Beautifully Designed Fitted Wardrobes

Great bespoke fitted wardrobes are designed to complement the way you live. From the wardrobe to an entire bedroom, fitted furniture generally has flourished into sleek, space saving designs well suited to any home’s interior.

Bespoke wardrobes are not stocked in the inventory of the local furniture store. The very word bespoke indicates furniture made for the individual home and the manner in which the owners live and use their wardrobes. Bespoke is a common term in the U.K. A comparable term in the U.S. would be custom made.

A bespoke fitted wardrobe is custom fit to the room it will occupy. Much like a tailor measuring for a suit, it aims to maximize the space of the room by precise installation.

Measurements are taken from wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor, or on the angle where the piece will be fit into – yes, it is possible, depending on the installation company, to install a wardrobe into awkward spaces which otherwise would be wasted empty areas.

There are a number of different fitted wardrobes, each suited to a different space or budget. The different styles include partially enclosed wardrobes with sides and a front, but no back; an open installation, with no sides or back, just the sliding or swinging door, attached at the top and floor; and a fully enclosed installation most similar to stand alone furniture.

The last design style is still fitted precisely into the space, from top to bottom and between walls. It is a space saving, attractive choice for fitted wardrobes, and the most costly.

Precision is paramount when installing such a wardrobe. Finding carpenters with experience is the key. Check with the company you order from, as they will usually have referrals or do the installation themselves.

The cost of bespoke fitted wardrobes varies. Factors affecting cost include the size and amount of space needing to be measured for, the materials used for the furniture, and the manner in which it functions.
