A wardrobe is an essential component in any and every house. Like a bed is required to sleep in, a wardrobe is required store our clothes in (sometimes shoes included). This especially pertains to people or families who have an extensive collection of clothes, shoes and accessories. The most important aspect of any wardrobe is functionality and versatility. Customizable space is especially useful, where we can modify the space available for different needs. Hence, the drawers, hangers, boxes inside the wardrobe play an important role deciding the efficiency of a wardrobe. Apart from readymade wardrobes, there are also options available for customized wardrobes where we can create our own wardrobe with sliding doors or hinged doors; whatever is right for us and what we wear. Many companies who provide customized wardrobes let the buyer combine individual frames together to suit their style. They also let the buyer design the inside of the wardrobe, providing them with a big choice of shelves, drawers, clothes rails and so on.
Evaluating the space will allow you to know what type of wardrobe you want, whether fitted, built in, walk in, or free standing. Once you have determined the type of wardrobe you desire, you will then need to take the measurements for your wardrobe design. You will need to measure the height, the width, and the depth of the space for your wardrobe, and these will need to be written down on a paper. Make sure to account for the space around the wardrobe, as well as the any incline of the roof. If you are an architect or an artist, you can easily draw up the plans for your own website. If not, you can simply draw a basic sketch with the measurements and rough layout of your wardrobe to take to a wardrobe designer. These designers will then help you draw up a clearer wardrobe design, which they will then take to their wardrobe design books.
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.
Establishing your price is one of the first steps. Do you want to buy cheap, and replace the wardrobe in a few years time? Or would you rather invest into something that will last your child, maybe right into their teens? This is an individual thing, and there is no right or wrong. There are also plenty of cheap childrens wardrobes on the market, that look way more expensive than they actually are. Shop around, is the key! Whilst a wooden wardrobe for children will add a warming touch, there are many wardrobes made from other materials that have, for example, been finished in high gloss, for a funky and modern feel. Pay careful attention to the handles - metal handles on a white gloss wardrobe can be just the finishing touch, as can smooth, round wooden handles on a pine wardrobe. This will obviously be dependent on the size of the room. To squeeze more storage space out of your wardrobe, you may want to consider buying a childrens wardrobe that has storage drawers as well. Also look at the hanging space internally - are there two rails, or one?
