Luxe! How to turn your bedroom into a walk-in wardrobe by never putting your clothes away

By  | 

Given that most of us will never own so much as a parking space, thanks to soaring house prices and the fact that none of us can afford cars to park in a parking space, the idea of having your own walk-in wardrobe seems like a far-off fantasy. At least it did… until now!

You may be renting a bedsit the other side of Greenwich, but that doesn’t mean you can’t live it up like Carrie Bradshaw. Here’s how to DIY your very own walk-in wardrobe.

1. Get a lot of clothes

They don’t need to be nice clothes, you just need a lot of them. Create the illusion of owning more clothes than you actually do by bulk buying socks and knickers from Primark.

2. Chuck out your wardrobe

That will get rid of the temptation to tidy up. If you don’t have a wardrobe, or even a chest of draws, you’re forced to think outside the box and redefine what counts as a wardrobe in the first place.

3. Arrange as you wish

While some might opt for a system of rails and racks, we imagine most will go with the humble and easy-to-achieve floordrobe. Just chuck everything on the floor. This recreates the feeling of vintage shopping, particularly as you judge most of it hideous and have to sniff test everything before wearing it.
