How To Choose The Right Wardrobe

Along with chests of drawers, wardrobes are essential pieces of furniture for keeping your bedroom tidy. But just what type of wardrobe is right for your bedroom? Below are a few considerations that can help you choose the perfect wardrobe.

Who is it for?

The style and size of the wardrobe may depend on who it is for. Is it a wardrobe just for you? Or are you sharing it with a partner? A larger wardrobe may be necessary if it’s for more than one person’s clothes. When exploring furniture for your nursery, consider something bright and cheery. Such wardrobes are typically smaller, but you may decide that something larger is better suited if it’s going to contain multiple kids’ clothes. 

What’s your budget?

Brand new wardrobes can be quite expensive. If you’re on a tight budget, you may want to consider buying something second-hand. Just make sure that it is still in good condition and that it won’t cost you too much to transport to your home. Flat-pack furniture is generally a lot easier and cheaper to transport - you won’t have to pay high delivery fees and you may even be able to pick it up yourself without having to use a van. Being willing to spend more could open up your options and even allow you to consider custom wardrobes. These can sometimes be paid for in instalments to make them more affordable, although you may have to pay interest fees.

How much space have you got?

It’s important to measure the space first so that you know exactly what size wardrobe to go for. If you’re buying a wardrobe pre-assembled, you may also have to measure corridors and doorways leading to your bedroom - you don’t want to buy a wardrobe that’s too big to manoeuvre into your home. Custom fitted wardrobes are a popular solution that can help you make the most of a small or oddly-shaped bedroom. These wardrobes are designed to fit the dimension of your bedroom and can be assembled on site by a professional. Just bear in mind that because they will be custom fitted, you won’t be able to take them with you if you move home.

What clothes will you store in it?

The most basic wardrobes simply contain a rail for hanging clothes. However, others come with drawers and shelves. These cupboards are ideal for storing clothes that you may not want to hang up such as underwear and t-shirts. These wardrobes could also be useful for storing non-clothing items like towels, hairdryers, jewellery or make-up. 

What material and finish?

Ideally you want a wardrobe that matches the rest of the furniture in your room. Try to match wood tones or look for furniture that is the same colour. Lighter wardrobes will reflect light and may look better in a smaller bedroom. Darker wardrobes may have a more sophisticated feel and can look dramatic against lighter walls. You should also consider the option of mirrored furniture - this can be ideal if you don’t have room for a separate full-length mirror in your bedroom and could add brightness and depth to the room.
