No matter what your motivation is for having a walk-in wardrobe, it is a luxurious addition to any home. With some careful planning and time, you’ll be able to create a wardrobe that will look the part, as well as become the envy of your neighbours.
Here are our tips for how to create that perfect walk-in wardrobe.
Find the right space
Have a good think about where in your home you can steal some space from. Could you spare a few inches from another bedroom perhaps? If you’re thinking of extending your property to install a new bedroom or bathroom, take a little more time to plan its layout and include some storage space as well. There’s no need to rush something like this; thinking ahead will save both time and money.
Focus on hanging space
An extra set of drawers can always be added in a bedroom, but you can’t hang your clothes there. Separate your clothing between short and long items and measure how much hanging space you’ll require for each, and then add an extra 20% of space. Around 2m of ceiling height will allow for two rows of short hanging space, one above the other. Or instead implement one long row of hanging space with drawers underneath; the possibilities are vast.
Maximise every inch of space
Ensure you make the most of any spare space you may have in your walk-in wardrobe, provided the walkways aren’t blocked as a result. You could install shelves above hanging rails and doors to store smaller items such as accessories and shoes, or a set of cupboards to protect less worn items from collecting dust.
Consider the fitting
Take a look at modular layouts for your walk-in wardrobe or instead get one bespoke fitted. Just remember that a bespoke interior will cost you more, however it does allow for more creative freedom. Have a browse on Pinterest for further ideas and inspiration on possible designs for your space.
