Fitted Wardrobes: The Right Fit?

Posted on July 16, 2009 by Admin


When considering the options for wardrobes, the major decision to be made is whether to choose a fitted wardrobe or a standalone pine wardrobe. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, but in the end it comes down to personal preference. There are many things to consider when deciding on what type of wardrobe to choose. Space, storage needs and cost are the top factors to take into account.

Fitted wardrobes can be rather elaborate or they can be simple, depending on the space available. If you have limited space, a simple two-door cabinet installed atop a drawer system will most likely be sufficient. If you have a larger space, however, you can incorporate a number of standing cabinets and drawer systems for a multitude of storage options.

The standalone wardrobe is a better fit for small spaces. If your room just does not have the space or design conducive to built-ins, a standalone may be the answer. It takes up less space and can be moved around if necessary.

Consider your storage needs. What is the major purpose of the wardrobe? Is it to augment an already existing closet space or is it the primary space needed for storage? This will dictate the size needed. If you simply need a little extra storage for clothing, a standalone wardrobe will most likely be all that you need. If you lack storage space altogether, then fitted wardrobes can offer up the storage you need.

Cost can be a drawback to fitted wardrobes. You will want to have them installed by a professional or purchase pre-assembled components to install yourself. Either way, the cost can quickly add up. On the contrary, a standalone wardrobe can be purchased rather inexpensively. Standalone Pine wardrobes offer solid construction at a reasonable price and are available in many different styles.

Before walk-in closets burst onto the scene, homes were not equipped with very large spaces for storing clothing. Enter the fitted wardrobe. Highly functional and smartly designed, fitted wardrobes offer a wide selection of storage options while maximizing space. Custom-built fitted wardrobes answer the call for those lacking the modern luxury of a walk-in closet. They create a space that is very organized and structured, while offering a very stylish finish to a room.

Standalone wardrobes are versatile in style, size and function. If you have limited space, they can offer the storage you need while taking up a minimum of space. They are available in a wide selection of styles to fit any storage need, large or small. If you require space for hanging clothing along with drawer space, you can choose a three-door wardrobe that employs both.

Fitted wardrobes can create a wonderfully functional space in a bedroom where space is at a premium. For smaller spaces, the standalone wardrobe brings in an added touch of character and versatile functionality. Depending on your storage needs, the right fit can be achieved, whether it is standalone or fitted into your room.
