Who says that wardrobe shutters have to be conventional and made out of wood and glass? There are lots of ways to uplift an ordinary looking wardrobe shutter and make it a conversation starter. It is one of the ways to give your décor a quick update without going the whole way. Wardrobes are an intrinsic part of most homes, so looking at different ways of doing up the shutters will give your interiors a fresh look.
If you have floor to ceiling wardrobe shutters, why not commission a local artist to paint them in strong and bold colours. This look is definitely not for the faint hearted. http://www.brittanyambridge.com
How about adding a padded 3D fabric panel to your wardrobe shutters, stylish and sophisticated….as seen in Living Etc
Make wardrobe handles out of MDF and paint it in a bright colour, the results are absolutely gorgeous as seen in Gemma Ahern’s home. abigailahern.com
You can create an exotic look by incorporating laser cut intricate patterns on laminate and using it as your wardrobe shutters. I love these. http://www.jaali.in
