Where to buy a discounted black wardrobe

The word wardrobe comes from old French words "warder" (keep or look after) and "robe" (garment). Its first manifestation was as a room dedicated to clothing. It was not until the nineteenth century that the wardrobe became the piece of furniture that we know today. Wardrobes are handy items in buildings which lack closets and black wardrobes add sophistication due to a colour, many associate with formality and elegance. Discounted black wardrobes are better still, for they offer practicality and style without laying waste to one's bank account.

Furniture stores

Furniture stores' sales section are always a good place to look for cheap wardrobes. These wardrobes may be the last of a line, a return, or semi-damaged or scratch and dent. The only drawback for seeking black wardrobes here is that finding them depends on timing. Other people will be scouring the sales section as well, which means you will have to act quickly. The selection of black wardrobes will most likely be limited as well.

Salvage and surplus stores

Salvage and surplus stores may also be a good source for discount black wardrobes. There, you might have a better chance of finding a wider variety, such as large wardrobes or double wardrobes. Furniture here might be more along the line of the scratch and dent variety, in that wardrobes which retail stores considered too damaged or flawed to have on the showroom floor. You may also find black wardrobes which belong to a discontinued set. Make sure that you carefully inspect these wardrobes before buying them. Do not discount ones which may have a hinge missing or minor flaws, since these flaws might be something you can fix yourself and still come out ahead in the savings department.

Auctions

Auctions are a good source for black wardrobes as well. These auctions may be estate auctions, commercial auctions (foreclosed stores), or even online auctions. The benefits of the estate auctions and commercial auctions is that you will be able to do a level of inspection of the wardrobes before buying them - important to make sure that you will not be buying a piece of furniture damaged beyond repair. When buying through an online auction, make sure you ask for plenty of photos and additional information before finalising the sale.
