The lightweight  plastic cabinets  are a suitable choice for anyone looking for an efficient, easy and affordable way of organising their clothing and daily essentials. However,  plastic cabinets can not be considered a permanent alternative to a  wardrobe.  Additionally, they are also not very efficient when it comes to security. However, they do help in keeping the essentials and other items free from dust and moisture. For the plastic cabinets for the bathroom and wash basins, like the  Nilkamal Gem Plastic Cabinet with Mirror (Mango Wood),  you can see the mirror options available for your grooming. 

Things to Keep in Mind When Choosing Between a Steel Almirah and Plastic Cabinets


Some things should be kept in mind while selecting a suitable  wardrobe  for your clothes and essentials, be it a  plastic cabinet  or a  2 door wardrobe.  Both of them serve the same purpose of providing space for your essentials but hold different significance when it comes to durability, style, design, practicality and affordability.
