Wardrobes are not only a space where stuff is stored, but have now come to become the central design element in many homes. Decorators are now stressing on the aesthetic possibilities of the wardrobe. There is a lot of impact that a wardrobe style has on the home décor and vice versa. Here are some pointers that will help you understand the concept better.

Space Saving Options

The primary benefit that wardrobes bring into the home is the option of choosing to save a lot of space. For example, if you have a small house with a restricted floor area you can utilize the vertical space in your home, by choosing to install a floor to ceiling wardrobe. A lot of stuff apart from just clothes and shoes can be stored in wardrobes and it is an effective option for decluttering your home. Nothing beats the concept of a wardrobe as a space saver.

Sliding vs Open wardrobes

Wardrobs generally have two major ways of functioning. Either the door can be slid open to reveal the inner space or the door swings forward to reveal inner space. In either case, the design of the cupboard will affect the other furniture placement. If the door of the wardrobe swings open then you can only place your bed, couch and other furniture pieces at a certain distance as you have to make space to approach the wardrobe. If the size of your room is really small then a wardrobe with a sliding door is much more preferable, than a wardrobe with an opening door.

Wardrobes with Mirror Surfaces

A wardrobe with a mirror surface takes up many of the functions of a dresser table. Such wardrobes can magnify the floor area of the room, making it seem larger and more spacious. A small bedroom or a living space can be made to seem larger, just by the addition of a wardrobe mirror. The design and size of the mirror, will be dependent on the size and orientation of the wardrobe.

Designer Wardrobes

In the world of interior décor, wardrobes play a central role as they can project important visual elements. In a Victorian themed home, a mahogany wardrobe with antique curved handles would fit in beautifully. In a futuristic home, a steel gray monochrome wardrobe will add a touch of class. Similarly, wardrobes are now not only built to complement the décor style of the home, but they are now the major focus of the décor. Many more elements, textures and patterns are now used by designers to represent exclusivity in wardrobes.

Walk-In Wardrobes

Walk-in wardrobes are almost like small rooms, in which all elements of the sartorial collection can be stored in an effective and aesthetic way. These wardrobes represent the allocation of a separate space in the house and so can only be incorporated in larger homes. Often, such walk-in wardrobes have multifunctional lights, dresser and various other designer elements.
