Fitted wardrobes and bedroom storage space has to be high up on everyone’s priority when it comes to planning or designing a bedroom. Even if we are not working with a big room, it is still possible to create surprisingly efficient storage space. At Unico we supply many items for use in building perfect fitted wardrobes. Consider incorporating some of the following items into your custom wardrobe designs: Items for hanging To help organise a wardrobe and especially if space is limited, we supply a range of pull-down and pull-out options for hanging clothes , including trousers , ties, and belts.
