Now that you have gone through the motions of the KonMari method of decluttering and tidying, you are ready to take on an open-concept wardrobe to flaunt your newly-acquired organisation skills.
Unlike traditional carpenter-made wardrobes that come with doors easily costing twice or even thrice as much to install, an open-concept wardrobe is gaining popularity and traction among new-age homeowners for its attractive price point and DIY customisation possibilities.
Functions of an open wardrobe
An open wardrobe is useful and functional as a coat rack when they are placed in entryways to hang any bags and outerwear. If you have the luxury of space, you can have an open wardrobe rack on top of your standard closed wardrobes to easily access your everyday wear. Open wardrobes are also a great addition to service yards and laundry rooms.
