40 Walk In Wardrobes That Will Give You Deep Closet Envy

A walk in wardrobe is an aspirational aspect of home design–especially when it is one that is spacious, well organised and kitted out with a closet system that is as stylish as the clothing collection it holds. This collection of 40 custom walk in wardrobe designs show just how luxurious these tucked away spaces can be made to feel. Our curated gallery of designs feature beautiful finishes, attractive accent pieces, both stunning and practical lighting installations, and extensive closet organisation ideas. Find inspiration to maximise the potential of small hidden away bedroom closets and large dedicated dressing rooms alike, with ideas to fit all kinds of aesthetics, colour schemes, and budgets.

Create a focal point. If you have the space to hang statement lighting inside your walk in wardrobe, then a large ring pendant will create an impressive and practical circle of illumination. You might not be about to invite guests into your closet, but designing a luxury wardrobe is about creating a beautiful space that you’ll simply adore walking into time and again.

Include a vanity table in your layout, and team it with a colourful vanity chair. In this example, the same shade of blue is echoed in a small pouf on the other side of this closet to carry the theme through.

Visualizer: Red Bureau  

Stack your storage to the rafters. If you have high ceilings then put all that extra height to good use. The upper sections can be used for out of season clothes, special occasion outfits, or just for bedding.

Merge a walk in/walk through wardrobe with an ensuite bathroom or bathroom vanity area. Everyone knows the merry dance of moving between bathroom and closet area when dressing for the day or for bed, so why not make life easier.

A vanity mirror over the dresser is great, but do install a full length mirror–or two–for that all around outfit check.

Rethink your space. You may not think that you have the space for an impressive walk in, but a deep alcove with sliding doors added across can fashion the perfect nook. Add a modular closet system to create a custom layout of rails and shelves to suit your specific needs.

Visualizer: Marina Vanteeva  

Want a walk in closet as daring as your fashion sense? Paint a bright pop of colour behind the rails, and get imaginative with personal touches–like the unique flash of graffiti across this illuminated mirror.

If neutrals are more your comfort and relaxation zone, then keep your head clear with uniform wooden units and a soft grey rug to cosy up the floor. A small indoor plant will freshen the palette.

Visualizer: Nika Vorotyntseva  

Add an island of drawers, and accentuate it with a large modern chandelier.

Visualizer: Abeer Ewais  

Pink accents push the envelope on colour without distracting too boldly from the clothing choices on offer.

Visualizer: Spotless Agency  

A mirrored vanity area at the end of a narrow room will make the space look wider.

Visualizer: Pham Ngoc  

A mirrored ceiling also promotes the feeling of open space, as do glass doors.

Visualizer: Ahmed Shehta  

Build a closet around the edges of a bedroom lounge area to borrow natural daylight and the view, rather than being locked away. Slab front sliding doors will camouflage the cupboards when not in use.

Include seating near shoe storage; it will save you hopping around later.

Variety is the spice of life, and essential when putting together the most effective closet system. Make sure you include enough drawers, shelves, rails and cubbies to organise every type of garment and accessory.

On a budget? A bespoke closet layout with made-to-measure accessories doesn’t have to cost the earth when there are modular systems available from a certain Swedish furniture store.

Visualizer: Spotless Agency  

Include a little art as an elegant final touch.

Visualizer: STUDIA 54  

Light it up. Chandeliers, illuminated garment rails and backlit shelves; all are welcome.

Visualizer: Katie Domracheva  

Keep dust off designer pieces by putting doors across your collection. Clear glass doors will allow you to peruse and appreciate. Accessorise the space with decorative vases to continue the glassy effect.

Visualizer: Nguyễn Thủy  

An ottoman in the centre of a walk in wardrobe is a great idea for when trying on shoes or laying down outfit choices. A storage bench is an even better choice to maximise space.

Closets are quiet with no outside distractions, so why not incorporate a reading area in there too?

The wraparound. This layout allows the owner to take full advantage of incoming natural light. In the evenings, a designer table lamp is on hand to lighten the selection process.

Visualizer: Stanislav Ananev  

When no windows are present, consider the possibility of a skylight.

Breathing space. With all garments encased in tinted glass cabinets, there is space to breathe.

Visualizer: Marina Vanteeva  

Pull-out garment rails make practical use of high places.

Visualizer: TOL’KO interiors  

A closet that’s behind two closets.

Visualizer: Antonovich Design  

Double level wardrobe anyone?

Visualizer: 3D Design VN  

Clean and serene. Pale grey units and soft lighting make an inviting space you’ll want to spend time in.

Architect: Walker Workshop  

Use accessory storage boxes to pull in an accent colour.

Visualizer: Zooi  

Black units present a sophisticated aesthetic with a masculine air.

Visualizer: Fine Design  

Push hanging rails all the way into corners to avoid wasting valuable space.

Visualizer: Thomas Chadail  

Let the bedroom inspire the closet colour scheme.

Visualizer: Thanh Hang Vu  

A well placed chaise lounge chair just oozes luxury.

Visualizer: Thanh Hang Vu  

Add glitz and glamour with golden touches.

Visualizer: DE&DE Studio  

Split the difference. Use a split colour paint effect to add interest, to split a shared closet space between two partners, or to visually separate your work wardrobe from your casual collection.

Visualizer: DVOETOCHIE design bureau  

Candy coloured cabinets–is there anything sweeter? Add black base notes to anchor the look, like the swivel chair, black chandelier and storage boxes in this example.

Visualizer: 荣 烨  

More pastel coloured inspiration.

Visualizer: Idol Design  

Mirrored base units increase the sense of floor space.

Visualizer: Zrobym Architects  

If fashion is your career or hobby, then why not include a desk in your walk in so that you can work in your most inspirational place?

Visualizer: Home D  

Light box love. Light boxes create the feeling of a window inside a windowless closet, and provide super bright shelving illumination.
