Ditch the doors
Having an open wardrobe is becoming more and more popular, and is a great way to enjoy the ‘walk in wardrobe’ experience without taking up as much space! It’s as simple as ditching the wardrobe doors, adding a few hanging rods and/or shelves and then enjoying the beauty that is your spacious, organised closet!
Have a place for everything
If you decide to opt for an open wardrobe, everything will (quite literally) be on display, so it’s important that it all stays looking neat. You can no longer hide piles of mess in the bottom of your cupboard! Invest in some great storage options, such as drawer dividers and shoe racks, so everything has its own spot—even your underwear!
Lighting, lighting, lighting!
One mistake that is often made when installing a new wardrobe is the lack of lighting! If you have an open wardrobe, you’ll find it already creates the illusion of more space in the room. One way to further accentuate this is with great lighting—positioning your open wardrobe near a window, adding a mirror and installing some downlights will all give your wardrobe that touch of luxury.
Add a personal touch
To take your wardrobe from blah to brilliant, make sure you add your own personal touch. Whether you hang your favourite artwork on the nearby walls, add a splash of your favourite colour or glam the area up with a feature light, adding some personality will make your wardrobe pop! An added bonus: if you love how your wardrobe looks, and you enjoy spending time in the area, you’re more likely to keep everything neat!
