How to Design the Perfect Walk-in Wardrobe

Monday, January 05, 2015

Every woman dreams of having a walk-in closet where she could walk in and get lost in all the clothes and shoes she has. The purpose of a walk-in closet is to allow more space for your belongings. It can help you organise your clothing much more efficiently. At the same time, finding your stuff is easier than ever. A place for everything and everything in its place, that's how it works. But to make your closet functional, you need to incorporate several things. Here I'm going to talk about how to design the perfect walk-in wardrobe and what to include in it.

Things to Consider

One of the most important things to consider when building a walk-in wardrobe is how much space you have. It is important that your bedroom is big enough to accommodate a walk-in wardrobe. Furthermore, I've heard that it's best to use odd-shaped or L-shaped bedrooms, but as far as I know, any medium-sized room can make do.

Another important thing to consider is how you're going to organise your wardrobe. For maximum efficiency, you need to install shelves, cabinets, tables and other storage space where you can put not only your clothing and shoes, but also your bags, scarves and other accessories.

And the third thing I would like to focus on before I move on to my next point is cleanness. You'll have to keep your wardrobe as clean as every other room in the house. Perhaps it is a wise idea to choose materials that don't get dirty very easily. This will make cleaning piece of cake. It will also save you time wiping and dusting. Now let's have a look at what you can place in your walk-in wardrobe to make it perfect.

What to Include in Your Walk-in Wardrobe Design:

Sliding Doors 

Sliding doors have many functional and design benefits. Most sliding doors today are made of safety glass, which means that they are safe and secure. In addition, they save space. This will make your bedroom much more spacious. Last but not least, sliding doors look elegant, minimalist and beautiful. They are just more functional and more fun. A great accessory to every home and to every walk-in wardrobe. I suggest if your budget allows, that your go for sliding doors.

Furniture and Lighting 

If your wardrobe is spacious enough, be sure to incorporate a dressing table, racks and chairs. They will add more comfort and functionality to your walk-in wardrobe. You can find some cost-effective dressing tables at online stores such as eBay, Amazon and others.

I've also seen TVs placed in walk-in wardrobes. That's probably too much but if you like spending time in your wardrobe, why not add a TV? You surely will have a great time. Just you and your luxurious clothes. You can entertain yourself to your heart's content.

Another important factor is lighting. As your wardrobe will not have any windows, you need to ensure good lighting. Tips: consider using fluorescent light bulbs to make your wardrobe more energy efficient.


Mirrors are a must. A walk-in wardrobe without a full length mirror is like a bathroom without a sink. It's important to see your whole body when you are getting dressed either for a formal occasion or for a walk outdoors. See, walk-in closets and mirrors go together. Plus, mirrors can make any room seem much more spacious than it is. So, go for mirrors!

Shoe Cascade 

The perfect place to store your shoes in a perfect walk-in wardrobe is a shoe cascade. I advise you to install one so that your footwear has a designated space in the closet. Shoe cascades are great because they can help you maximise the space in any room. I'm sure you want to get the most of you wardrobe, so be sure to make some room for your footwear too.
