Oak wardrobes can be directly purchased from manufacturers as well as online. But you must be aware of the existence of fake wardrobes that are mostly multipurpose, yet they wear out quickly. Genuine oak furniture is made entirely of hard oak wood, is not shiny and does not contain any soft board. Their patterns are handcrafted, thus giving them a natural feel. When purchasing these items, always ensure that drawers are made from a single timber material and that the joints smoothly slide into one another. When the joints are rigid, it increases the rate of wear, and your wardrobe may not last for some time. A high quality wardrobe in most cases cannot be manufactured to store clothes and at the same time store television sets. These are very rare cases as the significance of the wardrobe in the house will not be felt. Most of such types of wardrobes and not made of genuine oak wood and usually target consumers who want more value for less money.  Some of the most reputable companies that manufacture quality wardrobes include Sheraton and Applewhite.

As technology continues to take shape, new manufacturing methods also come into play. Fitted wardrobes are common, whereby the artisan will take your room measurements and where you want your solid oak wardrobe placed, and then the wardrobe will be made depending on the measurements. The DIY assembly method is also used, and in most cases preferred to the former.
