If you’ve managed to find this article, I am going to assume that you are sitting on the fence at the moment as to whether you should invest money in a set of fitted wardrobes for your bedroom, den or whatever the room may be. I can completely understand your situation – a fitted wardrobe can be much more costly than a stand-alone ready made pine wardrobe armoire that you purchase from your local furniture store. It is after all designed and constructed to fit your particular room. Hopefully once you read through my short guide, you’ll be a bit clearer as to which direction is right for you.
As I’ve hinted earlier on already, the main advantage of bespoke fitted wardrobes is the customization. Why would you want to take that extra step of customizing? For some people, it is because of personal taste. You might not be able to find exactly what you want in any retail shop so the only viable option is to get one designed for you.
Another possibility is due to a physical constraint. The case might be that your room has an awkward space (such as a slanting ceiling or irregularly shaped alcove) and no stand-alone wardrobe exists that can fill that area effectively. This is a big one I must say – often rooms of houses aren’t constructed to a standard in measurement as to suit stand-alone wardrobes.
With a fitted bedroom wardrobe, you’ll be able to make use of the space you have much, much better. This leads me to one other point. Some people have the misconception that such a wardrobe is only good for homes with big spaces. That’s not completely true. They are also used in apartments where space isn’t as ample as a traditional suburbia house.
At the end of the day, the final choice needs to factor the budget you have to work with as well as the purpose for your wardrobe.
