Pine Wardrobes Buyer Guide


Langley Pine Gents Double WardrobeIf you are looking for a new wardrobe or perhaps new bedroom furniture then this guide is for you. I take a look at anything and everything to do with pine wardrobes from the benefits through to the different sizes and designs.

I use real examples from companies like The Cotswold Company, Dunelm and Wayfair to show you how the different sizes and designs of wardrobes can be used in different ways and what part pine plays. Let us start by asking why choose pine?

Why Choose Pine?

There are a couple of major benefits of pine that come together to offer some really lovely wardrobes including some amazing pine wardrobes with drawers. Firstly there is the look. There is something about pine. There is a warmth to the look which is extremely popular with people.

Add to that the fact that it is an affordable wood and peoples interest increases further. Pine is cheaper because it is so widely available. It is easier to work with increasing the demand. With many sustainable forests these days pine is abundant and thus the price is lower.

Finally although not as strong as oak pine still has plenty of strength in it. It has more than enough strength to hold your clothes. Oak is stronger but it doesn’t need to be that strong – pine is plenty strong enough.

Any one of these benefits is good but when they combine together they produce some wonderful furniture. As you will see below taking into account the different methods of assembly, the different sizes and different designs pine wardrobes are a real plus to nay bedroom.

Flat Packed, Part or Fully Assembled?

Pine wardrobes come in many shapes and sizes but one of the first things to consider is how do you want the wardrobe assembled? There are three options

1. Flat Packed
2. Part Assembled
3. Fully Assembled

Flat Packed

If your budget it tight and you don’t mind getting down on the floor to do some screwing and hammering then a flat packed wardrobe might be the better option.

Officially flat packed furniture is made from MDF which means Medium Density Fibreboard. I like to see it as the processed food of the furniture world – it manufactured, its cheap but isn’t as good. Natural solid wood is better although more expensive.

There is definitely a place for flat packed wardrobes though. Many peoples needs for storage far exceed their budget. When this happens the flat packed option is best.

You will need to screw it, hammer it and generally assemble each and every part but that is the trade off of it being so cheap.

Part Assembled

A step up from flat packed are part assembled wardrobes. You still need to assemble these but instead of assembling each and every component part you will simply need to bolt the base to the sides, front, back and top. A wardrobe can be as sew as six sections.

These are far better quality though made of real pine wood that is amazingly solid. The price is higher but you get what you pay for. I own the Langley Pine Gents Double and have done for a few years. It is as good today as it was when I bought it.

Part assembled pine wardrobe should be seen as an investment. It has the convenience of a flat packed with the quality of a quality fully assembled wardrobe.

Fully Assembled

It is often thought that fully assembled wardrobes are of a superior quality. That is true if you are comparing to an MDF made Flat Packed unit that comes in a couple of boxes. Fully assembled are normally of a higher quality but they do have a major down side.

If the wardrobe is delivered fully assembled it can be difficult and sometimes impossible to actually get to your bedroom. This is particularly the case for wide doubles and triples. This is why I usually recommend a part assembled. As I said above all the quality but with the benefit that you can actually get it to your bedroom.

Pine Wardrobe Sizes

Pine Wardrobes come in a number of different sizes based around how many doors they have – Single, Double, Triple.

Single Wardrobes are great for small tight gaps of for rooms with a low need for storage such as a guest bedroom. Pine is perfect for single wardrobes as you can see from the Corona 1 Door Wardrobe below. Single door wardrobes are typically full hanging but some models do have a drawer in the base or a shelf above the hanging rail. This just depends from range to range.

Double Wardrobes have two doors and a number of different designs. The number of designs is greater than a one door model. They often come with drawers which can range from one through to three or four. They rarely have shelves but if they do it is above the hanging rail like the singles – see the Hamilton Pine Double Wardrobe and Oakley Pine Gents Double Wardrobes below.

Triple Wardrobes are the largest and most varied in design. They can have come with any number of drawers. Some will have shelves but this is usually behind one of the doors rather than above the hanging rail. Some will have both shelves behind a door and drawers although most have one of the other – See the Hamilton Pine Triple Wardrobe and the Berrington Pine Triple Wardrobes below.

Where to Buy Pine Wardrobes

There are a handful of retailers that we recommend – The Cotswold Company, Dunelm and Wayfair. We recommend these retailers because they sell great furniture that each target a different market. The Cotswold Company sells high quality solid wood wardrobes. Dunelm and Wayfair prices are lower overall offering a wide range of designs and finishes.

The Cotswold Company – Visit Site

Having personally purchased pine wardrobes from the Cotswold Company I can say with confidence that the product you get is of the highest standard. They sell much more than just solid pine wardrobes. There are a number of furniture ranges for the whole bedroom and the whole house. They are made from solid wood and in most cases are pre-assembled. On top of top quality solid wood furniture they offer a number of great additions. For a start they have a number of delivery times including the evening and Saturday mornings. They have a packaging removal service, a assembly service and finance on most items.

Dunelm – Visit Site

The reason we recommend Dunelm is because they have a number of fantastic flat pack solid wood wardrobes which wont break the bank. We detail three of these below from the Corona collection. Dunelm also offers a wide range of various items of furniture covering the house. From a wardrobe point of view they offer everything from single wardrobes through to 3 and 4 door wardrobes, those with drawers, shelves and even a number with mirrors. All are amazingly priced and available to all.
