Things to Keep in Mind When Installing a Wardrobe
Always use a design that is suitable to the available space in the room. The furniture should match the interior decoration theme. You have to pay attention to the depth, height, shape, size, materials, colours and finish. The design options include antique, classic, colonial, French, Spanish, minimalist, modern and ultramodern, among others. Each style is different from the others. When it comes to designing the shelves, drawers and boxes, there is no limit on design and combination possibilities. Your wardrobe can be an open or a completely enclosed system. In one design, only a part of the storage system has wardrobe while the other parts are used for drawers, open shelves and TV. All types of designs are possible. Talk to our representative to discuss your ideas. Our designers and project managers are ready to turn your ideas into reality.
Colours and Finishes:
Homeowners generally prefer one plain colour style for their wardrobe. White wardrobe is used widely because it matches well to most interior themes. In case of multiple colours, not more than two-colour combination is used. The colour used for the wardrobe furniture should be complementary to the colour or colours used for walls and ceiling. Bright colours are suitable for kid wardrobe. You can use panels that have wood like surface pattern. Metal doors are generally painted in metallic colours and finish. Glass doors are either clear or translucent but can be painted as well. Depending on your preference, the furniture surface can have semi gloss, high gloss or matte finish.
For wood type furniture, particle board or MDF is preferred but old favourite plywood can also be used. The wardrobe doors can be made in particle board, MDF, metal or glass. Each material has its own advantages. Both particle board and MDF are economical and now preferred over plywood. These products are made with engineered wood and prove durable and strong. The edges retain smoothness for long and do not develop splinters and voids. Any type of paint and finish can be applied on the smooth surface of these materials. Glass sliding wardrobe doors can be painted or left unpainted to retain the original clear or translucent look.
Depth and Size:
A minimum of 18-inch depth is needed in a wardrobe but you can extend it to 24 inches or more. It all depends on how much storage space you need and how much space of the room you are ready to lose. Generally, 18-inch depth is sufficient for common designs of hangers, shelves and drawers. Your wardrobe can cover from wall to wall and floor to ceiling; or it can be constructed smaller to take up only a part of the wall side. Keep in mind that the cost of your wardrobe is related to the inner depth and overall furniture size. With a larger storage system, you have more storage space with multiple shelves and drawers but it will cost more.
Type of Doors:
You can use hinge or sliding doors. Sliding doors wardrobe cost more because additional materials are needed for the sliding feature. If the wardrobe is large and wide, you can use sliding doors to reduce the number of doors needed to cover the front. The number of doors required for a wardrobe depends on how wide your wardrobe is, the number of sections in it, and how much of wardrobe should remain open every time you open it. It starts with two doors and can go up to six or more doors depending on the width of the wardrobe. Each type of door has its pros and cons. Choose a type of door according to your requirements, preferences, type of wardrobe, available space in the room, and budget.
Hardware, Interiors and Accessories:
You can build a simple wardrobe or it can have all the frills. All parts can be constructed using the same material or some parts can be made with other materials. It all depends on what type of features you need in your wardrobe. Additional hardware items are needed if sliding wardrobe doors are used. You can attach mirror to the exterior of the door. The mirror can be only on one door or on each door. Handles for doors and drawers are available in a wide range of designs.
