4 Things to Consider When Buying a Wardrobe


  1. Finding the right spot:

The location of your wardrobe plays a crucial factor. Consider these: 

  • Will you be using the wardrobe as a divider to partition a room? 
  • Will you be placing it in a corner? 

Answering these can assist you. 

It is important to remember that a wardrobe can take up quite a bit of space in the room, so you want to avoid it blocking the natural light and access to windows or door openings.

2. Measurements:

Once you have allocated a floor space for the wardrobe, it is time to measure the area. Measure all dimensions, such as the height, width and depth, to ensure the wardrobe will fit correctly.

Remember to take note of the structural features of the room when measuring, such as slanted ceilings and other room obstructions.

3. Your storage needs:

The size of the wardrobe for the room would vary depending on your needs.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Who will be using the wardrobe? 
  • What type of garments will you store in your wardrobe? 
  • Do you need something that has more shelves to store away folded T-shirts? 
  • Do you require one that has a lot of hanging room for your trousers and long dresses?
  • How much of clothes do I need to store?

4. Style:

Wardrobes are available in many styles, colours and materials. The styles can range from traditional to modern and contemporary. You can also match your wardrobe with the other furnishings and room décor or create a personalised style by mixing and matching. To avoid making the room look too cluttered, use the same type of material or colour to create a cohesive look.
