If you don't have space in your bedroom, perhaps try converting a spare box room into a walk in wardrobe.
Walk-in wardrobes have long been associated with style and sophistication, and can complement any kind of bedroom scheme.
The ability to hand tailor the layout and design to accommodate your needs is a valuable extra.
Many walk-in wardrobes are available with fixed and sliding panels to maximize your available floor space.
And if you don't have the space for one in your bedroom, you could always look into converting a box room, spare room, study or loft space into a luxury walk-in wardrobe. Chaotic but glamorous splendor DEBORAH FLEMING, 30, is creative director at Pistol Panties and lives in Notting Hill, West London, with her husband, Tim, a lawyer.
She says: My walk-in wardrobe is undoubtedly my favorite room in the house.
I live in a bijou cottage in Notting Hill, London and my wardrobe, which is about 100 sq ft, takes up about 25 per cent of the property. I probably spend more time here than anywhere else in the house, and I think of it as my playroom. It's filled with a lifetime's worth of my favorite clothes, hats and shoes.
I'm a vintage fanatic and have loads of clothes from Portobello Market and my favorite shop, Relic. I grew up in Paris, where my mother used to own a boutique during the Seventies. Thankfully, she's a hoarder like me, so I have plenty of treasured hand-me-downs including a shocking pink YSL silk skirt, which I love. I have more party dresses in my wardrobe than I know what to do with, and although a lot of my clothes aren't for everyday wear, I still love to see them on my London walk in wardrobe display.
I have a Fifties-style screen from which I hang clothes when I don't have time to put them away properly - but the more chaotic the room becomes, the more glamorous it looks. I have shelves filled with shoes from Lulu Guinness, Olivia Morris, Miu Miu and Jimmy Choo.
Then there are the bags, hats and jewelry, which hang from every available space. I'm a swim-wear designer and keep an archive of every Pistol Panties bikini I've made - these take up an entire chest of drawers.
Because I'm in the fashion industry, I get to buy a lot of clothes at samples sales. I spend about £500 a month on clothes and I can never bear to get rid of anything. "Organized chaos" My wardrobe is organized chaos.
I'm not into boxing and labeling, and I don't colour co-ordinate, but I still know exactly where everything is. Each season I pack away what I won't need for the next six months and put it into storage, which helps me to make the most of the space I have.
My husband is a lawyer and he often calls me Carrie Bradshaw from Sex And The City because of my passion for fashion. He has his own separate walk in closet upstairs, which is about half the size of mine.
However, I have very strict rules when it comes to my wardrobe and he knows never to dump his clothes in my space - although, I have to confess, the over spill from my wardrobe has gradually started creeping its way into his. I bought the property seven years ago and I completely renovated it.
Having a walk-in wardrobe London was high on my list of priorities. And has added a simplicity and quality to my day to day dressing. and changing London lifestyle.
