How to choose the perfect wardrobe for your bedroom

The bed and the wardrobe are the most important elements in a modern bedroom. Make sure you find the perfect wardrobe with these handy tips. 

Type of Wardrobe

Perhaps the first consideration when buying a wardrobe is the type you are looking for. Is a built-in wardrobe or something freestanding what you are looking for?

A built-in wardrobe is an investment piece, and, if you have limited space, is a great way of maximising space with ingenious storage solutions. However, they aren't for everyone. If you are looking for something a little more charismatic, a reclaimed wood freestanding wardrobe may be more along the right lines. 


Space is clearly a major factor when it comes to purchasing large pieces of furniture. With a wardrobe, make sure you think about the height of the wardrobe to ensure that it doesn't look too big for your bedroom, or make your room too dark. 

Also, make sure you consider the floor space your wardrobe will take up. Ensure that you leave enough space to comfortably move around your bedroom with your existing furniture. If you are unsure, lay newspaper down on the floor to map out how much space your new wardrobe will take up. 

Wardrobe Style and Storage Considerations

If you have a contemporary Nordic bedroom, something like our Hudson Living Wycombe Large Oak Wardrobe is perfect. The rounded edges create a soft finish and with the combination of drawer and cupboard storage, there is plenty of space for storage.

If you need something a little smaller, the Hudson Living Kielder Oak Wardrobe is the perfect compact wardrobe. With the clean lines and soft colour of the oak, it will ensure your space looks neat and will keep it beautifully bright. 

If you have a larger bedroom, a reclaimed wooden wardrobe is perfect for adding charm and charisma. The luxurious Bremnes 4 Door Wooden Wardrobe is great for tucking all your clothes away in style. A similar wardrobe is available with a mirror built in if you find yourself struggling for wall space.
