It is every girl’s dream to own a gorgeous walk-in wardrobe complete with wall-to-wall shelves, a shining chandelier and huge mirrors to admire her latest conquests in designer wear and high-street fashion. The thing is, the dream does come through because walk-in wardrobes are no longer reserved for the wealthy and the elite. These days, with a spare bedroom, an unused storeroom or even just a little extra space here and there, you, too, can design and build a proper walk-in wardrobe at highly cost-effective prices.

There are many benefits to having a walk-in wardrobe. You can organise and arrange your barang barang the way you like, and gain access to them quickly without having to dig deep into an ordinary closet. Having a bigger space also allows you to ensure that your possessions, especially the branded stuff, are properly stored. In this article, we are featuring five fantastic walk-in wardrobe ideas that can be easily adapted to your home.

1. Sharing the Closet Space

If you have a large spare room, why not use it for a walk-in closet and for other activities such as painting, writing or yoga practice at the same time? A yoga practice area, for instance, only needs the size of a walk-in wardrobe, which is a bit longer than a yoga mat and a little wider than your arm space. It is a perfect space as it does not require you to move any furniture or dodge any clutter even when you stretch out to your fullest.

2. Sliding doors

Sliding doors are useful for walk-in wardrobe because they let you connect or disconnect the space to your bedroom as and when you want to. This way, you can demarcate the rooms, keeping the sleeping area and the dressing area separate. And because most walk-ins have limited space, sliding doors can also help you optimise your floor area.

Is this one room or two? A sliding door lets you decide when you want to keep your walk-in wardrobe separate from your bedroom.

3. Flow of Space

An open concept walk-in wardrobe that is linked to your master bedroom can create a more fluid dynamics, with spaces flowing seamlessly into one another. By breaking the boundaries and visually opening up the areas, it merges the two into one fluid transition from one space to another while allowing you to optimise your floor space to its fullest potential.

4. Don’t Neglect Your Footwear

A closet is for storage, so don’t forget to build shelves for accessories like jewellery, belts, ties (for the men in the house) and even your footwear. And what better way to show off your shoe collection than by using open shelving that doubles as a decor? For easier access and extra storage, consider installing double-depth storage with pull-out rolling hinges so that you can see everything when selecting the right pair of stilettos!

5. In Your Best Light

The lighting mood in your walk-in closet is also an essential consideration. Not only does the right lighting accurately gauge the colours of your clothes, but it also makes the users feel good while trying on clothes. Many walk-in wardrobes also include background lighting or spotlights to accentuate your limited edition clothing pieces or accessories. To enhance the design aesthetics, why not add a small classic chandelier to give a glamorous feel?
