How to design and maximise your walk-in wardrobe


If you’re thinking of revamping your bedroom and you have some extra space, consider designing a walk-in wardrobe!Walk-in wardrobes are the answer to your storage prayers. They’re your bedroom sanctuary, a place strictly for order and organisation. When designing your walk-in wardrobe, consider playing around with both shelving and drawers. Think about the functionality, your personal style, and take advantage of every inch of your space. 

Here are some tips to help guide you to maximise and design your new walk-in wardrobe. 

Clothing Rails 

The amount of space we need in our wardrobe varies from one person to another. But there is one thing that often rings true, women require more hanging space than men. 

We highly recommend mixing long and short hanging options when designing your wardrobe. Cabinetworx clothing rails are customisable to suit your storage needs and are designed based on the available space. Having different levels also means you can conveniently display all your clothes. 


Drawers are one of the most important elements for walk-in wardrobe designs. They offer a home for smaller clothing articles like your underwear or sock and foldable accessories. Drawers can transform any space into a well-organised and functional area. When choosing your drawers, ensure they’re wide enough so your clothes aren’t squashed on the slides. 

Open shelves 

If you’re someone with a busy life, convenience is essential. Open shelving units offer you quick and easy access to your clothes. At a glance, you’ll know where everything is and won’t be faced with the problem of “out of sight, out of mind.” We recommend using open shelving to store folded jumpers and shirts. It’s the perfect option for displaying handbags and accessories.
