The right balance between functionality and style when it comes to wardrobes is a little tricky. If you’re looking to furnish your space or transform your space, the wardrobe is possibly the most essential piece of furniture.
Not sure how to select the perfect wardrobe? These 6 hacks will save your life.
How big is your bedroom? A small bedroom can look overcrowded if you try and fit a big sized wardrobe and eat up precious space. If you have a bigger space, any size wardrobe will look fine.
Assess your needs
If you’re a fashionista, a single wardrobe might not do the trick. You need to opt for a bigger wardrobe to accommodate all your clothes. Buying a decent sized wardrobe may not be possible but if you’re a Mumbaikar, just rent a wardrobe in Mumbai instead. Not only will you have plenty of options, you can upgrade or downgrade whenever you want.
Finish and quality
Are you a home decor fiend? Then you must be obsessed with the finish and the quality of the wardrobe. You don’t want the wardrobe to have a cheap-looking finish when everything else in the room is real wood. Make sure it matches the rest of the furniture in your bedroom to avoid having it stick out like a sore thumb. For instance, if you’re a Bangalorean and the room you’re in has darker accents, a light coloured wardrobe can add a pop of colour and brighten up the space. Remember this sage advice when you’re looking for a wardrobe on rent in Bangalore.
If you are prone to rearranging your room every time you catch an episode of Queer Eye or Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, make sure the wardrobe you get isn’t solid wood. You want to have a lighter material like aluminum or plywood. If you’re looking for something a tad more portable, you might want to consider a cloth wardrobe that zips up.
A big sized wardrobe can look spacious but lack appropriate storage. Let’s assume you need a separate sock, underwear and towel drawer but your fabuluous wardrobe only has 2, then it’s probably not the right wardrobe for you. If you like to stay organized, a wardrobe with more drawers and dedicated space is much better than a roomy wardrobe that you can only use to hang clothes. You should look at the depth of the wardrobe when choosing one. A shallow wardrobe might not be able to hold your items neatly and you may have to fold clothes and other items more than once to ensure it fits.
Do you need a walk-in closet or will a single door wardrobe do? A small wardrobe or a floor to ceiling wardrobe? The style of the wardrobe is pretty much determined by your needs, taste in home decor and the space and budget you have.
A walk-in closet is the ultimate dream! But, while you’re living young and wild, a walk-in closet may be the last thing on your priority. That doesn’t mean you have to settle. You can still get the wardrobe you desire as long as you decide to rent it.
It’s cheaper. It’s faster and you can always switch it up when you get bored of it or need more space.
