W ardrobes are a common thing in almost every household these days. The transition of storage from metal almirah to wooden wardrobes has been drastic and extremely diverse. In the last few years, there have been wholesome changes in wardrobe designs. These changes are not just about the aesthetics of the storage units but also inspired by the need for different purposes. In a smaller space designing the wardrobe becomes more important to get the best use of the available space.
Wardrobes with sliding doors are the best options if you have a smaller bedroom. Front open wardrobes will require additional space in front to accommodate the doors to open. However, sliding doors will not require any additional space which may give you a little extra space to build the wardrobe.
If you are not getting a wardrobe with sliding doors for some reason, try to buy one with multiple doors. A wardrobe with multiple compartments separated by different doors will reduce the size of them. A wardrobe with two doors of a given size will have bigger-sized doors compared to a wardrobe with three or four doors of the same size. Other than the door size, separate sections may come in handy in organizing your clothes based on preference or person.
Go the height: Use maximum space
Using most of the available space should be the main aim if you are dealing with limited space. Any space that will not be used for any purpose should not be abandoned, e.g., the headspace of any wardrobe. The upper empty space of your wardrobe can be utilized for storing things that will not be used on a daily basis, like your winter bedding, your luggage carriers, and other occasional things. Creating a loft above your wardrobe will solve the purpose and will also maintain the symmetry of the entire room.
Single door wardrobes: Fill the left-out corner in your living space
Often, we see a corner or a redundant passage on the wall which is mostly not used properly. Having a single-door wardrobe placed in that space could be extremely useful. Not only will it provide an extra room for your belongings, but also take care of the awkward gap in the room.
Add the Mirror
Yes, adding a large-sized mirror on one of your wardrobe doors will make a huge difference as it will serve multiple purposes. The addition will save you from buying an extra piece of furniture as well as the reflection from the mirror (or mirrors if you use all glass finished doors) will make the space appear bigger than its actual size.
