How to buy the right wardrobe

Follow our expert guide to finding the right wardrobe for you

Freestanding wardrobes

* Freestanding wardrobes offer the most versatility in terms of cost and design, and can be taken with you when you move house. Consider where you will be putting it, then measure the space, taking into consideration skirting boards and radiator pipes if you’re fitting it into an alcove.

* Consider wardrobes with drawers at the bottom or up the side for storing extra bedding or jumpers, and don’t forget that you can utilise the top of the wardrobe with decorative storage boxes for a pretty display.

* There’s a good choice of styles available from painted armoire-style wardrobes for period homes to sleek, dark wood designs for more contemporary schemes.
