People often think that having a walk-in wardrobe requires lots of square footage or purpose-built space, but it’s actually possible to create a small walk-in wardrobe that provides plenty of storage space.

As long as you can spare at least 1.4m in depth, your walk-in wardrobe can be just about any width. Any shelving or fitted units can then be added to the interior to give you an elegant and spacious storage solution.

Depending on the space you’re working with, you may have to do a bit of DIY work, but for most spaces it’s likely to be minimal. For example, if have a room that is long and narrow, you can easily fit wall-to-wall sliding wardrobe doors at one end.

If you don’t want wall-to-wall wardrobe doors, or the space is very wide, you may need to put up a partition wall to create the perfect space. By doing this, you have complete control over the size and shape of your wardrobe.

The first step to creating a small walk in wardrobe that suits your budget, style and space is to do plenty of research. Looking at a range of designs and layouts will help you decide:

What style of wardrobe door you like

  • How many walls you’d like to store clothes against
  • The type of wardrobe interiors you prefer
  • How you can make the most of your space
