The type of wardrobe you choose will largely depend on its usage

Sliding wardrobes  are perfect in terms of looks and storage

Wardrobes should not only provide sufficient storage space for all your belongings, but it should also complement the decor and style of your bedroom.

Types of wardrobes

Different people require different things from a wardrobe. There are plenty of options out there when it comes to wardrobes. The following are the three main choices.

Free-Standing wardrobes: The advantage  of this type of  a wardrobe is its mobility. Unlike other types of wardrobes, a free-standing one  can be easily moved around a room or even a different room or house. These wardrobes come in different sizes, but even the largest can often be a little short of space inside. Another thing is that space needs to be left in front of the wardrobe for opening the doors. Most commonly , free-standing wardrobes come in a wood finish  although there are also plenty other  options such as steel , plastic  etc.  in the market.

Fitted sliding door wardrobes: Fitted wardrobes  are  often considered old fashioned, but this isn’t the case at all  now as  there are a lot of modern, sophisticated options in  the market right now. The biggest benefit of fitted wardrobes is the extra space you create by utilizing them. Since, they are usually floor to ceiling, extra storage can be fitted above your hanging space. Fitting a sliding door wardrobe into an alcove in a room is a great way to utilize an often wasted space. Sliding doors also means that space isn’t required for opening the doors outward. A wide range of finishes , means that you are sure to find doors to match the decor of your room. Sliding door wardrobes aren’t as cheap or easy to replace as  free standing wardrobes, mainly because of the sliding mechanism.

Walk in wardrobes: Walk in wardrobes are the ultimate luxury when it comes to clothes storage and are fairly rare. For people who are  into fashion and collect a large amount of clothing over time, walk in wardrobes can be the perfect solution. A standard walk in wardrobe would have hanging and storage space on every side with perhaps a chair on  one side or a bench in the middle. Walk in wardrobes  are  versatile  and  in most cases be designed as per the users  requirements . A walk in wardrobe could be added to a bedroom with a partition along  with sliding doors, or even more easily  a spare room could be converted. This is a good  option if you have an unused room , as the only costs involved are for fitting shelving and hanging space. Unfortunately, the space requirement for a walk in wardrobe rules out  the option for those with small to medium sized homes.

Keep in mind the Following before buying a wardrobe

Consider what you want: Before you choose a wardrobe, give a deep thought what you exactly want; do you just need a place to store your daily belongings or do you need a wardrobe with enough hanging room? Depending on your needs, you can easily make a choice between a  free standing wardrobe with a chest of drawers or a fitted wardrobe cabinet. While some bedroom armories have separate drawers  but at the end the type of wardrobe will largely depend on its usage in your bedroom.

Measure the available space: No wardrobe is good  enough if it does not fit well in the space. Measure exact measurements before you plan the wardrobe, this will help you plan all the storage requirements  which must be met for a long time .

Style of the wardrobe: Remember the wardrobe you pick will remain in your bedroom for a long period of time; whether you pick a chest of drawers, wardrobe closet, armoire or wardrobe cabinets, make sure you pick one that maintains your bedroom style and complements the room decor.

Setting the wardrobe in your bedroom is a   task  to be  entrusted  to  professionals and there are many companies that specialize in factory fitted wardrobes  which saves  your time .
