Vallee. Wardrobe. November 02nd , 2017.
DIY wardrobes tend to be a good deal cheaper than wardrobes installed by professionals. One of the reasons for this is that most DIY wardrobes are made using lower quality wood than the costlier custom built wardrobes are. The wood will still be good quality, but you may find that storing your rock collection in your DIY built wardrobe is not the wisest idea. You will also save a good deal of money if you can do the installation yourself rather than having to call in a professional. Getting the installation company to get the job done can often be costly, which is why so many DIYers around the country love to do things on their own. If you have the necessary skills to do the project yourself, you should definitely consider it.
The final aspect of wardrobe design is what the wardrobe will be used for: An active childs daily dressing routine? Storage of spare bedding and linens? Or will it stand empty until people visit? Knowing what youre going to put in the wardrobe will guide you in your wardrobe design decisions, and help you figure out whether something stock will work for you or if you need to have something custom-built. Dont discount the power of the wardrobe! It has a tremendous effect on the overall success of your room design. A wardrobe that doesnt match the rest of the room will stick out like a sore thumb and look awful. And a wardrobe that doesnt function well is a waste of valuable space - not to mention priceless storage. When tackling a wardrobe problem, take your time and work through these three steps thoughtfully to ensure you make the right choices.
The first type of custom design wardrobe is called "bespoke". Bespoke design is a design that you and a wardrobe designer come up with together, and which is constructed by a local craftsman or workshop specifically for you. You are able to set the design, style, colors, and pattern of your wardrobe, and you are even able to select the wood that you want to use. Once you and your designer have agreed on a design for your wardrobe, the plans are sent off to a local craftsman to be made according to your request. If you want a wardrobe that will be according to very specific plans and dimensions, you may find that a bespoke design is exactly what you are looking for.
There are no wrong answers to the question of what you want your wardrobe to look like. Traditional, modern, wood stain or pink - its up to you and the rest of the room. You can find a wardrobe in just about any style you might desire or have one custom-built. The key is to know what you want. Dont just pick something out of a catalogue based on price - take your time and think about what the rest of the furniture looks like, what colours will be on the walls, and what pleases your eye. Wardrobe design begins with the space the wardrobe will stand in. Wardrobes are not one-size-fits-all, and if your wardrobe is too big for the space you will know it every single time you step into the room (possibly because you will have to climb over something to get in there). Measure the room carefully and plot out where everything will be so you know where the wardrobe will stand, and thus the exact dimensions you have to work with. This also will inform your choice of sliding doors or swinging doors - do you have space for doors that swing open outward without hitting the bed?
For those in the film industry, wardrobe refers to the costume or outfit an actor, performer or extra wears while on a TV or movie set. These outfits can be everyday clothing to stock costumes to those costumes made from scratch. When an actor auditions for a role they will fill out and complete a casting form with their personal information, body sizes and measurements. Upon the actor booking the role, this information is then sent to the wardrobe office/department and/or a phone call is made immediately to the actor to review or collect his/her particulars including measurements. The actor must have this information readily available even if it has been submitted at the audition/callback. A measurement sheet is needed by all actors or those going out for principal auditions.
