The funny thing about wardrobes is that it is probably your most understated piece of furniture and yet one of the most vital. You don’t show it off to guests or place it prominently to be seen but unless you have sufficient storage options for your clothes, your house is always going to look messy and disorganised. Not to mention troubles caused by not being able to find what you are looking for, where you are supposed to find it! The good news is there are so many different types of wooden wardrobe that you shouldn’t have any trouble finding the one that answers all your woes. So here is a handy guide to everything you should know about wardrobes to help you choose the best one for your needs.
Types of Wardrobe Design
Did you know that the word ‘wardrobe’ was used in Medieval England to mean ‘lavatory?’ Over the centuries, of course, the usage of the word changed to mean what we understand by the term today – a storage cupboard, largely meant for clothes and sometimes featuring accessories like mirrors and drawers. By the 17th century, wardrobes started featuring separate compartments, one for clothes to be flatly stacked and another for clothes to be hung. This is the standard feature we see in wardrobes even today. From the very ornate wardrobes of olden times to the sleek ‘closets’ of today, wardrobes have changed a lot in form, though not in function.
With wardrobes finding a place in interior design plans, they are now part and parcel of the bedroom plan, sometimes disguised into the panelling. But we have so many types of wardrobes in India that most house owners still love to possess a traditional Indian cupboard in their homes. With designs like the ones you see on Woodsala, it is easy to make them part of your interior design plans. You would not only be possessing a part of Indian furniture heritage; you would also be providing your home with ample storage options. The great thing about standalone cupboards is that they are beautiful to look at, are available in various sizes and with various features and can be moved from one room to another as per your changing requirements. If you are still in doubt, check out these amazing types of wardrobe styles:
