  • Choose the one according to the availability of space. To make sure the comfort of its occupants, a room should not seem cramped or loose. Well, the arrangement of the closet itself is related to this. The easy way, if your child's room has a small space, don't force yourself to buy a large wardrobe – even if you feel, your child has a lot of stuff. Instead, try to sort out which clothes should be stored and which ones are not (because they are damaged or too small).
  • Buy a wardrobe that is under the size of the child's room. In addition to avoiding the risk of being too cramped/narrow, this method will also be useful for your little one's visual comfort. However, it must be remembered that the function of the wardrobe here is a space to store clothes. Therefore, also avoid buying a small / narrow wardrobe.
  • Align with the function. As already mentioned, the wardrobe model itself has various functions. For a wardrobe intended as a place to store books, you can use a wardrobe that is already a bookcase. This method, of course, makes it easier for you when you have to place children's books. Oh yes, do not forget to adjust to your child's height, yes. Avoid buying wardrobe that are too tall – it will only make it difficult for children to reach them. As for toy storage wardrobe, you can use the form of lockers or stacking wardrobe that are easy to open. Just like the type of children's wardrobe in general – must adjust the height to the children, yes.
  • Adjust to the child's age. The age of the child plays an important role in your decision to buy a wardrobe. If your child is a toddler or under ten years old; then you must buy a small or medium-sized wardrobe. Buying a cabinet that is too tall or large will only make it difficult for him to reach the objects in the wardrobe–especially on the top shelf. However, a good wardrobe must be able to support children to live neatly. That is why, it is important to pay attention to the size of the closet that is enough for the height of your child.

Patterns and Colors

Whether it's a minimalist child's wardrobe or a character's child's wardrobe, whatever type you choose, it is obligatory to adapt it to the concept of space. This includes the selection of motifs and colors – which are able to match the space, as well as support the aesthetic value of the space. Simply put, make sure your child's wardrobe is balanced and dynamic.

In the midst of a variety of wardrobes with bright colors (pink, light blue, green, yellow, orange, to purple) – it is important to pay attention to the concept of space. Do the colors blend well; become the focal point, or is it “an eyesore”? You have to consider all of them properly.

The opinion of your child is the most important thing in deciding what children's wardrobe you will buy. If there is time, ask for their opinion and invite them to choose the type of clothing they like.

Offer them about their preferred wardrobe model. This would certainly be better, than you decide everything yourself. After all, not necessarily your child will agree with the choices you make, right?

Regarding the motive, don't forget to consider the things that the child likes. This includes his favorite cartoon characters and characters, the motifs and colors he likes, whatever! Usually, this way will make him happy and like the presence of a new wardrobe in his room.

Wardrobe Price

Actually, the most important thing that you should pay attention to is to make sure the price of the wardrobe you are going to buy does not exceed the budget you have. For this one, it's a good idea to re-estimate the price range of the wardrobe.

Indeed, many branded furniture brands tend to offer a choice of children's wardrobes that are priced relatively expensive. However, don't be discouraged. After all, you can also get a cheaper alternative – for example by conducting a survey to other furniture stores; or buy it online.
