What Are The Basic Forms of a Wardrobe?

The wardrobes installed in a bedroom are an ideal place to place your accessories and clothing. They also separate the changing area from the other parts of the room and help keep the bedroom clutter-free. If you are planning to install new wardrobes, you first need to understand the three basic forms of wardrobes. This post will outline these wardrobes to help you make an informed choice.

Hinged wardrobes

This type of wardrobe is popular in most homes. Typically, the shutter gets attached to the closet carcass with a hinge. Doors can be designed in various layouts, including the pentagonal, triangular and L-shaped doors, and can have a handle or be handle-less. To operate a hinged wardrobe, you need to have adequate space for opening out the shutter to access your items. One outstanding benefit is that all the shutters can be opened at once to access the whole wardrobe.

Walk-in wardrobes

Walk-in wardrobes have become an ultimate clothes storage option for large homes and apartments. They are suitable for individuals who are into fashion and have a large collection of clothes and still plan on buying more. This closet offers massive storage space one can use for clothes and accessories.

A standard walk-in closet has a hanging and storage space on the three sides of the room. It works best when the wardrobe is installed in an unused room since a lot of space is required. Although this option is aspirational for most people, you should only consider it if you have the space and can handle the extra expenses.

Sliding wardrobe

These wardrobes are designed to glide horizontally on metallic channels normally installed at the bottom and top of the closet. Since the doors glide sideways, they do not require a space to open. This means you will have more space, especially if your bedroom isn't large. Because they don't need a lot of space, these wardrobes are common in rooms with large and medium widths.

Sliding wardrobes look elegant and classy and will help save space — they require less clearance compared to the hinged ones. However, the wardrobes sometimes don't fit perfectly into an asymmetrical room. Additionally, the gliding channels may not last long, particularly if they aren't well built.

Your wardrobe choice should be determined by the shape and size of your room. Consider offering these details to a wardrobe expert and they will share their opinion, helping you make a smart choice.
