The Cost of Fitted Wardrobes

Tuesday 06th September 2016

Installing your own bespoke wardrobe is an exciting prospect. However, when considering fitting made-to-measure sliding doors, are you put off because you believe a bespoke solution might prove too costly? In actual fact, sliding wardrobe doors shouldn’t break the bank, as long as you are prepared for any associated costs.

Let us take you through the potential extra elements you may come across, allowing you to plan ahead, and acquire the wardrobe of your dreams without any nasty surprises along the way.



How Much do Fitted Wardrobes Cost?

There are a handful of companies that offer sliding door fitted wardrobes, but more often than not you are given a fixed price that you can’t negotiate. Quotes from other suppliers can start from £1,500 for standard wood finish wardrobes and reach anywhere up to £5,000 or above for premium finishes, not accounting for the cost of added extras. This often means paying out more money for interiors and extra features you are likely to need.

Our pre-designed sliding door fitted wardrobes range in price, starting from just £376. But you can use our design your own fitted wardrobe feature to get the wardrobe you want and avoid any hidden costs. Our online configuration tool allows you to tailor the cost of fitted wardrobes to your needs. You can see our full range of sliding doors in various colours, materials and finishes; and see the price tallied up right then and there. It also gives you the option to pick your wardrobe interiors such as tower units or hanging bars for your wardrobe, with prices starting from just £7.50.

Hiring Installers

It can be quite daunting to receive your sliding doors and realise that you have to fit them yourself. Many brands do not offer any help or advice to install their wardrobes, leaving the consumer to hunt for professional installation services, ranging from £100 to £1,200, depending on width, length and style.

While we’re happy to provide professional installation, we pride ourselves on our easy-to-install storage solutions. Our aim is to reduce the cost of fitted wardrobes for our customers with in-home design visits from a professional who can measure up your space and ensure your wardrobe doors will fit perfectly, thus streamlining the DIY process.

Once you’ve chosen your wardrobes, we have plenty of ‘How-to’ installation videos and step-by-step guides to help with preparation, measuring and installation.

Delivery and Removal

Delivery can often be a major cost consideration for large storage solutions. At Spaceslide, we want to make delivery as simple for our customers as possible. We often run free delivery promotions. Regardless, our prices include having your wardrobes delivered to the room of your choice. We can also help you remove your old wardrobe or advise on access restrictions. There may be additional costs for this, but we’ll always be upfront with prices.

Whatever you decide to do, being aware of the pitfalls can make the whole process a lot easier. 

 Managing the Cost of Fitted Wardrobes

A final tip, why not write a list of the exact requirements and features you want your wardrobe to have, as well as all the questions you need answering? That way you won’t get tripped up and will have a clear idea of the costs involved.
