Wardrobes are a staple piece of bedroom furniture and because they're often the second biggest item after the bed, they play a big role in the style of a room. To cater for all different tastes, the variety of wardrobes available today is breathtaking. You can get oak wardrobes, sliding wardrobes, built in wardrobes, cheap wardrobes, expensive wardrobes, flat-pack wardrobes or top quality, fully-assembled oak wardrobes.
Where would we be without wardrobes? Well, for starters the bedroom would probably remain in the perpetual clothes-strewn-across-the-floor state of our teenage years. Without wardrobes or place to hang our clothes, we'd be constantly glued to the ironing board, trying to get the creases out every morning or brushing off stray hairs picked up from the carpet.
Before you begin ploughing through the numerous wardrobes available, there are a few things you need to consider. It might not seem immediately important, but you need to decide on how you want your wardrobe doors to open. Do you want hinged wardrobe doors or sliding wardrobe doors?
The traditional hinged wardrobe door will complement a variety of interiors and are available in a number of design options. There are many types of finishes available - if you opt for oak wardrobes or more unusual mango wood wardrobes, you can choose between a rustic finish or sleek, modern finish. An advantage of hinged wardrobe doors is that you can view your entire clothing selection at one time - and you can take the wardrobe with you if you move house!
The main disadvantage of sliding wardrobe doors is that they only really suit ultra modern décors and it's hard to give them a more traditional look. You can only view one half of your clothing selection at a time and poorly made sliding wardrobe doors mean you'll forever be battling to keep them on the tracks. Of course this isn't an issue if you invest in quality sliding wardrobe doors, but there are still more things to consider - what happens if you move home? Often, sliding wardrobe doors are made to fit, so it wouldn't be very practical to dismantle them and take them with you.
There are many wardrobes out there, made from many different types of material. But which is best? Well if you don't want to have to buy another one in a few year's time, the best option is solid hardwood. Hardwoods such as oak, mango and mahogany are renowned for their exceptional strength and durability. Oak wardrobes will last much longer than cheap MDF flat-pack wardrobes, and what's more - you get an absolutely gorgeous piece of furniture to boot!
Wardrobes are equipped with masses of hanging space, and more often than not they even have drawer space for heavier items and shoes. If you're planning on sharing the wardrobe, it's worth taking a look at a triple wardrobe (a three door wardrobe).
For example, our Rustic Solid Oak Triple Wardrobe offers absolutely heaps of hanging space with three large doors. But if that's not enough, there's two generously-sized drawers at the base of the wardrobe; both made using resilient dovetail joints.
But you don't have to opt for a big wardrobe. All our wardrobes offer plenty of hanging space and every single one comes with drawers. If you're looking for oak wardrobes, mango wood wardrobes or even mahogany wardrobes, you've certainly come to the right place!
For safe delivery to your room of choice, all our wardrobes come in component form. This means that the base section (the drawers) will be delivered within the main body of the wardrobe to ensure it fits up stairs easily. You won't require any tools to assemble the wardrobe and don't forget that we offer an absolutely free delivery option!
