Design Guide for a Reach In Wardrobes
Below is an example of a reach- in Wardrobe that is 1800mm wide.
let's say you require one tower module, and the rest of the space you want to use for hanging clothes. if the tower module is 600mm (60cm) wide, then you will have 1200mm leftover. if you have hinged or bi-fold doors on your wardrobe you cloud place the tower in the centre, and have 600mm wide henging either side. you could choose to have to hanging rails on one side of the tower (double hanging)and 1 railon the other side (long hanging). Or if you have double sliding doors on your wardrobe then your tower module will need to be placed off-centre so the drawers make clearance of the door opening.In this case, you may choose to do 300mm wide of hanging on one side of the tower and 900mm of hanging on the other side of the tower.Be sure to measure the door opening size when your sliding doors are stacked open to ensure this will work. We recommend using a shelf tower (without drawers) in small wardrobes with double sliding doors.

Design Guide for Walk-In Wardrobes
For walk-in wardrobes, you will need to measure the walls you are planning on using systems against including their length, depth and height. If you are building a wardrobe cavity, then you can build your wardrobe to suit the system. The bigger the space the more storage you will have. Ensure the walls in your wardrobe have a minimum of 550mm depth, preferably 600mm, to ensure there is sufficient depth to hang clothes.

Consider your needs & requirements
Look at your clothing...do you have a lot of short garments that require hanging? (I.e. shirts, jackets)
Or require more long length hanging? (I.e. pants, dresses, coats)
How many drawers will be sufficient?
Have you got a large collection of shoes that you want to be stored on display?
Look at your current wardrobe set up - what features work well, and what features don't?
Make a note of your 'wish list' before you start shopping, so you choose a system that will work for you.
