Hitting the right balance between style and purpose can be finding the right balance of style and functionality can be a task but it is certainly essential. Let's look at a few things that can guide you to select the right wardrobe design with functionality:
1) Selecting the Type
The type of wardrobe design is one of the important decisions you make when looking for a bedroom wardrobe. Choosing between free-standing or built one can be challenging. A free standing one can be easily moved or transferred to another room or even can be moved to another house in case you decide to shift. On the contrary, a custom built in wardrobe takes time to build but it gives you freedom to select the internal skeleton, colour, finish and material with which it is built.
2) What matters is size
The wardrobe should fit in the allotted space in the bedroom. It shouldn't be so huge and looming that everything else in the room is overshadowed yet it should fulfil your needs. The size mainly depends on the usage, intentions and number of people using the wardrobe.
In case your wardrobe has a separate or dedicated area and you are looking to keep a lot of things in it, going for an overwhelming one might just be right!
With a broad spectrum of wardrobe design styles in the market, choosing the wardrobe design can be a tough decision. The primary thing to keep in mind is that the design should definitely be in sync with the theme, furniture and overall look of the bedroom. For example, if a room is lightly coloured, a contrasting dark colour wardrobe can be the highlight of the room. If so, carefully choose the finish and materials to perfectly fit in the room.
4) Storage Needs
The storage requirement for your clothing collection should be a key component when closing on your wardrobe design. For example, if your wardrobe mainly consists of dresses and formal wear, sufficient hanging space should be included in the design. If your wardrobe is accessories dominant, multiple drawers would be a good center of design-that way you can organise all kinds of accessories.
4) Choosing the materials
The material of the wardrobe decides the life of the wardrobe. While wood is the most common material used, acrylic and laminates are also liked by many. The chosen material should undoubtedly go with the look of the room, like for a colourful children's room with wooden furniture, we can use acrylic that allows us to create colourful shapes to add to the wardrobe.
Make sure to use the material that is not only durable but also does the job of protecting the contents of the wardrobe, along with adding a pleasing touch to the room.
6) Look of the Room
If you are looking for a clean and simple look of the room, you can go for a compact storage design that hides everything. You can also have hidden storage compartments, thus keeping the design minimum. If splendour is the theme, then a large wardrobe with beautiful carvings on the doors and extravagant handles makes a good choice.
7) When you need to save space.
Space saving designs add functionality and unique design without taking toll on the space. To get more space out of a room, instead of building a wardrobe on an empty wall, you can custom design the cabinets around the windows or around your television, or guess what even around your bed.
8) Door Style
The door design and mechanism are as important as the interior of the wardrobe. Common doors styles are swing doors, sliding doors or latest automatic doors. Swing doors are preferred and they work best for large rooms that allow doors to open and have enough space to walk around when open. Sliding doors do the opposite and save on space and compliment wide wardrobe designs elegantly.
9) Accessorised wardrobes
Some prefer wardrobes that have accessories such as mirrors, fancy hooks added to their design. This enhances the aesthetic quality of the wardrobe design and the look of the room, as well as enhancing its functionality. For example, a round or oval mirror is sufficient for a small wardrobe, a rectangular mirror is more likely to go perfectly with big ones. An inbuilt mirror saves space as it eliminates the need of self-standing mirror from the room.
