Nobody likes to be late to events, meetings or dates. However, if your clothes are disorganised, you’ll end up spending a lot of time searching for your desired outfit. Investing in a functional and practical wardrobe can make it easier to find what you what to wear. Besides saving you time, wardrobes also keep your bedroom neat and tidy. After all, walking into a messy bedroom after a long day is not something most people look forward to.
If you want to invest in a new addition to your bedroom, here are some different wardrobe types, with their advantages and disadvantages.
Hinged wardrobes are the most popular type. They borrow their name from their design which features hinges on each door.
The most significant advantage of hinged wardrobes is affordability. So regardless of your budget, you can find a suitable storage solution. These closets are available in many sizes, styles, and finishes. Regarding materials, wood and plastic are the main options, with the latter being the cheaper option.
On the downside, hinged wardrobes require more room to open and close. This makes them unsuitable for tight spaces. In addition, the hinges may weaken over time, forcing you to get a replacement.
Sliding Door Wardrobes
As the name suggests, these closets have two or more panels that slide over each other. Materials used to make the panels include glass, metal, and wood.
Sliding door wardrobes use space optimally, as they don’t require a lot of room when opening and closing. This makes them ideal for small rooms, such as studio apartments. Moreover, they’re stylish and add a luxurious feel to your home’s décor.
However, sliding door closets are more expensive than hinged wardrobes. You must also be careful when opening or closing the doors to avoid damaging the rollers.
Mirrored wardrobes are hinged or sliding door closets with a mirror on the outside. The mirror has two functions – first, its reflective properties create the illusion of space. Secondly, you can use the mirror when dressing.
Like sliding door wardrobes, mirrored units are costly. You must also take care to avoid breaking the glass and add a little bit of extra cleaning time to ensure the mirror is not grubby.
If every homeowner had an infinite budget, they’d install a walk-in closet. These are the ultimate storage solutions. They have several features like designated hanging spaces, multiple shelves, drawers, a vanity, dressing tables, etc. Some bespoke designs also have corner shelves for storing collections and souvenirs.
Walk-in wardrobes offer countless customisation possibilities. You can combine various aspects of other wardrobe types, such as hinged shelves, sliding door hanging spaces, and mirrored dressing tables into one huge storage space. The only limits are money and creativity.
As you’d expect, walk-in wardrobes are costly. However, their beauty, longevity, and customisation make them worthwhile investments.
Wardrobes are a must-have piece of furniture. Fortunately, there’s an option for every budget. If you have enough money, walk-in closets are the best choice because of the customisation options. Sliding door wardrobes are ideal for people with substantial savings but not too much money to spare. Finally, hinged wardrobes are a good starting point if you have a shoestring budget.
