Fitted wardrobes are bespoke designed to fit in your specific bedroom space.
From grand walk-in wardrobes to convenient space-saving designs that make the most out of every inch of your room, fitted wardrobes serve both aesthetic and practical purposes.
Fitted wardrobes don’t have to be big and luxurious, though, the point is that they can be fitted into any interior space, big or small.
Buying a fitted wardrobe can be quite a confusing process and there are several ways to go about it.
This article will cover what you can expect to pay for fitted wardrobes, factors that can affect the cost and other common questions around fitted wardrobes.
Bespoke/Fully-Fitted Wardrobe Average Price Guide
Bespoke or fully-fitted wardrobes include installation, but still cost more than their less bespoke semi-fitted counterparts.
Of course, you’re paying for the all-in-one service including design consultation. This also ensures that no mistakes are made during the measurement/design process.
The following prices compiled from 5 bespoke fitted wardrobes brands and 2 independent joiners include basic professional fitting.
Bear in mind that fitting costs can vary considerably, especially if extra work needs to be done. Your carpet/floor might need to be removed. Your room’s wallpaper may also need to be stripped.
|Type of Fitted Wardrobe||Budget||Mid-Range||High-End|
|2m Long With 2 Doors||£1,400||£1,900||£2,750|
|3m Long With 3 Doors||£2,750||£3,300||£4,400|
|4m Long With 3 Doors||£3,800||£4,400||£6,500|
Modular Wardrobe Average Price Guide
These quotes are compiled from 4 major modular/semi-fitted wardrobe suppliers. Prices include delivery but do not include installation costs.
Some suppliers offer their own partnered installation services (e.g. Spaceslide). Spaceslide charges a flat rate of £499 to install their wardrobes. Installation costs really depend on the size and complexity of the wardrobe.
Some installers may charge near enough £1,000 to install a large 4m wardrobe. Always check this carefully before committing as fitting costs have been known to come as a nasty surprise.
You might be able to find a carpenter or general tradesperson to fit a wardrobe for less than a specialist installer.
|Type of Modular Wardrobe||Budget||Mid-Range||High-End|
|2m Long With 2 Doors||£550||£650||£1,100|
|3m Long With 3 Doors||£850||£1,200||£2,000|
|4m Long With 3 Doors||£1,100||£1,650||£3,200|
Factors That Affect the Cost
There is considerable variation in the cost of fitted wardrobes.
Lower end models can cost a similar amount to high-end standing wardrobes, so around £750.
High-end fully fitted wardrobes will rarely, if ever, cost less than £2000 or so. High-end fitted walk-in wardrobes can easily cost in excess of £15,000.
Cost will vary based on:
- Design, e.g. drawers, rails, etc
- Doors, quantity and style; sliding or otherwise
- Door handles
- Materials, e.g. laminate, plastic, hardwood, oak, exotic hardwoods, metal, etc
- Interior design; lighting, details
- Bespoke features like safes or locked drawers
Different manufacturers/brands cost their wardrobes differently. Sometimes, you’ll see ‘cost per linear metre’ which means cost per metre length of wardrobe measured across the floor.
Wardrobes are often measured like this because bedroom heights are generally standardised throughout the UK.
Other brands might quote you by the number doors. Most brands have different ranges for varying budgets and styles, with optional extras and fittings (e.g. handles) adding to the cost.
Avoiding Hidden Costs
Make sure you keep checking your quote and be meticulous in studying what it does and doesn’t include.
If an all-in-one design and installation service are being offered then check with the designer to clarify what prep you’ll need to carry out prior to delivery.
You might be able to speed up the process (and reduce the cost) by doing some of the legwork yourself.
Hidden costs and issues might include rewiring plugs or radiators, painting, plastering and removing/relaying the flooring.
Make sure you check, double-check and triple-check every measurement if you’re purchasing a modular or semi-fitted wardrobe – mistakes can be catastrophic.
