The different types of fitted wardrobes

Once you’ve decided that fitting a wardrobe is a wonderful idea, you’ll need to know what’s available. Here are the 5 most common options:

Built-in wardrobes

Built-in wardrobes provide a versatile storage solution for any space, no matter the dimensions. They are made with a specific purpose in mind and are fully customisable. You even have a choice of hinged or sliding doors.

Large wardrobes

A large floor to ceiling wardrobe can be built to accommodate just about anything from a massive clothing collection to bountiful accessories, with interior fittings to match. Choose from sliding doors if you have limited space, hinged doors for more opulent areas, fancy pulleys for specific needs, or a combination of them all.

Corner wardrobes

These are ideal, space-saving options that can be installed anywhere in your home. Corner wardrobes can be built in a range of shapes and are useful as a means to alter the overall design aesthetics of a room, smoothing out corners to take on a different form or dimension. Sliding or hinged doors are both possible options.

Walk-in wardrobes

Walk-in wardrobes are the ultimate in storage extravagance, allowing you to walk breezily inside them as you browse your clothes rails. They can be built with or without doors depending on whether they form part of an existing room or are situated in a whole separate area. Although they are magnificent they do take up a lot of space, so you need to consider whether you have enough to give up before choosing this option.

Sliding door wardrobes

Sliding door wardrobes are a stylish way to save space and are perfect for rooms that are a little more compact. As the door does not open out, you don’t need to think about clearance space in relation to other fixtures. They can be ordered with single or multiple doors and the handles can be recessed or used as a design feature.
