It doesn’t matter what the size of your bedroom is, the two essentials you will need are a bed and some storage. However, wardrobe design can be a difficult, detailed task because unlike the bed, once fixed, it cannot be shifted or changed as easily.

So, while investing in room storage, you not only have to check the wardrobe size but also the design of wardrobe. At Livspace, we have a certain expertise when it comes to bedroom wardrobe interior design, not only in terms of style but durability as well, which is just as important to us. Our products go through multiple rounds of quality checks so that every aspect of the wardrobe, including the wardrobe door design and the wardrobe internal design, can stand the test of time. In this ‘know your wardrobe design inside out’ guide, we will help you achieve the perfect design that fulfils its functionality and the room aesthetics.

Wardrobe Dimensions, Placement and Spatial Analysis

Firstly, you’ll need to assess the space to find out the wardrobe size. This will also determine the wardrobe door design in terms of the number of doors and whether they will be sliding or hinged. For example, a two-door swing wardrobe will need a minimum wall length of 800 mm or 2 to 3 ft. But if you want two sliding doors, your room plan should be able to spare a minimum of 6 ft.

However, if the room is compact, it would be ideal to choose a sliding wardrobe design with mirror. This is because the swing doors need clearance space to open as they are hinged — 300 mm — making sliding-door wardrobe more space-efficient. Having a mirror on the wardrobe further helps make the room seem bigger than it is.

As for the depth of wardrobe, the standard 1.5 ft. is enough if you fold your clothes. But if you have coats and blazers or heavy dresses and saris to hang, then it is better to build 2 ft. deep frames.

What Is the Ideal Height of Wardrobe

Typically, the height of wardrobe varies between 7 to 8 ft. Anything lower than this can affect its ergonomic design and storage capacity.

Livspace is known to play with standard wardrobe dimensions and engage the room elements in wardrobe to render unique aesthetics for its customers.

Also, if you require more storage, then opt for lofts. This will add to the wardrobe dimensions and consequently cost a little extra. But try to avoid sliding wardrobe designs with loft as the runners on top of such a wardrobe need special reinforcement to bear the additional top weight.

It is necessary you understand all the types of wardrobe design that will suit the layout of your room before you make a decision.

What Materials Can You Use in Wardrobe Design

A wardrobe mainly consists of two parts — the carcass (the body frame) and the shutter. For the carcass, you have the options of MDF and plywood, whereas the shutters are made of MDF at Livspace.

We recommend MDF for the carcass not just because it’s cost-effective but because plywood tends to cave after a certain time.

Interior Design Wardrobe Finishes

You can choose between finishes like laminate, membrane, UV, acrylic, aluminium with glass, lacquer or mirror. Laminate and membrane are cost-effective and easy to maintain, as opposed to the other finishes.

Currently, many homeowners are opting for mirrored finishes for their wardrobes as it can assist in quick dressing. While studs are used to attach the mirrors to the swing door, aluminium frames are used for the sliding wardrobes.
