Eight stylish spaces that are sure to inspire a wardrobe makeover
You can now rent fictional character Carrie Bradshaw’s New York City apartment via Airbnb and we’d like to make a dash for it but not just because we’re fans of the TV series Sex And The City. The famous apartment proved that even the littlest of homes can make space for walk-in closets. For most of us, it’s still the stuff of dreams because of space constraints and compact layouts of new high-rise apartment buildings. So until we can visit and study the TV miracle ourselves, we’ve made a list of all the ways in which you can still make a style-forward decision with these modern bedroom cupboard designs.
Floor-to-ceiling closets are all the rage in the world of modern bedroom cupboard interior designs and it’s easy to see why. The large, continuous panels not only make the most of the space available in the room but they also lengthen the room, making ceilings seem higher. When used in a neutral shade complimenting the rest of the room, they mimic a fourth wall. The best part? Everything you own goes inside these floor-to-ceiling cupboards creating clutter-free bedroom interiors. Inside, the floor-to-ceiling cupboards allow you to truly customise storage solutions, allowing you to mix-and-match shelves, pull-out drawers and hanging rods.
Style Tip: There was once a time when most Indian middle class bedroom interiors employed loft-style cupboards above the wardrobe for additional storage. You don’t necessarily have to say goodbye to that nifty feature – just use all those hard-to-reach top shelves.
Mirrors and lacquered surfaces always make a space seem bigger. For compact bedroom interiors, sliding doors with mirror fronts are a great space-saving design element. Mirrored panels in modern small bedroom cupboard designs open up the room and eliminate the need for a separate dresser.
Style Tip: The latest bed room cupboard designs feature mirrors in different shapes, colours and finishes. Here, the otherwise minimal bedroom interiors are elevated by the use of mirrors that create a geometric design on the sliding cupboard doors.
A bolder approach to stylish modern bedroom cupboard design ideas is the use of slatted wood. A striking design element for bedroom interiors, the parallel and evenly spaced pieces of wood in the sliding doors here not only allow light and air to pass through the closet but also offer a peek into the homeowner’s belongings.
Style Tip: As the wooden slats are open, the cabinet doors can be backed with tempered glass to provide a protected storage environment.
All glass wardrobes require some serious derring-do and a commitment to always keeping your belongings neat and tidy but the rewards are seriously glamorous bedroom interiors. Here, transparent glass is framed in gold and bronze-coloured aluminium for full-on Gatsby look, richly lit by gold and yellow LED lighting. Special showcase style shelves are employed to highlight prized possessions. All-glass closets run the risk of feeling sterile, stark and impersonal so the latest bedroom cupboard designs make use of warmer materials for bedroom like wood, especially on the inside.
A hallmark of the Art Deco era, reeded glass, also known as fluted glass is another beautiful way to infuse glamour into the bedroom interiors and still retain subtle privacy when creating modern bedroom cupboard ideas. Reeded glass doors can be framed in brass for a full-on glam or paired with wood for a more classic and timeless bedroom cupboard interior design.
For bedroom interiors short on space, the area allotted for the wardrobe can be used serve multiple functions. The latest bed room cupboard designs can fit in everything from dressers, TV units and study tables. In this largely fuss-free and minimal master bedroom cupboard design, a display cabinet for family mementos is carved into the space of a single cupboard door.
Style Tip:The mixed use of modern small bedroom cupboard designs also helps break the monotony of large, chunky wardrobes usually found in Indian homes.
Glossy finishes are a sure-fire way to achieve glamorous and stylish modern bedroom cupboard designs. These highly reflective surfaces can be achieved by making use of laminates, acrylic or paint on the cupboard doors.
Style Tip: For truly chic bedroom design, mix-and-match textures and patterns as seen here – glossy cupboard shutters are set against plush materials like the solid wood bed, the fabric and slatted wood headboard and marble flooring.
In the world of bedroom interiors, some things never go out of style and the classic walnut finish for wood is just that. For this handsome master bedroom cupboard design, the solid wood doors in a walnut finish make a quiet statement against the warm bedroom interiors.
STYLE TIP: Wall-to-wall cupboard designs can be over-bearing so if the bedroom interiors allow it, carve out spaces for a TV unit or bench within the wardrobe design.
While we’ve gone over all the ways in which to create bedroom cupboards that seamlessly blend into the bedroom, there’s no denying the appeal of a classic two-door cupboard. A fuss-free, two-door modern small bedroom cupboard design is also the easiest to find at furniture stores and is best suited to those who are used to moving often.
Style Tip: Set against a matching TV unit here, a wardrobe such as this, when picked in a neutral shade is sure to fit right into any kind of bedroom interiors.
