A wardrobe closet takes the best features of both a closet and a wardrobe and melds them into one conveniently-sized piece of furniture. Though this may seem like a strange concept, more and more people are purchasing them if they do not have large closets, or if they simply need more storage space.
What a wardrobe closet is, aside from a combination of two very popular bedroom storage options, is a large wardrobe with enough compartments and options to fulfill most people’s needs. What this means is that there are usually one or two cabinets and two to four drawers, depending on size. This gives the option to hang clothes up and also keep folded or out of season clothes in the drawers.
This is a great option for those living in apartments with little to no bedroom closet space, as often a wardrobe closet can be found at a relatively affordable price. Many retailers have lower end pine or oak styles for $100 to $200. For the amount of storage that is given with just one piece of this type of furniture, it is somewhat of a steal.
Aside from the less showy and cheaper styles, there are also more decorative and overall more extravagant models available as well. While the cheaper ones are often found at large department stores, the more expensive models are often found at furniture stores or even some home improvement stores. The more expensive models are often at least $400, and provide a little more flair to the equation with etched designs in the corners of the outside of the wardrobe. They are also available in more varieties of wood, including mahogany and cherry. This is a great option for anyone, though it may not be the best for a household on a tight budget.
Looking online may also provide some leads to some good prices on these pieces of furniture, though one should always make sure a vendor is reputable. Many furniture stores also have websites that allow you to have exactly what you want shipped to your local location free of charge. If not going through a furniture store’s website, keep in mind that shipping chargers often apply, and they are also quite high.
There are many different types of furniture that you could choose to add to your bedroom, but not many of them are as useful as a wardrobe closet. Though not a new type of furniture by any means, more and more people are picking them up as a convenient way to store their clothes. With the huge range of prices and styles available, there is almost no reason not to pick one up if you are low on storage in your bedroom or home.
