Fitted Wardrobes vs Freestanding Wardrobes

Posted by formed on 31 October 2016

Redecorating your bedroom can be a costly venture, especially when it comes to picking out brand new furniture for the room that you’ll likely live with for many years to come. A lot’s riding on you to make the right call for the needs of your room. One area of interest you should take great care not to overlook is the style of wardrobe you opt for. Fitted or freestanding, both have their own benefits you should be aware of.

Freestanding Wardrobes


One of the best things about a freestanding wardrobe is that it can be moved and placed somewhere else at will. You can rearrange your room if you feel like it, not being restrained to where the wardrobe is designed to fit. It can also be installed as part of a set of furniture, such as chests of drawers and bedside tables.

However, the amount of storage space these pieces of furniture may afford you may well be very limited. Likewise, they may also encroach on the space in your room as a whole, too. It can be difficult to create adequate floor space with a freestanding wardrobe, thus making your room feel cluttered and claustrophobic. There is an option that deals with this problem excellently.

Fitted Wardrobes

The advantage of fitted wardrobes is that they are designed bespoke to your room’s requirements and your aesthetic desires. Under-utilised spaces in nooks and crannies can be transformed into an outstanding wardrobe that solves floor and storage space issues in one fell swoop. To create even more storage solutions, drawers can also be fitted inside your bespoke wardrobe, exponentially increasing free space in your room.

Often enough, you may also be able to have a wardrobe fitted that capitalises on the unused space right up to your ceiling that a freestanding wardrobe simply won’t. Floor to ceiling designs also look majestic once installed, coordinating with your colour scheme to provide a seamless transition between wall and wardrobe.
