A Guide to Having a Walk-In Wardrobe

They say size matters and for walk-in wardrobes, it is definitely the case of the bigger, the better! While turning an entire bedroom space into a walk-in wardrobe is very, very tempting, it is important to consider whether it is worthwhile to do so – especially if you’re thinking of welcoming a little one soon!

However, it is still possible to achieve your dream wardrobe. The best part? You don’t have to sacrifice an entire room or carry out major hacking works!

Before you go wild with designing your walk-in wardrobe, think about how much space you wish to dedicate to the space. This helps you decide on the layout of your walk-in wardrobe. Some ideas include a galley style with an aisle in between two closets, an L-shape configuration with ample (standing) space, or even a little boxed-up enclave for that exclusive feel.

Fitting a walk-in wardrobe in your bedroom means having to maximise space with the help of an efficient design. Regardless of the layout you’re going for, it’s helpful to swap out the hinged doors for sliding frames or even ceiling-to-ground curtains – not only do they help to save space, but they also create an illusion of a wider aisle.

Yes, it’s possible to accessorise your walk-in wardrobe! A full-length mirror is a must-have; be it on the wall, the wardrobe door, or sliding frame. Spruce it up with statement lighting that brightens up the space, and then add pops of colour such as a feature wall, painting, or plant.
