Walk-in Closets 101

“I like my money where I can see it… hanging in my closet.” – Carrie Bradshaw

I think at some point in life, every fashion or decor conscious teenager or even adult has wanted a walk in closet in their bedroom. I think for me, I started wanting one after watching The Princess Diaries 2 and seeing Princess Mia’s. I remember being almost as excited as she was about it. I mean, best friend jumping out of the wardrobe? remote controlled chests of drawers? Who wouldn’t want that?

OF COURSE the remote controlled chest of drawers freaked me out. Still closet #goals (sorry). No joke.

Obviously looking back now, I realise there are much better closets but I was like 8 then.

Besides the convenience of having every thing on display, I feel like walk in closets are often associated with some level of glamour and fabulousity (is that a word?). We see them in magazines, movies, tv shows and want them. I mean, the idea of basically having a show room dedicated to your clothes and accessories sounds awesome.

Also, for someone like me who tends to forget things I have if I don’t see them from time to time, it is a pretty convenient way of making sure you make good use of what you have and not stick to the same things.

Wow. 

There are a number of things to consider when you want to have a walk in closet built especially in relation to the size and how much clothing items and accessories you have. There’s no point in having a large closet when the things you have can fit into a room two times smaller. No offence but you really don’t want it to look like there’s a clearance sale going on in your closet. So size up what you have and have it built accordingly.

However, If you do want a large closet but cannot fill it up, it can be possible to have just enough space built to carry what you have and turn the room into a closet/ dressing room with the addition of chairs – a chaise lounge for example, large mirrors (very necessary) or a vanity table so it doesn’t seem so huge and empty.
