Things you need to know about fitted wardrobes

Fitted wardrobes are a great addition to any space, allowing you to organise your clothes, accessories and shoes.

The perfect solution for optimising every square inch of your home, floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes will not only free up much needed space, but they can also be tailored to meet your individual requirements.

And, if you’re struggling with space in your home or you’re desperately seeking more storage, you’ve certainly landed in the right place! Here’s everything you need to know about fitted wardrobes…

Future proof your home

When it comes to choosing your fitted wardrobe, it’s important that you look at it as a long-term storage solution that will grow with your family.

With this in mind, it’s vital you choose a design and finish that not only suits your personal style and existing décor now, but will also suit your taste later down the line.

You will quickly see that there are a wide range of designs and finishes available that will suit contemporary or traditional décor choices, so make sure that your choice adds value to your home.

Tailor Made

One of the main benefits of fitted wardrobes is that they can be tailor made to suit your bespoke requirements and personal tastes. This means you can choose to add as many drawers, clothing racks, compartments, cupboards or shelving as you need!

So, when it comes to the design process, it’s worthwhile choosing a company that will manage the entire production process, from concept to completion.

Did you know that doors can make a difference?

When it comes to choosing the design of your fitted wardrobes, it’s important that you consider the size and shape of the room you are working with as this will have an impact on the type of doors you can choose.

For example, if you’re limited on space, you should opt for a bi-fold or sliding wardrobe door. And, remember, if you are working with a small bedroom, you should consider mirrored fitted wardrobes as these can create the illusion of a larger room!

Preparation is key

Of course, before you begin any interior design project, preparation is key! With this in mind, you should measure the ceiling height at both ends of the room, as well as in the centre of the ceiling to determine whether the design of your wardrobe needs to accommodate an uneven ceiling.

Next, it’s important that you also check the floor level as fitted furniture can now be designed to meet exact dimensions or variation of the floor level. And, when it comes to your choice of flooring, fitted wardrobes tend to work best on a hard floor rather than a carpet. This is because wardrobes fitted on carpet can drop over time.
