The first free-standing closet was a large chest. It was simply decided to make the unit a little higher to hang up long winter coats and dresses. If the clothes were piled up in the chest, the closet offered the more accurate storage of your coats: on hangers. The first free-standing wardrobes were only made of wood, were very heavy and looked bulky.
Over time, the design of the unit changed, solid wood was replaced with veneer and wood products, and recently designers offered to use vinyl and other modern materials to modify the cabinet. Traditionally, a freestanding wardrobe is divided into two main compartments: for long dresses and coats and for folded clothes (in stacks).
The longer area for coats has a rail with hangers and the other compartment has shelves. Although these units are not very popular as built-in wardrobes today, they are still used in most homes. If the cabinet is a freestanding unit, it is easy to remove, move, redesign, paint. When choosing a color, follow simple and universal rules.
Bright, saturated colors always attract attention. Let light colors for modern interiors. Dark colors “absorb” light. Therefore, in order to make the room lighter, it is necessary to choose a lighter and lighter cabinet. This point must be taken into account when choosing the large unit: its color affects the interior of the room. If your closet is too tall, combine it with the shorter pieces of furniture: chests, ottomans, coffee tables.
