Many ladies dream of having a fabulous walk-in wardrobe one day, but with the space challenges we have in Singapore, it seems like that will only stay a dream.

We're here to say that it can come true! There are five ways you can squeeze a small walk-in wardrobe even in a small HDB flat.

#1 A narrow partition

Spacious walk-in wardrobes are a luxury that won't fit into most rooms in Singapore. But you can still have a narrow walk-in wardrobe by moving the bed to the middle of the room and creating a wall partition behind it.

#2 Use a curtain

If your room is on the smaller side, use a curtain instead! The curtain doubles as a headboard and a divider for your walk-in wardrobe at the same time.

While walls and cupboard doors will work for medium to large rooms, it can make a small room feel cramped. A piece of fabric will make even small rooms feel open and it also adds softness and style to your room.

You can easily remove the curtain and rearrange the furniture if you ever want to change things up in the future.

#3 Glass partition

Glass and natural light are key to making a small room look bigger than it is. Instead of opaque walls, go for a glass wall to create your walk-in wardrobe and even a small room will look bright and spacious.

#4 Use mirrors

Another trick is to create a mirrored partition or mirrored sliding door! The mirror is not only functional but it also makes your room look bigger and brighter, even with a space sectioned off as a walk-in wardrobe.

#5 Turn a spare room into a wardrobe

Share a bedroom with your sibling or move your home office to your bedroom or living room so you can convert the spare room into a walk-in wardrobe! If you opt to share a bedroom, move your vanity to the walk-in wardrobe so you have more space in the bedroom.

Renovation will be relatively simple as you only need to break down one wall between your bedroom and spare room. You can also opt not to tear down walls and have a walk-in wardrobe that's not directly connected to your bedroom if your budget is tight.
