The Good and Bad of Fitted Wardrobes

From reading a number of articles from home renovation magazines and talking with my friends and work colleagues, there’s seems to be a level of fixation on getting a fitted wardrobe installed. Before you become overwhelmed with excitement about this furniture and rush out to the first wardrobe designer you can find to get the job done, please take some time to have a read at this fitted wardrobes guide. I have tried my best to succinctly provide some basic overview of the main advantage and disadvantage of this wardrobe option.

The biggest draw factor by far for a lot of people is the customization that can be achieved. Unlike ready-made, standalone wardrobes that you get from furniture stores, you practically have complete flexibility with a custom-built wardrobe. There are situations when a pre-made wardrobe is inadequate. Some examples include:

When the space in your bedroom is awkward to fill or even used by a regular shaped standalone wardrobe.

When the storage configuration you require is very specific and unique that ready-made wardrobes don’t cater for.

When your personal taste in design is specific and unique. This goes beyond merely picking the construction material such as a pine wardrobe.

So, as you can see, you can get your wardrobe to look and behave exactly the way you want as well as fully utilizing the space in your bedroom.

Now, the main disadvantage is the cost involved. As you can imagine, with this much flexibility, it’s bound to come at a price. Compared to wardrobes that are already made, perhaps constructed by machines in an assembly line, there is a significant difference in cost. Fitted bedroom wardrobes aren’t something that every household can afford. If you’re on a tight budget but still want to customize, be very wary about how much you’re willing to spend. Firstly it may be worth getting a quote to see exactly where you stand before making a decision.
