Walk-in closets have fast become, not just a trend but also a seeming necessity for the modern home. And while, at one point, they may have been considered a luxury, they have now, more or less, evolved to become a must-have as a result of the fact that their multi-functionalities bring much needed order to your life.
Built properly, a walk-in closet can feel like a haven – inviting and opulent. They can transform your room into a magnificent suite and make that suite and, by extension, the home, feel deluxe, more attractive and more valuable.
We will look at most everything you need to know about walk-in closets- from why you need a walk-in closet to what to take note of and look out for when designing your walk-in closet as well as what to avoid.
Let’s get started!
We’ll begin with 3 reasons why you need a walk-in closet.
Walk-in closets offer the opportunity of unparalleled organisation. With the multiple shelves and drawers, they provide space for storing your clothing, shoes and accessories. Having a walk in wardrobe in your home will enable you to see everything you acquire.
Walk-in closets provide spaces with multi-functionalities. Especially when they are big enough, they double as a private dressing room, or even a space to unwind and detoxify. If it has a dressing island, that can add even more functionalities.
As a result of the open space in walk-in closets, clothes, shoes and accessories are more aerated and less susceptible to mould and mildew. A walk-in closet also means a lesser likelihood of creased clothes as a result of the fact that there’s more storage space and little probability of squeezing clothes together.
As a rule, walk-in closets must be located as close to the bathroom as is physically tenable. This reduces the physical distance to be travelled between both.
Bars, Shelves and Drawers
