Bedroom Wardrobe Designs

Depending on your needs and the type of room that you are furnishing there may be wardrobes that you can consider to be the best wardrobe designs, but a design that you consider to be perfect for your needs may not measure up to someone else’s. Similarly, a wardrobe that works very well in the lounge room may not be large enough to supply you with enough storage in the bedroom.

Bedroom wardrobes are possibly the most commonly used wardrobes and come in a range of different designs. The design you choose will depend on a number of factors including the style that you wish to furnish your bedroom in, the amount of space you have available and whether you want the wardrobe to remain permanently fixed to the room or able to be taken with you when you leave.

When talking about wardrobe designs you might consider one of three wardrobe options: walk-in, fitted or stand-alone.

When designing a fitted wardrobe you will have to take into consideration the type of wardrobe doors you will need. Are they going to be sliding doors or swinging doors? Will they be made from oak, pine, glass or plastic? What color will they be painted? What about the patterns that will feature on the front…or should they be plain? Here is some more information about what to think of when buying a fitted wardrobe.

The stand-alone wardrobe comes in many guises. From the simple single door pine wardrobe to the large bedroom suite with 3 and even 4 doors there is a tremendous range of choices available to you. Buying a stand-alone wardrobe gives you a great deal of flexibility. You don’t necessarily have to walk into a furniture store and hope the wardrobe you think will meet all of your storage needs will be sitting on display. If you have something specific in mind you can commission a wardrobe to be made especially to your specifications, catering to the needs that you believe you will have. This is known as a custom-made wardrobe and there are many master craftsmen available who can build a wardrobe to spec.

Naturally, custom-made wardrobes cost a great deal more than wardrobes that have been made in bulk, but by doing it this way you have more control over the materials used, the dimensions of the cabinet, the interior and its configuration and the detailing that is added to the exterior.

Wardrobe design within the wardrobe itself is a very important factor for maximising the amount of space that is available. There are storage solutions available that will provide you with extra hanging space and added shelf space that you may not have even realized was available. The decision between how much long hanging space and how much short hanging space will have to be worked out before you start stocking your new wardrobe. Take a look at this brief article about wardrobe storage.

Walk in wardrobes are very popular for the simple reason that they provide you with ample amounts of storage that is kept in what appears to be a room all of its own. Who wouldn’t want the luxury of simply walking into a small room where their clothes are hung along the walls and simply making a choice without having to dig through the tight confines of a wardrobe?

The walk in wardrobe is not going to be available for every person for the simple reason that they require more space than many homes can provide.

No matter what type of wardrobe you end up looking for you can be comforted to know that whatever your needs and preferences, they will be covered in a store somewhere. And if they aren't, you can have them made for you.

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.
