A person can have different wardrobes according to the space and requirement. Here are 4 different types of wardrobes you need to be aware of:
1. Walk in
This wardrobe is possible in spacious houses. It is a room where all clothes, shoes, accessories are placed together. A person can walk in the room, stand there and access the items. These wardrobes can have a dressing area too. The size of a walk-in wardrobe depends on the size of house or the collection of clothes, shoes and accessories a person has. For an example: an American woman named Theresa Roemer has a 3000 square feet wardrobe over three stories, which is considered to be the largest closet in the country.

2. Reach in
These have doors, sliders or curtains, but a person cannot enter into a reach-in closet. When the door is open, one can have a full view of the closet and have a look at the whole collection. These are made of rods to hang, shelves of different sizes to store clothes, shoes and accessories.
3. Standalone Wardrobe
Standalone wardrobes are also called a freestanding closets. It can be customised or purchased. These wardrobes are mobile, a person can shift these from one place to another and these can be sold or replaced anytime. But standalone wardrobes have limited space. As they don’t go up till the ceiling, the space left above can’t be utilised well.
4. Loft Wardrobes
These wardrobes go up till the ceiling height and have a loft over them which is used for storing extra clothes which don’t come in use daily. So these make most of the use of the space available. Few times, a mirror and shelves are incorporated with these closets, this way these serve both the purposes.
