Choose Neutral Wardrobe Finishes


When does a colour become too much to handle? We all have a favourite colour and want to be surrounded by it because it makes us happy, but the truth is that it's a bad idea to add too much colour to a permanent feature of a room, like a wardrobe. As boring as it may seem, neutral colours are always the best choice when designing your wardrobe. Read on to find out why neutral wardrobe finishes are the preferred feature in any home.


Neutral wardrobes not only help to make a room look bigger and more sophisticated, they also make a room more warm and welcoming. Neutral colours are comfortable colours and will help you to relax in your bedroom rather than get worked up.


Neutral wardrobes give you the gift of many accessorising opportunities that can change from season to season. Vibrant colours are a fun way to show off your personality and personal design taste. The best way to make your favourite colour stand out is to use a neutral backdrop.

Highlight your finishings and textures

Textures can be easily overlooked or forgotten but making use of neutral coloured wardrobe doors and organisers will help highlight the various textures used in a bedroom like a rough spun rug or a highly polished vase.

Neutral is never boring… Never

When selecting your wardrobe finish and design, you may worry that neutral will become boring over time and a funky bright colour will always be exciting. The truth is that it's the bright colours often become boring very quickly, and soon you'll be regretting the bright orange finish on your wardrobe.

Consider if you'd ever sell your home

If you decide to sell your home in the future, you don't want the bedrooms looking like the inside of a carnival. Outrageous colours such as reds, purples and dark blues on wardrobes are difficult to paint over and expensive to replace, making your home harder to sell.
