Most people have a lot of clothes to begin with, and keep accumulating over time. Yet finding the right piece of clothing for the right occasion is often a hassle, due to the chaos it’s lost in.
Well, worry not, because there is a perfectly good solution to this dilemma and that is a beautifully designed walk-in wardrobe. Imagine going straight to that skirt or pair of jeans you want to wear without rummaging through clutter or battling with coat hangers. And it isn’t just the time you save that is well worth the investment; there are other benefits too. In spite of ironing them, clothes still get creased. When piled together with no ventilation, they also develop a musty odour. But when stored right in a spacious walk-in wardrobe, you won’t have to worry about any of this.
Here are five reasons to invest in a walk-in wardrobe and get the most out of your investment:
- Walk-in Wardrobes Are More Practical:
The practicality that comes with a walk-in wardrobe can change your lifestyle by bringing a sense of order and organisation that can lessen the stress of the morning work / school run. A walk-in wardrobe allows for several extra compartments and shelves that offers a separate section for everything and therefore helps save time sorting. Having more space at hand, one could add a folding table with storage options underneath. One could also indulge in a makeup or dressing area with ambient lighting and full-length mirrors. These inclusions would not just organise your wardrobe space but also add an aesthetic value to your bedroom.
- Walk-in Wardrobes Protect Your Clothes
Wardrobes need ventilation to prevent mold and mildew which can ruin your clothes or make them smell stale and musty. Wardrobes with closed doors don’t let much air in, but a well-designed walk-in will solve that problem. If your bedroom has an ensuite, moisture can remain trapped inside regular wardrobes. However, a walk-in wardrobe will allow the moisture to flow through the bedroom instead and evaporate. If you install a walk-in wardrobe in your bedroom, you’ll notice how your clothes smell fresher than before. This is good for a lot of fabrics, especially leather which needs to breathe. Your clothes will also not be crushed in a walk-in and will remain smooth as well as fresh after ironing.
- Walk-in Wardrobes Can Be Cost-Effective
You might be surprised to find that in many cases it’s cheaper to install a walk-in wardrobe than a built-in or regular style. It depends on the design, but one of the biggest cost savers is that there are no doors. Wardrobe doors can be expensive, especially if installed with mirrors, glass and designer handles. You might need less structural work for the installation of a walk-in since many are built into spaces that are unused.
- Walk-in Wardrobes Can Save Floor Space
Walk-in wardrobes don’t take up space the way regular wardrobes do and it’s mainly because there are no doors opening out. Walk-ins also take up less space than built-ins or regular wardrobes with sliding doors. The reason is that they can make use of areas that are irregular in shape and can’t be used for anything else; therefore going to waste. A walk-in wardrobe can be designed as per the shape you desire like square, L-shaped or slanted and it doesn’t have to comply with the shape of sliding or hinged doors. By choosing the best design for your walk-in, you can improve your bedroom layout and transform it into an inviting, stylish and comfortable retreat.
- Walk-in Wardrobes Add Value For Reselling
Walk-ins wardrobes are in high demand, especially in new homes, because they’re more luxurious, practical, and functional than most built-in or free standing wardrobes. If you’re renovating an existing home or building a new one, a walk-in wardrobe is definitely something to be considered in the plan. And when you’re considering selling, a well-designed walk-in wardrobe will enhance your home’s appeal to potential buyers.
