Well-decorated wardrobes have the potential to become the focal point of attraction in a bedroom, be it the kid’s room, master bedroom or your own private one. It is also a static fixture as compared to the other pieces of furniture and decor in the space which can be replaced/changed once you feel bored with their looks. Finally, wardrobes can also increase the resale value of your property once you have decided to shift out, owing to the amount of storage space that’s available. The more it is, the merrier it is for potential home buyers!

How Do You Go About Designing Your Dream Bedroom Wardrobe?

Designing a bedroom wardrobe is not as easy as it sounds, though it can be taken up as a wardrobe decoration DIY project as well. You need to consider a number of factors before taking the final step. To spare you the hassle, we’ve prepared a quick checklist for you to read and keep handy so that you choose the right wardrobe for yourself.

  • Type of wardrobe: Built-in wardrobe (fixed feature) or a free-standing wardrobe (movable feature) that does not block any source of light in the bedroom
  • Size of wardrobe: The size of the wardrobe depends upon the amount of storage space you want for your clothes and accessories and the way you want to keep them. Different stuff in your bedroom wardrobe requires different heights to be neatly accommodated, so check the amount of floor space and wall space available. For starters, the ideal wardrobe height for children can be 15 inches while it can be 45 inches for an adult. Check out more wardrobe interior design ideas here
  • Style of the wardrobe and wardrobe door: The style and colour of the bedroom wardrobe should complement the interiors of the bedroom and other pieces of decor. It shouldn’t dull down the overall vibe of the room. If you’re looking for modern wardrobe decoration, you can also experiment with sliding doors instead of swing or hinge ones as they’re quite a trend these days. Here too, you will need to measure the space around the wardrobe to ensure that there’s enough for free movement around the room. Skim through more wardrobe door design ideas here.
