His and her wardrobes There should be separate his and her wardrobes in the bedroom so as to create efficient storage catering to the individual requirements of each partner. How? A woman’s wardrobe should have provision for hanging long dresses, belts, purses and sarees and casual clothing, and shelves and drawers for storing other clothes and accessories. The man’s wardrobe should have provision for hanging formal suits, trousers, belts and ties, shelves for stacking folded clothes, and drawers for other accessories.
In this walk-in closet, the open-style wardrobe extends further to become a dresser cum seating area and makes good use of the corner of this room. This type of design is best suited if you do not want to break the continuity of the wardrobe with a dresser unit and want to make multi-functional use of the corners of the room.
This is a luxurious space – one can achieve this by creating a single drawer unit to demarcate the mirror section from the lower void that is used to tuck in the cushioned vanity chair or stool, as in this example. Additionally, the mirror is extended to the ceiling of the room to give a feeling of expanse and more height to the dressing table.
The best way to create a dresser within your wardrobe is by creating a niche (usually positioned in the horizontal centre of the wardrobe) and fixing a mirror within the niche. This arrangement gives a neat and tidy look to rest of the room without creating any kind of visual clutter. Note: The width of the dresser should be at least 30 inches, while the finished height of the dresser’s platform can range between 24 and 36 inches; the lower area, below the dresser counter, is used for storage.
Women’s wardrobe For hanging women’s clothing like gowns, kurtas or long dresses, the vertical clearance of the hanger section should be 66-72 inches. (Adjust the height according to your individual height and requirement). Hang sarees or formal shirts in a smaller section with a height of 40 inches. Introduce open shelves for keeping folded clothes. There should be a clearance of at least 12-15 inches between each shelf.
