Have you always wanted an open wardrobe in your bedroom, but didn’t know where to start?
I have the answer for you with this open wardrobe diy. And the best part is that you can make it yourself without spending a packet. Yes, really. You can head to my shop where you’ll find the DIY open wardrobe tutorial.
If the whole boxy wardrobe look doesn’t appeal to you, this kind of open wardrobe is for you. It’s simple, minimal and best of all it won’t take up nearly as much space in your bedroom but still gives you as much storage as a standard sized wardrobe.
With this open wardrobe diy you can hang your clothes in style and hide all your undies, socks, accessories and clutter away in some chest of drawers underneath the DIY clothes rail. The top of the cabinets also come in handy for keeping bits and pieces that you need to access to all the time.
I’ve always lusted after the Scandi style minimal open wardrobes and so when we moved in to our current home (which we renovated from scratch), I decided now was my chance. Also, I’m not a fan of readymade wardrobes as many tend to look so modular and bulky. But when I looked in to purchasing some stylish Scandi style clothes rails, they cost a lot. So we decided to make our own for a fraction of the price.
We came up with this unique design for the clothes hanger and decided to use Ikea kitchen cabinets for the closed storage. You can of course use a ready made chest of drawers or anything you like under them. You can also add shelves above the rails. For an ultra minimal look, you can have nothing under or above the rails but you’ll have to find somewhere else to keep your smaller stuff.
We started sketching and drawing and finally once we had designed it all, Richard set about making it. The design is striking with the angled look and it’s super practical too.
We created identical rails for both of us and then had the drawer unit going across the length of the wall. A shared wardrobe isn’t an option in this house – c’mon people, do you know any woman who can share a wardrobe?!
Two added and unexpected bonuses of this kind of open wardrobe are that it made me get rid of clothes I never wear. We all have a ton of those, don’t we? And also, now I don’t leave a ton of clothes lying on chairs and stuff because it’s so easy to hang them up every evening.
Most of all, I love how minimal and light this DIY open wardrobe looks in our bedroom. And now you can make the same – the step by step written tutorial is available in my printable shop.
It takes a little effort to make this wardrobe, but once made it will be so worth it!
