Walk-in wardrobes may seem like the haunt of the rich and famous, glimpsed only in repeat episodes of MTV’s Cribs or social media influencer ‘House Tour’ YouTube videos – but the opportunity of having one in your home is far closer than you might think. Walk-ins are not purely a display of wealth and extravagance; they can be a space-saving delight, a small luxury for your home and a sanctuary for you to dress well. If you have even a box room spare in your house, the following benefits could well be yours:
No Wasted Space
Stand-alone wardrobe units are clunky, space-hogging boxes relegated to a corner of your bedroom, often not the prettiest and often the source of stubbed toes on dark mornings. Conversely, walk-in wardrobes are custom-fitted to your space, making for an ergonomic, efficient space that maximises the floor space available to you, as well as freeing up crucial room in your sleeping space.
Treat Your Clothes Well
While the walk-in wardrobes you are used to seeing online might seem absurdly large, displaying more clothes than you’ve owned in your entire life, this does not mean a walk-in is too much for you. Indeed, a custom-fitted walk-in provides you with the space to store your clothes properly – keeping them in pristine condition and prolonging their life in the process. With everything visible and easy to access, you’re far less likely to lose t-shirts ‘down the back’, or find crumpled dresses that fell from a coat-hanger into obscurity.
Display Precious Items
The added space a walk-in can offer you also enables you to indulge a little yourself. You can utilise any unused shelf space to prominently display items that might be precious to you – be they watches, jewellery, sentimental items or even your expensive snap-back collection. Their placement would not only be a pick-me-up for you, but also an elegant design choice, decorating the space to feel more than purely functional.
The most shocking benefit, saved until last: in many cases, installing a custom walk-in wardrobe can be less expensive than investing in any other form of alternative – whether built-in to your bedroom or stand-alone! Far from being exclusive to the rich and famous, converting a room to be a wardrobe space may actually be cheaper than the less space-saving alternatives you’ve already tried. The custom nature of walk-ins enables you to utilise space the same way built-ins do, without sacrificing crucial bedroom space and without any potential structural work required to replace said space.
