What are the best material finishes for wardrobes?
Veneers are widely used as an external finish because they have the ability to impart a look that’s both traditional and modern. Veneers are made from thin layers of natural wood and are available in numerous designs that add an element of warmth, elegance and richness to space. Veneers require regular maintenance, as they are prone to show up scratches. To retain the shine of the surface it is important to re-polish the wardrobe periodically.
Laminates are most commonly used in wardrobe designs for bedrooms as they have great qualities such as high durability, water-resistance, cost-effectiveness and low-maintenance, besides being easy to clean. There are many options to choose from, in terms of designs, colours and finishes, which include high-gloss, textured and matte finishes. The main drawbacks of a laminate are that it is brittle, prone to chipping and cannot be repaired once damaged.
How about fixing mirrors onto the wardrobe doors? The mirror finish is an attractive way to visually increase the size of the room and add to the illusion of space.
Bring in a sense of lightness with glass sections in the wardrobe door panels instead of going for the conventional solid door panels. The straight lines and glossy finish of glass give a sleek and modern look. One can choose from frosted, tinted, plain and lacquered glass. It is easy to clean, low on maintenance and can be easily installed.
Make a bold statement with leather or faux leather or vinyl panels on the wardrobe doors. The introduction of a leather finish is a great way to add warmth and style by softening the sharp edges and corners of the wardrobe. Consider the same material for the headboard to weave together the design features of your boudoir.
