A wardrobe makes for easy storage of clothes and other items, and can be most effective if you create your wardrobe design. It will allow you to make a maximum use of the closet, as it has been designed specifically with your needs in mind.
You must keep in mind the existing décor of your room, the need for the wardrobe and the maximum use that you can make of it. These parameters enable you to arrive at the right design for you custom built-in wardrobe installation. To start with you must have an area in the room, where this piece of furniture can be easily located. Architects quite often create niches specifically for this purpose, and it this has been done in your room, the decision of the location has already been made. You can otherwise create a separate space, depending on the other furniture in the room and the location of doors and the need for movement in your room. A wardrobe is best located at a point that is away from the main door to the room, and closer to the bathroom.
The space available for the wardrobe may dictate on whether you make the wardrobe one that you can walk in and use. You can also have a free standing wardrobe that does not fit into, or is not adjacent to any wall. Once space for the wardrobe is decided, you need to take its measurements, so that you can start with your design. You need to measure the precise height, width and depth of the area you have designated for the wardrobe. A sloping roof may make the design a little awkward, but it is a problem that can lead to many innovations. You must have sufficient space in the room, for you to open and close the doors of the wardrobe, without too much of inconvenience.
You will have to decide the use you want to make of the wardrobe. This decision will allow you to determine the number of shelves you require, drawers for smaller items, hangers for suits and dresses and mirrors if you think them necessary. Make sure that you are clear about the widths and lengths that your various items of clothing require to be hung up properly inside the wardrobe. You may also have to decide the type of doors which are best suited to your room. Hinged doors require some space to be left out in front of the wardrobe, whereas sliding doors are ideal for rooms that have space restrictions. You may also decide to store some valuables, and personal documents in the wardrobe and your design will have to make space available for their safe storage.

Hardware must be of the right quality that can give you years of service. Custom build wardrobes will cost more than ready-made ones, and your budget can influence your design.
