What You Need To Know Before Purchasing A Wardrobe?

Besides the bed, a wardrobe is another significant piece of furniture any bedroom can ever have. That alone justifies why you should set aside time to find a wardrobe that fits your bedroom well and satisfies your needs.

Today, there’s a wide range of wardrobe options available from different brands to suit our different needs and preferences.

The Dunelm store has a nice selection of wardrobes available:

Now, before you make your purchase, here are three important things you have to bear in mind.

  1. What Do You Need To Store?

What you intend to keep in the wardrobe will guide you in deciding which wardrobe is right for you. Think of the multiple drawers, stacks of shelves, and hanging rails, do you require all of that? Remember to take your number of clothing into consideration as well. With options such as full-length hanging space, half-height rails, adjustable shelves, make sure you go for an option that perfectly meets your needs.

  1. Space & Room Details

This may sound obvious to many, but not paying attention to space and room details might lead to you making regrettable mistakes. For example, it’s not a good idea to buy a wardrobe that is just small enough to fit in your bedroom, unless you have few clothing items to keep.

Naturally, it would be best to get yourself a wardrobe that is proportional to the size of your room, especially if you have plenty of the items to store in your wardrobe. That includes bed linens, towels, duvets, and the like, in addition to the clothing items.

Room details like ceiling height, floor level, width, and depth will also guide you in knowing which wardrobe size and shape will fit well into the available space.

  1. Design options

Wardrobes come in different designs, each made to fit specific circumstances. For instance, you have to decide between fitted wardrobes and freestanding wardrobes. This will, of course, depend on a number of factors like your space and storage requirements, future plans (such as moving houses) and so on.

As for the door types, we have sliding doors, hinged doors, bi-fold etc. Sliding doors, for instance, are ideal for small spaces.

Other design aspects you will have to consider include color and material. Let the design and look of your room guide you in deciding which color and material will complement it best and enhance its appearance.


Once you’ve made a decision on which wardrobe is perfect for you and your room, the next important thing will be the assembly and installation. Usually, there’s a lot that is involved in these two processes and as much as you can carry out the tasks on your own, you can save time, energy, and unnecessary stress by leaving the work to a professional.
