  • 3 Tips to Get Your Wardrobe Winter-Ready


    It is that time of the year where we take our winter gear our of storage and place in the accessible areas of our wardrobe. Although the task is tedious, the chill in the air calls for a refreshing change within the wardrobe, which can be completed with a few easy tasks. The tips are given below.

    Store the Summer Clothes: If there is limited space, place the summer-only or off-season items in the loft or an unused shelf in the wardrobe. Typically the top shelf is the least-used shelf within a wardrobe. Therefore, it is best to place the off-season items there so they are out of the way, yet still accessible when it is time to change the season again. If the wardrobe has loft storage above the main wardrobe area, place the off-season items over there so they are out of the way for the winter months.

    Fold vs. Hanging: Another organizational tactic is to decipher which items should be folded and which should be hung. Large bulky sweaters and sweat shirts can take extensive space if placed on hangers, and usually lose their shape. The best way to store them is by folding them and placing them on shelves or in drawers. When it comes to organizing shelves within a wardrobe, the heavier stacks or piles should be placed on the lower shelves, while the lighter clothing items should be placed on the higher shelves. However, items such as coats are best stored by hanging them. They can be hung in the existing wardrobe or in a different wardrobe, depending on the availability of space.

    Filtering through Hangers: To maximize space in the closet, consider space-saving hangers to place all of the necessary items. Winter clothing is much heavier and thicker, and therefore takes up more space. Therefore, if space is a constraint, then use the space-saving hangers for your necessary items.

  • Vastu Shastra Tips for your Wardrobe


    The wardrobe is one of the largest pieces of furniture within the bedroom. Ensuring its placement can impact the vibes or energy within a room. Applying Vastu Shastra to the home is believed to bring positive and peaceful energy within a space. In a previous blog, we have mentioned the ideal layout for the kitchen in accordance to Vastu Shastra, along with a blog post for the most suitable colors.   For the bedroom, different Vastu Shastra rules apply. Below, are some Vastu Shastra Tips for placing the Wardrobe within the bedroom.

     

    • Wardrobe Location: For starters, the ideal placement of a wardrobe within the bedroom is in the southwest direction of the room. An alternative direction for the wardrobe is the northwest. Ideally, the wardrobe shutters should open towards the east or south to be used as a buffer against the hot evening sun.

    • Wardrobe Appearance: The colors of the wardrobe should be subtle and soft. Neutral tones such as white, grey, or beige are ideal color options for any wardrobe. They follow the Vastu Shastra rules, and they can be placed with any bedroom color scheme. Vastu Shastra also states that a bedroom wardrobe should be constructed from wood or iron. At ModSpace.in we use wood in making our wardrobes. Using mirrors as a part of the wardrobe shutters is discouraged. It is believed that mirrors in the bedroom or facing the bed lead to arguments within the home.

    • Wardrobe Storage: Vastu Shastra  states that valuables and cash that are stored inside of the wardrobe should be kept on the west or the south side, in a wardrobe that is standing on a leveled floor. Ideally, a drawer or safety locker should be dedicated to those valuables to ensure safe storage.

  • 4 Things to Know about Custom-Made Cabinetry


    Anything custom-made is a blessing. In a custom design, everything is made exclusively to you, catering to your taste and your home. In the long run, a custom solution gives a seamless design, ultimately adding value to your home space. They are made-to-measure and become a real asset within the home. At ModSpace.in, we offer custom-made cabinetry in all forms for the home: kitchens, wardrobes, entertainment units, and vanities. However, before diving into the furniture, below are 4 tips to know about getting custom furniture within the home.

     

    Ask the Right Questions: In finalizing a vendor for your custom cabinetry, ensure they are genuine and provide custom solutions. Oftentimes, vendors either have stand sizes in which they create custom solutions or they are restricted with the type of measurements they can provide. For a full custom solution, ensure the vendor you choose is able to cater all types of measurements and spaces to provide the perfect solution for your home.

     

    Think about the Usage of the Cabinetry: In designing the cabinetry, consider the function. In the kitchen, it would be used to stocking crockery, cutlery, and food items. With an entertainment unit, space is needed to access the cords and accessories. Therefore, in designing the cabinetry, consider what all it will be used for based on the room or space it is in. Defining the usage while creating a custom solution eases the design process and allows the vendor further design a solution especially for you. Think about the Usage of the Cabinetry

    Make Sure Shelves can Handle the Weight: Another step to consider is how items will the stored and whether or not heavier or lighter items will be placed and their arrangement. With cabinet shelves, ensure they are sturdy enough to handle the weight. With heavier items additional support may be required.

