Japanese walk-in closets

Arpel can create your walk-in closet using solid beechwood both for the japanese doors as for internal structure. The internal structure is designed with the customer to fit his or her needs. At the end of the page you can find examples of internal structures.

We define walk-in closets as having the following characteristics:

  • wall to wall closure with japanese doors
  • a small room closure with 1 or maximum 2 doors in japanese style
  • a closure of a small room with sliding pocket doors in japanese style
  • a closure from a wall to a vertical wood element with japanese doors

The walk-in closet system allows to close a specific space of your room with traditional japanese doors to form a closet. The final effect will be a perfect closure from the ceiling to the floor.

This option is possible in Italy and Germany where we can assemble the closet directly in your house.

Walk-in closets with japanese doors

The walk-in closet design recalls the traditional shoji style used to divide rooms in japanese houses.
The doors are available in several wood colors. The door can be made with wooden panels coated with ecru fabrics, basic wood panels or original rice papers.
The sliding systems can be the traditional wood-on-wood systems or they can use metal runners placed on the ceiling.

Internal structure

In general, the inner space is divided in a number of sections equal to the number of the doors. However this is not a rule and different solutions can be evaluated.
The sections can be separated with column modules or vertical panels.
“panels”
Column modules can be fixed to the wall or to the ceiling while the panels reach from the floor to the ceiling or a horizontal panel.

It's possible to request the following items for the inner structure:

  • shelfs
  • base elements installed from column to column
  • vertical sweater holder modules
  • hanger rods
  • drawer modules with 2, 3 or more drawers

The drawer modules of our walk-in closets are made in solid beechwood and they can have different pull-out systems

  • wood-on-wood, according to the japanese tradition
  • invisible sliding rails made by Blum with a soft closure system

Sloping roofs

In buildings with sloping roofs we can make perfect closures with rails. The slope can be compensated with several solutions depending on the situations.
