Wardrobes and closets are a great way to keep your home organised and clutter-free. They can be easily customised to suit your storage needs, helping you to find what you need quickly.
As our clever Bunnings Workshop members have shown, there are many quick and inexpensive ways to add more storage space to your wardrobe.
Below are some terrific examples. Check these out and let us know if you need a hand with your own wardrobe project. We’d be happy to assist.
1. Use the walls
From installing timber dowels to hang clothes on the side wall to adding a D.I.Y. shoe rack, Workshop member @Nicolarose used several clever methods to make their walk-in wardrobe more functional and stylish.
2. Install hanging rails
While upgrading her daughter’s wardrobe, creative Workshop member @Alyce_Pham created a more organised space by installing hanging rails and storage baskets to keep everything neat and tidy. She also opted for sliding mirror doors to maximise space.
Workshop member @Remarka6le installed sturdy, modern shelving to replace an unsuitable wire storage system, making his linen closet much more functional and spacious.
5. Insert drawers
During their wardrobe makeover, Workshop member @Tannie inserted two second-hand wooden draw units, effectively utilising floor space while keeping their wardrobe tidy and organised.
More ways to add storage space to your wardrobe
Besides the ways listed above, we also recommend using vacuum bags to store off-season clothing or blankets. Using under-bed storage containers is another great idea to store wardrobe essentials that are not frequently used.
Check out this step-by-step guide on How to build a walk-in wardrobe shared by the Bunnings team. It contains useful advice on assembling a corner-shelving unit, a unit for drawers and shelves, and how to insert hanging rods between your cabinets.
