Modern demands on society on storage and space pressures having a fitted built in wardrobe is becoming an ever more increasingly popular choice amongst home owners. However, with the recession and financial pressures post Brexit coming on us that are seeming to be endless, budgeting on redecorating and refurbishing our beloved homes is seeming to be in the essence.
Firstly, let’s get this clear – some of us may consider a fitted wardrobe as just another wardrobe – it is not. Traditional wardrobes are essentially made with the one idea – storing clothes. Fitted wardrobes however, take into consideration much more than just that – not only do they utilise all available space extremely well, they provide storage solutions for a much more diverse range of property and items (jewellery, ties, belts, shoes, paperwork, make up etc.)
Conflicting to the popular conviction that fitting your bedroom with a modern and made to measure wardrobe would be particularly expensive – it is not (well at least it does not have to be). There are some steps you can follow to significantly reduce the price you are expected to pay in having a beautiful fitted wardrobe designed and installed in your home.
How? Well here are a couple steps you can follow:
Utilise the Internet – Ask the Experts
The internet, is an amazing thing – ask it the right questions. Compare the prices offered, compare the market. Get quotes and work with them. There are fitted wardrobe companies out there who can beat quotes for you. Get a quote or two from a reputable companies like i.e. Sharps or Hammonds for the fitted wardrobe you like – and take it to another company like to see if they can beat it. A company like Bravo London is great for this – they are able to offer amazing bespoke fitted wardrobes and storage solutions for a fraction of the price of some of the big boy companies. As far as your comparisons go, (a word of caution) – avoid the cowboys – do your research, look at their portfolio and past works – you don’t want bodge job specialists to come in and build you a crappy wardrobe.
You have Options – Use materials wisely:
You will also be surprised on how many options there are available with your fitted wardrobe – certain materials used can increase and reduce prices by up to 40%. Think about it! Do you really need the most expensive materials used on the inside of your wardrobe? Can you get away with using some cheaper internal materials but still have a 10/10 looking wardrobe? YES! YES you can! That’s all depends on the doors you use! Installing Sliding Wardrobe doorscan do a lot – they can completely transform the appearance of a wardrobe and your room! I would not compromise on this and would in fact say you should make sure you get the best Sliding Doors possible – that’s what you will see, open/close every day and that’s what will make all the difference when it comes to appearance.
Being on a tight budget, does not mean you should forget about making your home the way you want it to be! If you finances are tight – it is worth remembering that a fitted wardrobe should be treated as an investment. And any investment you make on fixing up your home (especially regarding bedrooms storage) will have a positive effect of the value of your home, and your homes saleability.
