Some of us often feel that there is never enough space in our sliding wardrobes in Northern Ireland. This can be extremely discouraging. Your bedroom or dressing room should be a calming place that houses all of your belongings, and when your space feels too small or chaotic, the relaxing atmosphere you are trying to create is disrupted. 

As experts in sliding wardrobe design, our team at Enhance Sliding Wardrobes in Northern Ireland have the knowledge and expertise to help you maximise your wardrobe’s storage space. We have therefore compiled a list of our top tips to help you get started: 

1. Fold where you can in your sliding wardrobe in Northern Ireland

A simple, yet effective way to maximise the storage space in your wardrobe is to fold. This might seem silly, but folding your clothes correctly is extremely important when trying to fit everything into your wardrobe. When you fold your long-sleeve tops or jumpers correctly, you will be surprised at how little space they actually take up. 

If you are struggling to fit particular items into your sliding wardrobe, get creative! There are many wardrobe storage solutions available out there (sorting cubes etc) that are extremely beneficial for your sliding wardrobes in Northern Ireland. 

2. Make use of the vertical space in your sliding wardrobe

Sliding wardrobes are a storage lover’s dream because of their vertical space. The only catch is that you need to know how to use this space properly – that’s where we come in! 

There are many types of hangers out there that can be used to fit in more clothes than you can with a traditional hanger. This way, you can hang more than one garment on each hanger! As well as this, consider what other items can be hung up in your wardrobe. You can hang up handbags and additional accessories. 

3. Make the most of your sliding wardrobe’s floor space

Your sliding wardrobe doesn’t have to be all about the hanging space. Remember there is an entire floor space that can be used cleverly in your wardrobe. The floor space of your sliding wardrobe can be maximised by placing drawers, trays or boxes to store additional garments. This might include shoes, scarves, or any other items that can be placed down there. 

4. Use lighting cleverly to make your wardrobe appear bigger

Lighting is often used strategically in interior design to enhance a space. You can make it appear bigger and brighter with the careful placement of lighting. Our team at Enhance Sliding Wardrobe have 3 key tips to enhance the lighting of your sliding wardrobe in Northern Ireland. Who knows, you might notice how much space you have!

  1. Paint your sliding wardrobe a light colour.  
  2. Add lights. By illuminating your sliding wardrobe, you will be able to see everything you own. 
  3. Use mirrors. By adding mirrors to your sliding wardrobe, you can make it appear bigger. This is particularly beneficial in a dressing room or walk-in wardrobe to enhance the perception of your wardrobe’s size. 

5. Keep all-season clothes on display and rotate!

We don’t wear absolutely everything we own year-round. Therefore, it is not necessary to have every garment you own on display all year. That’s why we recommend a rotation system in your wardrobe. 

A rotation system is a simple solution to your wardrobe space. Anything you wear or use throughout every season should be kept on display. Then, season-specific pieces should be rotated. When you are not wearing your seasonal clothes, store them elsewhere. This will enhance the usability of your sliding wardrobe, and make it a nicer space to go into every morning. 

As well as this, it is important to maintain your wardrobe correctly. Whilst you rotate your season clothing, you should also keep track of your overall wardrobe inventory. We recommend having a ‘rule’, for example if you haven’t worn it in a year, throw it out! 

6. Make use of the top shelf of your sliding wardrobes in Northern Ireland

Similarly to the floor of your sliding wardrobe in Northern Ireland, the top shelf is often forgotten. As it is above our eye level, we often forget about the extra space that is created above the main rail in our sliding wardrobes.

The top shelf can be used for a variety of items, such as handbags. We also encourage our customers to invest in storage boxes, trays or drawers. This creates a more organised aesthetic within your wardrobe space – and you will also find everything much more easily when you know where it is!
