Walk in wardrobes are not only made for mansions and not just the rich people can afford it. For so many years, most people portrayed it as a luxury. But in reality, getting a customised walk in wardrobes Sydney can be affordable (that depends on your design and how big are you picturing it would be). The most important aspect is planning with your trusted local wardrobe maker or an experienced carpenter. 


Now, there's more to planning your own wardrobe than it is. As it is customised, it's your chance to give it a personal touch. So before getting right into the materials, check out this to-do list first. 


To-do list when planning your walk in wardrobe 


More than anything else, putting a character on your own personal space is a must. So don't hesitate to thoroughly discuss your wardrobe ideas with your professional carpenter. Make sure to go through the list below:


Pick the size and shape of your walk in wardrobe 

If you're planning to build a new walk in wardrobe, or you have extra huge space for it, you've got to choose the shape of your preference. There are options like L-shaped, U-shaped and I-shaped that look like a long narrow hallway. Other shapes are also available based on your liking. 


Prepare extra storage boxes or shelves for other stuff  

When you've got a lot of other stuff aside from your clothes, shoes, and bags that you want to keep organised, you have to prepare extra storage boxes or shelves for all of them. For example, your extra bed sheets, pillowcases, and duvets. One of the purposes of getting a walk in wardrobe is to keep your bedroom tidy and spacious, so all of your other stuff can be stored inside your walk in wardrobe. 


Decide on the design of your wardrobe

Do you perhaps prefer an open closet style with no doors? Or do you want it with glass doors? How about a sliding door for your separate closets? You can also choose to put curtains instead of doors. Now, whatever style or design should you choose, always consider first your budget and just the ones that you need. You can postpone the add-ons and enhancements when you have already saved more money. Check here for simple walk in wardrobe designs.


Consider putting an island or a counter 

If you have the space to cater enough area for an island or counter in the middle of your walk-in wardrobe, why not put one? Rest assured that you are not wasting this space for just a counter of some sort because you can just make other drawers out of it or additional shelves. It indeed adds a nice touch to your walk in wardrobe.


Never forget a bench or stool 

On one occasion or another, a stool can be more useful than you'd ever imagine. You can use it to reach the topmost shelf and sit on it whenever you're putting on your shoes. It could also be a kind of additional storage if you get an ottoman. Depending on your extra space, you can even put up a large bench. 


The lighting is a must

Beautiful walk in wardrobes doesn't only rely on the design itself. Sometimes, it all boils down to the littlest additional accessory on it. Good lighting, on the other hand, can set the mood in any given space. If you prefer your walk in wardrobe with sensor lights, then make sure to include it on the plan. A nice chandelier or any other overhead dangling light would give an aesthetically pleasing vibe to your wardrobe. 


Put up the mirrors of your choice 

Mirrors are a must-have accessory to a bedroom, most especially to a walk in wardrobe. Because why not? You're in your personal space. Also, you can never have too many walk in wardrobe mirrors if you must. So put a full-body mirror wherever you want it and reserve a vanity space for all your make up needs. On the other hand, not only is it a good accessory to your walk in wardrobe, but also a great light reflector. 


Achieve the wardrobe of your dreams


Thoughtful design planning and a greatly skilled carpenter makes the dream walk in wardrobe a reality. You can now enjoy organising all of your stuff inside your personal space and keep your bedroom clutter-free. Make sure to maximise all space and have it cleaned every once in a while.


Now, if you're planning on getting one, make sure to contact your carpenter first and ask for a free quote.
