What are Fitted Wardrobes?

Optima Bedroom

Storage space is like gold dust to home buyers and investing in fitted wardrobes can actually increase the value of your home. A fitted wardrobe is made to measure, meaning it fits perfectly in the space you have available. This maximises your storage space and eliminates the unclean aesthetics as well as gaps that are created with free standing wardrobes.

Bespoke fitted wardrobes are a luxurious alternative to free standing wardrobes. Available in a huge range of styles and finishes, they’re often tailor-made to blend with your home decor, meaning you can stylishly utilise every inch of space.

Where can fitted wardrobes be installed?

Fitted wardrobes can be installed in almost any room in the house, even in obscure places like around beds, around chimneys, under the stairs and into alcoves. Below are a few excellent examples of some wardrobes installed by Strachan Furniture…
