Finding a way to store your possessions can be a complicated task, especially when it comes to clothes and accessories. Wardrobes, cupboards and chests of drawers can be rather large items that play a significant role in a bedroom, which is why it is important to make sure you’re making the right statement with yours.
For some households, it may be worth considering antique cupboards and chests of drawers as a stylish solution to your fashionable storage. Many were designed for lots of clothes storage and are made of strong quality materials, standing the test of time for centuries.
Made of strong wood like oak or mahogany, antique cupboards and drawers are made of sturdy stuff and are able to withstand a lot of storage and hold many clothes and accessories. This isn’t always the case with cheaper more modern styles which are subject to breakages due to less dedicated craftsmanship.
Authentic wood antiques will also usually feature detailed carvings and design, which provide something that much more unique and beautiful than your standard modern furniture. For something that you’re going to use every day to store your collection of clothes and accessories, is it not worth the investment?
Investing in antique furniture for bedroom storage can also make a noticeable difference to the aesthetic of the room. It has a romantic element that can’t be cloned by modern copies, it holds a past and has stories to tell. Many an evening can be spent wondering what life your furniture had before it ended up in your hands.
The stylish exterior of a finely made antique wardrobe or chest of drawers allows your day to be fashionable and elegant from the get go. Getting ready in the morning by opening a grand and exquisitely designed item of furniture is an inspiring way to start the day and is bound to push you into more adventurous fashion choices.
The purchasing of a wardrobe is usually a fairly large commitment. They’re big items of furniture and often expensive – so choosing an antique with a classic and undated design ensures you have something that’s always in fashion. Antiques are often timeless pieces and even if you do change your mind or move somewhere smaller further down the line, you shouldn’t find your piece too hard to sell or pass on to family.
Antiques are always an effortless interior style choice and project a luxurious and quaint atmosphere. What could be more perfect to inspire your own personal style?
