Creating My Dream Wardrobe From Start to Finish!

Creating My Dream Wardrobe From Start to Finish!

Paid out partnership with Elfa, all phrases are my possess and I only at any time get the job done with models I enjoy. 

Bear in mind I said this was likely to the calendar year I ultimately organise my house? I’ve moved just one phase nearer – my new wardrobe is completed! 

Make it possible for me to paint the scene. My past wardrobe was sandwiched between the girls’ bedrooms on the ground below, it was actually compact and cramped and I had to tip-toe as a result of their rooms at night. I could under no circumstances come across just about anything it only wasn’t useful in any form or variety and actually, a total mess!

The significantly aspect of our bedroom on the top ground appeared like the noticeable alternative for a new one particular. In the earlier, this corner a reading through corner, yoga studio and even once graced the protect of a book as my property business! But I have never ever actually felt it really is been put to terrific use – until now! 

The dilemma was, it can be a somewhat awkward location: sandwiched concerning the stairs and a huge radiator – in addition it has a sloped ceiling. 

Here’s how I reworked it with the aid of international Swedish brand Elfa

The transient

I experienced an complete jumble of merchandise that wanted a household – from maxi attire, jumpsuits, sweaters, denims and health club kit, to hats, tights, jewelry and lingerie! Given that we share a lavatory concerning 5 of us (two of which are young people) I was also eager to include a tiny location to do my hair and make-up. A female can desire!

The obstacles


This mighty radiator was in the way. To be trustworthy, we hadn’t used it all winter season considering that I like to keep the space awesome for my beloved lemon tree (AKA my fourth baby!) although it winters indoors. Eliminating it was a no-brainer, so we known as the plumber in. It left a gaping hole which we plugged and painted over.  


The bannisters to the left of the place were being also an obstacle. In the conclude we decided to build a limited ground-to-ceiling wall to body the facet of the wardrobe. 

Angled ceiling

In all probability 1 of the most popular complications when creating a wardrobe is an uncomfortable sloped ceiling. We employed a builder to insert a made-to-measure triangular shaped wood piece previously mentioned the open-topped wardrobe. It was painted the same color for a seamless search. The greatest issue about this is that we can use the whole top of the space for storage. 

The style and design
The beauty of Elfa is that the technique is completely flexible and can be tailored to healthy your space and your needs. In addition, they present a great online preparing software which permits you to easily design and style and prepare your wardrobe to the actual measurements of your room – appreciate that!  

The system is centred all around a collection of vertical rods from which you ‘click-in’ your choice of shelves, sliding shoe racks, trouser rails, tie racks, rods, drawers, mirrors, hooks etcetera. 

Given that it can be in our bedroom, I required to go for a slightly smarter alternative, picking a couple products from the Décor assortment which brings together operate and adaptability with the design and style and luxury of wood. I put together open up and shut remedies collectively with further options this sort of as a gliding shoe and trouser rack and somewhere to hang shorter and extended garments. 

Doorway collection

I chose Forma doorways in melamine satin white – a a few door sliding resolution. There are innumerable other people to choose from (for all those of you who reside in Sweden, Norway, Denmark or Finland) – or you could go wild and decide for an open answer (I am WAY too messy for that!).

The success

At the time the vertical rods had been set up, almost everything else could just be clicked into spot. Most of my wardrobe is designed up of wire shelves with Décor fascia for a smooth, wise complete. 

I really don’t know how superior you are at folding, but I imagine Marie Kondo would describe mine as distinctly sub-par! If you are the very same, enable me notify you, these click-in wire shelf dividers are a video game changer. Not only do they condense the width of your folded sweaters building them seem additional neat – they also enable you to double up on each individual shelf so you have area for extra clothing. 

A lengthy closet rod signifies I have position for for a longer period and shorter dresses. And I positioned some of my smarter sweaters in containers from the Elfa studio – appreciate that they can be dust totally free but nonetheless obvious. 

More than to the reverse side of my wardrobe and guess what? 

Tadaaa! I have a distinctive area to do my hair and make-up!

So much additional enjoyable to get completely ready without the need of a person else on the loo powering me (not kidding!). 

I included a delicate drawer accessories tray to the higher drawers and then uncomplicated mesh steel dividers to the lessen drawers – all of which assist to hold the drawers neat and organised! 

Don’t mind me whilst I hang out all over my new dream wardrobe choosing out jungle-model clothing and commonly admiring ow neat it is! I have got no excuses now not to use a wardrobe instead of a chair at night (gaaah!) and up my design and style match. Oh, the force! 

I hope you located this wardrobe build appealing / inspiring – primarily if you are looking to organise a home in your house. If so, test out Elfa and come across your closest retailer below – they ship very a lot throughout the world. 

Up coming phase: Allie’s bed room. Again to the preparing resource! 

I seem ahead to sharing the benefits with you in early June!
