If hauling a wardrobe up a flight of stairs doesn't appeal to you, then having a custom fitted wardrobe can be both a functional and attractive addition to your bedroom. Do it right, and you'll not only save on space, but it will also work to complement the overall décor.
Here is a set of points to consider when buying and installing:
Measure, measure, measure.
Measure the depth of the gap, leaving a minimum of 620mm for both the doors and the inside part; the height of the gap on the left, centre and right hand side; and the width of the gap should consist of two measurements; a quarter point from both the top and bottom.
Ensure that the sliding doors complement the décor.
Whilst function and fit are the most important factors, there's a wide range of options which will work well with your room if you make time to search for them. Some stores offer a customised range, as well as standard variations of wood.
Choose the right internal storage system for your needs.
This will depend on the scale of your wardrobe, both in terms of the interior gap as well as how many articles of clothing you wish to store.
Think about the details.
Would you like to have skirting to match the rest of the floor? Do you prefer sliding doors for a more streamlined effect, or even door handles which open outwards?

It always seems that houses never have enough storage, especially the bedrooms. The best solution is bespoke built fitted wardrobes. They offer a number of advantages over free standing furniture: -
Custom designed to order
One of the great advantages of bespoke wardrobes is there is little limit of choice compared to ready-made furniture. Whether you want traditional or contemporary or have a themed bedroom, the exterior of fitted wardrobes can be matched to your whim. They can have pull out doors, sliding doors, doors with mirrors, doors with windows … there's great choice
They save space
Comparatively the space taken up by fitted wardrobes compared to free-standing furniture is much less. The footprint of free-standing is much greater and things like skirting boards and covings have to be considered. Fitted wardrobes do not have such issues. Fitted wardrobes can also be made to exactly fit spaces, even really tricky ones. And unlike ready-made furniture, fitted wardrobes can be designed and made to deal with, cover and hide features such as sloping walls, uneven walls, alcoves, chimney breasts and other quirky property features.
They make more space
It is with the interior of bespoke fitted wardrobes where advantages can truly be realised. The interior can be designed to meet all your bedroom storage needs from shoes to linens. It can be designed with areas of hanging space and rails, shelves, pull out shelves, drawers, compartments, wire baskets, shoe racks, tie racks … all the things that practical and functional storage demands.

Bespoke fitted wardrobes have numerous benefits over their standard, mass produced, freestanding counterparts. Here are five of those advantages: 1. Improved Use of Your Free Space Unlike mass-produced freestanding wardrobes, bespoke fitted wardrobes are made to fit your available space, including awkward alcoves, corners, and other otherwise inaccessible areas. Fitted wardrobes are also ideal for loft conversions, which have become quite popular in London, as they offer storage solutions in areas with indented walls and sloped ceilings.
Modern homes often lack the storage a modern family needs. Most of these structures have awkward spaces and inconsistent room dimensions. Custom fitted wardrobes can be the solution to all ages and sizes of house.
Custom wardrobes make the most of available space, not wasting footprint with feet, fascias and backings that free-standing units require. The footprint of a fitted wardrobe is also far more efficient than a free-standing wardrobe. Additionally, custom-built fitted wardrobes are tailored to homeowners’ requirements, offering innovative, clever and efficient storage solutions for rooms for all ages.
Bespoke fitted wardrobes maximise and optimise the available interior storage space. There is a wider range of internal storage solutions than in free-standing wardrobes. They are built to order and can be made for awkward spaces where a free-standing wardrobe or other unit won’t fit, dealing with issues such as sloping ceilings, air vents, unused fireplaces, alcoves and beams etc.
Those aforementioned issues can spoil the look of a room and even be considered ugly. A fitted wardrobe effectively hides all the unpleasant aspects of a bedroom. Custom wardrobes are ideal for smaller rooms because they can be built with sliding doors which means extra space is not required for the opening of hinged doors.
Custom built wardrobes are cost effective because they deliver the solution wanted and needed. Some house selling experts will argue that having built-in wardrobes adds value to your home, and there are many design options and colour schemes available to meet your needs.
