If you have a spare room and you’re unsure of what to do with it, why not transform it into a walk in wardrobe? If you love your clothes and want a more organized, practical way to store them, this could be just the ticket. Use these DIY tips to create one of your very own:
● Treat it Like a Small Room
Treat your walk in wardrobe like a small room rather than a wardrobe. This means you should decorate it and make it look nice. Give it a cosy, homely feel. Make it a room you’re pleased to be in! You should also keep it as tidy as possible, as you would any other room in your home. Take pride in your walk in wardrobe and it’ll look chic.
●● Use Furniture
If you’ve got the room, having furniture in your walk in wardrobe can make all the difference. You could have a small chair, stool, or even a sofa. Why not have a coffee table if you plan on flicking through magazines in there? It all depends on the look you’re going for and how you plan on using the walk in wardrobe. It can make such a difference to the decor and make it look amazing!
●●● Proper Lighting
You’re going to want to be able to inspect your clothes and outfits properly when you’re in your wardrobe, so proper lighting is a must. Have spotlights installed and a dimmer switch so you can make it as bright or as low lighted as possible. Task lighting is essential, but try to get a flattering bulb so you don’t feel like you’re in a clothes store changing room.

You’re going to want to see yourself while you’re picking and choosing what to wear, so select an appropriate mirror in your walk in wardrobe. A full length mirror will allow you to see your entire outfit, while a smaller mirror could be nice for doing your makeup, if you have the room for a dressing table. You might even want a mirror that allows you to see your outfit from every angle. It’s all about your own preferences.
●●●●● Invest in Storage and Organizers
Invest in practical storage solutions and organizers to help you get your wardrobe in the best state possible. Some custom closets allow you to select storage and organizer options that are perfect for you, so you don’t need to buy everything separately. Having everything put together and installed at the same time can save you a lot of hassle.
Turning your spare room into a walk in wardrobe could be the best thing you ever do. You could even double it up as a dressing room where you do your makeup, so it’s a place to go for the full works. Every woman’s dream! If you have experience with walk in wardrobes and would like to leave some tips, feel free to do so. Our readers would love to hear them!
