Before we met with the guys at Dogern, I had an idea of where we might want to have wardrobes so I sent over this floor plan of our room and where the wardrobes could go.
In the end, Kay and I decided that we probably don’t need all that wardrobe space and that it would be better to keep that corner by the bed free of any built in wardrobe. If we really need extra room we can buy a dresser in addition to the main wardrobe, but I told Kay it would be smart to keep it free. If Kay is studying abroad some day, there is a vague possibility that I would want a roommate if I stay in Switzerland by myself, so I thought it is smarter to be able to fit a desk in the bedroom if I need to put on in there.
It just keeps our options open, which I like. Plus I’m having trouble convincing Kay we should put a giant mirror in the hallway to cover up the utility panels, but he seems more open to putting one on the wall by my side of the bed.
Since I know we have to have three sections in the wardrobes, I wrote the wardrobe guy that we would like offers for two options.
The idea of option one is that we give ourselves tons of hanging room utilizing lifting clothes hangers and then have an additional dresser on the other wall so I can store my socks, undies, etc all. This would also be a cheaper option because it has less of those €250-a-piece drawers.
The second option still utilizes raising hangers at the top, but it has a bunch of drawer space at the bottom so that we can fit all of our clothes into the wardrobe, not just the hanging ones.
I’ve asked to have prices for option one and two with and without frame-less doors. Going frame-less would look wonderful, but I’m afraid the cost will be too high, especially for option two with all its drawers. The more we talk about it, the nicer it would be not to have a dresser, but Kay hasn’t seen any with me so I’m a little unsure about that too.
Did you have a lot of indecision trying to figure out your wardrobe situation? Or are you still living with “meh, that works” situation?
