Ideas for fitted wardrobes

Wardrobes can be built into difficult spaces including alcoves and lofts to maximise your space. We can build any style including contemporary, shaker style, traditional.

Choosing the right materials is an important step of every project. It will make your wardrobe last longer and you will enjoy using it for years to come.There are a number of factors to consider such as wood finish or paint finish, do you want glass or mirrors incorporated into the design, do you want to match your existing furniture's colour or style.

Choose your material

The doors of your wardrobe should be strong and sturdy to allow for regular use over a long period of use. We use premium grade materials on all our projects.

Hardwood doors

Hardwoods offer a quality finish and texture for your doors and drawers. The doors are typically finished with a clear oil to bring out their natural colour and show their beautiful grain. You have a choice of materials including oak, black walnut, ash, sapele, iroko, tulip wood or veneered doors in oak, ash, walnut etc.

Paint finish doors

For a more contemporary look we offer a painted finish which allows you to choose the colour, which can be useful if you want to match other furniture in the room.

Wardrobe interior

Soft woods are used for the frame as they offer flexibility during production. We offer three options, melamine, painted wood, or real wood veneers.

Choose your door type

Sliding doors

Sliding doors are a great space saver. If you have a small room then opening doors can take up valuable space and make it difficult to move around the room.

Mirrored doors

Mirrored doors are a great option for smaller bedrooms or for rooms that are dark or gloomy. Mirrors can make a room feel bigger and will also amplify natural light helping to make your room feel bright and airy. Mirrored doors can also save space as there's no need for a separate full-length mirror taking up valuable floor space. Mirrors can be used on both sliding doors and front opening doors.

Choose your hardware

Ironmongery or hardware is a key part of any project. Handles, hinges, drawer runners, sliding track systems and hanging rails all make up the component of a well functioning wardrobe. We use quality brands like Blum for our hinges. As you will be using your wardrobe regularly, we recommend choosing the best quality hardware your budget can cater for.
