The Perfect Walk-in Wardrobe

Posted by formed on 2 September 2015

The luxury of having a walk-in wardrobe is one which many people dream of incorporating into their home. Contrary to common belief, this idea isn’t as far-fetched as you may think, as a walk-in wardrobe doesn’t actually require very much space. This article will provide you with a few top tips when designing the perfect walk-in wardrobe so you won’t ever have to worry about rifling through piles of clothes or an overflowing wardrobe again!

1. Purpose

Whether you have a purpose-built room or are converting part of your bedroom, for homeowners with the space to accommodate a walk-in wardrobe they provide the ultimate in storage, so dresses, shoes, folded clothes or toys are easily accessible.

As with any storage solution, the key to a successful storage system is organisation. You must decide on which items you are planning to store and how often they are used to ensure the design of your walk-in wardrobe is practical as well as stylish.

2. Layout

When designing a walk-in wardrobe, you need to decide on a layout which utilises all available space. Hiring the expertise of a professional fitted furniture company will help to make the entire process much easier and will ensure there is plenty of space to hang garments and fit shelves.

3. Measurements

By enlisting the help of an expert you can rest easy knowing that the correct measurements will be taken. The width, depth and height of the walls must all be measured, as well as the space available either side of any obstacles such as windows, beams, doors and radiators, as these must be factored into the design too.

4. Decorating

The primary aim of a walk-in wardrobe is to provide an efficient storage solution to help declutter your space, so it’s important that the interior of the wardrobe is light and airy for an organised, clean look.

To achieve this, careful consideration must be made to your choice of lighting so it illuminates the space without feeling too clinical. For small wardrobes with limited floor space, overhead lighting offers the perfect solution, as the lights can be fitted high up on the ceiling. Incorporating a window into the wardrobe will also allow natural light to filter into the space, or alternatively you could fit skylights to give this effect.

5. Finishing touches

Walk-in wardrobes can instantly inject a sense of luxury and opulence into any home, and the little finishing touches can be what transforms the wardrobe into your dream storage space. A few ideas include:

  • Scented room diffusers to keep your clothes smelling fresh
  • Mirrored doors for added convenience and to give the illusion of extra space
  • Built-in or freestanding glass cabinets for folded or hanging clothes
