Wardrobe Or Walk In Closet? - Today we recognize two types of wardrobe: wardrobe and walk in closet. Wardrobe is loose furniture, wardrobe which can be moved or placed anywhere as needed. While this walk is the closet space to store clothing, including handbags, shoes, and others that allow users through (walk in). The size is usually larger. "At least 2 x 3 meters," said Fernando S Siregar, Chantique designer, one of the manufacturers of cabinets in Jakarta. Cabinet is difficult to be moved because it is built in with a space.

"So, we need to first determine the items to be stored in the walk-in closet ranging from clothing, handbags, shoes, to accessories," he said.
From there it can be formulated in the form of modules that will be applied on a walk-in closet as doors, shelves, drawers and hanging area. Folding clothes rack to store, towels, and blankets; drawers for underwear, socks, and the like; hanging area for clothes to be hung like a shirt and a long dress, or can be added a special area for hanging ties, scarves, and scarf.
The placement of the items in the module should also be tailored to the type and frequency of use.
