The word wardrobe has come into use from the country of France where it was addressed as "Warderobe". In French, the meaning of warder means "to look after or protect" and robe is a garment.
A bedroom is incomplete without two major components; bed and the wardrobe. You might not struggle much in finding the right style and comfort in a bed but for a wardrobe the road might get a bit tricky. Before choosing the right closet, one has to consider a lot of things in accordance to its style or design.
In today’s scenario, a wardrobe is no longer a part of the wealthy people's world. These are now designed with various types and qualities of materials that allow prices to vary from inexpensive to expensive. Along with providing ample storage and clever organisation, a wardrobe adds to the aesthetic appeal of a dressing area.
One of the main concerns while working out the Furniture Layout of a Home is to identify the type of wardrobe construction that would cater to one’s need. Modular Wardrobe has gained a lot of popularity in today’s décor industry due to its benefits.
A modular wardrobe comes with a huge advantage of being designed precisely according to your needs. You can design and detail the wardrobe based on your requirement. It gives you flexibility as you can add any number of drawers, shelves and accessories and give it the best looking door. One can also re-arrange the shelves and accessories whenever you require a make-over.
Modular Wardrobe can be designed in any given space of any size and any shape; unlike stand-alone wardrobe which can be too big or too small sometimes. It can be designed for a free wall, wall with a loft slab above, wall with a niche, wall with openings, etc. This wardrobe can be designed efficiently with the given constraints and still merge with the design concept of the bedroom, making it a wholesome décor.
One of the disadvantages of a free standing wardrobe is its inability to provide you with a clear view of what is inside it at night or on a cloudy day. But with a modular wardrobe, you can custom-tailor lighting the way you want. Lighting is a part of the design and can be installed inside each drawer, cabinet or shelf and it will work automatically when you open that particular compartment.
Sometimes when you think a freestanding wardrobe is perfect for your room, it turns out just the opposite as its finish and material just does not match the other surfaces present in the room. This problem is quite common among homeowners and they are probably in loss after the purchase. With a modular wardrobe, you can choose your type of material and your style of finish and create an awesome looking piece that will complement rest of the furniture and furnishings.
