Storage is an important element of any bedroom. A wardrobe will not only perform the useful function of storing clothing and other items, but it will also become a feature of the room.
Choosing a wardrobe is an important part of furnishing a bedroom. It will need to be considered what is going to be stored in the wardrobe, how much room is available and what design will fit with the room’s décor. Wardrobes come in a variety of sizes and designs from ultra-modern to rustic.
For a small bedroom then space is an important consideration. Choosing a wardrobe with folding or sliding doors will mean that the chosen wardrobe will fit into a smaller space. Mirror doors can also be used to make a small bedroom seem larger. Fitted wardrobes can be good for a small bedroom as they don’t waste the space above the wardrobe. Fitted wardrobes can come as part of a bedroom suite, but if the budget is not available for such a suite then there are cheaper alternatives including DIY fitted wardrobes. Of course if fitted wardrobes are chosen then they cannot be moved and will remain in the room.
If the wardrobe is to be used for just storing clothes then one large wardrobe may be the best option. However, if a variety of items are to be stored then it may be better to go for several smaller wardrobes which will hold different items.
The material chosen for a wardrobe will depend on the décor of the room. Wood is an attractive option, but there are plenty of alternatives including plastic or glass and choosing a material other than wood offers more options when it comes to colours.
For a large bedroom then a walk-in wardrobe is the height of luxury. Sliding doors will reduce the amount of space required to create a walk-in wardrobe.
