Amp up your bedroom with these contemporary and versatile wardrobe designs

Wardrobes are key storage and organizational units in any bedroom design. Like other contemporary bedroom furniture, wardrobe and closet designs are geared towards optimizing for functionality. No longer are bedroom wardrobes relegated to just storing clothing. Accessories, books, travel bags, linens, etc., all require a space in contemporary wardrobe design.


Things to Consider when Designing your Contemporary Bedroom

Before you go ahead and choose which wardrobe design best suits your style, here are a few things to consider:

  • First things first, you will have to evaluate the space. Measuring is key. 
  • Next, try different layouts, see what works well in your space. You will also need to decide on the furniture you want to incorporate into your bedroom design.
  • This will help you determine the type and size of the closet design that you can comfortably fit in the room.
  • The placement of the bed, the dresser and the closet/wardrobe is important in relation to each other. Ensure that there is enough space for easy, unobstructed movement.
  • You also need to assess the type and extent of storage space you require. Consider how much hanging space you require, if at all. Will you need a separate area to store the out of season clothing? Where would you like to keep your accessories- the dresser or the closet? Questions such as these will help you determine your needs and, thereby, the right closet design for you. It will also help you choose the size, placement, etc., of the rest of your contemporary bedroom furniture.


Contemporary Wardrobe Designs for your Bedroom

Here are some contemporary bedroom wardrobe designs to help you choose what works

1. Sliding Door Wardrobe

As the bedroom size gets smaller, intelligent design solutions are all the more vital. A traditional pull-out double or single door wardrobe might be a luxury for many. One way to get creative is choosing sliding, folding doors, shifting panels, etc., for cupboards and closets. Bypass, sliding bi-fold, and accordion doors are great practical and space-saving options for almost all types of closets. Opt for glossy finishes such as metal and laminates for a sleek aesthetic. The natural wood look works well for rustic and modern styles.

2. His and Her Wardrobe Design

This is a great contemporary wardrobe design option for rooms that are shared. Dual wardrobe units like the His and Her wardrobe units are highly customizable and thus great for children's rooms. These are an excellent option for a lavish guest room too. Separate the two cupboards with a dresser and a mirror for a symmetric layout.

3. Contemporary Walk in Closet- Open Design

Doorless contemporary walk in closets makes all of your possessions accessible. When everything is laid right in front of you, the chances of going ages without using something are slim. Open designs also make organization easier since you do not need to remember what is stored where. This is also a great way to flaunt a colorful, fun and eclectic wardrobe.

4. Multifunctional Contemporary Wardrobe Design

When you're short on space and a lot needs to be fitted in one room, multifunctional units are a lifesaver. A built-in wardrobe closet with cupboards, shelves and a study area works perfectly for kids' rooms. A similar concept can be used in a study. You can opt for a built-in dresser for the primary room instead of a desk.


5. All Wood Walk in Closet

Wood is an evergreen material in terms of aesthetics and longevity. Its charm and warmth are unparalleled. An all wood closet with warm lighting is a luxurious and modern option. Keep the lines clean and opt for a natural finish. Complement the design with a plush carpet.

Engineered wood is a budget-friendly alternative to natural wood. Vinyl and laminate both offer natural wood finish options.


6. Contemporary Bedroom Wardrobes with Lighting

Adding lighting to any closets or cupboards will give them a contemporary look and make them more accessible. In wardrobes with tinted or transparent doors, lighting will provide the illusion of depth and make it look less cramped.


Recessed lighting is a must for walk-in closets and deep built-ins. You can use LED strips to light up the insides of cabinets and drawers. Clever use of lighting can help you highlight all the structural and hidden design elements of a wardrobe.


7. Contemporary Wardrobes with Pull Out Elements

Pull-outs are clever design elements that help you achieve a seamless look. Modern wardrobes with pull-out desks, dressers, mirrors, etc., are great ways to open up some floor space. This design is especially compatible with paneled wardrobe designs. Handleless, modular wardrobes will keep the look sleek while providing ample storage solutions.


8. Contemporary Wardrobe with Glass Doors

Glass doors for wardrobes are both a functional and an aesthetic option. They allow the light to penetrate, thereby adding depth to the room. They also allow you to access your belongings without any fuss. Combine glass with other materials for exciting and chic looks.


If you love wood grain, glass doors are a great way to display it. Opt for light to mid-toned wood for the main structure of the wardrobe. Highlight it with dark frosted glass-framed in matte metal.


Lighting up the inside of your cupboards will allow you to showcase your organizational skills and your fashion. Think of all the shoes, the bags, the sunglasses and other accessories that you can proudly display.


9. Minimal Doorless Contemporary Wardrobe

Contemporary design is known for its clean lines and simplicity. An open, doorless closet celebrates precisely this aspect of contemporary bedroom furniture. If you lead a minimal lifestyle, this is an excellent option. You can easily customize them to your needs. Most of such units are portable and easy to assemble and disassemble. So you can always change them with what suits you the best at the moment.

10. Contemporary Sliding Wardrobes with Reflective Surfaces

Mirrors are a great way to make any room look more expansive, especially in small rooms. With mirrored sliding wardrobe doors, not only do you get dual function, but it is another great way to open up some floor space.


Sliding doors with a glossy laminate finish are a great alternative to mirrored contemporary sliding wardrobes. They, too, do a great job of reflecting light and making the room feel airy and bright. This is an excellent option for glam and chic styles. It also works well in contemporary minimalist styles due to its sleek look.

11. Bedroom Wardrobe- The Organizational Unit

Such units are an all in one storage solution. You can add varied drawers, shelves, cabinetry and hanging space. You can easily incorporate such organizational units into wall-to-wall built-in wardrobes. You can make room for linens, bedding, suitcases, shoes, etc., all in this one unit. No more having to make space for each thing in different areas of the house.


Leave them doorless and add a jaali partition to create the effect of a walk-in closet. An ottoman will provide a nice cozy touch. If you prefer to hide it behind doors, opt for pocket sliding doors to make the most of the available space. If you have the room, you could fit a vanity or a dresser behind the doors. That'll help you keep the layout clutter-free.

12. Frame your Window with a Contemporary Bedroom Design

In-built wardrobe design surrounding the headboard wall is an excellent option for a small bedroom. Two full-length cupboards on either side of the bed and cabinets or shelves connecting the two is one way to do it.


Alternatively, choose a dynamic wallpaper behind the headboard to offset the wardrobes on either side. Play with asymmetry by changing up the placement of the bed. If you want to open up the room, even more, a pull-out bed that can be tucked back in the wardrobe is a good option.
