These bedroom wardrobe designs feature a variety of different options for rooms that don’t have a closet or need additional storage. After your bed, your dresser or wardrobe is the biggest piece of furniture in your bedroom. How you choose a wardrobe for your bedroom will depend on the space you have, the storage you need and your own personal style.
A wardrobe is basically a standing closet used for storing clothes. There are two basic types: freestanding and fitted wardrobe. The basic difference is a fitted wardrobe is often built into the wall and cannot be moved while a freestanding wardrobe is a standalone piece of furniture that can be moved.
A freestanding wardrobe is a design that has been around for centuries. One of the classic names for a freestanding wardrobe is armoire; tall wooden cabinets with closed doors hiding shelves and drawers for storage. Today, wardrobes can also be made from cloth, plastic or even metal and come in different styles from elaborate and vintage to sleek and contemporary.
A fitted wardrobe is one built by a contractor to specifically fit into your bedroom. Because it is custom build, you can specify the storage options you want. However, one the fitted wardrobe is built, it is permanent so if you redecorate, you will either have to get a new wardrobe built or work with the wardrobes style.
Before you decide on a wardrobe, make sure it fits. Not just in style but also in dimension. Measure the available room area to make sure the length and the height of the wardrobe can be accommodated while still making sure that you can fit other furnishings and move around.
