Interior renovations Wardrobe and Closet layouts: 10 examples

We’re accustomed to seeing two classic types of wardrobes: the small cluttered closet or the huge walk-in wardrobe reserved for upscale homes. Of course, to limit yourself to these two options is to forget a multitude of closet arrangements that exist and that can be easily adapted to your needs.

Naturally, if you see the same type of wardrobe repeatedly, it’s hard to imagine anything else. Luckily, we’ve compiled this list of 10 wardrobes and closets for storage enthusiasts and dreamers.

Among these examples, you’ll certainly find a template to suit your needs, that’ll help you clarify your ideas for your project!

Well-organized closets and wardrobes 

1- An elegant and bright black, white and gold walk-in closet

We begin this list with a walk-in type room in which the owners opted for a layout where clothes and objects are hidden behind doors. It's a choice that is highly recommended for those who prefer a minimalist look.

What we particularly like about this room is the fact that there is plenty of natural light, which provides good lighting for trying on clothes. The fact that the decor's colour scheme is quite subdued is an additional asset. This is because the emphasis will be on your clothes when you take them out of the closet to create your daily outfit.

2- A wardrobe that serves as a laundry room

We think it’s an excellent idea to turn a closet into a laundry room! This simplifies everyday tasks, as you won't have to move around the house to put clothes in the washer or to put away the ones in the dryer.

The storage organization is also particularly successful, with clothes on one side and shoes plus accessories on the other. Each object finds its perfect place in this pleasant and practical room.

3- A narrow, but efficient wardrobe space

Oftentimes, houses aren’t equipped with wardrobes or closets. In fact, the lack of storage is a real issue, sometimes complicating the layout of rooms.

Instead of closing off an entire wall and creating a narrow and unwelcoming wardrobe space, why not build a partial wall without a door, but which manages to divide the room in such a way as to avoid the visual chaos that can be created in this type of storage space.

In this bedroom, a wall has been added behind the bed, allowing for clothing storage space while maximizing the use of this room.

4- A little closet all in white

We continue with a much more classic wardrobe example. This storage space is quite small, but no space is wasted! The shelves and racks are strategically placed so that elements are accessible according to how frequently they’re used.

For example, the top shelf boxes can be used to store clothes out of season. The choice of folding doors is also interesting, as it makes this arrangement very effective in small spaces. Finally, let us highlight the choice of white which allows for beautiful natural light, amplified by the doors which are adorned with narrow slits. 

5- An entryway wardrobe appealing to storage enthusiasts

The classic entryway closet has been reimagined and optimized. Here, the door’s been removed to allow for better circulation inside. The trunk on the ground has been converted into an extra bench, a great place to put your shoes or boots on.

Storage has also been maximized, with the installation of many individual boxes where it will be easy to find the item you’re looking for. This is a great way to save time in the morning when you’re up early and getting ready for your day!

6-  A large walk-in closet with neutral tones; chic and relaxing

We felt it necessary to present an example of a luxury walk-in closet so you could dream a little bit. If you’re able to build this type of room in your house, then we’d consider you quite lucky!

With this chic and straightforward decor, it feels like we're walking into a stylish clothing store. The mirror is cleverly installed in the center and the subdued but well-targeted lighting creates a beautiful way to present clothes and accessories.

7- A long wardrobe with a beautiful view

Here’s another example of a walk-in closet, but this one is far from the cliché! At first, it looks like a hallway that has been turned into a closet, a very interesting idea. As an excellent way to start the day off right,  here we can choose our outfit while contemplating the view through the window.

The multicoloured carpet runner succeeds in sowing cheerfulness in the room. The white that dominates the rest of the space serves to give a spotlight to the pretty clothes installed on the racks.

8- A storage space for clothes behind a curtain

Here’s a second example of storage space that can be installed in a room that doesn’t come equipped with a closet. Instead of building a partial wall, they’ve installed a curtain that separates the wardrobe from the rest of the room.

This idea should be prioritized if you don’t want to embark on major work or if you want flexibility in terms of room layout.

9- A cute closet for a child's room

This wardrobe looks a lot like the one shown in number 4. It’s the same type of arrangement, but with solid doors and drawers that replace the shelves. In some cases, drawers are more practical, especially if you have to store a large number of small items (such as children's clothes).

The supported section is large and airy, so easy to adapt according to the child’s growth (and that of their clothes). Finally, the pretty baskets at the top can be used to hide less-than-pretty objects or clothes that aren’t being worn at the moment.

10- A simple and efficient little wardrobe

Finally, here’s a nice example showing a not-so-huge closet, but one which is none-the-less well laid out. This type of wardrobe could be used in an entrance area as well as in a bedroom.

As both doors open, everything is easy to access, so there’s no cramped space where items may get lost, as we often see in closets!