     

    Choose the Right Finishes: Ensure the finishes are durable and long lasting. Areas in the kitchen, such as near the sink, may require a water resistant finish, while a wardrobe finish has a bit more flexibility. Nevertheless, while choosing the finish, budget also comes into play. Finishes such as laminate are much more economical, while a finish such as PU Paint or Solid wood is more expensive. For all types of furniture in the home, the are a variety of finishes at different price points.

    With finalizing the perfect solution for your home, do your homework before meeting your vendor. Have an idea of what you are looking for before picking out the cabinetry solutions. In doing so, you and your vendor can sit and brainstorm for that perfect custom solution for your home!

  • 4 Practical Home Design Practices to Follow


    Home design is one of the more challenging tasks in creating a new space or renovating an existing home. Oftentimes, one does not know where to start, who to talk to, or where it should even end, and it gets overwhelming. However, before designing the home, there are a few basic practices one should follow to maintain some organization and order and not get confused within the design process. Those 4 principles are below.

     

    1. Organize the Wiring: Wiring is inevitable within a home. Particularly behind the entertainment unit, the wiring can be a chaotic mess of television, DVD Player, Speakers, satellite box, and even gaming consuls. Within extensive wiring in such a small space, it is best to ensure that there is some way of organizing without interfering with the overall design. Whether it is setting panels or grouping certain wires together, keeping the wiring in order eliminates a wiring mess from view and allows for much easier usage of the entire entertainment center.

    2. Wardrobe Shutters: As mentioned in a previous blog, there is a variety of options in wardrobe shutters, one of which can save on significant space. While planning your own home design, consider the space where the wardrobe will be placed, and then decide the shutters accordingly. While hinged shutters are the most conventional, sliding shutters are major space savers which can allow a wardrobe to fit even into a narrow passageway or smaller bedroom. The sliding shutters allow for more movement within the small space without having anything extra get in the way.

    3. Kitchen Work Triangle: Another factor mentioned in a previous blog was the Kitchen Work Triangle. In the design phase, planning a kitchen design around the work triangle is a major lifesaver. Whether the kitchen has one cook or multiple cooks, it is essential that the kitchen space is planned for easy work flow and maximum efficiency. The work triangle should designate the three most important tasks within the kitchen: cooking, cleaning, and storage. In other words, the location of the hob and chimney, location of the sink and dishwasher, and location of the refrigerator. Ensure that the kitchen layout allows for an easily function work triangle for a smooth-running kitchen space. Kitchen Work Triangle
    4. Mindful Vertical Storage: One of the more space-efficient tactics in smaller homes is the use of vertical storage. While it is a great space-saving solution, in designing a home one has to be mindful of its practicality. Especially in modular units, the storage should stay below 7 feet in height, otherwise it is extremely uncomfortable to reach and the storage space goes unused for everyday use.

    Designing your home should reflect you, your lifestyle, and your preferences. In this taxing design process, the basic principles are can get forgotten. As you begin your home design, remember the fundamentals to have a smooth design!

  • 5 Advantages of Fitted Wardrobes In Your Home


    While building or remodeling a home, one of the many questions comes down to whether to go for a fitted wardrobe or a freestanding wardrobe within the bedroom or any other room in the home. Although freestanding wardrobes have their advantages in terms of planning and convenience, the homeowner is often compromising on storage or appearance in order to achieve what is best available to suit their needs. However, with a fitted or bespoke wardrobe, one can easily customize and arrive at a solution to best suit their needs and preferences within the home. Here are some advantages to having your own fitted wardrobe in your space.

     

    Custom-fit, Custom-made: Unlike free-standing wardrobes, fitted wardrobes are customized to the space and storage requirements. Depending on the items and preferences, one can easily customize the storage inside the wardrobe. For example the wardrobe can include the required hanging and pull-outs to fit all the necessary items. In fact, if two people are sharing a wardrobe, such as a married couple, then both sides of the wardrobe can be designed to best suit individual tastes and needs. With a freestanding wardrobe, one has to work with what is available and there is no room for customization.

