If your fitted wardrobe has already served you for many years, chances are, it has become cluttered and outdated. Fitted wardrobes are a must for any modern home but if it does not compliment your latest home renovation or new furniture, what do you do with it?

Nowadays, fitted wardrobes are a major highlight and asset to any bedroom. Careful consideration must be done to incorporate their appearance with the interior design of your bedroom. If you want to give you old fitted wardrobes a new lease of  life, here are some practical solutions and makeover tips.

  1. Measure the space correctly.
  • Depth – Measure the depth for your interior and allow a minimum of 620mm for both your interior space and the doors
  • Height – Measure the height of the wardrobe from top to bottom, where the sliding door would fit
  • Width – From left to right, measure across from one side to the other

If you are simply planning to renovate your outdated fitted wardrobe, here are some ideas that you can work on.

  • Repaint your fitted wardrobe – Give it a makeover by choosing a paint colour that will enhance the room’s overall look. Make sure the paint is scentless and won’t peel off easily. Before you start painting, cover the surrounding areas to keep it away from paint drips and splashes.
  • Modernise your door handles – Change your old door handles with stylish and elegant ones that will complement the new paint job. You can purchase it online or visit your nearest sliding wardrobe door store.
  • Open closet – Sometimes, all you need to do is remove the doors to give your fitted wardrobes the facelift it deserves. The downside of this option is you always need to organise your stuff inside the wardrobe but other than that, it is a great way of updating fitted wardrobe and enhance the beauty of your room.
  • Replace the door – If your wardrobe door design is outdated, give it a modern look by replacing it. If you have limited space, you can opt for sliding doors. If not, you can go for hinged doors.
