What is a Wardrobe?

A Wardrobe is a space for storage. Used mostly in bedrooms, it need not be just a simple box with shelves inside. You will be surprised at the range of designs possible, some of which are showcased here.

Some of these designs are easy and hence do not cost as much. Few others need a lot of material and skill and could be higher in cost. This is what we plan to discuss here today.

How to calculate the cost of Wardrobe?

There are some simple steps which need to be followed while calculating the cost of wardrobes.

  1. Decide the size of the wardrobe. Typical wardrobes are 7' in height (or door level). Make sure that this is what your contractor has used. Many websites sell wardrobes of 6'-6.5' and people do not realize the difference until its too late. The width can be around 1.5' upto as much as the length of the room. You will get square feet of the wardrobe this way. To get more help on this, please check this small post also.
  2. Decide the function of the wardrobe. Do you have lot of clothes to hang? Do you need to keep linen in the wardrobe? Is it going to have kids toys? Do you need space for shoes as well? This decision will help you have a discussion with your designer and it impacts the cost as well.
  3. What kind of theme are you thinking of for the room as a whole? Do you already have some furniture like bed that you will be placing? Is the room a guest bedroom or the wardrobe is in the master bedroom? This will help you decide what finish you will need. Again, to get idea on the finishes possible, please check this link.

Prices can vary dramatically based on your answer to the questions above. If you need help, you can always Contact Us for your specific requirements and we will be happy to help you with your interiors.


Based on the above factors, consider the finish you are planning and multiply the square feet you calculated in point 1 above with the approximate rate given below. Please keep in mind that this rate is tentative and may vary across geographies


Type of Finish Rupees per Square Feet*
Laminate Rs.1400
Acrylic Sheet Rs.1700
Veneer with Melamine Rs.1900
Polyurethane (PU) Rs.1900
Liquid Acrylic Rs.2000
Lacquer Glass Rs.2000
Polyester Rs.2200

* Rates are indicative based on general prevalent prices across India. For exact prices in the cities where we work, please contact us.

Please note that the prices above keep some basic things in mind. H

  1. The plywood used for all framework is IS303 BWR or MR plywood.
  2. The polishes (where mentioned) are done on HDHMR boards.
  3. Normal close fittings from Hettich or Ebco are taken with normal hinged shutters.
  4. All laminated / acrylic sheet shutters have 2mm PVC edge banding.
  5. One drawer considered for every 1.5' width of wardrobe

You have to add for costs in case of designs on shutters since they can add to wastage as well as labor. In addition, extra drawers inside or outside could also add to the cost. Other things which could impact the cost is use of sliding shutters, design complexity, soft close hardware etc. Kindly keep these things in mind while planning so that you can keep the extra margins.


Keep in mind that this is where a lot of interior designers or contractors fool you while sharing the initial quotes. To know more about this, please read this short article.
