The traditional wardrobes are those that are rectangular shaped with 2 doors that face each other. The handles are placed in the middle opening respectively which usually comes with 2 large drawers at the bottom. Inside the conventional wardrobe, there is usually a small drawer used to keep personal belongings as well as a steel bar that hangs across the top.
