One need not have to get into the wardrobe to look for something. Infact the wardrobe reaches out to user.

Home owners can buy branded Hettich, Hafele, Ebco, etc. as per their budget. Incase of limited budget, home owners can choose from Ebco hardware and accessories which is an Indian brand. Otherwise home owners can buy Hettich hardware and accessories, which is German brand. Say, a hardware or accessory of Ebco brand will cost Rs.200, while the same from imported brand would cost around Rs.300/- to 400.

Laminates

For modular Wardrobes either Merino Laminates or Greenply plywood is used. Both of these are the market leaders when it comes to making modular furniture. Marino ply is a bit expensive than Greenlite but both are as sturdy and durable.

The starting range of Marino ply is 1200/- to Rs1250/- per sheet. You have wide range of designer laminates that costs around 2000/- and more. And if you happen to buy anything that appears like steel or metal, the sheet will cost you almost Rs. 6000/-. Greenlite plywood too has a similar starting range. Greenlite has a wide range of designs and patterns that go very well for kid’s room. Like today where kid’s furniture are made as per theme or cartoon characters which is available in Greenlite ply only. Therefore one will generally find Greenlite ply used in kids room.
