Top Tips For Designing The Perfect Walk-In Wardrobe

Updated: Jul 10

Having a walk-in wardrobe is undoubtedly the height of luxury, and one of the perks of getting a loft conversion is that you have the opportunity to design the new space exactly as you want it. So, if you dream of having a walk-in wardrobe, why not let Econoloft bring that dream to life for you?

Before incorporating this feature into your loft conversion, it is essential to determine if it is truly necessary and evaluate your current wardrobe. Is it worth compromising space in other areas for a lavish closet? If the answer is yes, then carefully consider the specific style of walk-in space you want.

Separate Space

If you're considering a walk-in wardrobe for your loft conversion, Econoloft can help you design the perfect space. Depending on the available space, we can create a separate room connected to the master bedroom. However, keep in mind that you may need to sacrifice some square footage in the sleeping area or even give up an ensuite bathroom. When planning your walk-in wardrobe, think about how you want to display your garments. Will you prefer rails and hangers or folded items on display? Consider the number of built-in drawers you'll need and whether you require additional space for accessories like hats, shoes, and handbags. Lastly, don't forget to include a full-length mirror for those final outfit checks.

Make Use Of Sloping Ceilings

If you're lacking space for a separate room, don't worry! Take advantage of the charming nooks and crannies that come with an Econoloft loft conversion. Transform the space under the sloping roof into your very own walk-in wardrobe. By utilising stud walls and installing customised wardrobe doors, you can optimise the available area and cleverly achieve the walk-in wardrobe experience without sacrificing too much of your loft's other elements.

Divide Your Room With Floor To Ceiling Wardrobes

A clever trick for creating a walk-in wardrobe is to construct a stylish divider or stud wall within the room, concealing the wardrobe space behind it. This ingenious design not only maximises the available space but also creates a hidden oasis where you can freely navigate to select your favourite outfits and accessories. Visitors may be completely unaware of its existence, but it adds a touch of brilliance to your wardrobe space, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the experience.

A few things to consider:

  • If you're looking to save some money, consider opting for shelves and storage boxes instead of lots of fitted drawers. Not only are they a more affordable option, but they also provide a versatile and customisable storage solution for your walk-in wardrobe.

  • Consider incorporating distinctive door handles that will add to the luxurious feel of your walk-in wardrobe.

  • Pegboards offer a budget-friendly solution for organising all your makeup, hair accessories, and other small items that we accumulate over time.

  • Proper lighting is essential when selecting your outfits, and luckily, a loft conversion provides lots of natural light. However, if your walk-in wardrobe lacks natural light, ensure you have enough spotlights to accurately see the colours you're wearing.

  • Don't forget to include electrical outlets in your walk-in wardrobe design, allowing you to conveniently style your hair or iron your clothes in your stunning new space.
