Before embarking on making your closet, we scoured through various wardrobes to find the ideal, efficient storage space – and came up with some tips and tricks for you to consider!

1) Hidden Compartment for your valuables

It can be anywhere in your room, or it could be under a bottom drawer, but consider a way to store your valuables. Its your house – but lets face it, it’s Malaysia – robbery happens!

2) Drawers vs shelves

Drawers: Full access to the back of each drawer – more space
Shelves: Probably more practical for bags and larger items. Also, much cheaper – need i say more?

Maybe its a case of mixing and matching instead!

3) Think about compartments

Boys have it easy here, shirts, pants, underwear – done! We girls have to further consider long dresses, compartments for underwear, jewellery… the list goes on and on. Think about your clothes and how to allocate your wardrobe space – speak to an expert and get it laid out properly – its worth the effort!

Also consider a cheap alternative (pictured on the left) for dividing your drawers. IKEA offers it for RM9.90 for 3 pieces!

4) Luggage bags/ winter wear?

Do you travel a lot? Have plenty of winter clothing that need storage? Consider a large bottom shelf to store the items, otherwise, you’ll be struggling to take your luggage from the top shelf each time!

5) Don’t forget about the bags!

Displaying your bags behind a glass case can further protect your bags, while providing aesthetic value to the room. Helps one dream of filling it up too!
