7 Design Tips – A Beginner’s Guide To Walk In Wardrobe Design
Designing a walk-in wardrobe requires careful consideration to maximise functionality and aesthetics. Here are seven things to look out for:
1. Layout and Space Planning:
• Assess the available space and layout to determine the most efficient design for your walk-in wardrobe. Leigh Robinson can help you with this.
• Optimise storage by incorporating hanging rods, shelves, drawers, and shoe racks based on your wardrobe needs.
• Allow for clear pathways and easy access to different sections of the wardrobe.
2. Storage Solutions:
• Choose a mix of storage options like hanging space and accessories, shelves, and drawers to accommodate different types of clothing, accessories, and footwear.
• Consider specialised storage features like pull-out racks, adjustable shelving, and built-in organisers for ties, belts, jewellery drawers, and other accessories.
• Install proper lighting to ensure visibility and create an inviting ambiance.
• Use a combination of ambient, task, and accent lighting to illuminate different areas of the walk-in wardrobe.
• LED strip lights, pendant lights, and well-placed ceiling fixtures can enhance the overall lighting design.
Although we don’t provide a lighting service it’s important to get the best lighting for your walk in wardrobe.
4. Mirror Placement:
• Incorporate mirrors strategically to help with outfit selection and to create a sense of space.
• Full-length mirrors, mirrored closet doors, and mirrored panels can add functionality and visual appeal. We even have a pull out mirror that you can install.
5. Material Selection:
• Choose visually appealing colours for shelving andcabinetry if it suits you. White is our most popular colour but there are plenty of colours to choose from including wood grain finishes.
• We can also help you with wardrobe doors in glass, acrylic and melamine combinations to match your bedroom decor.
6. Accessibility and Ergonomics:
• Design with accessibility in mind, ensuring that items are within reach and that there’s enough space for comfortable movement.
• Adjust shelf heights and hanging rods to accommodate different clothing lengths and sizes.
• Incorporate pull-out features and soft-close mechanisms for drawers and cabinet doors to enhance usability.
7. Small or Big:
If you have the space go big but don’t be put off if you only have a tiny space to work with. We can help you once you have made the decision to get your clothes and accessories organised in to a functional but visually pleasing walk in wardrobe.
Remember that your walk-in wardrobe design should reflect your personal style and meet your specific storage needs. Working with Leigh Robinson can help ensure that your vision is translated into a functional and aesthetically pleasing space.
