather long outerwear must be made in height not less than 1500 mm.

Cabinet dimensions in a narrow hallway will be guided by the size of the niche or the smallest wall. The depth of the shelves of the cabinet will not be standard and will be no more than 400 - 450 mm, respectively, the crossbeam for outerwear will be perpendicular. On the crossbar, of course, a lot of clothes will not fit, but for a single person or family without children this space will be enough.

It is important that all drawers, crossbars and hooks are strong and withstand the weight of stored items.

Filling the inner space of the closet for the bedroom will be different from the wardrobe device for the hallway. This wardrobe is not designed for outdoor clothing and shoes. Optimal filling in such models of cabinets provides a large number of shelves for storing bedding, home clothes, socks and underwear.

For the bedroom, it is best to design a corner or built-in wardrobe, which occupies the entire wall space.

The dimensions of the wardrobe 1800 × 2400 × 600 and more, up to two meters in length, suggest the use of three doors. Such a cabinet is called a three-section. For organizing the internal filling, the cabinet length of 2000 mm is conveniently divided into sections of approximately 600 mm each, taking into account the thickness of the internal partitions. Even with a thickness of 14 mm, shelves of such a width of chipboard will not sag.

The filling of the cabinet 2.3 to 2.7 meters can be divided into three sections, moreover, there will be not three doors, but four. In the closet of 3 meters or more sections will be four. There will be plenty of shelves in such large cabinets; drawers and multi-level mesh baskets can be added at the bottom to increase the rigidity of the structure.

It is not always convenient to have drawers on the floor itself. In order not to bend down the boxes can be raised to the level of the thigh. With this arrangement, the shelves lintels under the drawers should be designed with increased strength. The dimensions of the mezzanine shelves do not always coincide with the dimensions of the sections, maybe one above the two sections. It is important to calculate the thickness so that the load of the regiment is not deformed.

For a family with a toddler, a practical arrangement of furniture in the bedroom will be very convenient, suggesting the presence of a closet with a supply of diapers, next to the changing chest, in which drawers rattles and baby care products are laid out.

Since things that are not fit in other rooms are stored in the closet, the filling can be very different. For example, you can provide for the placement of a folding ironing board.

If other items of furniture are unwilling or impossible to be in a small bedroom, it is possible to provide in the closet space a dressing table hiding behind a sliding door. There are also options for accommodating radio and television equipment behind sliding doors.

If desired, you can combine several functional zones in the same room, choosing a model of the cabinet with a built-in full-fledged workplace, that is, to get a combination of clothing storage with a secretary.

Realizing the sketch of the wardrobe in the children's bedroom, it should be remembered that the internal accessories, handles and accessories must be durable and extremely safe. The interior of the children's wardrobe should be different from the adult. While the child is small, it is necessary that all his things and toys should be concentrated on the shelves of the lower zone. The older child will eventually use the upper shelves.

The bar for hanging clothes on hangers in the children's closet should be located at a height of no more than 80 cm, taking into account the change in the height of the child, it is good to envisage the possibility of adjusting the height of the bar.

In order to eliminate clutter with extra furniture, you can equip a wardrobe with a built-in computer desk and shelves for storing textbooks and notebooks in the children's bedroom.

Ties, belts, belts, jewelry items can be stored hanging on special hangers or in shallow drawers with telescopic sliding mechanisms and cells laid out using wooden dividers.

Internal design and examples

The radial model of the wardrobe implements the ideas of a successful combination of aesthetic appearance with the design of the internal content. The exclusivity of such a cabinet is underlined by the unusual curvilinear structure of the doors. To ensure maximum filling of the cabinet, the designers offer a special shelf geometry that follows the convex, concave or undulating shape of the doors.

This solution is very important when ordering a closet for a family with a lot of outerwear.With a deviation from the standard width of 1200 mm, the manufacturer advises to install a perpendicular support inside the compartment in order to avoid deformation of the rod.
