Wardrobes are a one time investment for most homeowners. Given the fact that most Singaporeans prefer installing wardrobes in their bedrooms, it is important to define the wardrobe design beforehand. That shouldn’t  be done without researching all the available options. This guide will help you define your wardrobe needs by giving you a range of design options to choose from.

The most important aspect of your wardrobe should be the durability it offers to you. Yes, we want a good looking wardrobe but one that is durable too. Here are some of the important qualities every wardrobe should have. Make a list!

Essentials Bedroom Wardrobe Quality Checklist:

The carcass of wardrobes are usually made with plywood or MDF

Quality of material:

The most popular materials used for the bedroom wardrobes are plywood, MDF, particle board, glass and wood. All of these  are versatile options and are easy to maintain.


Drawers are classified  as accessories  for bedroom wardrobe designs but every designer will confirm that they’re necessities. Pull out Drawers are ideal in your wardrobe to store small items such as undergarments, ties or even makeup. 

Hanger rods:

Yet another accessory but a lifesaver when it comes to bedroom wardrobe designs. A  hanger rod is your Monday morning friend that can help to  save you from a crumpled up shirt massacre. 

Ample storage:

The key to having ample storage is having an estimate of your storage needs. However,  it is also always better to leave some extra space. 

 The more the accessories, the more the cost of customisation of the wardrobe

Types of Bedroom Wardrobe Designs Based on Choice:

Based on choice, there are two types of wardrobe designs to choose from:

#1: Choose Free-standing Wardrobes for Flexibility:

Move anytime with your freestanding wardrobe

Freestanding bedroom wardrobe designs are ideal for renters or people who move constantly. They are available in a range of sizes, materials and cost. If measured carefully, they can be tucked well in a niche. They also come with fitted accessories such as drawers and rods. 

#2: Custom-make Your Bedroom Wardrobe

Customise your wardrobe to suit your storage needs

Customised bedroom wardrobe designs are usually encouraged by designers as they can be made to fit the demand of the homeowner. It is a one-time investment and cannot be moved. However, the customer has a complete say in its construction and these wardrobes have  a record for being more effective in terms of both form and functionality.

Glass wardrobe doors are a good way to give your wardrobe an open look. They also stop dust from settling down on your things. They’re more suited to people who are neat and organised since everything will be on display.
