Wardrobe design varies according to one’s own personal needs and preferences. The same is the
case with designing your child’s first wardrobe. There are certain things that need to be kept in
mind during this process. This would help you solve a lot of your problems. Your child’s
wardrobe is not just a wardrobe, it’s your secret weapon in keeping their entire room organized.
A Functional Wardrobe Design
When designing your child’s first wardrobe, don’t just focus on how it looks but also on its
functionality. You need to make sure that it is safe for them to use in every way. They will try to
access every part of it, so each edge needs to be smoothed out. They need to be functional in
terms of them being able to store not just the clothes, but also their toys, art supplies, and games,
etc. Above this, it needs to be designed in such a way that it caters to your child’s physical
changes such as their height.
Gender Neutral and Fun
It is best to use gender-neutral colors. Try not to go with the common “blue for boys” and “pink
for girls’ mindset. Your child will grow up and their color preferences will change. This is why
it’s recommended to go for colors that are fun and neutral in nature. Our personal
recommendation would be to go for lime green, peach, mustard, grey, or a nice fun yellow (it
never goes wrong).
To make their bedroom experience more fun, add another functionality to their wardrobe which
is to use a chalk finish for it. A chalk finish wardrobe is easier to clean. They can also draw on it
and get away with it. A win-win situation!
Easy-to-Reach Drawer Add Ons
Adding these to your child’s wardrobe will help increase its storage capacity. The actual trick is
to add them towards the bottom. These drawers can be added to already fitted wardrobes but
make sure there is enough room at the bottom for them to fit. The purpose of putting it there is
the ease of access for toddlers. They can have direct access to their toys this way. The bonus point
here is that these drawers can be used by them in the long run too. They can be repurposed to
keep extra books, video games, socks, shoes, and anything else. You just name it!
Low Height Shelves
Adding low height shelves will enable accessibility and this is where you can keep your child’s
pull-out storage boxes. Pull-out storage boxes are very handy in themselves. So here, once again,
you’re making room for more space, and making sure everything is kept organized and at an
accessible distance from your child’s hands. Play around with colors for each shelve section.
Make them seem fun and lively!
Wardrobes are absolutely essential for one’s room, but they do not need to be dull and boring.
Colors always add an extra element to anything but at the same time, it’s about how functional and
useful you can make one thing. These tips and tricks are your best friend in helping you with
your child’s wardrobe design process.
