The Different Styles of Wardrobes You Can Find in Adelaide

Wardrobes come in many different types. There is that cheap canvas wardrobe, then on the other side of the scale is state of the art wardrobes Adelaide from France. They come with almost every kind of internal storage option you can think of.


Do you splash out on a top-quality bespoke wardrobe or splurge on a few outfits to put in it?


Setting aside the aesthetics of bedroom wardrobes, you need to think about how much storage you want, how much room you actually have, and what you want to keep in it.


It is also worth considering to use it for other things, some people like to hide a TV in their bedroom, and a fitted wardrobe can be excellent for this. They can also be used for crafts/sewing storage or even an office. There are several different kinds of wardrobes, let’s look at them one by one.



These are decorative, old-style or antique freestanding wardrobes. They are usually made of wood and can’t be altered.


They have hanging rails and sometimes drawers at the bottom. They usually don’t have shelves – certainly nothing fancy like pull out shoe racks. They are generally no more than 2.2 metres high.


They can look fabulous in a guest room, living room or hallway of an older style or traditionally decorated home. They usually only have two doors.


Ready-Made and Ready-to-Assemble Bedroom Wardrobes

These come from the inexpensive end of the market. Like armoires, they are fixed in height, width & internal fittings. They will have hanging rails, perhaps drawers in the bottom, and possibly some shelves. However, other storage options are not available and can’t be retrofitted in them. They are great for kids rooms, guest bedrooms, and if you need a temporary solution.


Made to Order Fitted Wardrobes

These are next step up. They are made in Italy or Germany. They need to be bought from (and installed by) a specialist retailer who will design the layout especially for you. These will give you choices of different size cabinets.


Different makers will vary in the available sizes, so it might not be possible to get one to fit precisely. They can reach up to 2.9 metres, so if you have high ceilings and want maximum storage, they can be handy.


Internally they have a fantastic array of different storage options which can be positioned anywhere in the cabinets. Doors can be hinged or sliding. You have the choice of fabulous colours and finishes if you want something out of the ordinary. They do differ in quality but range from good to superb in quality. It just depends on where you buy it.


Walk-In Wardrobes

Arguably the gold standard of bedroom wardrobes Adelaide if you have the luxury of a whole room to use these are fabulous. They use similar fittings & storage options as in made-to-order freestanding wardrobes. Panels are fixed to your walls and various shelves, drawers etc. are added. Because everything is open, it is much easier to see your clothing & shoes. However, the disadvantage is that you can’t just throw everything in or use these to hide your junk away, as everything is on display!
