After your bed, a wardrobe is probably the biggest investment and biggest item you’ll have in your bedroom. With so many factors to consider, it can be difficult making the choice and committing to purchase. But there’s definitely a wardrobe style to suit every home. Here are a few things to consider when buying your new wardrobe.
Choosing the right size wardrobe
The first and arguably most important thing to think about when choosing your wardrobe is the size of space you can afford to have taken up within your bedroom. The width and depth will give you an estimation of how much floor space you’ll need to free up to comfortably fit your wardrobe. But you also need to accommodate for the doors to fully open in the space, otherwise they’ll hit your other furniture, or you won’t be able to get your clothes out!
For rooms that don’t have much free wall space, a corner wardrobe might be the best answer. Single and double door wardrobes can also be a compact solution, giving you ample storage without having to compromise on your floor space. Maximising your wardrobe storage
When looking at wardrobe space, first consider what you’ll be storing inside it. If you have long dresses and suits, a wardrobe with at least one full‐length section will be necessary. However, some people have a lot of separates which can be better stored folded. A wardrobe with drawers would give optimum space, providing a place to both hang and fold items.
Large wardrobes with drawers can sometimes act as the sole unit of storage within the room, serving as a wardrobe and chest of drawers in the one piece. If you want to keep your furniture to a minimum but still need a lot of storage space, this could be a brilliant compromise.
Wardrobe styles to suit your room
Once you’ve decided on the size and storage needs of your new wardrobe, it’s time to find one that looks the part in your bedroom. Wooden styles such as walnut, dark wood and oak wardrobes give a warmth to the room and add to that rustic feel.
If your bedroom is a more contemporary style, a black or white wardrobe might suit better. Mirrored wardrobes also give that simple but luxury aesthetic to the space and make the room feel bigger and lighter.
If you want a room with a traditional ambiance but with a modern twist, why choose both wood and glass? Now you can get wardrobes with a combination of both, giving you the look and practicality that you need to complete your bedroom.
The benefits of sliding wardrobe doors
If you have a room with not much space between the wardrobe and the bed, sliding wardrobes could be the perfect solution. The mechanism of the door means you won’t have to open anything out, so the entire unit remains compact and frees up that extra floor space indefinitely.
Sliding wardrobes are sophisticated and often come in all the same styles as regular wardrobes, so you don’t have to compromise on visual appeal to get a wardrobe that fits and suits your room.
