The inside of the wardrobe
In general, hanging garments for women and men occupy a maximum of 140 cm in height by 50 in depth (see diagrams), so the most logical solution is to arrange the clothes in profile in containers 60 cm deep which, coincidentally, is just the depth of standard cabinets.
However, closets for clothes less than 60 cm deep can be found on the market (or can be built). They are useful containers when an environment is very narrow, but in this case the clothes rail instead of going from one side of the wardrobe to the other goes from the back to the door, fixing itself to the structure just above the door: the clothes can therefore be seen flat and, in a width of about 120 cm (i.e. in a wardrobe with two doors), two sticks can be placed which will be as long as the depth of the wardrobe, i.e. 45-50 cm, on each of which 7 can be hung -8 men’s suits. The internal compartment of a wardrobe where clothes and overcoats are hung must not be less than 135 cm in height and the compartment for men’s clothes not less than 110 cm.
For sweaters, T-shirts and sheets, it is advisable to prepare drawers or special removable trays (60 x 40 cm), which contain a maximum of four items. Linen in general and other foldable garments will be placed on movable shelves, taking care to leave a space of cm between one shelf and the other. 45 or so for obvious practical reasons. Shorter dresses, such as women’s jackets and hanging shirts, measure 60 to 110cm in height.
Therefore, for convenience, two areas can be provided inside the wardrobe, one low, accessible from the ground, which will be used for seasonal clothes, the other higher for off-season clothes. When the season changes, just replace the clothes above with those below to always have everything at hand.
