Corner Wardrobe Designs

Generally speaking, the reason most people go looking for corner wardrobe designs is to give themselves the most appropriate wardrobe they can possibly create in a small space. The types of designs that you have at your disposal are actually endless because custom made furniture can be designed to fit into whatever room or space is available. But there are two corner wardrobe designs that are the most common what buying a pre-made wardrobe.

The first of these types of corner wardrobes is the basic L-shaped wardrobe. This type of wardrobe looks kind of like two wardrobes that run along the adjoining walls and meet up in the corner. The option of what types of doors you place on these wardrobes is also something that could prove to be a difficult decision to have to make. Sliding doors or swinging doors can both be fitted on an L-shaped wardrobe.

One of the features of an L-shaped wardrobe is that it is possible to have them made with one side longer than the other. These types of wardrobe provide you with a sizeable amount of storage while maximizing the room left in the bedroom to walk around in.

The other option for the corner storage problem is the 45 degree corner wardrobe unit. This is the type of wardrobe that is fitted into the corner with the back of the unit angled to fit the space. The door of this type of corner unit faces the room at a 45 degree angle to the walls and grants you with open access to the entire wardrobe.

The bonus of using the 45 degree angled corner wardrobe is that the storage space area is very deep, reaching further in to the wall than expected. The amount of space required is not large yet you are afforded a sizable storage cabinet. Some people find that the depth of the wardrobe can be quite large and if they are already pressed for space in the room the 45 degree corner unit sticks too far out into the room and actually feels as though it is taking up more room than is necessary.

Unusually shaped rooms and corners that are not 90 degrees or that are graduated may require a custom designed corner wardrobe. The only difference with having one of these types of wardrobes installed will be the fact that they will cost more because of the special work required in getting the fit exactly right.

A further option, particularly if you feel you are handy enough with the tools and wood is to create your own corner wardrobe. For some this is going to be a major undertaking and will require greater than usual woodworking skills.

The ideal type of situation to place a corner wardrobe is as a display cabinet with the 45 degree wardrobe the only choice you would want to consider. These wardrobes would be glass-fronted and feature display shelves that will allow you to show off your finish crockery, crystal collection or Wedgewood.
