There is nothing quite like the charm of an antique wardrobe. It whispers in the language of the past, telling a long and interesting story. The past is portrayed in a patina that defines the beauty and individuality of the piece. This is not to say that a new wardrobe is completely lacking in character and beauty. There are advantages to both new and antique wardrobes. The choice of an antique wardrobe versus a new one generally comes down to personal preference. But there are certain factors that can influence your decision.
This might be something decided upon by your child, or you may wish to choose a style that suits the rest of your house. If you live in a cottage, a white glossy wardrobe may look out of place, but an antique pine wardrobe with just the right handles, will look like it has lived there forever. Likewise, a modern and stylish house could carry off a sleek childrens wardrobe with mirrored doors on one, or both, of the doors. If you cant find the exact wardrobe for your child that you want, you can also customise a wardrobe into just the one you want. For example, you can change the handles to something more modern, or sleek, or funky, just like you might change the buttons on a coat. You can paint a wardrobe - a wooden wardrobe can become cerise pink for a girl, or blue for a boy, or something more neutral, such as crisp white.
Buying nursery furniture is as difficult as buying furniture for the rest of the house. Parents to be or first-time parents do a great deal of research about nursery furniture and bring home the best for their little bundle of joy. However, not many of them pay the right amount of attention when buying a wardrobe. The most common mistake they commit is that they bring home a wardrobe that would work fine only in those baby years and would become useless when their little one would grow into a toddler. Nursery wardrobes are usually shorter than the standard ones and are not great for long-term use. So, a wardrobe should be of a size that it stays with the baby when he/she grows into a young child.
