If you’re spending ages digging around to find your outfits every day, it may be time to update your wardrobe set-up. As decluttering is known to minimise stress, starting your day with an organised space is a sure-fire way to set yourself up for success.

Whether you already have a space in need of some attention or you’re considering converting a spare room into a fashion haven, it can be tough to know where to get started.

Follow our tips below to create the closet of your dreams.

Furniture For An Organised Walk-In Wardrobe

To get the perfect dressing room experience, you need to start with the right walk-in wardrobe furniture. Not only does built-in furniture feel like the ultimate luxury by fitting your space perfectly, but it also facilitates tidiness by giving everything its place. 

Making clever storage choices can also extend the lifespan of your clothing. Incorporate racks or pigeonholes for shoes so they aren’t in a chaotic heap and getting scuffed at the bottom of the unit. Add hooks for bags and scarves so they’re easily accessible and don’t become damaged. Stagger clothing rails for shirts and trousers, with a few bars at a higher level to keep dresses and coats from trailing on the floor and fraying. 

Make sure to include a few drawers for delicates and jumpers, which can’t be hung in the traditional way without pulling material and drastically reducing the item’s longevity.

Arrangement 

Firstly, streamline your choices by donating or selling clothing that you no longer wear. This will create space to arrange, and space your items.

Next, rearrange the order of your garments for maximum efficiency. Do this in whatever way suits you best: group clothing together so that you can grab your favourite combos, or even hang attire according to type and colour. 

Top tip: Put occasionwear in a place that isn’t as convenient to prioritise the clothing you wear more often. 

Lighting

Install lights under the cabinets and over doors. This acts as a dual purpose of impactful design, and easier view of your clothing when tightly packed. 

To create an atmosphere, add a large pendant light for a stylish feel and fit wall sconces to set a classy tone.

Decoration 

Colour has a big impact on mood. So paint walls in a neutral colour to make the room feel fresh and inviting to aid in waking up in the morning. 

An often overlooked but essential feature of a walk-in wardrobe is a full-length mirror to examine and appreciate your outfit before heading out the door. 

If you want to go the extra mile, put up some new wall décor that brings you joy as you get ready for the day.

Accessories 

Create a jewellery wall for a decorative display so you don’t get tangled and damaged necklaces. 

While not everyone’s first thought, upholstered seating adds the final touch of opulence. And it offers a practical solution for putting shoes and socks on without straining in your freshly coordinated outfit.
