How To Choose The Right Wardrobe For Your Space

There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing a wardrobe for your space. Aside from ensuring that the wardrobe you choose fits your space, you’ll need to consider other factors like budget, style, and your storage needs.  Let’s go over some of the key factors you’ll need to consider when choosing the right wardrobe for your space.

Measure Your Space

To help you visualize how the wardrobe will fit in your space, make a floor plan of the room, and include the exact location of windows, other fixtures, and power outlets. Take accurate measurements of the area where you plan to place the wardrobe. Don’t just measure the floor area, you’ll need to include the ceiling height as well. This will give you a clearer picture on the right size of wardrobe for your space.

Naturally, houses with bigger room spaces can accommodate bigger wardrobes, but this won’t work for smaller rented spaces. If you’re a renter or someone who frequently moves, consider using a clothing rack as an open wardrobe. It’s affordable, easy to assemble, and sturdy enough to organize your clothes.

Consider The Size of the Wardrobe

Now that you’ve measured the area for the wardrobe, the next question would be how big should the wardrobe be? This depends on a lot of factors. You’ll need to consider the amount of clothes you have and if you’re planning to store more than just clothes in it. You’ll want to choose a wardrobe that can accommodate your specific storage needs.

What Are Your Storage Needs

Think about what items you’re planning on storing inside the wardrobe and how you would like them to be organized. There are a variety of storage options available in wardrobes including hanging rods, shelves, drawers, and even shoe racks. Do you plan on just storing clothes in the wardrobe? You’ll probably need a lot of hanging space for that. However, if you’re planning on storing other accessories and shoes as well, you might need one with more shelves and drawers.

When choosing your wardrobes design, consider your rooms overall aesthetic. Ornate wardrobes work well for traditional, classic spaces. However, if your space has a modern, minimalistic vibe, you might want to go for sleek, contemporary wardrobes.

Wardrobes are made with different materials and come in a variety of styles. Aside from using it as storage for your clothes, you can use it to add a touch of style to your room. A great example is a wall mounted clothes rack made with pipes. It gives off an industrial chic vibe while making the room airier with an open closet design.

Set a Budget

Wardrobes can greatly vary in price depending on materials, features, and design. It’s important to set a realistic budget and to do your research before shopping for one. You’ll need to decide how much you’re willing to spend and look for wardrobes that fall within that budget. Keep in mind that cheaper doesn’t always mean a better purchase. Cheap wardrobes made from cheap materials will end up costing you more in the long run once it breaks down. Consider spending a bit more on a wardrobe that has better build quality – it will be a worthwhile investment in the long run.

Choosing the right wardrobe for your space can be a daunting task. However, if you consider your space, your storage needs, style, and budget, you can make an informed decision that will work well for you. With a little bit of research and planning, you can find the perfect wardrobe for your space with a price tag that fits your budget.
