Types of bedroom cabinet – which bedroom cupboards should you choose?

The bedroom cupboards you choose for your room are very important. Bedroom wardrobes are not only functional, but they also define the style of the room. There are lots of types of bedroom cabinet, from your standard stand-alone wardrobes, to the impressive dressing room. The type you choose will depend on your house, your space, your style and your needs.

The reasons you might want new bedroom cupboards:

  • Replace outdated wardrobes. If you’re looking to refresh your bedroom, adding new wardrobes is one of the best ways to do this. The wardrobes in a room can start to look old and battered after a few years of use, so even if you just replace the doors or handles, it is sure to make a big difference. 
  • Redesigning the bedroom. Wardrobes take up a large portion of the bedroom so it is hard to change bedroom styles, because you’re limited to what matches your cabinets. Replacing your outdated wardrobes gives you the freedom to inject any style preference you like into your bedroom. 
  • Renovations. If you have bought a property that is in need of a renovation, it is the ideal time to consider investing in some high quality bedroom wardrobes. Thinking about your bedroom cupboards at this stage means you aren’t limited to what type of cabinets you have, or where you have them. 
  • New property. Every new property needs bedroom wardrobes to store clothes in. If you are moving from an old property to a new build, its time to consider leaving the old wardrobes behind and investing in new bedroom cabinets for your brand new bedroom.

The types of bedroom cabinet

So, what are the different types of bedroom cabinet? There are lots of different types of bedroom cabinets, no type is the best or worst option, it’s simply a case of preference. Here are your options:

Stand-alone bedroom wardrobes

The most common type of wardrobes are the stand-alone versions. These are additions to your bedroom, though they can blend in with the style of the room. 

Built-in bedroom cupboards

These cupboards blend in seamlessly with your bedroom design instead of standing out and looking like additions to the room. Built-in cupboards make the bedroom look less cluttered and give the illusion of more space, so they work well in small bedrooms as well as bigger ones. 

Walk-in wardrobes

Nothing says luxury like being able to step into your wardrobe to choose your outfit. Walk-in wardrobes offer an abundance of space and can house your entire outfit, from clothes to shoes and even hats, jewellery and other accessories. This makes picking out your clothes much easier and far more enjoyable.

Walk-through wardrobes

Walk-through wardrobes add the wow factor to any room, they’re especially useful for rooms that link together, like a bedroom and an en-suite. Like walk-in wardrobes, walk-through wardrobes offer a lot of storage and a fantastic way to organise your clothes. 

Dressing Room

The ultimate dressing experience comes from having your own private dressing room. Somewhere to store all your clothes and accessories, a place for you to get ready for the day ahead, a room of tranquility. A dressing room is sure to add value to your property and make you enjoy it that little bit more.

Deciding which bedroom cabinet best suits you

  • How much storage do you need? Use the storage you have now as an example, is it enough? Or do you need more?
  • What style are you hoping to achieve in your bedroom?
  • How much space do you have to work with? 
  • What do you need from your wardrobe now and how will those needs change over the coming years?
