Including a mirror in the inside door is very practical for being able to check your appearance. It is useful having access to a mirror without having to incorporate mirrored doors. Mirrored doors aren’t for everyone, they do require lots of cleaning and polishing to look their best.
The colour choice is clean and contemporary. Grey has become such a popular colour lately. It is such a versatile colour. Not as reflective as white but still good at making a room feel airy and spacious. It also stops a room being cold and stark. The walls of the room are painted in quite a bold colour but because of the neutral grey wardrobe, light coloured carpet and white ceiling it works. If in the future the client wanted to change the colour scheme the Grey Steel wardrobe would work well with other colours. It is a very flexible choice as your tastes change in the future the wardrobe can remain as the one consistent in the room.
The walnut grove handles are an effective contrast to the light grey backdrop. The handles are more of a feature for the room as they really stand out and give the wardrobe lots of personality and character. Light grey works well with natural wood, so they are paired well together.
Going with routered handles is generally more minimalistic. This helps with the general understated feel of the room. But because of the colour choice of the handles it is not as streamlined here as it could have been. Those handles do capture your attention without being overly fussy or elaborate.
