When it comes to dream wardrobe design, the covetable Kinsman Wardrobes featured on The Block have certainly set the bar high, from master bedrooms to guest bedrooms.
In a previous post we covered styles and finishes, so this installment will focus on storage organisation. That is, hanging space, shelves, drawers and accessories – all the different types of compartments that promise to de-clutter your life in the pursuit of ultimate organisation in the bedroom.
When designing wardrobes, think about the people it needs to accommodate (growing child, single, couple, guests for short or long stays?) and the existing items they’ll be storing – then work in some extra space to future-proof it.
Given that a wardrobe’s primary function is to store our clothes, every dream wardrobe needs ample hanging space – whether it’s a walk-in, or sliding or hinged door style. When designing a robe, hanging space is a good place to start, with separate spaces allocated per person. For example, a couple will both need their own hanging spaces, including full length for dresses and coats, and half-length for tops and pants.

The ultimate wardrobe has shelf space in various sizes, making it more versatile for storing larger items or baskets to throw in smaller bits and pieces. Design some storage shelving at the very top of your wardrobe for items that you don’t need on a daily basis – this is a great place to store extra blankets, suitcases or boxes of mementos.

Ultimate organisation requires a sufficient amount of drawers. You’ll want to allocate some for the usual hide-aways such as socks and underwear, and folded clothes like t-shirts, active wear and sweats.
Shelving & Racks
Open shelving is essential for items that you want to find quickly, and also for items that are best stored with some air flow, such as shoes.
Kinsman gives you the option of fixed shoe racks or shoe drawers which pull out for easy access. Both are angled, allowing you to see more of the shoes at a glance.
Kinsman also has black frame glass shelving in its range, which is one of the latest trends from Milan – perfect for any fashion accessories you want on display.

A signature of the ultimate wardrobe is the storage accessories! From Kinsman’s range you can include essentials like hanging hampers or pull-out hanging rails for ties or trouseres
There’s also special wardrobe storage accessories like felt lined compartment drawers which can be used for belts, cufflinks, sunglasses or jewellery – adding a little luxe factor which you’ll enjoy every time you use it.
Or for the really valuable stuff, how about a punch-code safe in your wardrobe?
