- Walk-In Closet
Undoubtedly, this is the dream for all shopaholics – to have a walk-in closet to keep all your impulse buys and yet still provides extra space to store the growing number of clothes. Additional perks of having a walk-in closet, you will be able to see all your clothes, shoes and accessories at all once to cook up your best outfit.
It is important to note the number of different types of clothing you have in your closet; it will determine how you should design your closet. For instance, if you have more office blouses as compared to t-shirts, then you should include a longer hanging rack and dedicate lesser space for shelving.
For those who have lesser clothing, fret not! You can still consider this option! You can opt for a walk-in closet and share the space with your loved one. Visit Dominiq International (#01-33) at The Furniture Mall to let the expert guide you through such a tedious thought process.

This is the most common type of closet we have amongst us. You can customise the way you want your closet to look like. If you wish to save some space, then a sliding door would be your best friend. Do note that using a sliding door means you can only access a part of your wardrobe at a time! So, if you are one that requires a full view of your closet to decide what outfit to put on, then you should consider an open door wardrobe.
One ingenious way of incorporating even more space to those doors is to add hooks to them to keep your belt or accessories in place. You can even use over-door-organiser to put more stuff!

Some additional tips for you in organising your closet:
- Before you start organising, a good closet purge is needed.
Have a good look at your existing clothes and you’ll realise you have been keeping some clothes which you’ll never wear again. Throw out those that are torn and tattered pieces, clothes that you’ve not worn for at least a good 3 years (you’ll probably never wear them anymore), or clothes that don’t fit you. This will help create more space that you can work with!
- Label how you would like to organise your outfits.
For instance, the top most shelve can be used to place lesser worn clothes, such as some of the winter wear that you only wear overseas. The middle section can be reserved to place your everyday wear – t-shirt, home wear, undergarments and more. By labeling what needs to be in each section, it will help you stay committed to organising your clothes and you’ll be able to easily find what you need!
- Organise your clothes according to the shades of colour
Place similar shades of clothes together, starting from the darkest to lightest shade. This will make your closet more aesthetically pleasing too!
- Organise based on types of clothes
For instance, all the shirts can be placed together on the shelves while your office blouse can be hanged together on the racks.
Well, now that you are well-equipped with all the information regarding closet – you pretty much have an idea of what kind of closet you need. So what are you waiting for? Head down to The Furniture Mall (located beside IMM) now!
