Investing in Premium Wardrobes
If you’re in the market for premium wardrobes, you may already have an idea of which styles you want for each bedroom, choosing between built-in or walk-in wardrobes, sliding door or hinged door robes. But what should you look for to ensure you’re investing wisely in quality wardrobes that will stand the test of time?
Read on for considerations when choosing a wardrobe company, to ensure you’re getting a premium product and top design.
High quality doors & drawers
During your research comparing wardrobe brands, you may come across some styles that look similar – but the difference will be in the quality of the materials and manufacturing. Whether hinged or sliding, the quality of your doors and drawers is paramount, because they’re going to get a lot of use (typically being opened and closed at least twice a day).
Look for doors and cabinet modules made from high quality, moisture resistant board with a good thickness and high quality finish, so that they won’t buckle or get surface dents from light knocks. Freedom Wardrobes uses 18mm board on all doors, with the thermo-laminated styles wrapped around the edges and made for durability against scratches, stains and chipping.
Also look for wardrobe and storage island drawers with a soft-closing mechanism like those from Freedom Wardrobes, to prevent slamming – it’s safer on fingers, and they’ll last longer.
Smooth hinges and rollers
All of that opening and closing can either be a daily pleasure that you don’t even think about, or a daily pain that really starts to grind your gears.
Quality is particularly important with sliding door styles, where inferior materials and manufacturing can result in doors that don’t slide smoothly, getting stuck at certain points in the tracks. Precise alignment of the components is key to prevent this, as found in our Tri-Panel Sliding Door systems.
