Wardrobes are a part of every bedroom. As a result, we look at them as functional rather than decorative, but a beautiful wardrobe design can transform the appearance of a bedroom, elevating it from ordinary to exceptional. How does one identify the right design for the bedroom? What colours or materials are ideal for bedroom wardrobes? We present images of 25 stunning wardrobes to provide inspiration for adding a stylish element to a bedroom.
Besides decorating the walls with beautiful wall paper or art, the doors of the bedroom wardrobe can present an additional surface for decorating the room. An image or motif that blends with the rest of the décor is ideal.
If one likes the idea of a walk-in closet, but the room is not large enough for it, an option with see-through doors is one of the modern wardrobe designs that one can use for the bedroom. Keeping the frame of the closet in the same shade brings a cohesiveness to the design, while the lighter wood for the shelves and drawers provides a nice contrast.
One can get a simple wardrobe built by a professional carpenter.

Another alternative is to have a pretty print on the doors of the wardrobe. We recommend mixing it up with a few doors in a solid colour so that the print doesn’t overpower the room.
When the room is large enough for a wall to wall wardrobe, installing a closet with dual-toned wood elements that contrast the lighter shades throughout the rest of the room can bring sophistication to the bedroom.
Building a wardrobe that covers the entire vertical length of the wall is a functional idea as one won’t run out of storage space. However, in this design, a darker closet can make the room look crammed, whereas a lighter shade will look dull. Mixing up dark tones on the wardrobe doors with lighter colours for the upper tier of cabinets can solve this problem.
To break the monotony of wood covering the entire length of the wardrobe doors, one can include a band of metal to provide a pleasant contrast to built in wardrobe designs.
Single-toned wardrobe door designs can get a stylish boost with the addition of a contrasting strip of wood or a bold colour.
Instead of restricting the wardrobe design to a single material or colour, it’s a clever idea to incorporate different elements in different sections of the wardrobe. Replicating the same design on both sides helps to create a mirror image that brings symmetry to the area.
An alternative to using mirrors, especially for those who follow Vastu Shastra and don’t want the mirror to reflect the bed as it is inauspicious, using a shiny laminate is a suitable option.
Another idea for bringing a stunning element to the bedroom wardrobe is by including beautiful block prints or motifs on the door to contrast the wood or solid colour.
In a home with a minimalist or modern design, using a lighter shade of wood that complements the neutral tones in the rest of the room is an excellent idea.
One can use the doors of the closet as a canvas for artistic prints. In a modern bedroom, abstract designs in neutral shades such as black, white and grey introduce a sophisticated look to the room.
Instead of adopting the conventional straight-lined hinged or sliding doors for the bedroom wardrobe one can adopt an irregular or asymmetric door to create a highlight, especially when the closet door is left open.
Replicating a carved pattern that appears in the furniture on to the wardrobe door not only brings synergy to the room décor but also adds beauty to a plain wardrobe.
For those who don’t like the idea of having a transparent glass door for the wardrobe, using tinted glass is an alternative that protects the privacy of the closet, besides reflecting the space to make it look larger than it is.

When looking at wardrobe designs for small bedrooms, if using a mirror door is not an option, then an alternative is to have a small band of reflective material running through the centre.

Instead of using mirrors on the wardrobe doors of small bedrooms to make the room appear larger than it is, one can choose a darker shade such as grey in a glossy finish to create the desired effect.

While there are several alternatives for getting an eye-catching wardrobe design for the bedroom, it’s vital that the material, colour and style blends with the rest of the room’s décor. Additionally, the wardrobe should be functional, which is its main purpose in the bedroom. It’s advisable to consult an interior designer for suggestions on the type of wardrobe that is best suited for a bedroom.
