How to choose a wardrobe
A wardrobe is the second most important furniture piece in your bedroom, right after your bed. It requires a lot of consideration before a choice can be made in terms of style, size, and storage capacity. Once you start shopping, you will find that there are plenty of options available to find the right piece to fit your needs and preferences. To help you figure out what features are the most important to you, here are a few tips on what to look for in the best wardrobe for your bedroom.
Decide What You Need to Store
When considering your storage needs, think about how many hanging rails, shelves, and drawers you will require. Do you have longer items like dresses that require a full-length hanging space as well as half-height rails for jackets, skirts, shirts, and blouses? Having shelves that are adjustable is also very convenient especially if your storage needs will change over time.
This is also a really good time to consider reducing the number of clothes that you own. You don’t want to just move all of your spare clothing items into your new wardrobe so take a few minutes to look at each item to decide if it is worth keeping or not. This can be a time-consuming process but, in the end, you will be happy that you did it.
Types of Wardrobes
Now that you know how large your wardrobe can be, you will need to start thinking about the type of wardrobe you would like. Instrument Furniture can help you choose the right type of wardrobe and configuration that will suit your preferences and storage needs.
The most common wardrobe type is a two-door wardrobe that typically has a pretty basic and simple design. It consists of a shelf above a single hanging rail clothing with a possible bottom drawer to store small items or shoes.
Three and four-door wardrobes usually have similar design features as a two-door wardrobe but include two hanging rails instead of one plus additional shelving space on the sides. Normally this type of wardrobe is chosen for someone with a large number of clothes or for a couple to share.
Wardrobes with sliding doors are a great choice for someone that doesn’t have a lot of extra space for doors. The inside of a sliding door wardrobe will depend on the design and size that you prefer but they typically are divided up into more than just a single section and have a spacious hanging rail, shelf space, and drawers at the bottom.
If you are looking for versatility in your bedroom, a wardrobe is a great addition not only for aesthetics but also as a functional storage unit. And, unlike a customized closet, the majority of our wardrobes you can take with you when you move so it won’t seem like a waste of money in the future (please advise with us about moving). Having shelves and rails that are adjustable only increase the piece’s versatility allowing it to change with you through the seasons and through different fashion trends.
Style and Space
What décor style do you gravitate towards? Modern? Industrial? Traditional? Do you want the new wardrobe to match the current style of your bed set or are you interested in a contrasting décor style? Just put together your ideas and preferences and Instrument furniture can help you find just the right style for your bedroom.
And, even though we all dream of an expansive wardrobe that we could simply walk into, very few of us have that luxury. It is important to figure out beforehand how much space you will have to work with as that is an integral part of the wardrobe buying process. One of the most frustrating feelings is finding a gorgeous wardrobe only to discover that it will not fit in your bedroom.
Depending on the other types of wood in your bedroom, you will want to choose the one that compliments that look. Wardrobe colors and finishes will vary depending on the wood you choose so stick with mahogany if you have a reddish-brown wood color throughout your bedroom or oak if you need a lighter shade of wood.
Now that you have found the perfect wardrobe for your bedroom, you can take that next step and add a few personal touches to it. You may just want to change out some knobs or even make your own handles to add that personal touch that will create memories for many years to come.
