How to create the wardrobe of your dreams

Date Tuesday, 29 November 2016 5:19 PM

How do you want to store your clothing?

Have you always lived in a place with a tiny wardrobe? Your clothes are constantly spilling out, making it so hard to find anything! When you build a new home design with G.J. Gardner Homes, that horrible experience will be a thing of the past.

In your very own master bedroom, you'll have the option of including a walk-in robe fit for a king. This will be more than big enough for all of your shirts, pants, shorts, jackets, bags, shoes, dresses, skirts, hats and accessories. You might even have space leftover to install some art, or fill it with more clothes you haven't bought yet.

A walk-in robe can be a whole extra room to decorate. How can you go about making this small space a paradise?

The wardrobe you've always wanted

If you ever designed your own home when you were a kid, you probably had a shark tank, an indoor pool, a spa in your bathroom and a glass roof. While some (or most) of those things are impractical for Australian life, a walk-in wardrobe like the ones you see in the movies is ideal.

A Houzz article from July 2015 showcases some of the coolest wardrobe designs from around the world. Remember, these all started as simple, small spaces with virtually nothing but drawers and clothes racks. It's how you choose to style it that makes it interesting.

You might choose to have your shoes on a shelf (or many, many shelves) to show them all off. If you have a pair of Christian Louboutins, you want to be able to see them in all their glory. You might even have your shoes on pull-out shelves on the floor - it would be much closer to your feet.

Making a cool wardrobe practical

Looking at a magazine, you'll see featured wardrobes with hardly any clothing in them. That's just not the way most people live. You've probably got shirts that you haven't even seen for a few years somewhere in your current wardrobe. Apartment Therapy suggests spring cleaning, being ruthless with your clothing, and giving anything you don't want to charity. This will also help you free up some space so your new favourite room isn't so cluttered.

If you're running out of space, put a small table in the room. This might have drawers in it, which can be used for extra storage, and you can put your favourite new items on top, like in a fancy shop.
