Fitted Wardrobes? Dark or Light, and Does the Colour Matter?

When picking details for new fitted wardrobes, we believe that colour is one of the most important choices. The colour of a wardrobe affects the look and feel of a space and can change the style of a room or complement the existing style perfectly.

There are a few things to ask yourself when thinking about the colours of your bespoke wardrobe.

What Style is Your Home?

The great thing about bespoke fitted wardrobes from a professional company like ours is that we have so many different door and finishing options, so there’s bound to be something that compliments the style you have or the style you want to have!

Do you want modern, contemporary, and chic wardrobes? Mirrored or glass doors are a great option, as are doors with high gloss finishes. If you’re looking for a more traditional style, then a wood finish could complement the overall tone of the surrounding interior.


What Size is the Room?

The size of the room is an important consideration when choosing between dark or light fitted wardrobes.

If the room in question is small, choosing finishing colours and options to make the area feel larger and more spacious is key. In this case, light-coloured doors are usually better for making a room feel bigger and mirrored, and high gloss finishes also work well. Mirrored and high gloss doors reflect the existing light around a room, making it appear lighter, brighter, and bigger.

We also recommend customers opt for wardrobes that go right up to the ceiling in smaller rooms and spaces. As well as maximising all the available storage space in a small room, this creates a bit of an optical illusion, making the wardrobe less visible, allowing you to focus your eye on other features of the room.

You can afford to opt for darker colours in a bigger room as you don’t need to focus on bouncing light around. Darker shades can be great if you want to create a statement piece, as dark colours can draw the eye and help you make a bold impact.

Whether you want a light-coloured wardrobe, a dark one, a multi-coloured one, or one with transparent doors, the team at Infiniti2 is on hand to assist you.
