For ages, mirrors have been the only thing to rival diamonds in the struggle for women’s affection. Perhaps it’s vanity, but women were fixated on their looks long before mirrors came to be – think of still pools of water. Today you will rarely find a lady’s handbag lacking at least a small compact mirror. This mirror business has been taken to the homes, too, where most rooms spot a mirror of some kind. The mirror in the bedroom or dressing room is especially crucial because this is where all the magic in the looks of the woman is made.
Of growing popularity are mirrored wardrobes due to their multiple benefits, and we have a team of designers and fitters specialised in making and installing these wardrobes. If you want a custom-made wardrobe, they are the professionals who take care of your needs.
What kinds of benefits are we talking about?
Wardrobes with mirrored doors come with aesthetical, functional, and practical benefits. First off, the mirrored wardrobe is a stylish, upbeat design that is rapidly gaining popularity in homes and hotels. It beats its traditional all-wooden-door counterpart by a stretch and modern hotels are using it for its convenience and visual appeal. You just grab your clothes and put them on without having to move from the wardrobe to the mirror and back.
Another benefit is that a mirrored wardrobe door will enhance the visual appeal of the room, making it seem larger even when small and stuffed. This becomes a different case when the room has more than one wardrobe, though, because then the opposite effect is achieved. If the mirrored wardrobe doors are directly opposite each other there will be a confusing optical illusion that is likely to ruin the entire outlook of the room.
In a room with limited space, a mirrored wardrobe door is a space saver because the mirror is also the door. This is opposed to when you have to allot a corner space for a standing vanity mirror or on the wall for hanging a framed mirror.
Yet another benefit is that grooming becomes much more satisfying thanks to a full length view. With the mirrors inbuilt in the wardrobes, you don’t have to hang a full-length mirror on the outside of a wardrobe door in order to be able to dress in full view. This larger viewing area comes in handy especially for people who are bigger or taller than average.
So, how do you choose the ideal design?
The mirrored wardrobe is available in different varieties, so you must choose carefully to complement your finished bedroom. The different forms and designs that mirrored doors come in include hinged doors, sliding doors, bi-fold designs, and tri-fold designs. The installation process also varies from design to design – installation of new folding and sliding doors instead of replacement, for instance, calls for track installation on the floor and in the door frame.
Every bedroom is a space that is distinct from other bedrooms, bearing the personality of the owner. Even so, bedrooms are often identical in the doors, hardware and fixtures. If you want to introduce mirrored wardrobes but still maintain this continuity, talk to our fitters and they will help you select a design that will work with all the rooms before you install in the first room. Nevertheless, you should know that carpeting the rooms from wall to wall will achieve the same end as the mirrored wardrobes.
