Why Extra Storage Is Not the Only Reason to Get a Walk in Wardrobe

Home & Garden Blog

Walk-in wardrobes are increasing in popularity, especially for people making their homes from scratch. After all, if you can plan it to be as big as you want, why would you not add in a walk-in wardrobe? Most people see the main benefit of walk-in wardrobes as being based on storage, and that is certainly a large aspect of it. More space for clothes, shoes, old appliances and antiques that you just don't have room to keep anywhere else right now. However, extra storage is not the only reason why walk-in wardrobes are great for everyone, here are a few more factors that may sway your decision.

Separation of Wet and Dry Areas

While this doesn't apply to all walk-in wardrobes, many people have their master en suites located on the far side of them, so they have a barrier between the wet area and their bedroom. If you hate the idea of having wet carpet every now and then or feeling that humid air blown in from your bathroom after someone has had a shower then having a walk-in wardrobe between the two areas gives you that breathing space you want. It is not a huge deal, but it is the little touches that make a house a home, so why not utilise it. 

More Space in Your Bedroom

When you get a walk-in wardrobe you also get a space adjacent to your bedroom that can house a lot of the mundane aspects you might have squished into your sleeping quarters. For instance, you can keep a large mirror to check your outfits before going out, or you can have a small chair where you can sit down after a long shower or as you are putting on some especially tricky shoes. This allows your bedroom to be a much more relaxing space, with less clutter and a better atmosphere in the long run.

Clear Boundaries

When living with a partner and sharing a regular wardrobe the line can very easily blur between which area is yours and which is theirs. You might find your socks wrapped up in their shirts or spend ages looking for a pair of pants that you know you have but that you just can't locate right at this moment. Walk-in wardrobes make cohabitation much easier for everyone, with clear boundaries and a lot more room to work with.

Creating A Child-Friendly Outdoor Space

As the parent of five children, I've picked up some tips over the years when it comes to childproofing the garden and creating an outdoor space that's safe and can be enjoyed by everyone. I started focussing on safety in the garden after my first child had an accident that could have been prevented. Thankfully, they recovered pretty quickly, but I realised how easy it is for young children to get hurt when playing outdoors. I started this blog to share what I've learned as a parent, and topics I post about include creating safe swimming pools, identifying toxic garden plants, choosing child-safe gates and maintaining outdoor play equipment. I hope you find my blog interesting and useful.
