Wardrobes are no longer just a space to store your clothes in. They are now a statement in style and a focal point that enhances the décor of your bedroom. And not just the bedroom, they can be customized for every room that they form a part of.
We understand that designing a wardrobe isn’t as simple as choosing a piece of furniture. Which is why we have put together a few specifics that will help you get started. Read on and get a step closer to the wardrobe of your dreams!
Deciding On The Core Material Used
Solid wood and the many kinds of engineered wood are the popularly used materials for wardrobes in India. Solid wood, although strong and durable, can burn a big hole in your pocket. Which is where, engineered wood comes into play, and gives you strength and durability at affordable prices.
Designing The Sections Inside
How you want the sections inside your wardrobe is an entirely personal choice. Some people prefer separating all their clothes and accessories into separate drawers and shelves, while a few others like all accessories in a single drawer. Experts suggest that having plenty of hanging space in the cupboards makes organizing clothes easier and keeps clothes safe against creasing. Keep shelf space only for nightclothes and bags, and large drawers for innerwear and accessories. Also, it’s a good idea to keep shelves at the top to a minimum as they can’t be conveniently accessed every day.
Choosing The Hardware For Doors
Your wardrobes can either have hinged doors or sliding ones. What you choose will depend on the available space you have in the bedroom and your style preference.
Sliding doors are a great idea in bedrooms where the available space is less and you don’t want to waste space making available precious square footage for the doors to swing open. Swing doors on the other hand, can be used in larger bedrooms and also if you prefer to have a look at your entire wardrobe at one go.
Choosing Colors, Textures And Designs On The Exteriors Of Doors
Sky is the limit when it comes to choosing the colors or textures of the exteriors of your wardrobes. You can decide to add a splash of color to your bedroom by choosing a wardrobe in a bright color, contrasting with the rest of the room, or opt to keep things understated by having your wardrobe blending in well with the walls and furniture around it. The materials you can choose for your doors could be laminates, acrylics, membranes and even glass.
