Walk-in wardrobes are inviting and luxurious and an enviable addition to any home. Having a dedicated room for your clothes means you’ll be able to bring a sense of order to your life. However, having the right storage is the key to keeping your walk-in wardrobe organised and clutter-free.
I am very lucky to have a spare bedroom in which I can facilitate this kind of arrangement, which means I have a clutter free space to sleep in – here are my top tips for organisation.
Keep things light
While walk-in wardrobes are the epitome of sophistication and luxe, they often lack windows and therefore, need additional lighting installed to keep things looking bright. There’s nothing worse than having a dark and dull space in your home.
If you’re considering adding some luxury lighting, you could install warm recessed LEDs to create a relaxed and calming environment. Or, use mirrored door designs to give the illusion of a brighter, larger space. And, these mirrors are perfectly convenient for checking out your fits before leaving the house.
Add decorative detail
Your walk-in wardrobe should be a reflection of your personality and style. Consider adding a feature wall that incorporates colour and patterns to make the space more dynamic. Then, position your dressing table in front of this wall to create a stunning, focal point in the room. You could go for a a block of colour with paint or for more creative ideas use a patterned wallpaper to get the style you want,
You could also add some practical detailing in your storage units, such as pull-out shoe racks, jewellery trays, cosmetic units, and counter-balance hanging rails. I love this as it makes everything easy to find and more accessible.
Create a luxury boutique feel
Whether you want your clothes hidden behind closed doors or on display for all to see, either option will contribute to a luxury feel. For instance, glass storage doors allow you to showcase your items while keeping them secure and dust-free.
Using a combination of the two can also be useful. You could keep the items you don’t tend to reach for behind traditional wardrobe doors, and your most-used well-loved pieces in display cabinets. You could also add cabinet lighting to bring warmth and depth to your storage solution.
Subdivide your room
If you’re desperate for a walk-in wardrobe but don’t have an extra room to use, you could add a partition in the master bedroom if it’s spacious enough. This can easily be achieved by using flatpack furniture and adding a faux back panel across wardrobes or to a shelving unit to divide a space.
That way, you can create an area for a dressing room or your own walk-in storage space. You can also decorate this area separately so it feels as though you have two rooms in one.
Your walk-in wardrobe should be an appealing space that you want to spend your time in. Choose modern finishes that make the room look clean and contemporary at all times.
Don’t forget essentials such as a floor length mirror or a dressing table to make the most of the space.
Match your walk-in wardrobe to your home interior to keep things consistent. Perhaps you’d like an authentic, rustic design, or an on-trend minimal space with clean lines and chic furniture. The choice is yours.
