Walk-in wardrobes – The balance between function and design

Designing a walk-in wardrobe can be a fun and exciting project, but it’s important to strike a balance between functionality and aesthetics. A well-designed walk-in wardrobe should be both practical and visually pleasing, and there are a few key considerations to keep in mind to achieve this balance.

Walk-in wardrobe


Consider the size you’re working with

First and foremost, consider the size and layout of your walk-in wardrobe. Measure the dimensions of the space and determine how much storage you’ll need based on the number of items you own. It’s a good idea to allocate more space for items you use frequently and less space for items you use less often. Consider adding shelves, drawers, and hanging rods to maximise storage and organisation.

What is the style you want to achieve?

Next, think about the overall style and aesthetic of your walk-in wardrobe. Do you prefer a modern, minimalist look or a more traditional, classic style? Choose finishes and materials that reflect your personal taste and complement the overall design of your home.

One way to add both functionality and aesthetics to your walk-in wardrobe is by incorporating custom storage solutions. Consider installing built-in shelves, drawers, and hanging rods that are tailored to your specific needs and preferences. This allows you to create a space that is perfectly suited to your wardrobe and your lifestyle.

Let’s talk about lighting

Another important element to consider is lighting. A well-lit walk-in wardrobe is essential for both functionality and aesthetics. Consider installing a mix of ambient lighting and task lighting to ensure that you can see everything clearly and easily find what you’re looking for.

Maximise shelf space

Installing shelves is a terrific way to maximise the space in contemporary walk-in wardrobes. If your budget allows, custom-built shelves are excellent, but height-adjustable shelves are an additional option. An open shelf can hold show-off items like your favourite accessories or nicely folded clothing and works best from waist height up.

Finally, don’t forget about the details. Small touches like luxurious hangers, stylish storage boxes, and even a full-length mirror can add both functionality and aesthetics to your walk-in wardrobe.
