6 wardrobe ideas that will give you more hanging space (without taking up the whole room)

Storage can be as stylish as your clothing.

DREAMING OF A walk-in wardrobe but lacking in space? We’ve searched high and low on Instagram for some efficient wardrobe ideas that will (almost) do the same job. No wardrobe malfunctions here.

Branch out: If you’re the neat and tidy type then a minimalist design that involves one hanging rail, might just work for you. It will let you display all of you favourite pieces and give the impression of a walk-in wardrobe instantly. We love how @theminimalistwardrobe incorporates this beautiful branch.

Find similar wooden clothing racks on Etsy.

Blend in: A wardrobe that colour matches your walls will create uniformity and the illusion of more space as it blends in seamlessly and won’t stick out like a sore thumb. A mixture of closed and exposed compartments, like @lindagaaso has here, brightens up the space by adding contrast, too.

Komandor specialise in bespoke wardrobes that will take your space into account.

Master bedroom 🙏 Vi ønsket åpen garderobeløsning og utnyttelse av takhøyden på 3 meter, så da ble det Ikeahack av Nordli-kommodene. Alle vegger er malt i Sophisticated Blue - sover så utrolig godt i mørkt soverom 💙 Det gjenstår litt detaljer før rommet føles helt "ferdig", men dette er unektelig et av yndlingsrommene i heimen. . . . . . #wardrobe #bedroomdecor #bedroomdesign #bedroominspo #masterbedroom #ikeahack #mywardrobe #wardrobegoals #diywardrobe #walkinwardrobe #bedroomdesigns #wardrobedesign #wardrobeinspo #soveromsinspo #openwardrobe #garderobeskap #klesskap #colourmyhome #fargertilfolket #darkinteriors #darkinteriorstyle #sophisticatedblue #apartmenttherapy #interiorwarrior #interior_delux #myinteriorvibe #interiørtips #tuesdayinspo #ourluxuryhome #interior_and_home

The right angle: If you can’t get your mind off a walk-in wardrobe, choose to use space wisely. A corner wardrobe will cleverly zone your bedroom and create that walk-in effect. @asyotiman uses the corner well and incorporates plenty of hanging space; perfect for those who need to suit up regularly.

Find a wide choice of corner solutions on SlideGlide.ie.

Screen dream: If a whole new room is off the cards then look at investing in a room divider. Here, @thebeyondkoncepts uses a large crittall screen to create an impressive walk-in wardrobe that saves on space. We love the addition of the curtain for any quick outfit changes, too.

D&R Design are your go-to for indoor crittall room dividers.

Room for two: Many wardrobes need to accommodate two people, so a side each with enough space to hang everything is a must. @irenejordan.asesoriadeima maintains symmetry that’s sure to avoid any ‘how come you have more space than me?’ arguments.

For a large wardrobe that should easily accommodate two, look to IKEA.

Feature wall-to-wall: If clothes are important to you then why not make your wardrobe a real feature? This one might require the most investment but we love how @tunahankoca emphasises closet space through the use of compartments that light up in this richly textured bedroom. Keeping it orderly might be the next challenge, though.

See a Capital Bedrooms and Kitchens for a choice of large fitted wardrobes that can cover the wall.
