A Guide To Walk In Robe Designs

Walk in robe designs are often forgotten whilst building or renovating, but they can also be the key to a stylish and functional bedroom space if done well.

What we refer to as a walk in robe or a walk in wardrobe is essentially a closet space. The key features usually include enough room for a person to enter and walk around, being made to comfortably fit one one person, and is a place to store and organise all your clothes, shoes, accessories and even jewellery in an easily accessible way. Walk in robe designs are often most suitable in a larger bedroom and typically located next to – or in line with – the ensuite.

Depending on your space, budget or personal preferences, walk in robe designs can be applied to a small or a large room that has enough space for more than one person’s clothes, and can be decorated with a chair, mirror and lighting features – so what do you need to consider if you’re thinking of adding one to your new or existing home? 

What To Consider With Walk In Robe Designs 

Getting the size and space right is key to a successful walk in wardrobe – after all, it’s essentially a storage room. However, walk in robe designs also require your attention with things like colour palettes, furnishings, materials, lighting and ultimately, functionality. If you can’t swing a cat in your walk in wardrobe, then what’s the point? 

Hanging Rails – More often than not, women require more hanging space than men do. When planning hanging rails for walk in robe designs, try to include a mix of long and short spaces, and utilise corners for those jackets or dresses that only come out on special occasions. 

Let There Be Light – While it’s all well and good to have your clothes on display, what’s the point if you can’t see all of your worldly possessions properly? Don’t be afraid to get creative with your walk in robe lighting – think skylights, strips under cabinetry, and use cool over warm. 

Go Vertical – In most walk in robe designs, space is often limited – so it’s important to get creative as to how you use it. While you will of course require hanging space and draws, use narrow spaces that would otherwise be wasted for storing shoes in boxed or rolling up jumpers. 

Seamless Design – Don’t go too rogue when it comes to the overall look of your selected walk in wardrobe. While there’s of course some flexibility, try to stick with the same colour palette and materials as the rest of your home wherever possible for a seamless and slick design transition. 

Open Shelves vs Cabinetry – Start by creating an inventory of all your clothes, shoes, bags and accessories. Since some forms of storage can be more expensive than others, display things like handbags and hats out in the open to make the most of your space.

Seating Space – While not all walk in robe designs will have room for a lavish arm chair, sometimes even an ottoman or a bench under a window can be a great little space saver, or even somewhere to park up and put your shoes on. If you can, add some form of seating.

Don’t Forget A Mirror – Whether it’s on a sliding wardrobe, attached to a wall or even on the back of a door, add a full length mirror. Not only do you need a way to check out all of your outfits, but they also work wonders when it comes to creating the illusion of space.
