What Kind Of Wardrobe Does Your Bedroom Need?

Let’s get out of the bed for a minute and take a look at the rest of the bedroom. How about… the wardrobe! Yes – what kind of wardrobe do you need in your bedroom in order to feel as comfortable as possible? Well, the short version is - one that has an interior that best suits your needs and an exterior that best suits your bedroom.

However, for a longer and a bit more detailed answer, we need to ask ourselves a few questions first.

  • How many people are going to use the wardrobe and what kinds of clothes are they going to use it for? If you and your partner are sharing a single wardrobe then, as a minimum, it needs to have one lever for coat hangers, two drawers for underwear each, and two drawers for clothes each. But that’s way too general. If for example, the man wears mostly T-shirts, switchers and sports jeans, he won’t need that many hangers and will require more drawers instead. There are others that like formal wear and will need a ton of hangers. With the ladies, the matters become even more complicated – how many dresses, how many formal clothes, how much underwear.
  • Are you going to keep all your clothes in one place, together with your outside garments and shoes? If you’re going to need one big wardrobe for all your clothes, you’ll need different levels of coat hangers – one for long coats and one for shorter ones. If you’re going to keep your shoes there as well, you’ll need a separate compartment for them. Besides, you probably don’t want your dresses and t-shirts to be in the same place as your shoes, so a hallway wardrobe might be a good idea as well.

  • Speaking of hallway wardrobes – how about handbags and hats? How many do you have, how do you prefer to keep them. With a lady in the house, let alone more than one, some people need an entire wardrobe just for those.

  • And let’s not forget non-clothing items. A hair dryer, epilator, shoe wax, combs, etc. – you’d either keep those in a nightstand or a hallway stand, or in a wardrobe drawer. And let’s not forget a woman’s jewelry, her scarves and all the other small, precious things that need to be put somewhere – a jewelry drawer is quite different than an underwear drawer.
  • Let’s go back to friendly waters now – the bedding! As we’ve mentioned many times, each bed in the house needs at least two or three sets of bedding. And since not all of them are going to be used at the same time, the rest need to be stored somewhere – are you going to us your wardrobe for that, or get a separate dower-chest just for the bedding?

  • How big is the bedroom itself and how big can the wardrobe be? Its shape will also often be determined by the room itself. Like it or not, sometimes we just can’t get a wardrobe that’d best suit our needs, because the bedroom won’t allow it. Multiple additional drawers, nightstands, dower-chests and others can be used then, but all this is best to be thought of beforehand.

  • How about some more specialized items? Some people want a TV set in their bedroom – there are wardrobes with separate compartments for TV screens. It’s unconventional, yes, but it’s something that needs to be considered as well.
