Creating The Perfect Walk-In Wardrobe - 5 Things You Need To Know
Updated: Apr 11, 2018
Whether you love labels and have a wardrobe to die for, or even if you just like to keep your clothes stored neatly, a walk-in wardrobe is a covetable addition to any home. With careful space planning a little forethought and help from our designers at The Beautiful Wardrobe Company, getting one that’s the envy of Carrie Bradshaw is easier than you might think. Our job is to turn your spaces into seamless walk-in wardrobes made with the finest materials. We believe that a walk in wardrobe should be spacious and gorgeously-fitted in equal measures. Here are our 5 top tips you need to know before going any further.
Space is key. But have you considered stealing some inches from the footprint of an existing room to create a walk-in wardrobe – space under eaves can be sectioned off for example, with drawers against the short wall and hanging space against the new full height partition. Or if you’re extending your home to incorporate a new bedroom or bathroom, get in touch and we can plan the layout a little more carefully and include some clever storage space too. Thinking ahead about your walk-in wardrobe can save time, money, and help you make best use of the space.
The Importance of Hanging
Here at The Beautiful Wardrobe Company, we are passionate about hanging. For instance, you can always put an extra set of drawers in the bedroom but you can’t hang your clothes there. Separate short and long garments and measure how many metres of hanging space you need for each, then add 20% more. An average 2.2m ceiling height will allow for two rows of short hanging, one above the other, or one row or long hanging with shelves or drawers underneath.
Making Use Of Redundant Space
Any space in a wardrobe is valuable space. At The Beautiful Wardrobe Company we make the most of the space you have. Shelves above hanging rails or doors can be used to accommodate less frequently used items (hat boxes, say) and a set of closed cupboards will protect more expensive garments from dust. Install a set at the end of a long walk-in wardrobe, and use our exclusively designed mirrored doors to maximise the feeling of space. Check out our latest designs for some all important inspiration.
Don't Forget The Shoes.
Shoe bars only work with heeled footwear. Or how about a pull out ‘shoe larder’ (similar to those found in kitchens) that can stow multiple pairs in a narrow space, and mean shoes are stored separately.
Lighting Is Key
Well-planned lighting will give your walk-in wardrobe a real exclusive, inviting feel. We are experts in knowing what the best lighting design in for your walk-in wardrobe. LEDs give the best light for viewing garments, and spot lights can be adjusted.
