Why Wardrobes with Drawers are an Effective Storage Solution in Your Home

If you were to make a list of the most essential pieces of furniture in your home, wardrobes would likely come in just below your bed, sofa, and dining table. One of the best storage solutions available for your space, a good wardrobe will help keep your clothes organised and looking great. 

Wardrobes are also a great pick for your bedroom — or storage elsewhere in the house — because you can find a number of different configurations and options for features that will suit your exact needs. Most wardrobes have a main storage space with a hanging rail, but you can also select from wardrobes with drawers or shelves (or both!) that will offer additional storage options for your clothes, accessories, and belongings. 

In particular, we think that wardrobes with drawers are a great option not only for your bedroom, but for convenient organisation and storage throughout your home. Read on to learn why we love this wardrobe type, and how you can select the best variations to suit your space. 

Choose wardrobes with drawers for your bedroom

Obviously, wardrobes are an appealing option for all the clothing you want to hang up. The main function of your wardrobe is to hold bulky furniture that would be awkward or unwieldy to fold, formalwear that you don’t want to get wrinkled, or dresses and pants and other clothing types that would be traditionally hung. 

However, some clothing is better off being folded and tucked away on a shelf or in a drawer. Heavy sweaters can be weighed down on hangers, so it is better to fold them so that they retain their shapes. Activewear, t-shirts, and other casual clothes are easy to fold, and doing so frees up space in your wardrobe for the clothes that are better off on the hanging rail. 

Therefore, having some drawers available in your bedroom is important to best take care of your clothing. While you may have a separate dresser or chest of drawers, wardrobes with drawers are also a great option. Offering space-saving convenience and letting you keep all of your clothing in one piece of furniture, combination wardrobes are a versatile and stylish option for your bedroom. 

Combination wardrobes elsewhere in your home

While most of us use wardrobes in our bedrooms, you might also find wardrobes useful in other rooms of your house. A wardrobe in your entryway may take up more space in the hall than a coat rack, but it can make for an appealing alternative due to its extra features and benefits. In addition to holding jackets and coats, wardrobes with drawers will also have space for outdoor accessories like hats, scarves, and gloves, making it easy to find what you need when you’re on your way out the door. 

A wardrobe with drawers can also serve unconventional yet appealing functions elsewhere in your house. Use one as a media cabinet, with your television or stereo filling the main space, and organise remotes, DVDs, or records within the drawers. Put a wardrobe in your hallway or bathroom if you don’t have a linen closet, and use the drawers for small items like hand towels or pillowcases. You could even use a set of wardrobes to divide up a room or open-plan area, not only helping to structure the space but also providing built-in storage. 

Drawer storage wardrobes or wardrobes with shelves? 

Wardrobes with drawers are a versatile and convenient addition to your house, but some combination wardrobe options feature shelves rather than drawers. There are merits to each of these wardrobe types, and you can learn more about the pros and cons of shelves versus drawers in our previous blog post

Or, you may want to utilise every type of storage feature available and select a combi wardrobe that has both drawers and shelves as well as the traditional hanging rail. There are plenty of possibilities from which you can choose when you are shopping for wardrobes that offer additional storage throughout your home.
