5 suggestions to improve your wardrobe layout

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!

Cool ideas for your kitchen

1) Marble tops – or Quartz stone look-a-likes?

Nothing really beats the beautiful grain of a marble surface. What kills me is that marble surfaces stain easily and chip. Soft stone, unfortunately.

Choosing a quartz top that looks like marble gives you the best of both worlds, with the hard surface of quartz, and the beauty of marble stone!

2)  Wooden surfaces

Put a touch of wood to your kitchen to bring out the earthiness of colours. To further protect the counter, consider adding a glass piece on top of the surface of the wood.

3)  Landing area

If your fridge is standalone, adding a landing area just makes taking things out so much easier!

4)  Hidden spice racks and knife racks

Keeps the counters clean and simplifies cleaning too!
