If you have a large collection of clothing and accessories, one piece of furniture that you may wish to add to your home is a clothing wardrobe. The exact design of this type of furniture can vary considerably, but each wardrobe is designed to provide storage space for clothing on hangers. You can add a clothing wardrobe to your bedroom, a wide space in your hallway, or even your bathroom if it's spacious enough. When you shop for this piece of furniture at a local store, you'll want to choose a product that has these features.
While you'll probably be shopping for a clothing wardrobe because you need space for articles of clothing that you'll hang, it's handy if your wardrobe has some additional storage options that you can use. You'll often find wardrobes that have a number of drawers. For example, in some designs, there will be drawers above or below the hanger rod. In other designs, there will be a vertical stack of drawers on one side of the unit. This extra storage space can be handy for clothing that you roll or fold to store, such as undershirts, socks, and more. Alternatively, you can use the drawers for storing clothing accessories.
Some clothing wardrobes have a full-length mirror. It may be on the exterior of the piece of furniture or on the inside of one of the doors. Having this feature is valuable because you'll be able to check how you look after you put a piece of clothing on. If you're planning to set the clothing wardrobe in an area of your home where there isn't a nearby mirror — the hallway, for example — the presence of a mirror will be especially useful. A mirror can also make a room feel more spacious, which can be handy if you're placing the wardrobe in a small room.
While a few drawers can be valuable in a clothing wardrobe, it's also ideal if you choose a unit that has some open shelves. You'll find models with shelves in different locations, and each can provide space for clothing and other items. Bulky items such as sweaters can work well on shelves, as they may simply be too large to fit in the unit's drawers. In some cases, you might wish to place decorative items on one of the shelves to cheer you up when you're getting dressed. Visit a furniture store to browse its clothing wardrobes.
