Transform your bedroom with high-gloss wardrobes

Hammonds Elkin cashmere sliding wardrobes

The love of high-gloss is here to stay this year, and this isn’t just limited to the kitchen space. If you’re thinking of going for fitted wardrobes in your bedroom, a high-gloss finish is definitely worth considering. Here are a few reasons why…

Effortless style 

Maximalism is set to be one of the hottest trends for 2019, high-gloss sliding wardrobes create the perfect minimal backdrop if you’re going for a maximalist look throughout the rest of your bedroom. Going for a neutral high-gloss gives you the option to mix and match your colours and textures without worrying about anything clashing. Don’t be afraid to have some fun, the beauty of a neutral high-gloss finish is that it works with just about everything. Go for big, bold artwork prints on opposing walls and a statement tall headboard in crushed velvet to create a feeling of dramatic opulence against the sleek sheen of your high-gloss wardrobes.

Style meets practicality 

High-gloss wardrobes can create a real statement in any bedroom, especially when you go floor to ceiling or wall-to-wall. Not only will this create a seamless dovetailed finish, but it will also give you all the storage space you need. The practicalities don't end there though, gloss wardrobes are also easy to clean. With a wipeable surface, you won't need to get your feather duster out. Unlike wood, they're moisture resistant, so if like many of us you struggle with humidity in your bedroom you can rest assured this won't affect your high-gloss. 

Light and bright 

Gloss wardrobe doors, particularly in white or light tones, can create a distinctively brighter aspect for your bedroom over a dark wood finish for example. But don’t let that deter you from choosing a dark high-gloss, the sheen is highly reflective which helps to bounce natural light around the room. Where possible, try to position your wardrobes near your bedroom window to maximise the light. This will really help to open up the room, creating a bright and airy space.

Dynamic design 

While single panel doors can look ultra-minimal, that might not be the style you want to create. Mix it up and go for high-gloss glamour with panelled wardrobe doors. This is a great way of tying in different shades and textures. If you didn't want to go all-out gloss, you could blend your design with a matt finish wardrobe panel to break it up in a contrasting tone. Or introduce a deep wood grain for a rustic yet modern feel. Mixing two tones can also create a unique aesthetic to the bedroom design and give you a little more to play with for your accessories and accent colours. You can have up to five panels and there is a wide range of designs and colours, so there's bound to be a style to suit your taste.
