05 Sep Wardrobe Storage Solutions – Modern Design Trends
One of the most overlooked features when designing or renovating a house is one of the things that we use everyday – the wardrobe. The ‘out-of-sight, out-of-mind’ mentality keeps the wardrobe from getting any attention and it is the reason why many robes are disorganised. Contemporary design trends, however, have brought the wardrobe back in focus and incorporated it into the overall design of the bedroom and home. As a result, there are a variety of new and trendy wardrobe storage solutions for homeowners to consider.
For classic robe ideas, the doors are the most important aspect because they remain the most visual element of the wardrobe. Those who still wish to have normal doors can increase a room’s elegance by installing large mahogany doors that open up in luxurious corridor wardrobes.
Common designs also feature sliding doors. However, most sliding door designs showcase simple door panels which slide behind another. New trends in sliding doors feature corresponding designs that match the sliding doors to the walls like wooden panels or similar paint design.
Some wardrobe solutions are moving away from the classic features (like doors) and moving towards designs that utilise the space of the room in which the robe resides. A growing trend is the use of drapes to separate the wardrobe storage from the rest of the room. So instead of having specifically designed nooks for the wardrobe, homeowners are installing hooks and shelves for the clothes and then installing rods for the drapes.
Another growing trend is not having any doors at all. Instead of covering up the robe space, homeowners are leaving the space wide open and having the wardrobe area as an extension of the bedroom. In that case, the overall design of the robe is critical since it must correspond with dominant design scheme of the room.
Wardrobes that resemble small boutique shops are also becoming popular. That trend goes more with stylish and colourful wardrobes that illustrate the personality of the homeowner.
Wardrobe storage solutions – Style
It really comes down to a matter of personal style. If the robe is going to hold a prominent presence in the room it occupies, then it needs to reflect the character of the individual while corresponding to the overall design of the room.
