Whether you’re looking for a room to house your collection of elegant dresses, or you just need somewhere to stash your shoe collection, you’ve probably got a lot of questions about walk in wardrobes. You may be wondering if your room is big enough, how much furniture you need and if walk in wardrobe fittings will even fit into your overall house.

Luckily, we know a thing or two about wardrobes here at ScrewfixWardrobes, and we’ve compiled some answers to frequently asked questions from those looking to purchase walk in wardrobe fittings and furniture.

What are the best walk in wardrobe fittings for small spaces?

The idea of walk in wardrobes being reserved for huge, expansive spaces is simply not true. Getting creative is key to transforming smaller spaces, starting with choosing the right walk in wardrobe fittings.

Our walk in wardrobe fittings range from simple hanger bars to complex wardrobe storage kits, with a lot of sizes in between. When you’re working with a smaller space and larger fittings just aren’t practical, look to fit in a few smaller pieces of walk in wardrobe furniture instead. By choosing minimal, smaller sections, you can piece them together to fit the unique style of your space.

Think about the type of storage as well as size. For example, drawers and shelves can store more in a smaller area, whereas too many hangers may not be the best use of space. Certain exceptions exist however, such as this dual-level hanger fitting, which is economical on space.

How much walk in wardrobe furniture do I need?

This is a tough question to answer, simply because it’s so subjective. Every walk in wardrobe is a unique space, and yours should reflect your own style and choice. If a wide open area to sit down and your try shoes on as you get ready is important, then you’ll only want to fill the outside walls with furniture. If organisation is key and you need every item of clothing filed, packed away and out of sight, then you’ll need more complex, furniture fittings filling every inch of your room.

How much will walk in wardrobe fittings cost?

There really is a wide range of prices for walk in wardrobe fittings. Our products cater for every budget, and single pieces of walk-in wardrobe furniture start from as little as £70.50, ranging up to £898.

For those with bigger plans on a tighter budget, we recommend starting with a few smaller pieces and building up your room over time. After all, our walk in wardrobe pieces can be combined together in a number of ways, the only limit is your imagination and creativity.
