It’s clear that you need to buy wardrobes for your own bedroom, your guest bedroom, and anywhere else in your home that requires convenient, versatile, and practical storage. Read on for some advice from our furniture experts on how to effectively buy wardrobes for any room in your home.
Make sure to measure before you buy wardrobes
As with all furniture, taking the measurements of your room and your available space should be your first step when you begin the process to buy wardrobes. Your two considerations will be the size of your bedroom and the size of the wardrobe itself, and both are important when you are selecting the best wardrobe for your space.
When you are measuring your bedroom for wardrobes, you will want to make sure that there is enough space for the actual piece of furniture, of course, but you also need enough space to comfortably move around. If you are opting for a wardrobe with doors that open out, you will need to take that into consideration as well — and if you are short on space, you might opt for sliding door wardrobes instead.
Similarly, if you are thinking about buying wardrobes with drawers or mirrored doors, you need to make additional considerations in terms of measurements. Wardrobes with drawers obviously need space to pull the drawers out and access the clothing within. And if you choose a wardrobe with a mirrored door, you want room to be able to step back and look at your outfit in full.
Decide on your bedroom storage needs
A wardrobe traditionally features an open space behind one or more drawers, with a rail so that you can hang up clothes that could get creased or wrinkled. However, you can also find wardrobes with drawers, shelves, and other features that add additional storage options to this furniture type.
When you are choosing the right wardrobe for your bedroom, it makes sense to think about what types of clothing you plan to keep in it. If you have a number of long coats or dresses, then drawers that take up space at the bottom of your wardrobe will not allow your clothes to hang to their full lengths. However, if you are using your wardrobe to organise shoes, bedding, and other items that you can’t hang, then drawers and shelves might be a great addition.
Wardrobes also come in a variety of widths. You can choose from single, double, triple, or even quadruple wardrobes, depending on the amount of storage space you need. When you are getting ready to buy wardrobes, you may want to do so in conjunction with selecting your other bedroom storage solutions — like nightstands, dressers, chests of drawers, and blanket boxes — to make sure that you have everything you need to keep your clothes and belongings safely and neatly organised.
Think about the perfect wardrobe style
Most wardrobes have a similar look. Almost all wardrobes are made of wood, and obviously they all have a rectangular shape. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some stylistic choice when you’re selecting the best wardrobe for your bedroom. Choose from traditional or modern wardrobe designs, and buy wardrobes that are perfectly suited for your decor style.
Many wardrobes are part of larger bedroom furniture collections. This means you can buy wardrobes that match your bed, nightstands, and other essential bedroom pieces. If you want the ideal bedroom setup without any hassle, shop from a range to ensure easy coordination.
Of course, if a bedroom collection doesn’t have exactly what you’re looking for, or if you’re after a more eclectic look, you have plenty of standalone wardrobe options as well. Whether you prefer a crisp white-painted finish, stately mahogany construction, or a lovely two-tone design, you can shop wardrobes that will meet all your needs.
