Every home improvement needs storage space. However, in some homes, the wardrobes might need more space to fit all the family’s clothes, shoes, and other accessories. Or you may love many of the home’s features, not be too excited about the wardrobe design, and may choose to change them to suit your needs. Whatever the reason, custom built-in wardrobes are the best option to get the wardrobes of your choice.

So, What Are Some Factors To Consider When Choosing The Best Custom Built-In Wardrobes?

Determine your needs 

Knowing how many items you have and what storage size you want will help you share your specific requirements with the designer.


Factor in the amount of space you have. Speak to your tradesman about the currently available options and what more areas you hope to have. It might mean creating additional space or redesigning what’s already in place.


Ask to see a design first before tearing down any boards. From there, you can discuss the types of finishes and wood available. Be sure to see samples to make the right choice.


When considering your wardrobe material and finish, be sure to ask what materials are available and what are advantages some have over others. Engage the builder as well; those with years of experience will be sure to advise you on ideal options in terms of durability, functionality, and cost.


Get a cost estimate for everything to know how much the materials and labour will cost to have a good idea of what you’ll spend to have your custom built-in wardrobes in place. You can buy and keep the materials until you can call the craftsman to build the cabinet. In this case, ask for a comprehensive list to stay within your budget.

Types of shelves 

Some options to consider are ventilated wireframes or shelves. These are affordable options and are easy and quick to install. They can be used all across the house, not only in wardrobes, and are ideal for small or narrow spaces. Another advantage is that they don’t bend under the weight, and you are assured that your items have good ventilation. Another option is having melamine, Formica, or laminated shelves. They are durable and are also an affordable option.

Keep In Mind The Following Facts When Choosing Custom Build In Wardrobes;

Functionality And Ability To Access Your Items 

Determine which areas to access easily and which are harder to reach. Also, think through how the doors open, mechanisms that allow for easy opening and closing of doors and shelves, and those that allow maximum accessibility.

Wardrobe Style 

Be sure to match your wardrobe with your overall home and room colour scheme to complement each other. This will give your home a more stylish and refined appearance. Read more about Wardrobes at FCI London.
