How to Build a Fitted Wardrobe

With easy to construct DIY kits available, DIY fitted wardrobes are not as difficult as they may first sound. However, if DIY isn’t your forte or if you’re worried about whether you’ll be able to, you always have the option of our professional installation service. 

We’ve outlined the key points you should consider when building your own wardrobe below:

DIY Fitted Wardrobes: Before You Get Started

Get your measurements just right

Perhaps the most important stage of wardrobe installation is making a success of the measuring process. When armed with a set of accurate measurements, and by making note of any special requirements, you’ll ensure a smooth fitting.

Read our preparing and measuring guide for a technical breakdown of how to approach the measuring process.

Order samples – be sure to pick the right colour!

There’s no going back once you’ve measured up, started constructing your wardrobe and realised that your chosen shade of blue doesn’t match up to your carpet, cupboards or chest of drawers!

Our samples are free, and you can order up to eight at once. All you have to do is use our special discount code to remove the £12 charge. With the samples in hand, you’ll instantly be able to see the real product in person, versus a swatch on a screen or  in a catalogue. Order your samples here to see a range of colours – we’ll even send you some others we think you’ll like if you don’t choose the full amount.
