We all dream of owning a luxurious walk-in wardrobe where we can store our entire collection of clothes, shoes, bags and what not. But why do we hesitate? Space — or the lack of it — is the biggest obstacle when it comes to planning walk-in closets. But ask yourself this: do you really need a completely demarcated area or room to turn into a walk-in wardrobe? Maybe not. We share 5 amazing ideas to design a walk-in wardrobe inside the bedroom itself — no walls or extra room required! Check them out.

#1: Just Use a Lattice Divider

A wooden lattice screen is like playing peek-a-boo

So you have your heart set on the IKEA Pax wardrobe system and you want to place it inside your bedroom. Why not turn it into an open walk-in wardrobe zone? All you need to do is place the open wardrobe against the wall and install a lattice divider between the bed and the wardrobe. That’s it, and your walk-in closet is ready!

#2: Create an Elevation

Use LED strips on the steps

Dividing your bedroom into two halves is a great way to make space for a dressing- area-cum-walk-in-wardrobe. You can achieve this look by creating an elevated space for the bed with the help of steps. Wooden flooring is the ideal choice to get the look right. The other half will be your walk-in closet designated area, with storage space on either side and a dressing unit right in the middle.

#3: How About a U-Shaped Wardrobe?

Open shelves on the wardrobe for convenience

Instead of opting for an L-shaped wardrobe, which is the most common choice for bedrooms, you can go for a U-shaped wardrobe. This will create the illusion of having a walk-in wardrobe. The extra column of storage cabinets will act as the divider and you can easily get dressed behind it. Isn’t this a clever idea?

#4: A Compact Walk-In Wardrobe Inside the Bedroom

Whoever said compact bedrooms cannot accommodate a walk-in wardrobe needs to be corrected. Look at this pretty walk-in closet complete with the Hollywood-style, full-length mirror and a cosy rug in front of it. Open wardrobes/storage cabinets are placed facing each other to make a galley sort of area.

Remember to omit the shutters if you are designing a walk-in wardrobe in a compact bedroom.

#5: Sliding Doors to the Rescue

Try trendy patterns like terrazzo

So you are not someone who likes to keep things in the open. Or you just prefer a room for your closet but do not have a spare one. We hear you. All you need to do is create a small room inside your bedroom with the help of partition panels and a sliding door. Your walk-in wardrobe is now available right next to you and you did not have to empty a room to do so.

Make sure to add interesting design details, like the terrazzo pattern we have added here on the panels.
