Once you have decided to opt for fitted wardrobes to be installed in your home, the next step is the installation itself. In this post, I’m going to have a look at the different possible options available, namely do-it-yourself or employing a professional. Hopefully, you’ll have a better idea on what to do after reading this.
Choosing to install a fitted wardrobe depends on a few factors. Firstly, how handy are you? What experience have you had in the past in terms of putting together furniture items? Another question to ask is how much time do you have that you can commit to such an undertaking?
Can You Manage The Installation Yourself?
Also, would anyone else be helping you or is this going to be a one-man (or one-woman) task? If you work full-time in another job and do this with one other person, and both of you don’t know much about the process, then don’t expect much results too soon. You’ll just be seeing weeks of unfinished material sitting around your bed.

One other factor is how customized do you need the fitted wardrobes to be? If your room is very unique in that there are unusual slopes and angles in the dimensions, then you may need fully customized wardrobes. If not, you can get pre-assembled wardrobes where you are only required to install into the room itself.
Ok, the other safer approach is to call in a professional. Yes, this is obviously the more costly option, but things are less likely to go wrong since these guys do this for a living. Note that I say, “less likely” rather than guarantee that there won’t be disastrous errors. This is where you need to be wary when you pick someone to do the construction and installation. There are few things to keep in mind when looking for a pro.
Get A Clear Price
When speaking with them, request for a clear price guide. If they refuse this, then ask them why. This is should transparent.
Also, ask them what kind of experiences have they had with rooms of different dimensions and shape; ask them to show you photos (or brochures) of these works. The idea here is to get a good idea of the quality of their workmanship and whether they would be able to handle your particular room circumstance.
Make Sure They Can Do The Job Well
Try to gauge how they respond to you during your conversations with the potential installer. Here, you want to know what the customer service is like. In similar fashion to any other service company, they should be approachable and willing to listen. The communication is important since you’ll be providing specifications on the fitted wardrobe.
