A walk-in wardrobe is a fantastic way to keep your clothes and accessories organised and accessible. Yet, many walk-in wardrobes get cluttered and unorganised easily.
Canterbury Robes aims at offering the best walk-in wardrobe solutions. We have compiled a list of useful tips that will help you stay organised.
Weigh between usefulness and practicality
Some people only think about the practical features, leaving out the aesthetics, while others only think of aesthetics and leave out useful functions. This is where we come in and help you make decisions based on both aesthetics and practicality. We’ll make sure you fall in love with your walk-in wardrobe and enjoy every minute of dressing up.
Plan the layout of your wardrobe
The layout is essentially the spatial organisation of the wardrobe. It will help you outline how you organise the space, and where everything should go. When planning for the ideal layout, it is essential to consider the space you have at hand. How big is the room? Can you save space with floor storage solutions (such as boxes)? Will shelves come in handy? Are your favourite drawers going to fit?
Don’t forget that proper layout isn’t just about optimising your wardrobe’s design, but it is also all about making your clothes and accessories easier to access. The layout of your walk-in should ultimately be very user-friendly. The last thing you want is to spend an inconsiderate amount of time digging for stuff!
Use hanging rails to maximise space
Hanging rails can be the best solution to hang jackets, shirts, dresses, and other items, such as scarves. You can even choose to hang jeans and pants if you don’t feel like folding them in a drawer. There are many types of hanging rails available. Some of them are simple and affordable yet effective in most situations.
Maximise space with drawers or use open shelves.
Drawers are amazing to store small items. They enable you to seamlessly manage your underwear, socks, hats, and other accessories, going for a de-cluttered, organised solution.
If you are not a fan of closets, you could opt for open shelves. These are usually great alternatives for those who prefer a more visual and open setup for smaller items.
Include a mirror
If you have the space for it, you could consider including a mirror. This is a great way to get ready quickly. A mirror in your walk-in wardrobe can be convenient, as you do not have to run back and forth when you want to try different things.
Floor baskets and shoe racks
Don’t waste all the floor space! You could consider floor baskets or boxes to store some items. Shoe racks are popular options as a neat, streamlined collection to organise your shoes.
You can also stack up boxes where you store your off-season clothes if you don’t need them at any given time of the year.
In most cases, people underestimate the importance of great lighting. As a result, you might end up with a walk-in wardrobe that is too dark, making it difficult to find things and get ready.
