5 Advantages of Fitted Wardrobes In Your Home

While building or remodeling a home, one of the many questions comes down to whether to go for a fitted wardrobe or a freestanding wardrobe within the bedroom or any other room in the home. Although freestanding wardrobes have their advantages in terms of planning and convenience, the homeowner is often compromising on storage or appearance in order to achieve what is best available to suit their needs. However, with a fitted or bespoke wardrobe, one can easily customize and arrive at a solution to best suit their needs and preferences within the home. Here are some advantages to having your own fitted wardrobe in your space.


Custom-fit, Custom-made: Unlike free-standing wardrobes, fitted wardrobes are customized to the space and storage requirements. Depending on the items and preferences, one can easily customize the storage inside the wardrobe. For example the wardrobe can include the required hanging and pull-outs to fit all the necessary items. In fact, if two people are sharing a wardrobe, such as a married couple, then both sides of the wardrobe can be designed to best suit individual tastes and needs. With a freestanding wardrobe, one has to work with what is available and there is no room for customization.

Freestanding wardrobes can either be too large that they look extremely awkward, or too small leaving significant unused space within a room. However, a fitted wardrobe eliminates the awkward spaces by placing the perfect size for the the designated space.

In fact, lighting is one of the most overlooked factors of a wardrobe design, and is often not included within a freestanding wardrobe, where one will have to rely on external lighting to illuminate the wardrobe items. However, a built-in or fitted wardrobe allows the user to customize where and when they need the lighting in their space to see fully see their items.
