Wardrobe Closets Buying Guide: What You Need To Know


Are you in the market for a wardrobe close? If so, you have certainly come to find there’s many different types out there. Is there something specific that makes one model better than another? The answer to this question depends on the budget and the needs of the buyer. In this article, we will address reasons for getting a wardrobe closet, the common features and functions of different models, and how much you can expect to pay for such items.

Why use a wardrobe closet anyway if you already have a closet? Perhaps the main closet has run out of room. This is a common reason. You might want one just to keep your items separate from your partners items, giving one person the entire closet to themselves. They also make an excellent addition to any guest rooms that don’t have a closet. Beyond this, they also just look great – and that’s enough for some people to want one in their room!

Most wardrobe closets follow the standard design of 2 to 3 vertical doors on top and then 2 or 3 horizontal drawers at the bottom. The top doors open up into a closet-like space, with a closet rod built in for clothes on hangers. Some units also feature an upper adjustable shelf in this space. The bottom drawers are not included in all models, and can range from 1 to 3 drawers, allowing for more or less room in the door space above. One excellent feature on higher end models is the placement of a mirror inside the top drawers.

One thing to note here is the question of assembly required versus buying a unit already assembled. Virtually all units purchased on line are going to ship in pieces, with the buyer expected to assemble all parts correctly. This can be quite a task. Note that some stores will come into your home and assemble for you, for an extra fee of course. An excellent trick for buying a wardrobe closet that’s already assembled is to take a look at your local classifieds and see if there’s any for sale that someone bought, assembled, and then decided not to use. (Not to mention this is also a great way to save a whole lot of money too!)

Before you pay any assembly fee though, let’s look at the cost involved just to buy the unit. At the lowest end of the scale you’re looking at right under $200. It is possibly to get a very good unit in the beginning price range between $200 and $500. Now onto the higher end of the scale, wardrobe closets can become very expensive, costing $2,00o or $3,000 or more.

If you need more space for your stuff, wardrobe closets will do the job. They look great and offer ample space for clothes and even things like towels, sheets, and blankets. Because of the solid design and excellent finishes offered, a wardrobe closet will brighten any room you want to use one in!