    Space-Efficient: Bespoke wardrobes use space intelligently and efficiently. They are designed to fit seamlessly into the room without looking too large or too small, and they appear effortless within the the entire space. Freestanding wardrobes can either be too large that they look extremely awkward, or too small leaving significant unused space within a room. However, a fitted wardrobe eliminates the awkward spaces by placing the perfect size for the the designated space. 

    Integrated Lighting: On darker days or in the evenings, it can be challenging to see items inside the wardrobe. With a fitted wardrobe, one can customize the lighting required into the design. In fact, lighting is one of the most overlooked factors of a wardrobe design, and is often not included within a freestanding wardrobe, where one will have to rely on external lighting to illuminate the wardrobe items. However, a built-in or fitted wardrobe allows the user to customize where and when they need the lighting in their space to see fully see their items.

    Enhances Interiors: A fitted wardrobe is designed to enhance the interiors. In designing a room within the wardrobe, the appearance of the wardrobe actually becomes a part of the design process. Therefore, a wardrobe can be designed to complement the remaining decor and color scheme of a room. Wardrobes have an infinite number of options in finishes: from glossy acrylic finish to rustic wooden finishes. Any type of finish can make fitted wardrobe exterior complement the interiors beautifully.

    Efficient Cleaning: All freestanding wardrobes have that little bit of dead space right below the ceiling of a room. That space usually collects dust overtime and unnecessarily adds to the cleaning process. A freestanding can only cover so much space between itself and the wall, but may still allow dust to collect, cobwebs to develop, and little critters to creep in! All of this greatly adds to the cleaning process of a wardrobe. A build-in wardrobe, is made to the ceiling, eliminating dust from collecting on top, and all the way towards the walls, leaving no gaps for any smaller creatures toe creep through. These smaller make the entire wardrobe more efficient by eliminating significant hours of unnecessary cleaning.

    A fitted wardrobe becomes a part of the home you love. It will make the home more valuable, and you will enjoy using it on a daily basis. For your bedroom storage, consider these advantages and get your dream wardrobe as per your wants and needs!

  • 5 Reasons Why You Need a Loft Above your Wardrobe


    As mentioned in many previous blogs, we provide lofts above the wardrobe. Having a loft above the wardrobe has many benefits and it has almost become a necessity. Lofts provide extra storage, use space efficiently, frees up space in the rest of the home, and can look stylish at the same time. Below, check out the top 5 reasons on why YOU need a loft to be a part of your wardrobe.

     

    Efficiency of Space and Storage: As mentioned in previous blogs, lofts provide extensive storage. The unused space above the main wardrobe is often left to collect dust. With a loft, that same space is filled with extra storage. Who does not want extra storage in their home? The loft is fitted to the area, and covering up all awkward corners and wall angles and providing another storage space at the same time. 

    Stylish: Not only is the loft efficient, it is also stylish. A fitted loft, gives the space a clean and completed look, and adds to contemporary design. It transforms any room, giving that finished appearance to the wardrobe space. Well designed lofts hide all of the awkward corners and finish a room's storage space.

     

    Free Up Space: Having that additional storage towards the ceiling frees up storage space in the rest of the home or room. Rather than having a freestanding cabinet interfering with the bedroom, why not have a loft above the wardrobe to serve the same purpose? Therefore, that particular space within the room or home can be used for something else, rather than extra storage 

    Customized: Wardrobe lofts are built and customized to fit the exact size of the space above the wardrobe. Therefore, it is built with your exact measurements and height requirements in mind. whether it is loft with a flat roof above or a loft under the stairs, wardrobe lofts are customized as per your requirements. They can be designed to match your wardrobe and create a completed look for the entire space.

     

    Easy Maintenance: Finally lofts are very easy to maintain. Since they are fitted to the exact size, there are no open areas above or around the wardrobe that collect dust and dirt. Therefore, that is one less area to clean up in the home. Rather than dealing with furniture or tops of furniture collecting dust, build a loft on top: more storage, efficient use of space customizable, and easy maintenance!

  • Matt Finish or Gloss Finish? Which works Well for YOU?


    In creating a brand new space, the conversation of finish always comes up. Whether it is the kitchen or wardrobe, the finish defines the look of the entire space and can impact the remaining interior design. ModSpace.in has several finishes, but basics of finishes start with matt vs. gloss finishes. Before even getting into whether you want a laminate finish or an acrylic finish, the first step is to decided whether you want a matt or a glass. A matt or gloss finish dramatically makes up the look of the entire space, whether it is a kitchen or a wardrobe. Each style has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Check out our guide below on which finish would work best for you.

