Four Steps To Buying A Custom Fitted Wardrobe

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?

The Benefits of Bespoke Fitted Wardrobes

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.
