Tips for Creating a Dream Walk-In Closet:
Make a Plan
It’s important to make a plan before you start. Planning is the key to making sure your closet is organized, functional and beautiful. After choosing just where you want your walk-in wardrobe to go, it’s worth looking at how you can fill the space. Note down any tight corners or spaces that might benefit from an abnormally shaped clothing storage solution.
If you’re struggling with a room that isn’t quite totally square, investing in high-quality fitted wardrobes that have been designed by furniture experts means you can make the most of your space and get a walk-in wardrobe that fits your room. And don’t be afraid to get creative with your space - you’d be surprised to see just how many different solutions there are out there for tricky nooks and crannies!
- Plan the layout of your closet. Decide on which style you want to create.
- Think about storage and organization first. This will help determine how much space you need in each section of the closet, as well as how much lighting is needed. Make sure there is enough space for all your clothing items too!
Create The Perfect Light
While you’re deciding how to light your closet, you have a few different options. The first is to use a combination of sources, like overhead lighting and task lighting (the kind that shines on the things you are working on). This approach can help you make sure that every part of the room gets the right amount of brightness.
Another option is to focus on ambient or mood lighting—that is, using lights whose sole purpose is to set the mood. You can do this with wall sconces or recessed ceiling lights; these will create a warm glow that makes it feel like home as soon as you walk through your door!
Fill your walk-in wardrobe
It’s now time to fill your walk-in wardrobe. While many people have separate wardrobes for separate pieces of clothing, popular items to fill a walk-in wardrobe with include:
- Shoes and accessories
- Jumpers and jackets
- Transitional pieces that don’t fit in one exact season
You could also use your walk-in wardrobe as a way to store seasonal pieces. For example, a place for all your big winter coats, or your swimwear and summer dresses. If you’re struggling for hanger space, doubling up on hangers is an easy hack to fit more in without taking up too much space, i.e hanging a big fur coat over an occasion dress.
Use it or Lose it
When you’re starting to create your dream closet, it can be tempting to fill it with everything that you own. But before you do, ask yourself if you actually use the items in question. If the answer is no, then take a good look at why that is and make changes accordingly.
For example: if your shoe collection is out of control and you never wear any of those shoes except for maybe one pair—it might be time for an intervention! Take those bad boys out of there and donate them (or sell them) so that your closet can breathe again.
You may need different storage solutions in your walk-in closet depending on whether or not it’s shared with someone else or just used by one person like me who doesn't really share her space with anyone else except my own husband from time-to-time.
As such, I recommend getting creative when it comes to organizing all those clothes into a functional system which helps keep things neat without feeling cramped either physically or emotionally!
Add the final glamorous touches
Last but not least, it’s time to add the final glamorous touches to your walk-in wardrobe so it rivals the iconic styles shown throughout Hollywood. Popular finishes include accent pieces, stunning yet practical lighting installations, big mirrors, and an island in the middle of your space. If you’re struggling for inspiration for the best ways to finish your walk-in wardrobe, look to celebrities and influencers who have already created similar styles in their homes.
