Having a walk-in wardrobe is a dream that most of us have but think we will never achieve. However, with a good amount of space available, some clever fittings and a lot of patience, you could make your dream a reality. We often view walk-in wardrobes as luxury items that most people never have; however, they are rapidly becoming a trend that more and more people are following!
If you have a budget saved up for it then installing a walk-in wardrobe could transform your home completely and be just the bedroom upgrade you've been looking for. With that in mind, here are some great ways that a walk-in wardrobe could be the ideal bedroom upgrade for you.
Making the most of space
We all have unused spaces in our homes that end up becoming storage areas or are just left to gather dust. So, why not make the most of the extra space by utilising it for a walk-in wardrobe? If you have a small spare room next to your bedroom then it could make the ideal space for a walk-in wardrobe. If you would prefer a smaller walk-in wardrobe then you could consider extending your bedroom a little bit to encompass more space on the landing or some space from another room. This allows you to utilise unused space and also declutter your bedroom because you can move all your clothes, shoes and accessories into the walk-in wardrobe.
Greater convenience for you
Having a walk-in wardrobe means that you can properly organise all your clothes and shoes so that you can view everything easily and pick out outfits. By having a hanging area for clothes, separate shelves for shoes and some elevated shelves for your accessories, you make the most of the walk-in wardrobe space while also making it more convenient for yourself to find everything. It's good for your clothes to have the extra space as well because it avoids them being pressed together for long periods of time and getting creased or too much moisture. This means that you won't have to worry about any of your clothes developing mould or bad smells, nor will you have to iron something every time you take it out of the wardrobe.
Easy To Use
A walk-in wardrobe goes beyond acting as a simple storage unit. You can make the most of the extra space by using it to dress, which could help speed up your morning routine. You could install a mirror inside the walk-in wardrobe so that you have somewhere to do hair, makeup and check how your clothes look. The added privacy of having a separate changing space is also nice if you live with other people and don't want to take up space in the shared areas. And if you have different collections that you would like to display, such as hats or shoes, then a walk-in wardrobe can easily accommodate that.
Doesn’t have to be expensive
We have the misconception idea that walk-in wardrobes must be expensive. While its true that not every home could hold a walk-in wardrobe as space can become an issue, there are some cheap options online. Check out Online Bedrooms for example, they provide affordable walk-in wardrobes with no minimum order value and 15 years guarantee. Just follow their guides to measure your space and ask for a quotation based on your budget.
You can install it yourself
A chunk of your renovation budget will usually go towards paying for delivery and installation, so creating a DIY walk-in wardrobe will save you some money, though it will take more time and patience. After the hard work of installing the shelf fittings and clothing hangers, you can purchase boxes or baskets that go with the style of your walk-in wardrobe for easy storage. For those who are creative, a walk-in wardrobe offers unlimited potential for DIY interior design as well. You can display artwork on the walls, choose the light fixtures as you wish and change the whole feel of the wardrobe by adding some colour and different styles. If money is something that puts you off then installing the walk-in wardrobe yourself will leave you with more of a budget to purchase the things to go inside it.
Less work to clean
The walk-in wardrobe space is convenient and easy to clean because you can just tidy up after yourself and not have to dedicate to cleaning cramped spaces like you would have to with a regular wardrobe. As mentioned earlier, the increased ventilation of a walk-in wardrobe means that you won't have to worry about scrubbing mould or working to make the space smell fresh. If you are looking to clear out some old clothes and shoes then the spacious walk-in wardrobe allows you to easily locate and separate everything, as well as giving you somewhere to store the bags until you can donate them.
A long-term investment
While installing a walk-in wardrobe means that you can make full use of it, it will also benefit you if you should come to sell your house. As it is a home improvement project, a custom walk-in wardrobe could give your house extra value to potential buyers. By utilising unused space in your house you are ridding it of any awkward spaces and cluttered storage rooms, allowing you to show off more of the house to potential buyers.
If you have the time and money to invest into it then a walk-in wardrobe could be the ideal bedroom upgrade for you. It will completely transform your bedroom and customise your home, as well as boosting the value of your house. Everyone deserves a bit of luxury and the time and effort you put into creating a walk-in wardrobe will be worth it if it is something that you really want.
We've all considered a walk-in wardrobe, but not as many of us dedicate to actually installing one. With these suggestions for how a walk-in wardrobe could be the ideal bedroom upgrade for you in mind, you are one step closer to making your dream a reality.
