Many of us dream of our very own walk-in wardrobe, who wouldn’t want all that space to fill? More space equals more clothes! With London Fashion Week now under way, here are our top tips for creating a walk-in wardrobe that even Kendall Jenner would be proud of.

  1. It’s all about shelves – custom shelving is a great way of displaying handbags, shoes and more, you’ll be amazed how much you could fit in such a small space.
  2. Make the most of alcoves and redundant space by installing a rail or using this as an extension of your walk-in wardrobe.
  3. Fit hooks inside of your cupboards for jewellery and bags.
  4. Divide your drawers – by dividing the space in your drawers you will fit much more inside of them.  Drawers are ideal for items like underwear, socks, ties and items that don’t require hanging.
  5. Don’t think you need to spend a fortune -  IKEA have a great selection of built in wardrobes if you’re a DIY expert or you can find companies who will come out and do free design visits and find the best way to utilise your space.
  6. Use the same hangers – invest in some matching hangers rather than using ones from shops, this will help make the space look much neater and things will be easier to find.
  7. Go all the way to the ceiling – even if you can’t reach this will provide you with extra storage space for other things and will look much neater.
  8. Don’t forget lighting – if there’s no natural light in the room, you may need to consider LED lighting. You could also install lights under shelving for a decadent feel.
  9. If you want to create the illusion of more space, stick to mirrored or gloss doors.
