Walk on in
Walk-in wardrobes are fast becoming the new dressing room, rather than being detached from the bedroom, they can be a practical (and luxurious) extension of the space.
Planning is key to creating the perfect wardrobe. “Think about how much space you’ll need for long dresses, coats and shorter items, such as shirts and jackets,” advises Ikea home furnishing specialist Billy Kane.
If you’re challenged for space or renting a place without a wardrobe, create your own dressing area with a clothes rack and a standout chair to display your favourite pieces.
A partition wall is an efficient and stylish way to differentiate the sleeping and dressing areas in a bedroom.
A walk-in robe doesn’t necessarily require built-in cabinetry. This wardrobe, constructed from galvanised steel rails and linen curtains, handmade for the design, can be as easily accessed as it can be concealed.
