Loft wardrobes are often used as a way to add storage space in either a home loft area, or in a loft apartment with roof angles or high ceilings. This kind of wardrobe is usually built in, since a free standing wardrobe may not fit into a loft. There are loft wardrobes that run underneath the pitch of the roof, which make use of the considerable space in the corridor. Another type of wardrobe uses the shape of the roof and is built into the angle at either one or both sides of the roof. There are also built in closets for loft-style apartments that use extra high ceilings for storage space.

A closet loft space in a house may be built under the pitch of the roof to provide more full length wardrobe space. the wardrobe may have long sections for hanging rods, sliding doors, or shaker style wooden doors. It can usually provide more hanging space than a closet that is built into the angled ends of the house as it uses more of the open attic area. These loft wardrobes may also have built-in drawers underneath the hanging rods. This closet may combine drawers with cupboard space above the hanging clothes, depending on the height of the roof.

If a loft wardrobe is built into the ends of the attic corridors, crossways to match the sloping roof, it may have less rod space. These kinds of wardrobes may have different sized doors that open onto storage areas that decrease in size with cupboards for small items. This closet may have three or more doors, with a double hung rod and drawers for folded items. This kind of built in wardrobe usually takes advantage of every square inch of space in the sloping roof area, including the area nearest the eaves. There may also be a secret storage place that is just behind the hanging clothes.

In a loft apartment that may have high ceilings, loft wardrobes can be one way to use the extra square footage. Often these storage areas can be custom built with storage from floor to ceiling. The wardrobe may offer oversize cupboards that can store just about anything, from clothing to toys. Since a loft style apartment may not have regular closets, loft wardrobes can be used to add clothing storage and to keep down clutter by providing a place to store occasionally used items .
