Features and Benefits
In everyday life, each person needs different wardrobe items that need to be stored somewhere. To organize the storage of things in dwellings, dressing rooms are equipped, in which practical and functional systems for storing clothes and shoes, linen and bags are used. Today, the simplest and most affordable storage method is the presence of a shelving system in the wardrobe.
The shelving system is an ergonomic design that does not take up much space, allowing you to store a huge amount of things and keep them in order. Correctly selected furniture models allow rational use of the entire space from floor to ceiling. The open design of the shelving allows you to quickly see and take the item you need. Shelving fits perfectly into very small dressing rooms, where there is no room for opening cabinet doors or pulling out bulky drawers.
For the rational use of space, some general recommendations must be followed. The upper shelves of the shelving structures can be used for storing seasonal items, the lower ones can be used for storing shoes. In the middle space, it is necessary to provide racks with barbells for clothes hangers. The side compartments should have shelves for small items. Shelving parts are usually made of wood, metal or plastic. Shelving structures made of aluminum are recommended as the most mobile, reliable and durable.
There are many options for shelving systems. The type of shelving design is usually selected based on the overall dimensions of the room allocated for the wardrobe. If there is a possibility of arranging a large dressing room with separate racks for clothes and shoes, it is better to choose wooden furniture of classic design. Such shelving structures are both stationary and mobile. If the dressing room has a very small space inside, then racks placed on the walls are optimal.
In a room for storing clothes, shoes and linen, shelving structures are often built-in. The built-in system involves fixing the entire structure to the walls, ceiling and floor. In this case, the back wall may not be used. The constructive solution for a shelving dressing room can be quite simple. Laminate shelves for folded clothes or metal mesh for shoes are attached to a supporting frame made of perforated profiles. Such a wardrobe system is quite capable of assembling with your own hands.
One-piece models of conservative-shaped shelving, installed in the entire wall, allow you to place a large number of shoes in the dressing room. These racks are made up of cells provided for each pair of shoes. Frames made entirely of wood look soundly.
The universal collapsible structure of the rack can be quickly mounted at home, perfectly solving the problem of storing a large amount of clothes and shoes in the limited space of a city apartment. Such a rack structure has a set of vertical racks of different heights and horizontal shelves of different sizes.
Racks are usually equipped with adjustable feet, allowing you to mount the rack on uneven floors. The shelves are fixed in the racks using special holders and are equipped with rear walls that prevent things from tipping over. To install the shelves, the structure also uses bolt-free connections, which allow the shelves to be fastened in the hooks. Depending on the desire, the racks can be easily mounted upwards, in a line and in the form of multilevel steps.
The use of modular shelving is the most convenient and rational way of organizing home storage of wardrobe items. Modular racks have certain advantages over other types:
- at the request of the owner, the shelving modules are easily and quickly transformed, allowing you to create many convenient options;
- modules are freely swapped and installed in another place, it is easy to take care of them;
- when the need arises, new ones can be easily added to existing modules.
Roll-out models of shelving can be ideal for narrow dressing rooms. Such racks can be high in the form of slide-out display cases and low, similar to pull-out dressers. The rack has the ability to attach the necessary additional modules. Roll-out racks made of aluminum are recommended for long-term use.
Roll-out structures can be successfully used for shoes. They allow you to neatly arrange shoes in several rows and quickly find the right pair. Constructions of roll-out shoe sections can be equipped with benches, sitting on which, it is easy to try on.
Large firms engaged in the manufacture and sale of cabinet furniture offer ready-made shelving sets of various designs and functionality for dressing rooms of various sizes. Wardrobe racks can also be made to order, having previously removed the dimensions of the room. Any consumer can independently think over the design and choose pieces of furniture for the dressing room, taking into account the activity, lifestyle of all family members.
How to choose the right one
When choosing a shelving system for storing things for your home, you need to decide on the variety and price. Pay attention to the quality of the materials used, connections, the possibility of replacing and supplementing elements, the presence of protective parts on the legs of the furniture.
For the production of shelving shelves, environmentally friendly and durable MDF boards can be used. The surface is covered with PVC foil, veneer. Such materials are resistant to mechanical stress and changes in humidity in dressing rooms.
Furniture for a wardrobe made of metal structures is universal and has a laconic design. Wire shelves and nets can be set to any height if required. It is good to operate such furniture in rooms with fluctuating air humidity. Laundry and other clothes stored on such shelves are better ventilated and retain a fresh smell for longer.
Shelves made of natural wood can be of both strict and sophisticated design, using stylish fittings and various options for wooden decor: cornices, plinths, pilasters. In the manufacture of luxury sets of furniture for wardrobe rooms, panels made of oak, ash, alder and other valuable species of wood are widely used.
Interesting interior solutions
Recently, by analogy with the design of the kitchen space, in their design projects, developers have turned to the creation of interesting island options for arranging furniture in the dressing room space.
Previously, in the shelving wardrobes, the presence of an ottoman or a small soft sofa was quite sufficient as an island. Today, in the central point of the space, along with the pouf, it is proposed to use a whole system for storing accessories, jewelry and cosmetics.
An island in small dressing rooms can be a miniature chest of drawers on which you can put bags, hat boxes, jewelry boxes. In dressing rooms with a large amount of free space, the center of the composition can be a rack with glass shelves or a chest of drawers with drawers for small wardrobe items and a showcase with laid out decorations.
Today, interior designers propose to make two dressing rooms in a large house or apartment at once - for a woman and for a man. Moreover, the dressing room of the mistress of the house is located next to the bedroom, and the men's dressing room is located near the study. In the design of men's wardrobes, in contrast to women's, the main emphasis is on the functionality of shelving structures. The masculine character of the owner is emphasized by the strict decor of the room, using natural wood, leather and chrome fittings.
