9 Things to Consider When Designing Bespoke Walk-in Wardrobes

Looking to gain more usable, accessible space? You need a walk-in wardrobe, and this is what you need to consider…

Walk-in Wardrobe

1.   Space is everywhere

It may only look like a few inches under eaves of your bedroom or a small alcove but with the right design and finish, it is valuable storage space with a myriad of uses.

Think ahead and identify ‘vacant’ space in the bedroom, no matter how small.

2.   Prioritise hanging

Before you start choosing the number of drawers and shelving units for the interior of your wardrobe, decide how much hanging space you need, whether this needs to be full height or half height, and the best place for it. Everything else can be added and built around.

3.   Make use of redundant space

The space above hanging rails is rarely used so add a shelf and consider how other redundant spaces can be used. Perfect for storing less frequently used items, these small additions will make a big difference.

4.   Shoe rack choices

Shoe bars are great for heeled shoes but for your trainers and flat pumps you’ll need flat shoe shelving instead. Consider a mix if you have a mix of footwear.

5.   Clever fittings

Pull out shoe larders, similar to pull out drawers in the kitchen, are ideal in so many ways. Storing multiple shoes in less space, if you have a shoe collection, this is a perfect addition.

6.   Lights, lights, lights

It’ll be no fun scrambling about in the dark even if it is a bespoke walk-in wardrobe. Well-planned lighting is key to making it work but it can swallow a fifth of your budget. Opt for LED lighting which is energy efficient and money saving lighting option.

7.   Sliding or swing doors

If are stuck for floor space, sliding doors work a treat. They open to allow full access to everything inside without encroaching on your bedroom. Swing doors can offer much the same, but you will need space right in front of the wardrobe for them to really work.

8.   Bespoke fitted as an investment

Creating your own with modular choices is all well and good but the investment in a fitted, bespoke walk-in wardrobe will pay dividends, making the best use of space as well as being stylish, you’ll find that when it does come time to sell, the walk-in wardrobe could be part of what clinches the deal.

9.   Easy on the budget

If your budget is uber-tight, consider opting for open shelving over drawers, which tend to be more expensive as they involve more material and craftsmanship.
