How to buy the right wardrobe

Follow our expert guide to finding the right wardrobe for you

Fully fitted and walk-in wardrobes

* Fully fitted wardrobes offer the best storage options and can be designed to fit around awkward angles, sloping ceilings and uneven walls, making the most of any space. Even if the wardrobe is restricted to one wall, it will provide a generous amount of hanging and shelf space, however fitted wardrobes are a more expensive option than freestanding wardrobes and often need to be designed and fitted by an expert.

* Consider fitting sliding and bi-folding doors to save on floor space and a combination of glass doors and interior lighting can create an interesting atmosphere.

* If you are fortunate enough to have a large bedroom, or an L-shaped space, consider building a partition wall and creating a walk-in wardrobe with open shelving and rails. This a luxurious and expensive option, but will ensure your bedroom is a calm and clutter-free retreat.
