A walk in wardrobe: Dream come true

I know every girl dreams of having a walk-in wardrobe like Carrie Bradshaw’s from Sex and the City movie but not everyone can have Mr Big in her life who will surprise her with a wardrobe as big as a one bedroom apartment.

Actually, it may not be only a woman’s dream to have a walk-in wardrobe, what about the sneakers wardrobe of Turtle from Entourage. BTW, Entourage is one of my favourite series  :).

I am sure in many of my previous posts I have mentioned how I would love to have a walk-in wardrobe. The fasionista inside me always dreamed of opening a door and seeing all her clothes and shoes nicely hanging from floor to ceiling in a walk in wardrobe.

As you, all know, I have moved recently to a bigger place and one of the things I got in this new place is a walk-in wardrobe. 😀 Initially, it was just a storeroom which was meant to be a storage or study but from the first time I saw this place, I knew what I wanted to do in that space, a walk-in wardrobe.

My hubby was nice enough to let me have my dream so we designed the space and bought wardrobes and finally I have a walk in wardrobe.

I am sure all of us have seen big fancy walk-in wardrobes on TV. Mine is definitely nothing like that so don’t be disappointed when you see it. It’s not the biggest walk-in closet ever or the prettiest of all but it’s certainly my little heaven. Here is a peak.

You can imagine my excitement when I walk in every morning to pick my dress and shoes to go to work. It feels like I am shopping from my closet. Before, this wardrobe, I had my clothes overflowing everywhere but now everything is in one place and the feeling is just awesome.   To make it fair, my hubby is getting the whole wardrobe in our main bedroom and I had this slice of heaven to myself. As I said, it is not very big but has enough space for my dresses, shoes, bags and accessories. It took me a while but I have arranged the entire wardrobe.

I have my work clothes in one section while my daily dresses at one end, parties and formal dresses are on one rack and summer dresses on another.

Then all my shoes are nicely displayed in two cupboards so I know what I have. I have talked about my obsession for shoes here and here so you know that I have many pairs of shoes. Now as they are all visible, I know my options upfront. I made sure all the black ones are at one area and all closed shoes are on another. It feels so good to know that I have so many pairs of shoes. Before, most of them were in boxes so I had no idea what I owe.

I also have enough room for my accessories like earrings, belts, hats etc.

Except my winter clothes, everything is in this room.

For my winter stuffs, I used the wardrobe in the second bedroom where I have jackets, coats hanging while all my jumpers and sweaters are neatly folded on the shelves. Then I have scarves, gloves, stockings and beanies in drawers.

All my saris and traditional outfits are not used so often so they are in my suitcases. I can’t believe I have so many saris and kurta surwals. Most of them are from my wedding.

I still want to do some more in this room like having a nice carpet and a small ottoman. But for now, I am very happy with what I have.

  6. Now this is what I dream of. Attainable walk in closet. Loved so much and if u don’t mind, pls retain the shape of boots by tucking in magazine into each of them. Just roll magazine length wise and tuck in it. It will save them from unwanted wrinkles and so on plus retain their shape for longer. After all its ur money hanging over their . 🙂 as Carrie said!!

    I have walk-in-wardrobe in our new house, builder has provided the top shelf only..I was thinking if we can buy shelves & drawers separately & fix it ourselves.. can u please share from where you bought your walking wardrobe from? 🙂 Thank u 🙂

  11. Yes! This is the post I’ve been waiting for since the time you told me! Fab! Eeee so excited for you! Exactly! “I like my money right where I can see it… hanging in my closet!”
    It looks great and I totally agree! I’d be wearing more of my shoes for starters if they were out of boxes and everywhere else that I’ve tucked them and the clothes are so cramped up even though neatly in hangers, but my wardrobes have no space so I hate pulling things out and messing it up 😦
    But I’m over the moon for you! Eeek!

    Waiting to see other pictures of your house!
    Love, T.x
