We’ve all been there: we’ve found the perfect wardrobe that complements our room, and all that’s left to do is fit it. But how difficult is this to do yourself? If you’re wondering how to build a wardrobe, this guide will show you just how easy it is to install our products at home.

If you find yourself needing the help of an expert when building a fitted wardrobe, we’re always happy to speak on the phone, however we’re confident you’ll find the all the help you need online. Here’s why:

Measuring up for our fitted wardrobes is simple

Preparing and measuring your room should be done before purchasing your wardrobe. By being prepared this way, you’ll be absolutely certain that your wardrobe will fit your space. Measuring up is simple, in fact, we’ve created a measuring guide to help you get it right the first time.

In the guide, you’ll find information on which measurements to take, how much room our products can accommodate and how you can use a height reducer to correct larger spaces.

The main thing to bear in mind when measuring a space is that you’ll be dealing with the aperture size, not the door size. This means you’ll be measuring the space that the doors will fit into, which will be naturally larger than the doors, as you’ll be installing liners as well. The good news is that our software will automatically account for this, giving you the correct measurements for your doors. The only exception to this rule is if you’re planning to install your own liners, or batons to level up the aperture. In this case, measure the space with your installed sections in place.
