The storing furniture: the walk-in closets

They are the modern reinterpretation of the ancient wardrobe, which in the beginning was to be found only in the high society homes because of course only the rich could afford to have many clothes, shoes and overcoats.
In nowadays homes, the walk-in closets are mainly used as wardrobes and therefore are equipped with shelves, drawers, coat racks, shoe racks and so on, even if the space can also be used for the kitchen storage.

The order and cleanliness given by a walk-in closet add to the beauty of the room and the general atmosphere of the interior.
