The Benefits of Fitted Wardrobes
A bespoke fitted wardrobe is tailor-made for your room by taking measurements of even the most awkward spaces available – even around established features like eaves and chimney breasts. Amazingly, you can increase your storage space by 40-50% with a fitted robe as opposed to a generic, free-standing one. You can also add useful bespoke features like mirrors, shelving, safes, and even folding work tables to create a compact home office.
Another great benefit of fitted wardrobes is you can make the most of your floor space and not let any areas go to waste – whether it’s an attic room with sloping ceilings or an oddly shaped bedroom with lots of alcoves. However, fitted robes aren’t just for rooms with too many nooks and crannies. They also add a fantastic designer touch to master bedrooms, guest bedrooms and even childrens’ bedrooms…
Types of Bespoke Wardrobes
There are three types of bespoke wardrobes available: sliding doors, bi-fold doors and pivot doors to cater to your exact needs. Wardrobe designs range from wall-to-wall executive suites, to traditional two-door robes with mirror pannelling, to space-saving alcove closets.
You can choose from a range of natural wood colours like coffee, chocolate, caramel or pine – or go for bold statements like black and red geometric patterns or eye-catching primary colours for kid’s bedrooms. With bespoke wardrobes, the possibilities are limitless and you have the opportunity to create your own unique piece of designer furniture. Alternatively, if you don’t want to play the creative cat, you can choose from a fabulous range of existing designs which are then made to measure – giving you an excellent impression of what the final piece will look like.
The Cost of Fitted Wardrobes
The beauty of custom-built furniture is that you can decide how large or small your fitted wardrobe will be, what materials to use, and even what types of shelving, drawers and mirrors to place on the inside. This means the cost of fitted wardrobes can vary considerably – but generally you can expect to pay £1,000 to £1,500 for a two-door alcove wardrobe (depending on the size and specification, the internal layout and the materials used). Elaborate, full scale fitted wardrobe suites can cost thousands of pounds.
Adding Value with Fitted Furniture
If you’re into home improvement, installing fitted furniture is an excellent way to add value to your home. A fitted wardrobe looks impressive, adds considerable character and functionality, and helps the room retain its aesthetic appeal for years to come. It is particularly in modern, bijou apartments where storage space is at premium. Clever use of space will always add value to your property.
