Closet Envy: Turn Your Storage Room Into A Chic Walk-In Wardrobe

If you ask any woman what her number one choice would be on an interior wish list, the likely answer is a walk-in wardrobe. We have Sex in the City’s Carrie Bradshaw to thank for this obsession. However, just because you spotted your first walk-in wardrobe on television, doesn’t mean that this is only a room for fiction or the famous. You can easily turn a storage room into a chic walk-in wardrobe.

The main difficulty people have when turning their store room into a wardrobe space is that it doesn’t live up to their luxurious ideals. They feel as if they have a cheap version of their dream room. But don’t worry, if you use the following tips you can easily achieve the boutique feel you are looking for.

Add a plush chair and a mannequin.

The combination of a plush chair and a mannequin achieves the perfect boutique-feel. The mannequin offers a quirky and high fashion accessory. Whilst the swanky chair brings the luxury and comfort experienced when shopping in a high-end store. Don’t hold back when it comes to the seating area; this presents you with the perfect opportunity to incorporate vibrant colours and loud prints if you wish to do so.

Jewellery organiser.

Keeping your jewellery organised can be a nightmare at the best of times. There’s nothing worse than necklaces tangling together or a missing earring. Thankfully investing in a jewellery organiser can solve all of these problems and it can give your walk-in wardrobe a lavish edge too.

A chandelier.

Nothing says glamour and luxury like a chandelier. This is a must-have accessory for any boutique-style walk-in wardrobe. Any other type of light would look out of place as nothing lives up to the sheer intricate beauty of a chandelier.

Valet rods.

What makes a walk-in wardrobe so great is the fact that it plays around with different dimensions and methods of storing. One of the most important things you need to do is make sure you show off some of your clothing. Pick out some of your dazzling dresses and display them around the room via using a valet rod.

Keep it centred.

The biggest mistake people make when designing their walk-in wardrobe is that they try to overcomplicate things. A central point ensures that organisation is kept and it looks really classy too.

Don’t neglect the walls.

Because your walk-in wardrobe is going to be filled to the brim with garments, accessories, shoes, and alike, it can be very easy to forget about the walls. This is even more so the case if you have colourful clothing taste. But you should never leave your walls as a blank canvas. Opt for an inviting yet soothing colour.

Mirrored wardrobes.

What use is a walk-in wardrobe if you can’t see what you look like? When you go to a boutique and you try on clothing there is usually a vast selection of mirrors available for you to look at yourself in. A mirrored wardrobe like this one is not only practical but it creates a statement piece in the room too.

Laundry cabinet.

There’s nothing that can detract from your chic and boutique-feel more than dirty clothes sprawled all around the room. A laundry cabinet is the easiest way to tackle this problem. You can neatly move dirty clothes out of the way and the sleek design of the cabinet ensures nobody knows what it is.
