Choosing A Walk-In Wardrobe

Maximising Space Efficiency:

For maximum space in your walk-in, utilise the whole height of the room with floor-to-ceiling storage solutions, incorporating shelves, cabinets, and drawers. This ensures ample space for both hanging garments and folded items, helping you keep the bedroom clutter-free.

Consider carefully how much drop you’ll need. Long coats and dresses need plenty of space to properly hang and to avoid getting creased.

Customised Shelving & Storage:

Tailor your walk-in wardrobe to your specific needs with customisable shelving and storage. Incorporate adjustable shelves and modular storage units that can be easily rearranged to accommodate different types of clothing and accessories. This flexibility ensures that your wardrobe can adapt over time.


Illuminate your walk-in wardrobe with smart lighting solutions that not only enhance visibility but also contribute to the overall aesthetic appeal. LED strip lights along shelves or motion-activated lighting can add a touch of sophistication and make finding your favourite outfit easier.

Dressing Area Integration:

Elevate your walk-in wardrobe further by incorporating a designated dressing area. Install a full-length mirror, a comfortable seating option, and adequate lighting to create a space where you can comfortably prepare for the day ahead. Remember you need to be able to stand back far enough to get a good look at yourself but also get up close to the mirror as well. 

If you’ve got room, you can incorporate a dressing table for makeup and styling as well.

Colour Coordination & Theme:

Coordinate the colour palette and design theme of your walk-in wardrobe with the overall bedroom styling. This creates a seamless flow between the bedroom and the wardrobe space. Whether you prefer a monochromatic scheme or a burst of vibrant colours, ensure that the walk-in wardrobe complements the aesthetics of the bedroom, even if it tweaks them slightly and plays on them.

Think Specific:

How are you going to accommodate specific items such as shoes, accessories, and handbags? Pull-out shoe racks, accessory drawers with dividers, and dedicated storage for small items like jewellery contribute to an organised and visually pleasing walk-in wardrobe.

Open Shelving for Display:

Displaying your favourite accessories, shoes, or even decorative items. This not only creates a visually appealing display but also makes it easy to access frequently used items.

Seasonal Rotation & Accessibility:

Design your walk-in wardrobe to facilitate seasonal rotation of clothing. Install pull-down rods for high shelves and easily accessible storage for seasonal items. This ensures that your wardrobe remains functional and organised throughout the year.

A walk-in wardrobe can be a great addition to your home, helping to keep clothing organised and in good condition, and helping you to put together outstanding outfits and looks. It can also contribute to the design of your home and can be an especially good way to build on the design themes in your bedroom and ensuite bathroom.
