10 examples of floor-to-ceiling built-in wardrobes in the bedroom

When clothes disappear into the walls: With floor-to-ceiling closets, there’s also a sense of visual calm in the bedroom

Peace and security, relaxation from the hustle and bustle of everyday life – all this we look for in the bedroom. But instead of a place to rest, we often find this: piles of laundry because the beautiful farmhouse closet is already overflowing. Or boxes that are hastily shoved under the bed and quickly find no other place.

The most effective antidote to annoying piles of clothes in the bedroom was and remains a large built-in wardrobe. Ideally a little bigger than you think. Because floor-to-ceiling built-in cabinets, made to measure, appear much smaller than freestanding cabinets. We’ll show you ten examples of wall units that extend all the way to the ceiling and give you tips on how to use every corner!

  1. Get rid of your closet…

This built-in wardrobe was made to measure the bedroom of a single-family home in Hamburg. It fills the walls from wall to wall and allows the occupant’s wardrobe to disappear elegantly behind seven floor-to-ceiling doors – matching the color of the walls, disappearing with them. Wall units with hidden handles were designed as well when redesigning the remaining rooms.

  1. …or play with building blocks!

In contrast, the purple cabinet construction with its sculptural appearance is much more striking.

Also made to measure, this wall unit sits perfectly under the gable of the home. Like building blocks stacked on top of each other, modules of different depths break up large areas. The color gradient from light to dark brings movement into the room.

Tip: Especially with sloped ceilings, custom built-in solutions offer maximum storage space that you shouldn’t waste. In addition, the cabinet fronts that extend all the way to the ceiling calm the room.

  1. Enter the room door

A white built-in wardrobe extends into the final corner of the bedroom under the loft. The open sleeping area can be reached from the front via a gallery, while the bathroom is in the background. Access to the bathroom is seamlessly integrated into the white wall unit, so there is no other room behind it when closed. Bevels can be utilized optimally through custom-made production.

  1. Plan for overhead costs

The bed can also be included judiciously in the planning of a built-in wardrobe – without you having to feel threatened by a wall cupboard above the head of the bed. Rathke’s interior design shows how to work with this bedroom in Munich: A comfortable double bed with an upholstered headboard is positioned slightly away from the wall. The area behind it now functions as practical storage and an extension of the bedside table. Right above the head of the bed there is a row of white cupboards, which visually connect the two elements on the right and left of the bed. Because the cupboard above a double bed has a slightly smaller depth than the standing element, it barely protrudes beyond the pillows.

  1. Loosen the surface…

Do you feel overwhelmed by bulky wall units? Small open compartments and shelves can also be used to brighten dark areas effectively.

Impressive in black, this wall unit also has a heavyweight visual, which Bespoke helps make lighter with a simple trick. The recesses in the two cabinet doors provide an overview of the cabinet interior and look like small open shelves.

  1. …or ensuring peace and tranquility in all aspects

If the wall space is rather small or you want to build a cabinet around a door, you should ensure peace and clarity by dividing the cabinet doors as clearly and symmetrically as possible. When you enter a small bedroom in an old apartment in Munich, the wardrobe is not visible at first and therefore does not feel too restrictive. The wallpaper door to the right of the image leads to a walk-in closet. White walls and white bed linen also guarantee a neat and harmonious overall impression.

try to design a built-in cupboard as tall as the room, because the cupboard no longer looks too big and the whole room is used.

  1. Think outside the box!

The award-winning team of architects Reinhardt Jung from Frankfurt shows how effectively the division of cupboard doors can be used as a room design element with this wall unit in an old Berlin Wilhelminian style building. Looks modern and dynamic with the slanted door. The team created a colorful contrast with the predominance of white in the rest of the interior with the interior of the cupboards, which surprise with shades of green and blue.

  1. Play the material

The gray surface of this MDF wall unit is reminiscent of an exposed concrete wall, which perfectly complements a bedroom designed in white and light gray. Planning and Building Inc. of Florida designed it to match the rest of the bright room, which has a very calming effect.

Since MDF does not warp, unlike solid wood, this material is best suited for making built-in wardrobes. Varnished, coated or coated, you have almost unlimited options when choosing a surface appearance.

  1. Don’t let windows stop you!

Matarozzi Pelsinger Builders points out that windows do not block wall units in bedrooms. Fully framed by dark walnut veneer wall units, residents not only have space for their entire wardrobe, but can also enjoy beautiful views of the streets of San Francisco from a comfortable window seat.

  1. Stick with the same wood

This DIY built-in wardrobe made of plywood almost looks like a wall projection, with a soft and comfortable window seat nestled above it. Fixtures such as wall panels are made from the same wood, so the room gives off a natural impression as if it were made from one piece.
