Walk-in wardrobes have become one of the most popular must-have items homeowners ask for in a renovation. But with small rooms in HDB flats, is it really possible to fit in a sizeable walk-in wardrobe with enough room to walk in it?
Fear not, the answer is yes! These 11 wardrobe ideas prove that when thereâ€™s a will, thereâ€™s a space-efficient way.
Combine two rooms for easy access
1. If youâ€™ve got a spare room adjacent to your bedroom, consider hacking the walls in between and convert it into an en-suite walk-in wardrobe – this makes your room much more spacious at the same time!

2. If want the areas more clearly demarcated, create a walkway of sorts that combines rooms, without removing the walls completely. Here, the wall area thatâ€™s left intact supports a pole shoe rack system.

Turn a spare bedroom into a full-fledged closet
3. Joining two rooms into one has its own perks, but having four full walls for your walk-in wardrobe means more space – having a whole room just for your clothes, shoes and accessories? Just like a movie star.

4. Sometimes, you just need a little more privacy when changing, so having a proper room with a door comes in handy – besides, no hacking also means less costs!

Carve out a nook
5. Of course, forfeiting an entire room isnâ€™t the only way – if space permits, create a small â€˜pocketâ€™ or nook in your bedroom. In fact, a walkway gap as narrow as 80cm â€“ 1 metre is enough for a decent walk-in closet.

7. Making a statement with an arched entryway, this bedroomâ€™s ultra-slim closet gives off major hip-boutique vibes, with mirrors installed on the sides, visually elongating the area.

Use the wardrobe as a room divider
8. Erecting your wardrobe in the middle of the room allows this clean and bright bedroom to have a small, walk-in corner, right beside the bathroom for easy access after a shower.

9. Use the wardrobeâ€™s backing as a the perfect OOTD backdrop (for an obligatory photo-op), which also gives the room a stand-out feature for visual interest.

Create a partition
10. If youâ€™re blessed with a sizeable master bedroom, carve out a decent wardrobe space. Even so, you donâ€™t need to erect a wall. Instead, use panels/partitions to subtly â€˜divideâ€™ your space. Here, a vanity table maximises the spaceâ€™s utility.

11. With colourful Peranakan tiles and an open-shelving system, this wardrobe corner is a huge contrast to the white-washed bedroom, making it look like a totally different room! Thankfully, translucent glass partitions tone down the visual buzz for the sleeping area and work as a privacy screen.
