Dressing up is one of the most personal of rituals and a well-designed setting can make this daily routine become a delightful experience. With more importance being placed on the wardrobe area, the design and look of this functional space should not be overlooked so that it fits cohesively with the rest of your interior scheme.
“Increasingly, we are designing wardrobe rooms as extensions of master suites,” observes Nikki Hunt, founder and principal of Design Intervention. “They are certainly not regarded as lesser spaces, and the attention to detail continues.”
Whether you’re creating a walk-in wardrobe or designing a vanity and wardrobe area within your bedroom, it’s important to get all the details right to create a space that’s fully tailored to your needs and habits. Here are our picks of everything you’ll need, for a chic and well-organised wardrobe.
1. Customise and compartmentalise
When it comes to wardrobe spaces, layout and functionality are paramount, and personalisation matters. Customise your dressing space to fit your needs perfectly; such as shelving made specially to showcase specific items such as bags or scarves, particularly if you have an extensive collection.
Kelvin and Karen Gan, co-founders of KGID, recommend the shelves to be adjustable, and to include in the cabinetry a safe for your most treasured pieces and documents.
