Are fitted wardrobes old fashioned?

Wardrobe 061

We are always surprised when someone calls a fitted wardrobe ‘old fashioned’. Although there is a trend for freestanding wardrobes, fitted wardrobes have so many advantages over their stand-alone counterparts. Let us explain why built-in wardrobes are an essential feature in any 21st century home!

Lots of space

The main benefit of fitted wardrobes is the huge amount of storage space they provide. Your bespoke fitted wardrobe can be customised to make full use of the available space in the room. Also, a fitted wardrobe can be designed to fit to the full height of the room.  This means you don’t have to resort to storing your belongings on top of the wardrobe (which gathers dust and makes the room look cluttered).

Modern styles

If you don’t like the look of the built-in wardrobes in your home, you may be tempted to remove them. But before you replace them with a freestanding unit, consider replacing them with a new style of fitted wardrobe. There are so many options to choose from! Mirror panels on a fitted sliding wardrobe gives a light, spacious and contemporary feel to a room.

Future Proof your fitted wardrobe

Fitted wardrobes are a long-term investment. Decide upon a colour and style that will look great even decades in the future. We find neutral colours and simple styles are the best way to keep your wardrobes looking classic, even as trends come and go.
