Very few Singaporeans are lucky enough to have space set aside for a full-sized walk-in closet. But if you are one of them, here are 5 steps to making it the dream-come-true you know it’s supposed to be:
1. Perfect moderation of open and closed
The first step to ensure that your closet space is going to be extremely versatile and fully functional is by managing the open and closed storage. Often times homeowners unconsciously prefer one over the other and then have difficulty finding proper spaces in the aftermath. So always make sure that the ratio of closed to open storage is proportional to your needs.
2. Go for a modular set-up
It’s always better to install your walk-in closets with a modular storage system than a fully permanent one. In-built wardrobes are all well and good, but what happens when you need some flexible space for a new trend that just doesn’t fit into the old-school armoire version? You’d rather not know, so it’s recommended to opt for adaptable modular storage for such reasons.
3. Open hanging for fashionistas
There are many different variations of female clothing – maxi dresses, jumpsuits, pencil skirts, stylish shirts, blouses, jeans, and many, many more. All of them vary in length and build, so a modular hanging system can work in your favor. Another benefit of opting for an open hanging system of such a variety is that it allows you to ponder your clothing choices with ease – no mre riffling through a closed off wardrobe.
4. The overall ambiance
Just like any interior space, the ambiance of the walk-in closet matters a lot. You want to make it feel homely and personal, but it’s also great if you can maintain that retail vibe within the whole space as well. You’ll also need to invest in some awesome lighting and mirrors to complete the whole experience. Every venture within the closet will feel like a retail therapy trip.
5. Invest in good flooring
The flooring of your walk-in closet is important. You cannot opt for full-on glossy tiles. Instead, opt for either matt textured porcelains or vinyls. This way, you can prance around the space without the fear of slipping. You can even install a small rug in the middle for the sake of the ambiance.
