Deciding on a wardrobe is a challenge of both dimension and style. They’re absolute essentials for stowing clothes away into safety from dust, insects and the prying eyes of others who may not appreciate your mess! Some modern wardrobe designs are small and compact while other designs are big and open – it just depends on the size of your bedroom, the amount of clothes you have and the size of your wallet!
Here are some quick tips to get you launched on selecting the best wardrobe design for your bedroom.
#1 Measure your room comprehensively
Check, double check and triple check your bedroom’s dimensions. It’s amazing how easily errors can occur and if you under measure then it could be catastrophic.
#2 Decide on what components you want your wardrobe to have.
Wardrobes come in various shapes and sizes and many have distinct styles. Decide whether you need lots of shelves, racks and compartments or whether you need sliding doors or normal opening doors.
#3 Decide on your doors and shutters.
Open wardrobes can look brilliant but then you have to take dust in mind – this isn’t an issue for some rooms or apartments but dustier houses render open wardrobes a bit useless for keeping your clothes in good nick. In terms of doors, sliders are best utilised when you have ample space either side of your wardrobe and normal opening doors are best if you have space in front of the wardrobe.
#4 Decide on lighting.
Having adequate lights for your wardrobe is very important! The inside will be cast into shadow when you stand by your wardrobes entrance and not being able to see your stuff could get very frustrating.
