Wardrobes Adelaide – Closet Space – For All Your Clothing Needs
Wardrobes Adelaide are one of those things that make a home look more complete and also make it easier to find what you’re looking for when you need it. A wardrobe cabinet is a multi-level standing closet designed for the storage of clothing. The first wardrobe was simply a chest. Until some level of luxury was achieved in the castles and palaces of powerful noblemen, separate dressing rooms were provided for these powerful men’s dress. The wardrobe needed to be guarded against the vagaries of the seasons and theft from the family castle.
Wardrobes were initially constructed out of wood in dark recesses in the wall, much like our wardrobes today. There was no option of hanging cupboard doors on them, just individual slots where hangers could be fitted for hanging shirts or trousers. Hangers for hanging shirts and trousers had to be nailed to wooden posts, which were then screwed into the wall, requiring manual labour. So, before the invention of the wardrobe itself, the wardrobe had to be designed with adequate security in mind.
In the later part of the 19th century, with more significant improvements in the world markets, including electrical appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines, wardrobes Adelaide with all of the storage capacity they needed were manufactured. Clothes were now being packed into boxes, which were opened and hung to dry or, in the case of long garments, for machine drying. With the invention of machinery in textile factories, the storage of clothing was revolutionized. Individual clothes could now be packed into boxes and stored individually to have enough room for washing and ironing if needed.
One of the most revolutionary ideas for storing clothes came from the wardrobe of a laundryman trained by his father to add such a feature to his own home. Known as the “laundry pantry,” his innovative and ingenious contraption of a rotating door mechanism to store clothes and allow easy retrieval was patented in 1907. The “eight small men” mechanism worked by allowing two of the eight small men to move up and down the rotating door to access and remove clothes. The door was also adjustable so that the garments could be retrieved and folded accordingly.
The twentieth century brought with it yet another innovation in the realm of wardrobes Adelaide, the closet. This time, instead of two doors for hanging or storing clothes, we now had three doors, with storage space on either side of each door and, in the middle, a cupboard or other division for hanging clothes. In this way, a woman could easily hang her clothes and place delicate items in the cupboard or side racks while her other possessions lay on the floor or nearby. The closet had become a much more efficient space saver, allowing for easy access to many goods.
