A Walk-In Closet for Your Child's Bedroom

Last update: 17 October, 2019

Children’s rooms are very different today from those many of us had when we grew up. The rise in cheaper manufacturing methods makes it possible for them to have many more clothes, toys, and shoes than we had.  So, of course, they need a lot more space to store their stuff and perhaps even a walk-in closet.

You may believe that only wealthy people with huge houses can afford to buy fancy clothing storage units. However, they don’t have to be too luxurious and you can easily adapt them to your spaces, budget, and amount of clothes.

You can even place clothing storage units in your children’s rooms so that they can easily access all of their clothes. It’ll also allow them to learn how to select their outfits at an early age.

A nice walk-in closet isn’t just for people with many shoes and purses or dozens of suits and watches. Also, it isn’t necessary to have a lot of money or a huge house.

A custom walk-in closet is an interesting element for both tidiness and decor. It will allow you to keep clothes organized, as long as you fold and hang them. It also gives a special air of sophistication to any room.

A short time ago only adults had a walk-in closet. However, many children today can also enjoy one in their bedrooms. This is because kids have a lot of clothes these days! Girls and teenagers often run out of space and end up with no room to store their many clothes, bags, shoes, and accessories.

If you own your house you could easily install a walk-in closet for your children’s bedroom when they’re still little. That way you won’t have to buy baby furniture they’ll soon outgrow. Besides, most baby clothes are very nice to look at so they’ll act as decor all on their own.

Today’s children’s rooms are not at all as they were when we grew up. These days they even have desks for computers, televisions, and even walk-in closets.

You must keep up to date and try to meet your children’s needs and of course, make their lives as comfortable as you can. If you think that wood is too serious for a child’s dressing room, then try white paint or pastel colors that go with the rest of the decor of their room.

Install shelves, drawers, and hangers for all kinds of clothes and think about the future. That is, give them more space than they currently need and place everything at a standard height. All thinking about how the walk-in closet should grow up with the child.

There are many wonderful designs out there. So, today we’d like to tell you about the most beautiful and practical that you can integrate into any decor.

1. Walk-in closets with glass doors or curtains

Glass doors are an excellent idea to protect clothes. It also makes the room seem tidier. In addition, they’ll protect your child’s garments from dust and sunlight.

If you don’t feel comfortable having a glass door in your child’s walk-in closet then an excellent alternative is to place curtains around it. That way it will be easier to open and close it. You can have privacy, organization, and beauty with simple fabric. The best thing is you get to choose the colors and patterns.

2. Shelving systems and baskets

Most children’s clothes are easy to fold and you can organize them on shelves. Then, you can just hang large, bulky items such as jackets or dresses. The rest you can fold and place on the shelves.

The best thing about shelving systems is they make clothes easier to find and there’s little clutter.

These are great for smaller items such as socks and underwear. You can also use them for scarves, hats, and belts. Baskets are objects you should definitely have in a child’s bedroom. They look particularly beautiful in open shelving systems.

3. Full walk-in closet

If you have a very large house and the children’s rooms have space, then you could easily build a walk-in closet for them to occupy progressively as they grow up.

A walk-in closet isn’t complete without shelves, drawers and hanger rods on both sides of the wall. It should also have a special section dedicated to footwear and another one just for accessories. In addition, it should have a full-length mirror and even a chair or a bench to set out clothes.
