How to plan a new wardrobe layout design

If you’re lucky enough to have plenty of space for a walk in wardrobe, you should have ample space for your clothes, shoes and accessories.

But even with a large wardrobe, if the design isn’t great, you won’t be making the best use of the space. No matter what the size of your wardrobe, you need the right layout design to be able to fit everything in.

Here are 4 tips to help you with your new wardrobe layout design.

  1. Shelves are perfect for folded jumpers, pants and shirts, and work best when they are easily accessible. Set them at a height from your waist upwards – but not too high that you can’t reach them. They are an economical choice because there is no need for a drawer and it’s mechanisms, and can be adapted to suit any width and height you have available.
  2. Hanging rails. In general, women will need more hanging space than men because of long items such as dresses and skirts that need to be hung up. A mixture of long and short hanging space is recommended for dresses and delicate tops and shirts. If you find your hanging space ends up in a difficult to reach corner, this can be used to store items that you don’t wear very often.
  3. Drawers are a must in a wardrobe to keep your private items, like underwear, that you don’t want to display on an open shelf! They are great for small items like socks, ties and scarves, and the use of drawer dividers can keep everything neat and organized within your drawers.
  4. Shoe racks. Narrow space at the bottom of your wardrobes is an ideal space to install a couple of shoe racks. These pull out and allow you to see your shoes, and avoids the inevitable shoe jumble that happens when you have your shoes on an open shelf.

Other things to try and include in your wardrobe design are a full-length mirror, storage boxes for the top shelves you won’t access very often, and adequate lighting so you can find what you’re looking for.
