Wardobe Buying Guide

Posted by formed on 6 December 2019


There are so many options when it comes to picking a wardrobe, it can be a bit of a conundrum. Should you prioritise style or practicality? Traditional or modern? And where on Earth are you going to store all of those shoes?

The wardrobe is the most important piece of furniture after the bed, and is one of the most visually prominent elements of the room, so it’s important to make the right decision. Luckily, Robes N Rails are on hand to help – read on for a whistle-stop tour of the different variants of fitted wardrobes and how to choose the one that’s best for you.

The ultimate space-saving storage hack, built-in wardrobes are a great way of giving you more room for your belongings without compromising on style. They are tailored to fit your bedroom specifically, so you can rest assured that you’re getting the perfect match for your bedroom that will complement and make the most of your space. Plus, you’ll never have to clean dust from above or underneath it! So what kinds of fitted wardrobes are available?


Sliding door wardrobes

Having a sliding door is really useful for wardrobes in slightly smaller bedrooms, as you will no longer need to leave room to be able to open it like you would with hinged doors. Sliding doors are a more modern feature and therefore tend to lend themselves well to contemporary interiors, but with that being said they can be personalised to suit any room with a range of materials, finishes and accents.


Corner wardrobes

If you have an awkwardly shaped room or a small corner that isn’t serving any purpose, a corner wardrobe may be the solution. Smaller bedrooms can really benefit from the extra depth offered by corner wardrobes. They can maximise and make the most of any available space, avoiding the conundrum of having an unused gap in between two separate pieces of furniture. It’s not just about functionality, though – you can still choose from a range of materials, styles and finishes for a truly bespoke piece of furniture.


Other considerations

  • Mirrored wardrobes – this is an option that can be incorporated into most wardrobe designs. As well as being handy for checking your outfit before you leave the house, mirrors can create the illusion of a far bigger room. You can also guarantee that a mirrored wardrobe will match your decor, as it simply reflects what is already there!
  • Wardrobe doors – maybe you don’t have the budget or time to spend on buying an entire new wardrobe. No problem – if you prefer, you can simply opt to get new doors, which can be just as effective in terms of revamping your space and create a whole new look.
