Although built-in cabinets are more expensive than conventional ones, they also have many advantages. These pieces make the most of the space since they are installed in the ceiling, floor or the walls on both sides of the furniture. When occupying the space between the walls, no dust accumulates, and the only thing that needs to be cleaned is the door. These pieces adapt to various styles and can be lined with different types of doors like sliding or folding. 

One of the most significant drawbacks of built-in wardrobes is the lack of flexibility. Once it is embedded, its location is fixed. That is why when we propose to change the decoration of the room the location of the closet will condition the new distribution. In case you are wondering about how to modernize a built-in wardrobe, then the best alternatives in such cases are to vary the design a little. You can open or decorate it entirely to make the closet look like different.

If you have a large closet, you can remove the doors and leave it open. By including some drawers and shelves, you can create a dressing room in the blink of an eye. Also, when removing the doors, the closet will be less bulky. Another option is to place a dressing room like the one in this picture where the wardrobe is located. The design has multiple levels for the reorganization of clothing, shoes and all kinds of accessories.

5. Open it subtly

If you want to open your wardrobe without leaving everything in view, then you can use curtains. Cover with them the parts of the new dressing that you do not want to leave in sight. In addition to hiding the garments, the fabric will also serve as a decorative element. You can choose shades in neutral tones for Scandinavian style rooms or strong tones for rooms inspired by modern decoration.

6. Integrate into the decoration
