Enjoy the Flexibility of A 3 Door Wardrobe

For some people the option of a large wardrobe that is not fixed within the room is an important factor in providing themselves with enough storage space in the bedroom. Wardrobe furniture is one of those bedroom items that provide many options in the attempt to obtain the maximum amount of storage space within the most compact piece of furniture possible.

There are many different types of wardrobes that can give you the storage that you require but the wardrobe that you can be sure will provide a clearly defined interior layout is a 3 door wardrobe.

You can take a look at some of the examples of a typical 3 door wardrobe but essentially what you should be looking for is a bedroom wardrobe that contains a set of double doors on one side that open up to reveal enough hanging space to store a substantial amount of clothes. On the other side behind the third door you are likely to find a set of shelves in which you will be able to store folded clothes. Underneath the main double doors you might either find a set of drawers for more storage or perhaps shoe storage, depending on the way the wardrobe has been designed.

Whichever option you take you are ensuring that you have a flexible piece of furniture that can be adjusted to cater to your specific needs.

By setting up a 3 door wardrobe in such a way you are ensuring that there will be defined spots for each different kind of clothing creating a strong order to your wardrobe storage.

By its very nature a 3 door wardrobe is going to be a large piece of furniture. This requires some careful planning when you go out to buy one. The ability to get the wardrobe through the front door is going to have to be a consideration because if it is too large to manoeuvre into the room it is going to provide some serious issues. One thing you don’t want to have to do is dismantle your new wardrobe on the front veranda.

Your option to get around this particular potential problem is to buy a 3 door wardrobe in flat pack format and assemble it yourself. This is going to be a cheaper option of buying a pre-assembled wardrobe and the assembly is usually quite simple.

3 Door Wardrobe With MirrorAs with other types of wardrobes, 3 door wardrobes are available in a wide variety of wood types starting with pine and running through to the budget choice of melamine. Practicality is an important consideration when buying a 3 door wardrobe too. By increasing the number of doors on the wardrobe you are increasing the complexity of the unit. 3 doors to swing open into the room is going to require a little bit of room in front of the unit.

A nice feature to think about is the 3 door mirror that includes a fitted mirror in the centre as one of the doors. This provides a significant increase in functionality that helps to make the wardrobe an even more useful addition to the bedroom.

Plain or decorative, with mirror or without the 3 door wardrobe is an example of one of the ways in which you can maximize your wardrobe storage without having to take up too much space in the bedroom.

You can expect to be able to buy these wardrobes as pine wardrobes,  an oak wardrobe, an antique wardrobe, a mirror wardrobe, a Mission wardrobe, a cherry wardrobe, mahogany wardrobes, an antique french wardrobe, a wicker wardrobe or maple wardrobes.

Bedroom Furniture Wardrobes – The Choice Is Yours

When it comes to the bedroom there are a few items that most of us would regard as essential members. Take the bed, for instance. It wouldn’t be much of a bedroom if the room didn’t contain a bed of some sort. Almost as important for the bedroom to function properly is a wardrobe of some sort.

Even the smallest bedrooms should be furnished with a place in which the clothes and personal belongings are to be stored. Seeing as the first thing you do in the morning and the last thing you do at night is either take off or put on your clothes, you are going to want to have the place where they are stored to be close by.

If you’re going to furnish the bedroom with a free-standing wardrobe such as a solid oak wardrobe you may as well make the most of it and ensure that it is one that will add something special to the room. Your first choice is to match the wardrobe to the bed if you already have a bed frame that contains some kind of detail work. For example, if the bed’s headboard and footboard are made of some special materials such as wrought iron work set into a stained oak frame, you may want to try to buy a wardrobe that will match it to some degree. This may be as simple as finding black iron handles for the wardrobe doors.

Take a look at the following free standing wardrobes for sale to get an idea of what you will find.

If you can’t find the kind of bedroom wardrobe that you think suits the room appropriately you may want to turn to someone to custom make one to your specifications. By going down this route you will be sure to get the exact wardrobe that you have in mind, just ensure that you have figured out exactly what you want because you will be paying a premium for the work.

A hand-crafted piece of furniture can be something to be cherished and placing it in a room such as the bedroom will mean that you will use it virtually every day which also means that you will be able to appreciate it every day, too.

Another option that can also potentially cost you a lot of money is an antique wardrobe. With an antique bedroom wardrobe you will be getting a piece of furniture that would have been hand-crafted for someone else many years ago. Generally speaking the wardrobes that were created before the advent of mass-produced furniture were made with a single goal in mind – to last a long, long time.

If you buy an antique wardrobe you can be fairly certain that you will be buying a solid piece of furniture. However, because it is so old it is highly recommended that you thoroughly inspect it before you buy because it is possible that it hasn’t been perfectly treated throughout the years.

It is also possible to buy yourself a wardrobe that has the look of an antique but has been recently manufactured. With this type of classical wardrobe you have the dual advantage of the looks of an antique bedroom wardrobe with the modern production techniques. You can be more certain that the wardrobe has not been beaten around for years and you will have the possible security of being able to refer any problems with your purchase to a store that is still in business.

There are many different options available to all of us as we search around for the most suitable. Bedroom wardrobe furniture can be mixed and matched to suit our tastes, but generally, if you have a maple wardrobe your room will look much more balanced with maple bedside tables and a maple chest of drawers. The tones and the wood grain will ensure that the room will look properly thought out.

