Picking the Best Material for Your Wardrobe Storage Solutions

When you buy wardrobes online, you’ll want to consider the following:

• Material used to make the wardrobe

• Style of the wardrobe

• Dimensions of the wardrobe

Though the traditional image of a wardrobe might be a piece of furniture that’s constructed of wood, today’s wardrobes feature other materials including mirrors, glass and MDF. Of course, woods such as oak, maple and teak are available, too.

Each type of material has its pros and cons, what's most important when looking at the wardrobes for sale is to find a wardrobe that fits into your space.

Built-in or Freestanding Wardrobe?

The answer to this question is ... it depends! Freestanding wardrobes are great for rental properties and older homes or smaller sized bedrooms. It also depends what style you are looking for too. Perhaps you just need some additional clothes storage? We have a great range of compact standing hanger style wardrobes.

If you are looking for real storage capacity you can't beat built in robes. These are a permanent fixture, however, a built-in wardrobe is much more flexible and really allows you to maximise your use of space.

The internal layout can me designed specifically to suit your needs in terms of hangings space vs. shelves and drawers etc. A built-in robe can even contain special compartments for jewellery, belts, ties, shoe racks or storage boxes or baskets – literally anything you need to help you feel more organised.

Wardrobe Designs & Styles

No matter what your taste or style preference, we have wardrobes to suit every home. From traditional to modern or clean and contemporary looking, to country or Hamptons style. You can find all these styles and more in both free-standing and built-in wardrobe options.

Fitting Your Wardrobe to Your Décor

Each room of your home has a particular décor, whether it’s contemporary, mid-century modern or traditional. The good news is that you can buy wardrobes online to fit your style beautifully.

If your bedroom or other living space doesn’t have a specific style yet, why not start on the path by buying a wardrobe that you find appealing? That way, your wardrobe can be the focal point in the room, and you can begin to build other furnishings and accent pieces around it.

Finding a Wardrobe That Fits

Wardrobes hold plenty of items, which means they can be very large. Before you buy, make sure you know the dimensions of the freestanding wardrobe, as well as the dimensions of the room you’re putting it in.

Additionally, you should figure out how wide the doorways, hallways and stairwells are. This will prevent any unexpected challenges when you bring your new wardrobe home!

What You Can Store in Your Wardrobe

Your wardrobe will likely be the storage site for your clothing and accessories, but that doesn’t mean you’re limited to storing only apparel inside it. You can store anything in a wardrobe, from memorabilia to towels and documents.

Be creative, and you’ll discover that the wardrobe you buy may just become your best de-cluttering weapon.
