Free-standing wardrobes are the most common and easiest to find. These are simply free-standing units that can be purchased and placed in the bedroom. The main advantages of these (other than being affordable and easy to find) are that they can easily be moved around, which is helpful if you plan on moving or like to move your furniture around. Additionally, they can come in all shapes, sizes and finishes. The main drawback is that they can take up a lot of room in the bedroom, which can be an issue if you do not have much space to work with.


Fitted wardrobes are those that are built to follow the structure of the house, which can be helpful if you have an awkwardly shaped room. Fitted wardrobes can be a great solution for many people because they are space-saving compared to free-standing wardrobes, plus they also make the room look neat and professionally designed. The main drawback is that they are built for a particular area, so they cannot be moved around easily.


Those with plenty of space might want to consider a walk-in wardrobe, which can certainly bring glamour to your life. You often see these on TV in films and shows like Devil Wears Prada, Sex in the City and Clueless and the fact that is an extra space in your home means that it is completely customizable. The benefits are obvious, but the drawbacks are that you need a lot of space in the home.

Making a Decision

These are the main options when it comes to wardrobes for your bedroom. The key is to think about the space that you have to work with, if you have plans on moving anytime soon and how much clothing you have/how important clothing is to you. Choosing a wardrobe is a big decision that will impact not just your bedroom but your life, so you need to take your time and explore your options.

This article should help you to make a decision when it comes to choosing a wardrobe. Most people simply go with a free-standing wardrobe, which can be a good option that has benefits, but you do need to know about alternatives and think about what would be best for your bedroom.
