WARDROBES

Choosing a wardrobe that could sync with the decor of your room without compromising all the functional and storage requirements is often a challenging task. Especially when the space is small. The design of a wardrobe should be aligned with the needs of the person living in the room and his storage requirement

Have you considered all these criteria while buying if not then them brief you on each type thoroughly:   

Door Mechanism Of A Wardrobe

Here, hinged doors and sliding doors for wardrobes have been explained while stating the pros and cons

Hinged Door

They can work with wardrobes designed in any shape thus can be fitted anywhere in any manner whatsoever.

Pros:

  • Better visibility of inside provides a wide-open view.
  • More hanging space is available in hinged doors.
  • Can use doors as hanging space for sling bags, scars, belts, etc.
  • It comes in a variety of styles like mirrors, laminated, marble finish and colors including pop and pastel colors.
  • Easy to maintain since hinges can be tightened or lubricated in cases they loosen or are making noise plus can be replaced in case of damages.

Cons:

  • Takes up space as they swing outwards when opened.
  • Hinders the traffic flow in the room to prevent it you must not place anything in front or side of its doors.

Sliding Door

These are movable doors that glide horizontally along the metal channels fixed to the top and bottom of the wardrobe. 

They are considered as a style statement because of their sleek cum contemporary look.

NOTE: If you choose sliding door remember they look best when you have at least three or more doors

Pros:

  • Give a sleek, modern and neat look.
  • Space savers and do not interfere with any functions. 
  • If you want to have a large wardrobe with maximum storage this is the one for you.
  • No need for additional storage.
  • available in a wide range of lengths and sizes

Cons:

  • Restricts to have full view of wardrobe blocking view of half side.
  • Need gentle handling.
NOTE: Rough handling can damage the alignment and can also make the door slip off the track.
  • We need to lubricate the rollers regularly.
  • Ensure the cleaning of tracks from time to time.
  • Expensive 
PRO TIP: Do not overstuff, it may cause the fabric to get stuck between the sliding doors.

Types Of Wardrobes

Cupboards were meant to be small in size used to display crockery but in an Indian home, they might be used to store clothes since they started coming in different styles. 

You can place it in your bedroom, lobby or wherever you need to have extra storage like in the bathroom to store extra towels and other hygiene-related things or in lobby to play extra mats, cutlery and crockery.

The plastic cupboards look great in kid’s room and since they are portable they can be moved whenever and wherever you wish. Mostly the colored ones are cute and kids like to have colorful things around plus it will uplift the style of the room and give more fun kinds of vibes.

Difference Between Wardrobe, Almirah, And Cupboards

Almirah is like a cute teenage girl … only for one … away from the rest of the world …only take care of her boyfriend … so almirah is small and only for one person ….

Cupboard is a model … a stylish girl as well as matured … who looks good with some extra makeup as well as her intention is showing off….. instead of looking cute…that girl looks sexy actually …so cupboard is for decoration

Wardrobe is like a lady who’s butts become extra large which are enough to hang some clothes …as well as who can hang the clothes of more than one person at the same time …
