4 Door Wardrobes (Quad Wardrobes)

Chantilly White Quad WardrobeA few years ago my wardrobe needs was nothing more than a simple double wardrobe. Now they are at least a triple and even that is becoming tough to put all my clothes in. Perhaps you are like me? If there is one thing we have easy access to these days it is clothes and that results in bigger storage needs. Perhaps you have multiple shirts for work, weekend clothes, gardening clothes and your best wedding outfits. We have a outfit for all occasions. With all these clothes comes a huge need for storage and that is where a quad wardrobe comes in. A quad wardrobe aka a four door wardrobe has an abundance of storage options often including drawers, shelves or a combination of both.

In order to own a wardrobe of this size you will typically have a large need, a large bedroom and a large budget (although finance is often available). You don’t just buy a quad wardrobe – you make an investment. If you are looking to buy please visit The Cotswold Company. They are our recommended retailer.

Quad wardrobes offer hanging rail storage and very often internal shelves and additional drawers. They offer not just a large volume of storage but a large number of options which we go into a little more below.

Material Options

Oak

Oakland Quad WardrobeOne of the first things that springs to mind with a wardrobe as larger as a quad is the need for real strength. It doesn’t just need to be large enough for all your clothes – it also needs to be strong enough. If you are looking for a strong wood then you cannot do better than oak. Oak is known for it strength and although it does end up costing more it does offer a wardrobe that will withstand the tests of time.

Painted

Chantilly White Quad WardrobeIf you are not a fan of the wood effect that oak gives you then you can opt for a painted quad wardrobe. These are often made from the same wood but have a painted effect. This is most typically white or grey although if you look carefully and take your time you may be able to find other colours.

 

Design Options

Full Hanging

The most standard type of wardrobe is the full hanging. This is simply where you have hanging rail throughout without shelves or drawers. The Chantilly White Quad Wardrobe which you can read more on below can be set as a full hanging wardrobe if you remove the adjustable shelves. This is ideal for a married couple with a large number of dresses, suits, shirts and trousers.

With Drawers

One of the best designs of wardrobe no matter how many doors there are is the wardrobe with drawers. This is a great way to increase storage even if only by a little. A quad wardrobe with drawers offers a huge level of storage often removing the need for a separate chest of drawers. There are a few designs around including designs from The Burford Painted, Chester Grey and Oakland Collections (please see below).

With Shelves

One of the great options is the optional shelves. As mentioned above the Chantilly Quad offers you the chance to either use shelves or remove them. Typically they are available behind the far right and far left doors. Great examples of this are not only the Chantilly Painted Quad but also the Chester Grey.

With Drawers and Shelves

As well as an option on shelves some offer you pretty much everything. Not only do you have hanging rail storage but you can add in shelves and have drawers beneath. There are typically either two or three drawers below a quad wardrobe.

Cost of a 4 Door Wardrobe

Obviously the larger the wardrobe the more it is likely to cost. The quality is also a factor. The ideal is to find a wardrobe that costs enough to know that it is made from food long lasting materials while still being affordable and cost effective enough to buy. One of the major factors in determining the price is the wood that is used and the condition the wardrobe is delivered in.

Flat Packed

Flat packed wardrobes are wardrobes that come in boxes and are made of MDF. They are a lot cheaper than solid wood wardrobes but for good reason. The down sides is that they are of much poorer quality with a less solid structure and a much shorter useful life. They are really only for people who cannot afford a better quality wardrobe. Quad wardrobes offer a high level of storage and therefor need to be strong. For this reason we do not recommend flat packed quad wardrobes.

Part Assembled

Part assembled are the ideal as far as we are concerned. Much like flat packed the sections arrive in boxes but that is well and truly where the similarities end. The quality of wood with part assembled wardrobes is far superior to that of flat packed. The sections are bolted together to form a wardrobe as solid as a fully assembled wardrobe but with none of the downsides. It is the best of both worlds.

Fully Assembled

While many people believe that fully assembled wardrobes are the best there is a good reason not to buy them. A quad wardrobe can be up to and around 200 cm in height and is often even wider. The Chantilly for example is 224 cm in width. Imagine for a second someone turning up on your door with that wardrobe. Assuming they have managed to get it off the truck and to your door without dropping or damaging it how are they going to get it to your master bedroom? How are they going to go into your house, turn it and carry it up the stairs and round the corner into your bedroom all without marking either the wardrobe or your walls? Strong wood equals a really heavy unit and wood does not bend.

Other Considerations

The Cotswold CompanySo we recommend part assembled but you still need it built. Another consideration is whether the retailer will construct it for you or whether you must do it yourself. Our list of best wardrobes below are for sale by The Cotswold Company. This is simply because they are the best online retailer of wardrobes and other bedroom furniture and we know that first hand having bought from them.

Those sold by The Cotswold Company have an additional option available to get them delivered to your room ,the packaging to be removed and the wardrobe assembled. Check with them before ordering. They also offer finance so investing in a new quad wardrobe has never been so affordable.

Finally you need to consider if you need any other furniture. This could mean a chest of drawers or a new bed. It is much better to buy matching sets of furniture so be sure to work out what your exact needs are as that may help you determine what wardrobe is best for your needs. It could be for example that two double wardrobes are better depending on size and design.

Where to Buy Quad/4 Door Wardrobes

There is any number of places to buy furniture these days with many of them being online. With so many options how do you know where to buy a wardrobe? Here we recommend a number of the best places to go as well as give solid reasons why. There are many to choice from but those shown below are in our opinion the very best.

  • The Cotswold Company
  • Wayfair
  • Dunelm
  • Furniture Village

 

Best Quad (4 Door) Wardrobes

Please Note: None of the wardrobes we recommend here are delivered part assembled. This is simply due to the weight and the size of the wardrobes. As said above many of these wardrobes are over 2 meters long and tall. They simply will not fit up stairs and around corners in most modern homes. We recommend part assembled wardrobes or for a cheaper more affordable option flat packed wardrobes.

Oakland Quad Wardrobe

Oakland Quad WardrobeThe Oakland Quad Wardrobe is made of oak and as you can see from the picture is a stunning wardrobe that offers a beautiful warm look that you get with oak. It offers everything you could want and hopefully everything you need. There is hanging rails at the top of all four doors although the left and right doors can also hold internal shelves. Below them is three drawers – two narrow drawers either side of a wide drawer.

It is 195 cm tall by 200.20 cm wide and 58 cm deep. It weighs in at a massive 156.6 Kg’s in weight and that is before you have filled it with anything. While this may seem like the perfect wardrobe for a master bedroom we feel this may also be ideal for almost any bedroom. With the shelves and drawers it can eliminate the need for a seperate chest and that can save space. Why have a wardrobe and chest of drawers when you can have both of them in one unit.