Made To Measure Wardrobes

In terms of free standing wardrobes you generally have two choices when it comes to the types of wardrobe furniture you are going to buy: pre-fabricated and made to measure. The most common type of wardrobe is the pre-fabricated one where we might walk into a furniture showroom and pick out the wardrobe from the floor display depending on factors such as size and design. We basically try to get a best fit style and size and take it home in the hope that it will match the rest of our furniture.

The alternative option is to visit a cabinetmaker to order a made to measure wardrobe. If your storage needs are unique, the size of the required cabinet is unusually large or small or the shape has to be designed to fit a specific space in the home you might want to get the wardrobe made for you.

Obviously, made to measure wardrobes are going to cost more than the wardrobes that are produced in larger numbers. A made to measure, custom built wardrobe is going to be a unique, one of a kind piece of furniture that is handcrafted by an expert craftsman and so you will be paying a premium for this kind of service. The resulting wardrobe should be a solid piece of furniture that is going to last for a long, long time.

The big advantage of buying a made to measure wardrobe is the control that you will have over ever facet of the wardrobe design and construction process. You can add all of the decorative features that you want to the outside while also ensuring that the interior contains the kind of storage features that will serve your needs. If you need a larger area for shoe storage then you can ensure that this will be built in.

A made to measure wardrobe is the type of furniture item that you would class as a luxury item. Many people would consider the purchase of a wardrobe as the sort of thing you would spend an afternoon over. However, by spending extra time and money over the task you can turn your new wardrobes into more than just a place to store your clothes and other belongings. This kind of wardrobe could become the feature piece of the room around which the rest of the design would depend.

Taking the made to measure option is possibly only the choice that those at the top end of the market might be willing to make. If you have no other option because of the complete uniqueness of the area that you want to turn into storage space then make sure you have done your homework beforehand to ensure you get a cabinet that completely meets your needs.

A White Wardrobe Adds Appeal

With the fascination with the shabby chic style of decorating, white furniture has become much more sought after and accepted as the latest fashion statement for the discerning home owner. A white wardrobe represents this style perfectly with the simple elegance of either white or off-white to give you the clean, crisp freshness of a look that never seems to go out of style.

Although natural wood is a clean finish for a wardrobe, a white wardrobe is a great alternative for its simple elegance and the fact that it complements most décor choices. A white wardrobe can be placed in a variety of different settings and still look very much at home. It’s not a color that is going to work as a contrast piece unless the rest of the room is particularly dark, but it gives you the option of featuring in any modern room.

When you paint your wardrobe white, you don’t have to necessarily go for a white that completely obliterates the natural wood grain finish. A white wash can accent the fine grain of a wood wardrobe and can actually enhance the appeal of the wood.

This may particularly be the case if you have bought a pine wardrobe and want to let the distinctive grain and knots that makes pine such a unique type of wood to show through. Choosing a subtle white lacquer or something similar will create a wardrobe that is unspeakably elegant and classy.

The simple lines of a white wardrobe in a modern bedroom will add fresh appeal to the room, serving to help brighten it while also giving you great storage options. The wardrobe may not necessarily be simple, with an ornately decorated piece becoming more subtle and visually appealing when given a white coating.

There are quite a few different options available that you can use to finish your white wardrobe. You may choose to go for the distressed look, the faded washed look or the high gloss satin finish. The nice thing to remember about a white wardrobe is that it will complement just about any décor without appearing garish or out of place.

The white wardrobe is a design option that is always available to use if no other option appeals to you. It can be used as either a contrast or a complement, just as capable of blending in as standing out. It may be fresh or it may be made to look shabby, yet it will still add appeal to the room.

Many Options of Wardrobe Furniture

Part of the furniture that belongs in the bedroom and most would consider vital to the day to day function of the room is a wardrobe. Large or small, free standing or fitted, the wardrobe is a necessary storage piece in a room where we store a lot of our belongings.

But a wardrobe could be considered many different pieces of furniture all housed within the one unit. When you design your own wardrobe you get the opportunity to add as many or as few of them as you need to make it as multi-functional as possible.

Your wardrobe furniture may consist of a cupboard, a set of drawers, a clothes hanger, an armoire, a dressing table, a desk, a mirror, a shoe rack. Some wardrobes can be simple stand alone furniture items that are feature pieces in their own right. They may be built in or fitted wardrobes or a complete room, otherwise known as walk-in wardrobes.

Harking back through history a wardrobe was a showy piece of furniture that was intricately decorated and marked the wealth of the clothes that were housed within. The name gives away the original use of these items of furniture as the place where the king or nobleman stored their robes. Such a lofty treasure that was stored within required that it looked the part and so many of the wardrobes throughout the ages were beautiful works of art.

Nowadays the wardrobes that sit in our bedrooms are more functional than decorative, which is not to say that they are not striking in their own right. The important factor that every wardrobe should achieve is that all of your clothes and assorted sundry items fit inside it. That being said, having a gorgeous antique wardrobe in your bedroom is a very satisfying feeling indeed and adds to the ambience of the room.

And this is where the importance in making use of the different individual furniture pieces that make up a well-designed wardrobe comes into play. Rather than having to buy a clothes hanger and a tallboy and a chest of drawers and a mirror you can design all of these into a single unit. You can hide them all away behind a stylish set of wardrobe doors if you wish.

Planning the way in which your wardrobe is going to be put together and which pieces of furniture are going to be placed within it is all part of the fun of buying a fitted wardrobe. If you do it right you will have ample room for all of your belongings plus a little left over to allow for growth. You will also have a bedroom that is uncluttered by random furniture items dotted around the room, a necessity if you don’t have a particularly large bedroom in the first place.
