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.
The large doors can have one of many characteristics such as the knots and gains in the wood producing a beautiful wardrobe door but for added functionality, it can be very common for a full length mirror to be build into one of the double doors. With a triple wardrobe, you usually find a similar mirror down the middle of the wardrobe with a single door either side and in total, giving the wardrobe its triple size definition. Double wardrobes when opened, have a large space for hanging clothing with a clothes rail spanning the full length of the wardrobe. Many people use this hanging rail for every day clothes, work clothes, hanging ties or even a shoe hanging rack which can store a pair of shoes away from the bottom of the wardrobe.
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.
DIY wardrobes tend to be a good deal cheaper than wardrobes installed by professionals. One of the reasons for this is that most DIY wardrobes are made using lower quality wood than the costlier custom built wardrobes are. The wood will still be good quality, but you may find that storing your rock collection in your DIY built wardrobe is not the wisest idea. You will also save a good deal of money if you can do the installation yourself rather than having to call in a professional. Getting the installation company to get the job done can often be costly, which is why so many DIYers around the country love to do things on their own. If you have the necessary skills to do the project yourself, you should definitely consider it.
