Wardrobe Closets: Wardrobes and Armoires

Wardrobe closets can provide a homeowner with needed additional storage space. Sometimes, when more than one child shares a bedroom, the bedroom closet can get rather crowded. When that happens, a parent might want to purchase a bedroom wardrobe.

The original wardrobe closet was a freestanding closet, one in which the resident of a home could hang his or her clothes. While not as popular as they used be, wardrobe closets continue to serve an important purpose. They help to reduce the number of stored clothes that acquire wrinkles, and thus need ironing.

Finding Wardrobes for Sale

A wardrobe might be displayed or listed online under a different name. It might be called an armoire. There are many different kinds of armoires. A jewelry armoire is designed to hold jewelry. A long, vertical jewelry “cabinet” can serve as an excellent place for storing necklaces. They hang on hooks in such an armoire.

Parents who want to provide a child with new drawer space might want to consider buying a combination of wardrobe closet and drawers. Some combination units have drawers that extend horizontally from a point adjacent to an armoire. Other combination units have drawers that run vertically next to the designated wardrobe space.

Because there are so many different kinds of movable closets, parents could find that a son or daughter requests more than just a single wardrobe. That child or teen could want both a closet wardrobe and a media armoire. Brand names, such as Pottery Barn, offers a craftsman inspired armoire that is designed to hold a television.

This armoire has both a wrapping frame and paneled bi-fold doors. The birch doors open to reveal a cabinet into which a 60 inch wide TV would fit perfectly. This armoire comes with a dovetailed DVD drawer, a drawer that has a functioning lock. The entire armoire has a distressed espresso finish. Minus the surcharge, this particular storage unit costs $1,999.

Like many armoires, this Pottery Barn furniture piece has tapered feet. This armoire’s mahogany veneer, combined with its bronze finished knobs and their decorative back plates underline the beauty of its presence within a sleeping or living quarters. This particular media armoire can serve as a stylish addition to any room.

No longer do young people view a movable closet as an “outdated” piece of furniture. They realize that an armoire can maintain the quality and appearance of fashionable clothes, and help to protect some modern day entertainment equipment as well.

Other types of wardrobes include more custom designs.  Some pre-manufactured corner wardrobes are a great solution to smaller spaces or more oddly laid out rooms.  These custom styles will command a higher price, but you’re paying for original craftsmanship.  For people looking to add that bit of elegance or class to their bedroom suite, then an antique wardrobe may be the way to go.  Because of their fabulous craftsmanship and detail, these fine pieces of woodworking art are becoming more and more popular.  There are a variety of wardrobes for sale.  Antique and custom wardrobes can range anywhere from $1,500 – 4,500 USD depending on the details and who made it.  Some models have key locking mechanisms that allow them to be kept more private, away from prying eyes.  Even some of these older wardrobes have mirrors on the front of the doors.  These old wardrobe closets can be quite the handy and beautiful pieces to add to your collection.
