How To Choose The Right Wardrobe For Your Bedroom

The two most important things in a bedroom are the bed and the wardrobe. For the first one, finding the right balance of style and comfort is easy. As for the second one, things are a little different. There are lots of things to take into consideration before choosing a design or a style.

If you prefer the room to look clean and simple, then you can opt for a compact design which hides everything inside. Just figure out the right compartmentalization. You should include a large space for hangers, a few shelves for folded up clothes, drawers for small items and accessories and perhaps even a few secret compartments.

All these compartments can remain hidden behind large sliding doors or panels. This way the design remains minimalist and you can use the opportunity to play with colors and shapes when decorating the rest of the room.

To save space in the room, instead of dedicating an empty wall to your wardrobe, you can custom design the cabinetry around the windows. Take this opportunity to also include one or two cozy window nooks and reading corners.

Consider mirrored doors for your wardrobe if you want the room to look a little more spacious and open or if you simply want the surface to reflect the beautiful views outside. Here’s a design with a symmetrical structure and a mirrored door at the center.

All of the variations presented above are nice options for those of you who prefer the usual closet space in the bedroom. But there’s also another possibility. Instead of hiding everything behind closed doors, you can opt for open storage.

In this case, you’d be displaying all your clothes and accessories on hanging rods and shelves. You can, of course, mix and match designs and styles and also include a few drawers. This type of storage can be an interesting option for a casual bedroom or for a small room where a regular closet would occupy too much space.
