Mirrored Doors

Mirrored wardrobe doors will work wonders on the way your bedroom looks.

They are especially recommended when the bedroom is rather small because with the mirrors effect it will look more spacious.

Sliding Doors or Panels

This is a rather modern design feature for wardrobes.

Instead of traditional doors that open with hinges, shifting doors or panels make wardrobes look sleek, as well as reduce the need to use up precious floor space whenever the door is opened.

So they are aesthetically pleasing as well as great for space saving.

Built-in Cupboards

Instead of sticking to a simple design where the wardrobe is solely made from doors, you might consider including a built-in cupboards.

These could be made from different materials too, making it stand out even more.

Integrated Bed

Another interesting design idea is to have the bed incorporated in the lower part of the wardrobe.

In this way the wardrobe is really easy to access, and you would also be saving up floor space too.

Melamine Wardrobes

Fibreboard is a great material for those who want their wardrobe to look modern as well as be lightweight.

Many people hate having a bulky looking wardrobe which engulfs the rest of the furnishings.

Fibreboard is an ideal option in such a case.

Besides it comes in various colours, including natural tones too.

Multifunctional Wardrobes

Your wardrobe could look really modern if you incorporate additional functions within it, such as a chest of drawers, or a TV unit.

Nowadays having a desk within a wardrobe is also a popular option especially in children's and teens’ bedrooms.

In such a way they would be able to use their bedroom as a study room, or simply to use their laptop or tablet more comfortably.

Transparent Cupboards

If you are very organised you might wish to consider having the wardrobe doors or cupboards made from a transparent material.

The interior of the wardrobe and the items stored within will then be visible.

This makes it look really original and modern.

Incorporated Drawers

Instead of having the wardrobe composed of only doors, you might wish to allocate a part of it to drawers.

This could be in the middle section, or at the ends of the wardrobes.

This idea does not only look nice, but it is also a practical idea as you may store smaller clothes such as socks and scarves more neatly in the drawers, rather than on shelves.

Sleek Designs

Contemporary decor is mainly all about sleekness.

So, if you opt for a sleek closet instead of traditional doors in wardrobes, you will achieve a modern look.

Glass Screens

Another popular option is to use glass (clear or frosted) for the wardrobe doors.

With a unique look, glass doors will make the wardrobe look lighter as well as sleeker.

This is a great option for those who are looking for a contemporary design idea.

Narrow Wardrobes

Instead of having the typical width wardrobes which are generally made nowadays, you could opt for a narrower width wardrobe.

These are obviously going to have a smaller storage capacity but they make the wardrobe look sleeker and very modern, taking up less floor space.

This is an ideal option for those who are more concerned about achieving a modern look instead of focusing on maximising storage space.

Laminated Doors

Using lamination sheets on wardrobe doors will allow you to give a whole new look to your wardrobe.

Laminated doors can be easily achieved thanks to the application of lamination sheets made in any colour, pattern or texture you fancy.

This is surely a great way to make a wardrobe look modern, as well as add some colour to your bedroom.

Vintage Look

For those who prefer a more traditional look, you might prefer a vintage wardrobe.

Such wardrobes are typically not ideal for small bedrooms since they are not the best at space saving and practicality.

This is because you will usually find such wardrobes to be of a lower height, and not flush against the floor or ceiling.

However, they do have a unique charm about them, and if you are all about a classic look a vintage wardrobe is surely a great option.

Solid Wood Wardrobes

There are those who prefer sticking to a classical look, and in that case a wardrobe made from solid wood is the way to go.

Apart from looking sturdy and robust, such wardrobes will also be truly durable and able to hold considerable weight.

With solid wood you would also be able to have decorative elements added to the design of the doors.

Custom Painted Wardrobes

Decorative additions such as stencilling could make your wardrobe look more original and personalised.

You can be as creative as you like with this!

This is surely a great wardrobe design idea for children's bedrooms, as well as for those who would like to make their bedroom look more colourful.


Your wardrobe does not have to be that huge, bulky furniture piece.

You can find ways to make it look more unique and original, while adding flair to your bedroom.

As has been noted in the above design ideas, you can be creative both from a classical or a contemporary perspective.

The sky is your limit when it comes to design ideas, and this includes colours as well as materials.
