American Type Wardrobes
Contextually, the American type, especially in highly populated cosmopolitan areas like New York, belies the need to bridge constricted space in apartments, studio rooms and tenement houses which accounts for the walk-in wardrobe. The latter is backless, having only a façade projecting in minimalist design from the receptacle wall.
The design is at once clutter free, sophisticated and functional. It gives license to the pun that post-war apartments in major suburbs like Manhattan gained huge appeal to tenants virtually because of their very designate and classy wardrobes.
The American walk-in enclosure vaunts 14 inches in height per storage rack. It has collapsible rods that run perpendicularly just shy of the floor meaning that one can change the positioning of a shelf or even the tangent beams. Sliding door types quintessentially come with the colonial timber look including oaken. They are meant for function and utility, rendering patio-like demarcation of space as well as for seamless essential opening and closing. The façade can have tinted, transparent or textural glass.
In walk-in wardrobes, one is likely to find a half a dozen, easy-to-dispose racks for footwear on the left chamber, with the middle reserved for hanging jackets at the top with the upper center for a press and lower center for other drawers. The right rack is commonly meant for under garments, robes and other delicate items of dress.
