Going mainstream to make the most of the space
When I first read the details for our house, the master bedroom having a walk-in wardrobe was tantalising. A real wow factor. The reality was a bit disappointing – the door for the room hit the main bedroom door and because of sloped ceilings, there was no real room.
I took out the single hanging rack and put in a wheeled dual rack which gave easy access to the back which allowed the depth of the space to be accessible. Ironically, when we started having people in to fit the whole room, they all said to take the walls out and build in cupboards.
Crazy idea, but that is indeed what we did. Opening up the space made room for a bench opposite the cupboards. The double wardrobes are extra deep, allowing plenty of storage for shoes, bags and hats, behind full length hanging. I have a ball gown in there without effort.
Losing the wall meant the tight corridor we had is now a light filled area. We made use of the electrics for the walk-in to provide LED lighting in the cupboards and a light for the walk way. An oak mirror and the bench means you have somewhere to sit and remove your shoes and air them without causing a trip hazzard.
I love it, who’d have thought going more mainstream would improve life and storage options so much?
