Different types of Wardrobes

Considering its frequent usage and the load it bears, you should always ensure that the design of your wardrobe is befitting your needs and requirements. In case, if you are clueless about what types of wardrobe designs exist read this blog for all your queries:

Hinged door Wardrobe

In this type of wardrobe, the door is fixed on to the wardrobe carcass with simple hinges. These doors can be affixed with hidden hinges, and the handles for opening and closing the doors can be customized or eliminated entirely; some doors feature hand slots rather than knobs, thereby providing a smoother, cleaner aesthetic in the room itself.

Pros- Hinged wardrobes are easy to install, easy to move around and also cheaper when compared to sliding ones. They can also easily fit into an L-shaped corner or asymmetric spaces

Cons- These wardrobes may look ordinary and need more clearance space to open and close.

Sliding Door

Sliding door wardrobes offer a sleek, space-saving storage solution in contemporary homes. They have several advantages and can work well in a room of any shape and size. Sliding doors require a floor track as well as a top track with rollers for the doors to slide on. Note the minimum width of a sliding-door wardrobe should be at least 7 feet. This allows for two 3.5-foot doors and an opening that is 3.5 feet wide at most. Any less, and it will be too narrow, making it difficult to get at the contents of the wardrobe.

Pros- Sliding wardrobes are space-saving, look classy and elegant and needless clearance space when compared with hinged ones.

Cons- These wardrobes may not fit into asymmetrical rooms, and are comparatively expensive (2-3 times as much as a hinged wardrobe of a similar proportion). The sliding channels can sometimes not last very long if they are not sturdy.

Walk-In Closet

A walk-in closet or walk-in wardrobe or dressing room is typically a large closet, wardrobe or room that is primarily intended for storing clothes, footwear etc., and being used as a changing room. Walk-in closets are increasingly being preferred for larger apartments and homes. They help to keep the dressing area separate from the main bedroom, provide more storage and are either closed off by a modular sliding partition or lined with wood to give the feel of a traditional wardrobe. The room should also have good lighting, and a bench or chair can be handy. A dressing table is sometimes also found in the walk-in closet, and such dual use can relieve congestion around other rooms such as bathrooms.

Pros- Walk-in wardrobes are classy, afford privacy and prevent spillage of clothing into the main bedroom.

Cons- These wardrobes are quite expensive to build, and need additional space in the bedroom for storage
