Bedroom13 Walk-In Robe Ideas You'll Fall In Love With

Let’s be honest, walk-in robes are kind of a big deal in modern houses and we all want them to be as beautiful as they are functional. So with that in mind, we’ve taken a stroll through some of the world’s most amazing walk-in robes for the best ideas on how to design and style your dream wardrobe.

A walk-in robe is a major bedroom feature that feels luxurious, and when designed right, ups your storage game. Whether you add an oversized arched mirror for extra elegance or install a velvet bench seat for a splash of glamour, the ideas are only limited by your imagination.

But there are a few essential features of modern walk-in robes you should keep top of mind as you scour ideas for your own design or build. Because no one wants a gorgeous robe that you can’t find anything in! Let’s take a closer look:

Essential Features Of A Walk-In Robe

  • You can never have too much storage! – The single most important feature of any robe is adequate storage. When looking at walk-rin robe design ideas, consider your clothing inventory. Do you have a massive collection of shoes to store? Are there a lot of suit bags to hang? If you’re creating a robe for you and your partner to share, make sure there’s enough storage for both of you!
  • Enough lighting – Many walk-in robes don’t have a window, so lighting is really important. Ensure it’s bright enough to see right into drawers and cupboards, but also consider having secondary lighting for mood and aesthetics or perhaps have lighting on a dimmer. Skylights are another fabulous option.
  • The right flooring – Most of us consider a walk-in robe to be a luxurious bedroom feature, so you want it to feel that way. Floorboards give a casual vibe and suit warmer climates, whereas carpet has a more premium feel to it (and it keeps your feet warm while you get dressed!)

White On White

Particularly when it comes to small walk-in robes, white is a winner. This space makes stunning use of white on the walls and cabinetry, and we’re in love with the choice of stone bench colour for extra dimension.

Natural Retreat

Coastal-style walk-in wardrobe with light wood drawers, an arched entry and wicker baskets throughout.

When it comes to renovating, Kyal and Kara knock everything out of the park – and this robe from the Blue Lagoon build is no exception. One of the dreamiest wardrobes we’ve seen, it uses light wood and wicker baskets to nail the luxe coastal look.

A Spot For Everything

A modern closet with grey cabinetry throughout and a full-length window at the end.

This slimline walk-in robe idea goes to show that you don’t need a lot of space to fit everything in; it all comes down to smart storage. There’s plenty of full-length hanging space, drawers for folded garments, a spot for shoes and open shelves for accessories. But the best bit? The full-length window floods the room with natural light.

Curves For Days

Like something from a French Provincial home, this walk-in robe uses muted tones and beautiful arches to soften the space and invite people in. Finished off with gold handles and a vintage light fitting, it’s a stunning idea who people looking for a luxurious, timeless result.

The Loveliest Loft

A loft that has been converted into a walk-in wardrobe with angled windows.

Got an empty loft you need to make use of? Why not turn it into a walk-in robe? This brilliant idea from Hammonds UK demonstrates that you don’t need a standard room to make an amazing wardrobe. Just look at those windows letting the light pour in.

Glass Doors

A luxurious dark-hued walk-in robe with glass sliding doors.

Sure, the storage is great and the design is fabulous, but it’s the use of glass sliding doors on this walk-in robe that takes it to a whole other level. Of course, this does mean you’d have to keep the interior ship-shape when guests drop by!

Dressing Room Dreams

A large walk-in closet fitted with wooden shelving and a central dressing table.

With a spot for everything and a perfectly sized dressing table, this walk-in robe idea is heaven for beauty lovers. Note the clever use of lighting in this room, too. Not only are the shelves backlit, but there’s a fabulous LED mirror included at the dressing table.

A light and bright walk-in wardrobe with overhead skylight.

From Kyal and Kara’s Long Jetty renovation, this walk-in wardrobe uses skylights to drench the space with natural light – and it couldn’t be more perfect for the beachy setting. We’re also loving the choice of floorboards for this room – natural and coastal.

Smart Use Of Space

A walk-in wardrobe with loads of wooden shelving and white cabinets.

With so much emphasis on the many shelves in this Kinsman wardrobe, you barely notice the other side is entirely cupboards! For a small walk-in robe, this design gets top points for how much it stores.

The Hidden Gem

A white closet space with glossy wooden floorboards.

Some of us are fully aware that we will never have a tidy robe, so an ‘out-of-sight’ design is ideal. This idea from Versa Robes shows that a walk-in robe can be positioned completely out of view of the bedroom or bathroom. You’ll need a decent-sized bedroom for a design like this, but it’s a fantastic option for us messy folk!

Colour Coordinated

A classic walk-in wardrobe with herringbone wooden floor and wooden shelving.

This walk-in robe is a great example of smart colour pairing. Notice how the blues work in perfect harmony with the brown wooden backdrop? That’s because the colours sit pretty much opposite each other on the colour wheel, meaning they contrast and complement at the same time. Win-win!

Neat And Tidy

With dedicated spots for absolutely everything and plenty of floor space, this neutral walk-in robe idea from Carlisle Homes looks neat, livable and inviting. The oversized ottoman makes the perfect finishing touch.