    Matt Finish: The matt finish is often seen in traditional layouts and furniture designs, but it is steadily growing popular in modern kitchen and wardrobe designs. The matt finish gives a very muted and understated appearance, and adds an element of sophistication to  a given space.

    • Advantages of Matt Finish
      • Due to its muted appearance, imperfections, such as scratches and finger prints are less noticeable and can easily be camouflaged within the cabinetry
      • There is increased color consistency. Because there is no light or reflection on the cabinet, the finish appears more consistent and smooth
    • Disadvantages of Matt Finish
      • The matt finish does not reflect light, but it absorbs light, so one has to be careful in choosing a matt finish for a smaller kitchen design. The darker matt colors especially can make a space feel smaller, rather than larger.
      • The matt finish is not as smooth as the gloss finish, which can make it a little more difficult to clean. However, the cleaning process is still fairly straightforward.

    Gloss Finish: The gloss finish is extremely popular for modern interiors. Many homeowners are opting for a high gloss finish for their modular kitchens or modular wardrobes. The gloss has a shiny finish, which reflects light

    • Advantages of Gloss Finish
      • The glossy finish reflects light, which is great for smaller spaces: such as small kitchen layouts or small wardrobe designs. The reflective nature of the gloss gives the illusion that a space is larger than it actually is.
      • The smooth surface of the gloss cabinetry makes them very easy to clean, requiring a simple use of a microfiber cloth.
    • Disadvantages of Gloss Finish
      • The reflective nature of the gloss finish shows imperfections very quickly. Therefore, finger prints and scratches are immediately visible. This is especially common with dark gloss tones, where the imperfections show up even more than on the lighter colors.

    Both matt finish and gloss finish are equally attractive in the contemporary home space. The finish defines the style and creates the overall look for the interiors. Use this guide to work out which one works for you!!

  • Everything to know about the Sliding Shutter Wardrobes


    As mentioned in a previous blog, one can opt for sliding shutter wardrobes, rather than the conventional openable hinge shutters for their wardrobes. Many homeowners prefer the sliding shutters because they are visually neater, more space efficient, and at the same time still provide the same convenience and storage that comes with a more conventional wardrobe.

     

    • Designing a Sliding Wardrobe: Depending on the space and size of the wardrobe, the first step is to decide the number of shutters necessary for given space: which will be two or three shutters. The shutters will overlap one another, and will be fixed in a seamless manner, making it easy to maneuver. The internal storage for the wardrobe can easily be optimized with storage accessories, including pull-out rods, wire baskets, and deeper corner storage. For internal storage options, check the previous blog post. For the exterior design, ModSpace.in provides extensive options in colors and textures. With plenty of matte and gloss options, a ModSpare.in sliding wardrobe will complement the entire room space, making it look sleek, neat, and clean.

    • Advantages
      • Excellent space savers. Since the shutters move from side to side, they do not require extra space to open out in front.
      • Neat and clean look. The entire wardrobe highlights and emphasizes the modern look within a room. The wardrobe appears more streamline and less bulky, compared to the conventional openable shuttered wardrobes.
      • The shutter panels are smooth, and they slide through the tracks effortlessly, making it easy to use.

     

    • Disadvantages
      • Not lockable. Due to the sliding mechanism of the wardrobe, the sliding shutters cannot be locked. However, one can opt for lockable storage inside the wardrobe itself. Oftentimes, homeowners opt for lockable drawers.
      • Can only access part of the wardrobe at one time. Depending on the number of shutters, the user can only access one side of the wardrobe at a time. If there are two shutters, then the user can only slide the shutter to one side and access half the wardrobe. If the wardrobe has three shutters, then only a third of the wardrobe can be accessed at one time. Compared to the conventional, open-out wardrobes, the entire wardrobe cannot be accessed at once.

    Sliding wardrobes are a great way to get extensive storage with in a small amount of space. Their streamline look works well in a contemporary room, and they give a very smooth appearance. With a small sacrifice of accessing only part of the wardrobe at one given time, the sliding wardrobe is a great solution for any space. For your sliding wardrobe, contact us!
