In his play ‘Hamlet’, Shakespeare wrote that ‘the apparel oft proclaims the man’. Admittedly, that was the sixteenth century, and this is the twenty-first. But it is interesting to note that the statement still holds true: clothes are often the first thing we notice about someone. That line, it may be said, has become a driving force. Look good, people say. Look professional. Dress decently, or casually.
The point is, appearance matters – as does effectiveness – and Elevate has exactly this in mind when bringing you the modular wardrobes available in their Elevate Wardrobes & Kitchens, Santarossa and Ego Design range of furniture and home décor fittings. These don’t look good and function well, but also ensure that the clothes that contribute to your appearance are maintained.
What’s a modular wardrobe?
You must have heard of a modular kitchen, as it can be found in any flat of the swanky new complexes that are so popular these days, and people like throwing big words around. A modular wardrobe, though, is not as much a popular thing as far as terminology is concerned – even if it occurs with as much frequency as a modular kitchen. A module, in the furniture and furnishings world, refers to a part or unit that is assembled with other such units in order to make up a larger item of décor while being self-contained in its own right. Think of it as analogous to a set of Lego blocks: each piece is contained in its own right, but if you fit them together, you get something entirely different and wonderful. So just as you have a modular kitchen made up of individual parts (shelves, cupboards, cabinets, counters and so on), you also get modular wardrobes that are constituted of individual sections that come together in perfect harmony.
Just how popular are modular wardrobes?
Very! Possibly even more than modular kitchens, because they are used not only by home builders, but also in hotels and guest houses and so on. And, in most places, the kitchen is one, but the rooms and bedrooms where the wardrobe may be fitted are many.
In reflection to this huge demand, modular wardrobes are available in a variety of styles to suit a range of budgets and spatial needs. You can opt for a cozy and compact wardrobe that fits neatly along one side or in a corner of the room, or a modular that functions like a walk-in closet in terms of size and storage options. Materials, colours and finishes vary accordingly.
