What Houzz contributors are saying:
Give it a purposeThe next job is to think about the purpose of your new joinery. You may want things on display or hidden from view, but make sure you consider all the options. Sometimes the most obvious choice isn’t the best one. Rather than cramming them in a rack concealed behind a door, these beautiful shoes are displayed on open shelves and add interest to the walk-in wardrobe. The shelving offers the added bonus of preventing the footwear from getting squashed, and it also keeps it well ventilated.Alternatively, if you have a tendency to be messy or prefer a streamlined look, opt for doors or drawers to conceal the internal chaos. A multi-functional piece to house many different items may require a mixture of doors, drawers and open shelving.Built-In Joinery Takes Homes to the Next Level
Kit out a cornerCommission custom-made joinery to make the most of every square inch of your home. A top landing, for instance, could provide space for a comfortable dressing area (though you might need a screen if it’s open). Built-in cupboards and shelving can be squeezed into awkward areas where off-the-shelf furniture wouldn’t fit. You can even find companies that will design a bespoke wardrobe to accommodate your exact collection of clothes, shoes and accessories, with a place for every item (and a little room to spare for those essential additions).
Located beneath a sloped ceiling, this dressing room design makes use of an odd and otherwise redundant space. Its open shelves neatly display shoes. The sleek floor-to-ceiling mirror expands the visual space when not performing its primary function of reflecting its owner, and a couch adds to the sense of relaxing space.
Keep it organisedNow that you’ve achieved a perfectly organised robe, how do you ensure it stays that way? “Dedicate an hour or so a week to staying on top of it – things such as putting washing away in the right places, folding and colour-blocking,” Randall advises. “Once you’ve experienced an organised wardrobe, chances are you’ll be more than happy to dedicate the time to keeping it looking and functioning its best.”
