At night you become the owner of a spacious bed, and during the day the location that occupied the bed becomes free since, after taking an upright position, it hides behind a luxurious facade.

As for the bed integrated in the Ikea closet, it allows you to free up space for free movement. Professionals concluded that such a box can save almost 70% of free space.

Sliding wardrobes on the market have long occupied a prominent place, forcing ordinary wardrobes and bulky furniture. This happens mainly because they allow you to use any inch of space that would go unused in the case of regular cabinets due to its functional storage system. Thus, a unique opportunity is offered to harmonize the living space as much as possible.
First of all, these are doors that, in the case of opening, do not require space, because scatter on guides. In this regard, it is possible to use the entire surface of the room for the complete program. The options for built-in wardrobes are also extremely practical: in this case, the walls and ceiling in the room serve as both the side and back walls, as well as the ceiling. With the acquisition of cabinets, too, there are no problems: the modules can be made both to order and to purchase. By the way, the most convenient way to mount the built-in wardrobe is in a niche. And you can place it absolutely in any room. Let us dwell on each in more detail.

With their help, the hallway will be visually separated, mirror lighting will be added, and the height of the room will also increase. The most powerful effect is achieved if you use cabinets with a mirror over the entire area of the door – the perceived space will increase significantly.

Sliding wardrobes can easily fit anywhere in the room and place on their shelves as much as they ever would in a regular closet. For example, the interior of a living room with a wardrobe is unusually transformed and visually expands, especially if the doors are mirrored or shiny. They are most often found in modern interiors, such as minimalism.
In general, I must say that in the living room such a closet will not only play the role of storage, but also become the main piece of furniture, bringing its own special atmosphere. The decoration of the door should be combined with the rest of the design elements.
Inside the bedroom are also suitable wardrobes. Only they are already ranked second in importance after bedtime.

In most cases, the piece of furniture fits completely, without side shelves. Only the facade is visible to the eye, that is to say the doors. So, such a cabinet has neither side walls nor a roof, since it fits perfectly into the wall, where the shelves are simply placed. After which the shelves are closed with a beautiful decorative front. This cabinet option is very practical and economical in every way since it does not require any material costs for the side walls, roof and floor. Space is also a big saving, and the built-in version of the closet is therefore essential for small apartments. And built-in wardrobes can be in a niche, in a corner, or in general throughout the wall.
As for internal content – here the number of options is not limited to anything. Therefore, if you make a cabinet to order, you can immediately discuss any suitable internal filling of the shelves, depending on the purpose of the cabinet. If it is intended for the hallway, then it is a filling, which includes the storage of outerwear. And if the closet is located, for example, in the living room or bedroom, then another upholstery will be needed, where there will be no hangers for outerwear, but there will be a lot of other household items required. And often the filling of such cabinets consists not only of ordinary shelves, but also of various sizes of retractable screens. There may also be sliding baskets and drawers to store small items.
It is very important to think about the decorative front of the cabinet, because it can greatly transform the room. Therefore, you should carefully approach this issue and choose the most suitable option for a particular interior. And there can be several options: wooden,
from laminated chipboard (the cheapest way) – it all depends on the interior design. Again, wood, glass and mirrored facades can be just as shiny
– it is selected directly under the interior. After all, our task is to bring it to life to the fullest by adding color and expressiveness to the room. In summary, it is worth noting that cabinets not only find their perfect application in any room, regardless of their location, but also add a special style to them.
