home touches // the closet

Following on from my recent room snippets I have my wardrobe and the odd tip to maximise the space. Maybe these individual posts are tedious, though when it came to searching the wardrobe I eventually ordered I struggled to find anywhere online that had an almost review. My Daybed however had a fair bit just not so much for the age group I fit in.

Until switching over rooms I didn't realise how lucky I was to have such a huge built in wardrobe. Built in wardrobes always seem to be a hassle, with most knocking them out. Mine couldn't be knocked out due to it being above a section of the stairs and how important it would become for the days I hoarded fashion. It earned the name of Narnia, once the perfect home to boxes & boxes of Barbies and Polly Pockets, I'd managed to fill it to the brim with clothes, shoes and accessories. A late night search on Ikea to mimic what I'd been used to found my new wardrobe and oh my, it is huge. 

The wardrobe that I ordered was the Ikea Trysil in white which turned out to have grey detailing that matches my flooring perfectly. Not bad for another item I hadn't checked out in person before ordering. The Trysil wardrobe is available in two colour options and features sliding doors, hanging rail, two movable shelves and four drawers. It may not be the prettiest of wardrobes, I did think I'd settle on the matching Hemnes sliding wardrobe option, only to find it out of stock everywhere in the UK and online. 

Since I'm so short I decided to put the shelves low down in the wardrobe, one per section. Out of the four drawers I've filled two to the brim with most of my underwear while the other two house my excessive amount of Topshop Leigh Jeans & Gap Legging Jeans and tops that don't need to hang. On the shelves are boxes of shoes, baskets of shoes, a box of handbags and excess beauty products that need to be reviewed or put away. I also kept a few of my old Dunelm postcard print boxes for paperwork, tights and candle storage - Neom, Yankee & Kringle. Still keeping to the velvet hangers that maximise your hanging space, the left side houses my tops, blouses etc and light jumpers while the right has heavier knitwear, blazers, dresses and skirts. Overall it's a great piece of furniture that's easily customised and an absolute bargain of £170?! Be sure to keep up with the Home Touches tag each week. * own purchases. not sponsored

  4. Hello, thanks for your post! I am looking at buying a Trysil wardrobe but yours is the only review I could find. I like the look of them, but was wondering if you could comment on the quality? Has it stood the test of time? (2 years at least!). Thank you!

    1. Hi Ellie,
      I still have the wardrobe, it's really good quality. I've not had any issues with it, it holds a hell of a lot of stuff and I'd purchase another if Ikea still make it when I have my own place and more bedrooms to fill :)
