WARDROBE ES­SEN­TIALS

House Beautiful (UK) - - Hb Project Declutter -

When it comes to choos­ing wooden fur­ni­ture, look for re­claimed tim­ber, a scuffed fin­ish or white-painted styles to up­date your scheme

Be­fore you buy, have a good clear out of your cur­rent wardrobe and only keep things that you’ve worn in the last year or so. You’ll be left with a cap­sule col­lec­tion that will be eas­ier to man­age.

Look at the in­ter­nal fit­tings as well as the ex­te­rior style and fin­ish. Do you want a sin­gle or dou­ble hang­ing rail? What about added ex­tras such as belt and tie rails, ac­ces­sory draw­ers, shoe boxes and light­ing?

A floor-to-ceil­ing de­sign will al­low you to store last sea­son’s clothes and spare bed­ding in the top sec­tions.

1 Farm­house chic The Knicker­bocker wardrobe from Loaf has a lighter look and is made from solid re­claimed fir re­cov­ered from old build­ings, which is ideal if you want to make a more ecofriendly pur­chase. Priced £995, it has a slightly scuffed vin­tage fin­ish in off-white and comes with two draw­ers 2 Sim­ple and so­phis­ti­cated The painted wood­grain fin­ish on the Ori­gin Shaker wardrobe de­sign from Kin­dred would suit both clas­sic and con­tem­po­rary bed­rooms. In a Porce­lain fin­ish as pic­tured, prices start at £2,500 for two dou­ble wardrobes and a match­ing chest 3 El­e­gant fin­ish With a handy drawer at the bot­tom for hats, scarves, gloves and other smaller bits and pieces, the dou­ble West Coast wardrobe, £1,219 from Willis & Gam­bier, is a great space saver
