When buying a wardrobe there are a few options to consider. Firstly do you need free standing or a more fitted approach? Free standing wardrobes are very flexible, but don’t offer that truly integrated feel. Let’s consider the free standing option first. Believe it or not, you can buy free standing robes that are huge. Triple wardrobes with bags of storage. They also provide more options on style. Our partners provide a wide range of colours and different types of wood. But also some also come with lovely ornate finishes to them.
A fitted option is usually extremely expensive and requires an onsite visit to measure up and make specific adjustments and bespoke furniture. That’s great and you can usually just place your order with a single sales rep and forget about it. However speaking to our customers that’s rarely the case. We’ve heard of lots of cases of costs escalating and painful experiences of bedrooms torn apart from big footed builders. There’s a third way. That’s the modular bedroom furniture option. It’s a half-way house between free standing and fitted wardrobes. The idea is that you choose the various carcasses (or frame) options to fit the space you’ve got. Then you apply the fascia options (i.e. doors) that are of the style you want.
It’s usually assembled by yourself in the room of your choice. While that may feel daunting, it’s really not. The only downside is that if you have a room with odd shapes and unusual ceiling styles you’ll probably need to leave a small space. But with savings of up to 60% over fitted, it’s normally something that we find people are happy to live with.
One thing we are constantly asked is about the flat pack issue or build at home. Flat pack has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years. We know that the engineers at the manufacturers spend countless days working out the best way to get the wardrobe into a box for delivery, but also be extremely easy to assemble at the other end without have a lifetimes experiences building houses!
Also, these days we’re seeing many more ‘part assembled’ pieces of furniture. Here the aim is to break the wardrobe down into 2 or 3 pieces, enough to be transported safely and then just a 15 minute job at your home to assemble it. These options are usually solid wood wardrobes as well.
So don’t be put off by the thought of building it at home yourself. And if you’re still not convinced, then there are plenty of home assembly services that are not expensive either.
So, when choosing wardrobes for your bedroom keep these questions in mind:
- Do I need free standing or fitted (or perhaps Modular)?
- What’s the wardrobe made of? All wood, or just parts of it solid wood?
- How will it arrive? Assembled? Part assembled or flat pack?
- Can I get the boxes up my stairs or into my room?
- What happens if I need a spare part (my kids friends jump into it!)?
- How long do I get before I can send it back?
- How long is the warranty?
