Choosing the Material and Finish of Your Wardrobe

When selecting the material and finish of your wardrobe, you will need to consider many things. One element which will dramatically affect the look of the final product is the material and finish used. You should always choose materials which are practical and attractive. Also, make sure you consider the prices of the materials. Some of them are overpriced and generally offer the same benefits as other materials.

Here are some materials for you to consider:

• Solid wood

This is perhaps the most common material used to make wardrobes. It is strong and robust, so you can expect your wardrobe to last for long. Depending on the design used, solid wood can bring out the mood of the room effectively.


This is an engineered wood material that is made with particles obtained from real wood. It is commonly used to make wardrobes, and that is primarily because of its affordability. Even with the low price, MDF can last for a long time. Some people use particleboard as a substitute for MDF since the two materials have the same properties.

• Plywood

Plywood is historically a favorite for wardrobes. It is strong and extremely durable. The problem with plywood is its very high cost. Today, more and more people are abandoning plywood for cheaper MDF, particleboard, and solid wood.

There are several options when it comes to wardrobe materials. You can go through the pros and cons and determine the material you prefer for your furniture. If you have a question on the materials, make sure you contact our team for advice.
