Wardrobe flooring in a standard built in robe

Picture this: You swing open the doors of your wardrobe, ready to conquer the day with style. But wait! What’s that beneath your shoes? It’s not just any ordinary surface—it’s a fabulous flooring fit for a fashionista! Having flooring in your wardrobe isn’t just practical, it’s downright exciting (well for some of us!!)

  1. Cleanliness and hygiene: Flooring helps to maintain cleanliness and hygiene in your wardrobe. It provides a barrier between your clothes and the underlying surface, preventing dust, dirt, and potential allergens from accumulating on your clothing.
  2. Protection for your clothes: A solid flooring surface protects your clothes from any potential damage that could be caused by an uneven or rough underlying surface. It prevents snags, tears, or stains that might occur if your clothes come into contact with a rough floor.
  3. Improved organization: With a dedicated flooring surface, you have the opportunity to organize your wardrobe more effectively. You can use the floor space to place shoe racks, storage boxes, or additional shelving units, maximizing the storage capacity of your wardrobe.
  4. Enhanced aesthetics: A nicely finished flooring surface can enhance the overall appearance of your wardrobe. It adds a sense of completeness and sophistication to the space. You can choose from various flooring options, such as hardwood, laminate, vinyl, or carpet, based on your personal style and the desired aesthetic of your wardrobe.
  5. Easy maintenance: Flooring surfaces are generally easier to clean and maintain compared to bare surfaces. You can sweep, vacuum, or mop the floor as needed, ensuring that your wardrobe remains clean and tidy.
  6. Noise reduction: Flooring can help to reduce noise within your wardrobe space. It absorbs sounds and prevents them from echoing or resonating, creating a quieter and more peaceful atmosphere.


Overall, when considering having flooring it’s important to consider your storage needs, style preferences, and budget. Flooring for a small two door sliding robe can start from around $180 depending on the size. While having flooring in your wardrobe is not a necessity, it can certainly add value and convenience to the overall functionality and appearance of the space. Ultimately, the decision to install flooring in your wardrobe depends on your personal preferences, budget, and the specific requirements of your wardrobe.
