Built-in vs walk-in wardrobe

Built-in vs walk-in wardrobe – which is best for your home?

Table of Contents

If you’re updating your home, chances are you might be considering optimising your storage space. There are plenty of options to choose from and wardrobe space is often the key area to think about. 

Built-in wardrobes and walk-in closets are both popular options and offer multiple advantages. If you’re not sure which one will suit you best, it’s a good idea to take into consideration the following factors: 

Space utilisation

Built-in wardrobes are a great way to maximise space, especially in smaller rooms which might not lend themselves to standard size furniture. As well as being made to fit awkward and tight spaces, they can be built to ceiling height, which can mean plenty of extra storage for items such as bedding. 

Walk-in wardrobes often take up more space and lend themselves to larger bedrooms. But they don’t necessarily have to be added to a bedroom. If you have unused downstairs space, such as under the stairs or in a cloakroom, a walk-in wardrobe can offer a practical solution to storage. 

Add a range of shelving and rails to make the most of your space and create a neat and tidy section dedicated to clothing, coats and shoes. 

Organisation and accessibility

While both options are practical and stylish, walk-in wardrobes offer unparallelled organisation and accessibility. Often seen as a luxury item on many people’s wish-lists, they provide ample room for getting ready in the mornings. 

Tailor your walk-in wardrobe to suit your needs and store your items so you can easily access them. It’s also a good idea to include a full-length mirror and, if you have the space, a seating area. 

Built-in wardrobes often lack accessibility so it’s important to maintain your organisation so you can easily access items. While you might not be able to browse your clothing options as you would with walk-in wardrobes, they still provide a practical option if you have limited space. 

Customisation and design

The beauty about built-in wardrobes is the ability to design a bespoke piece of furniture that works for you and your home. There are many possibilities that allow you to customise your wardrobe including adjustable shelving, mirrors, drawers and railings at different heights. 

Walk-in wardrobes are also customisable, but they might need more planning. Some people choose to build a walk-in wardrobe as part of a home extension and, if this is the case, you might need to get planning permission

Property value and appeal

As walk-in wardrobes are often considered a luxury feature, they can add value to a home and increase buying appeal. This is especially true if they’re attached to a master bedroom. However, it’s important to weigh up the cost if you’re considering adding the feature in the hope of increasing the asking price of a home.  

Whatever space you have, adding a walk-in wardrobe or built-in design provides extra storage and can enhance the style of your room. Your choice will largely depend on personal preference, budget and practicality but both options can easily be personalised.
