When homeowner Jessica decided to transform an unused room located directly across from the Master Bedroom into a dream ‘His & Hers’ Walk-In robe complete with a study nook for husband Michael and herself, she enlisted the help of Kinsman Wardrobes to bring it to life! Step inside this exciting and highly functional room and be inspired!
“My brief to the designer was simply: please design my dream wardrobe,” smiles Jessica. “I wanted to have a space that would house all of my clothes, shoes, bags and jewellery. I also knew I wanted a mix of hanging storage and drawers as well as shelves to display all of my favourite things. Finally, I wanted an area to be able to sit and do my makeup”.
Presented with a blank canvas with two beautiful windows which have since been updated with plantation shutters, we quickly set to work to create a new robe design that ticked all the boxes!
Before: An unused lounge room in the family home, opposite the Master Bedroom, was the perfect location to create a dream walk-in wardrobe and home office for the homeowners.
Due to the generous size of the room, this Master Walk-in Robe features two 4.7 metre banks of generous storage combining hanging space, drawers and open shelving to store all clothing, shoes and accessories for the couple. No external doors were included, the design is all open. “I wanted to be able to see everything at once,” explains Jessica. “So I opted not to have any doors on the wardrobe.”
On the right hand side of the room, the open robe offers four full hanging sections which house coats, dresses and jackets, half hanging for shirts and skirts, a Scarf/Tie Rack, as well as additional shelves above.
To the left, more half hanging space is on offer as well as a decorative black frame glass shelf and jewellery drawer to showcase Jessica’s beloved pieces. Soft closing drawers perfect for storing items such as t-shirts and underwear out of sight, a makeup station complete with a state of the art mirror and open shelving that can double as a study space. Open shelving also features amongst the main robe, allowing Jessica to store her shoes and accessories.
Designer tip: Decorative items such as vases, books, sculptures, artwork, plants and the like will inject colour and add a personal touch to your wardrobe and/or bedroom.
The colour palette.
Both open robes feature a stylish mixture of Kinsman’s interior finishes in White Satin and Natural Oak Matt, creating a fresh and modern take on the classic Scandinavian style that the couple love. Matte black hardware including the hanging rails, and open shelving in matching Natural Oak Matt found within the makeup station further enhance the look.
“I originally wanted an all-white colour scheme, but it was the designer’s suggestion to have the two-tone white and oak finish,” says Jessica. “I am so glad I took her advice as I just love it! It feels luxe, warm and pairs perfectly with the Scandinavian styling we have in other parts of our home. It feels very classic and I can’t ever imagine it going out of style.”
