You, too, can have a dream closet with an impeccable, organized dressing area.
But before we get onto the ideas, let’s talk about the three steps you need to follow prior to picking your perfect wardrobe.

Before you remodel or buy furniture, decide on your wardrobe style. Have a definite one chosen and stick to it, to make sure your wardrobe looks cohesive.
Are you more of a contemporary or a traditional person? Do you want a wardrobe dripping in luxury, or something more understated? Will you opt for a lot of wooden fixtures, or do you prefer metal and glass?
Once you’re set on the basics of your walk-in closet, it’s time to have a look at inspiration.
Here is our selection of wardrobe ideas:
This attic conversion whips up space for a sizable walk-in wardrobe.
It features pale white cabinetry along the walls, and smart open storage solutions that make great use of ceiling height. This is achieved by installing shelves and hanging racks — these set the stage for a curated collection of clothing and accessories.
Smart shelving choices make sure every inch of wall space is used, and make this small walk-in wardrobe a highly functional space.
There’s even space for a small stool and a shelf. This can serve as a vanity area, or a place to put your accessories.
This attic wardrobe goes for a bright look by using light shades, sloped ceilings, and walls that are painted a pale pink. Together with the wood flooring, it gives the space a warm tone.
If you have the luxury of space, an island is a superb addition.

The focal point of this dream wardrobe is the island counter — a perfect spot to drop your clothes and accessories.
Islands come in all shapes and sizes. Choose one with plenty of drawers, to maximise the wardrobe storage.
Did you know? Having an island means extra storage space, so you don’t have to worry about creating clutter.
You can also add trays or boxes to the island for smaller items — jewellery, keys, and even pocket change.
There is no better way to make a walk-in wardrobe functional than to put in a seating area.
An ottoman is a perfect solution to having a dressing room you’ll enjoy using.
Because not only can you sit while you get your shoes on, you can also use it to lay outfits on.
For more storage space, choose an ottoman that opens up. You can store clothes you don’t need every day, or some sentimental items you don’t want to get rid of.
Before choosing one, think about your wardrobe shape — you want to make sure you have enough space to move around when it’s in place.
Wardrobes can never have too many mirrors.
If you have a small walk-in wardrobe, upgrade your closet door to a full-length mirror. It will reflect light into other parts of your wardrobe, making the dressing area feel more significant in size.
And not only will mirrors help in creating an illusion of a bigger space, they are a necessity when dressing up.
To make your closet go from bland to glamorous, include glass doors on shelves.
You can also go for bevelled edges and glass knobs.
Another great idea to include in your wardrobe designs is a built-in vanity.
The critical components of a vanity include:
Fact: Dressing mirrors with lights are perfect for taking your beauty routine to the next level.

The secret to beautiful custom closets? Less is more.
