In the age of beauty bloggers and vloggers, the want and need for more storage space is every woman’s dream. A space to completely design and call your own, to store all of your saved-for luxury items in safely can become essential if you start to build a collection. Gone are the days of shoving your many handbags and shoes into the back of your wardrobe after you buy your first Chanel clutch and patent leather Louboutin pumps. As all fashion lovers know, luxury demands appropriate storage. Whether you are converting your spare room or expanding your cupboard wardrobe into a bigger, more luxurious one, you will want a design that suits your own personality and style needs. Below are a few tips to help you do just that.
Think About The Bigger Picture
You may only have a few luxury items at the moment, and one rail full of clothes, however, if you have a passion for fashion, or are considering building a career, your collection will grow quite significantly in a short amount of time. It is important to create more storage than you need at the moment, in order to cover your collection’s expansion. You also want to evaluate what you favour when it comes to fashion. Are you unable to walk past a sale without buying a pair of shoes, or are you more into winter coats? If you know you have a weakness, you may want to dedicate an entire section of your wardrobe to specific storage. An entire wall devoted to shoes, or a high-quality clothes rail that can endure the weight of winter coats, may be the most beneficial option for you.
Utilize Your Space
As much as every fashion lover would love to have an endless amount of space, unfortunately, a massive walk-in wardrobe is just out of price range for many of us. However, there is a way to make the most out of a space you consider to be too small. Doubling up or even tripling up on clothes rails depending on the height of your ceiling could help to fit even more items of clothing without having to squish them onto a single wardrobe rail. Looking at smart storage systems that you can completely design yourself, like a few that Ikea has to offer, will mean you are able to cater to your collection needs specifically.
Make Sure It Is Clean And Sustainable
Have you ever picked a pair of black patent heels out of your collection only to be confronted with a small layer of dust on the pointed toe? When planning how you are going to store your items, it’s a good idea to think about their personal needs. Your handbags will have dust bags to protect them, and you could invest in shoe boxes to protect your most precious shoes. Having clothing storage you can close off with sliding or cupboard doors will ensure your freshly laundered clothes stay clean and fresh for your next wear, rather than collecting dust. It will also heighten your wardrobe’s sustainability as it will be catered to protect all of your items. Making a simple choice to look into durable laminate flooring, rather than carpet, will ensure that your floor is not affected by your wardrobe being such a high traffic area. You will use your wardrobe multiple times and day and will potentially wear a multitude of different shoes, so it’s smart to have a floor that won’t show heel marks after just one use.
Hopefully, this has given you a few ideas on how you can best transform your space into a wardrobe that is fully prepared for your successful fashion future and is able to cope with the expansion of your potentially already large collection.
