In choosing the wardrobe for the bedroom, today there are many more possibilities than before. Because the available finishes are really numerous (lots of lacquered and laminated / melamine colors in addition to the various essences available) and because bed and wardrobe are no longer part of the same collection in which each piece is necessarily finished in the same style, material, color, but one is “free” to match what one wants.
However, if the wardrobe is now totally free from the “forced” combination with bedside tables and bed of the same series, this makes it more difficult to choose, because you are afraid of not being able to combine colors well (for furniture, walls and floors) or types of wood. The doubt becomes even more pressing when you already have some elements that can not be changed (the floor for example) and you have to buy only the wardrobe .
In some cases it may be fundamental – due to the presence of too many colors – to take a floor color back into the wardrobe, opting for a sample lacquered model , that is exactly in the desired color. This is a very frequent case, even when you want to keep old floors of marble chips or cement tiles that are composed of different colors and which may slightly limit the chances.
Let’s take another example: the wall behind the bed has been painted gray or upholstered with a tapestry ? You can have a lacquered wardrobe in the same RAL color of the wall or in one of those present in the wallpaper. Also taking into account the differences in tone and reflections on different materials (plaster and wood panels), wardrobe and wall will be perfectly matched.
A crucial issue for an optimal result is then to exploit all the available space both to contain more, and to have a pleasant “whole-wall” effect . Two possibilities:
- if you are renovating , you can make niches perfectly tailored to fit a standard-sized wardrobe (previously chosen, because not all companies have the same standard);
- you buy a standard size cabinet and complete it with just one custom-made moduleto keep costs down. Alternatively, if you want an equal size, all the modules should be tailor-made with obvious consequences on the price because a standard model has a lower cost than a custom one.
In such cases it is not necessary to contact a craftsman, because some companies are able to guarantee the customization of the wardrobe in all aspects, the finishing and the measurements. In general, the customization of colors and sizes costs from 25 to 40% per cent more, unless special offers and promotions .
