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.
Wardrobes span back many years and have come a long way in both their design, size and build quality. We all remember back when we were younger, of our parents having a significant piece of furniture in the bedroom and that being their wardrobe. For many families a double wardrobe in each bedroom is sufficient which means the double wardrobe is the most popular size of wardrobe. Nomatter what manufacturer has designed and built the wardrobe, each make all stems from the same basic qualifications which give a wardrobe its characteristics. The first being the large wide double doors which have a handle or latch to open the door. With many wardrobes, pine is used to build these pieces of furniture as this wood usually weights less than oak and is cheaper to due to this fast growing quality.
When looking into wardrobes, many people find that they prefer to install the wardrobe themselves rather than get a professional to do it. The Do It Yourself wardrobes can save you a good deal of money, but it is vital that you have the necessary skills to install the DIY wardrobe correctly. If you dont have the skill required to install the wardrobe, you should definitely consider calling in a professional to get the job done. One of the main things that make the DIY option such a popular choice among many is the fact that they are able to do the project themselves. Rather than having to call out to get a professional to come do the installation, many people find that their confidence in their handyman skills grows as they install their own DIY wardrobes.
Choosing the colour is the best place to start. First, you need to establish if you would like just one colour, or something more funky, with more than one colour. Plain coloured wardrobes are obviously easier to find, both on and offline. They will also be a more practical buy, as a smooth, plain wooden wardrobe, or a crisp and clean white one, will go with almost all colours of bedding. Remember, if you choose a two-tone, or multicoloured childrens wardrobe, you will be limited in the colour of bedding you can choose. Perhaps its best to have the wardrobe, and other furniture, as the blank canvas, and to add splashes of colour with cushions, bedding and other goodies. Also remember, a pink wardrobe cant be handed down to your next child if its a boy, and vice versa.
