The cost of antique wardrobes can be prohibitive. The expense of any restorative work performed is added into the price. The history of the piece may have significance; therefore, you are essentially buying a piece of history. An alternative to this would be to search flea markets for antique wardrobes and do the restoration work yourself. This allows you to create a wardrobe that is uniquely yours. However, this can be a very time-consuming task depending on the age, condition and size of the wardrobe. Purchasing an antique wardrobe is environmentally responsible. You are buying an existing piece and preserving our natural resources. There is a very large market currently for antique wardrobes. They combine the functionality of todays furniture with the character and beauty of history, while not taking anything from the environment.
However, if you are only looking for a simple custom design wardrobe, you will find that the regular custom design wardrobe options will be sufficient. The regular custom designs allow you to choose the dimensions, designs, and style of your wardrobe from existing models offered by the designer. All of the options that you are presented with are already in existence and have been manufactured by the wardrobe design company, but you are able to customize the installation and design. Using a custom wardrobe doesnt mean that you are getting one made specifically for you according to your request. You are getting a wardrobe that is already in existence, and it is being modified to meet your space and style requirements. This makes the price of these designer wardrobe options much cheaper, as they dont need to be made by hand. Seeing as they are part of an existing design by the manufacturing company, a custom designer wardrobe is much cheaper than a bespoke solution would be.
Depending on the size and make of the wardrobe can depend on the next feature of the double wardrobe, the extra space above the hanging rail. With many wardrobes, additional shelving can be found with a strong solid shelve made from the same wood used to produce the wardrobe. This can be used for many items from the bedroom as the depth from the top of the wardrobe to the shelf is usually quite a few inches in height. A feature which can be very useful but not as common is an added drawer or series of small drawers found at the bottom of the wardrobe. This means the hanging rail can be higher up to provide the same amount of hanging space, or alternatively, the same higher as a wardrobe without additional drawers but provides hanging space which is lacking in height.
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.
