Walk-in vs sliding door wardrobes

Published - 04 Nov 2016
You see them in all the Hollywood movies … over-the-top, luxurious walk-in wardrobes that have remote-controlled drawers and are the size of a large bathroom. Remember that scene in Princess Diaries 2 when she compares her new closet to her “own shopping mall”? What about Carrie Bradshaw’s remodeled walk-in in the Sex in the City movie? George Wade’s closet in 2 Weeks Notice? Or Cher Horowitz’s colour-coordinated collage in Clueless? There are so many examples and they all suggest that a walk-in wardrobe the size of a small boutique is the only way to feel like a princess or be the most fashionable woman in town. But, does it actually offer you more storage space?
 
I’m not going to deny that a walk-in wardrobe wouldn’t be a nice addition to my house, however the reality is, that I could put that space to a lot better use! I could have an ensuite bathroom, make the second bedroom bigger, or increase the size of the main bathroom to make room for a separate shower and freestanding bath; all of which would dramatically increase the value of my home much more than a walk-in closet! And imagine the bubble baths in that freestanding, claw-foot tub!
 
Recently, amid a conversation with a girlfriend over coffee and cake, we got onto the subject of wardrobe space and I asked how much difference there would actually be between a walk-in wardrobe and a sliding wardrobe that spans the length of a bedroom wall? I think you’ll be surprised to know that there’s not much in it!
