Behind the Wardrobe: Secret Rooms

If you’ve ever seen the children’s classic ‘The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe’, you’ll know all about the story of something enchanting hiding behind an old and musty wardrobe. What if you could take inspiration and transform your own wardrobe into something other than its intended purpose?

A Wardrobe Is Transformed Into A Secret Hideout

One young girl transformed her armoire into a secret hideout. With help from her interior designer mother, the white doors of her wardrobe now open into a secret passage that led to her very own lounge and clothes storage. If you have some additional space in the home, this is a great idea for kids and adults alike – although it does require some hardcore DIY!

Turn Your Wardrobe Into Extra Book Storage

If you’re a book lover, you’ll know how easy it is to get carried away every time you enter a bookstore. In that case, make sure there’s plenty of room for expanding your ‘to read’ pile with wardrobe doors that open into a tidy storage space. Your own mini library can be easily done by simply adding shelving into a wardrobe. You’ll never have to worry about where your favourite novels will go again.

A Bar? In A Wardrobe?

Yes! Installing countertops or a marble topped desk into a wardrobe can create a modern looking wet bar. Closing the doors will keep your bottles hidden safely away and keep the room looking neat. When you have friends over, all you need to do is pull up a few bar stools and you’re good to go! Alternatively, wine connoisseurs might want to stack a few wine racks into the wardrobe to store their precious vino.

Voila - Your Wardrobe Is Now A Family Fort

Take the doors off their hinges, squeeze in a mattress, add some fairy lights and pillows and nail up some blankets to use as curtains and you have a cosy family fort that’s built for rainy days. Can you think of a better idea for your little ones?

Our sliding door wardrobes may not have a mystical land behind them, but they certainly have space. Plus, with such a huge range of styles to choose from, you can turn your bedroom into an enchanting space that’s just for you.
