L Shaped Wardrobes
All of our wardrobes make the best use of spare space to give much needed storage and are designed to be adaptable and flexible so they can be easily customised and fitted depending on your needs. It is relatively simple and straightforward to create, order and install an L-shaped wardrobe once you know what to do.
We regularly get asked if we sell L-shaped fitted wardrobes to fit into the corner of customers rooms and because L-shaped wardrobes are made from two wardrobes, the answer is always yes! We understand that rooms can often have a spare corner and that it is desirable to have sliding doors in any part of a room considered spare, however there are a few things to check before ordering your new corner sliding wardrobe.
Tips for creating and ordering your new L-shaped wardrobe,
- STEP 1 – Measure the space from the end of the wardrobe to the corner on each side and ensure it is at least 140cm on each side. Any less than this will mean the access and doors on each side will be very small.
- STEP 2 – First consider if the L-shaped wardrobe will run from a wall or end panel on each side. This means it will either be wall-corner-wall, wall-corner-end panel, end panel-corner-wall or end panel-corner-end panel.
- STEP 3 – You need to deduct 56cm – 61cm from the opening width of 1 side to accommodate the depth of the other side of the wardrobe and then deduct the same less 18mm for the other side. For example, if your measurement from the wall to the corner to the wall is 2000mm and 3000mm, you could use an opening width of 1390mm and 2408mm.
- STEP 4 Create 2 wardrobes at the new reduced width using our 3D design tool, both with casing all sides. One will need to have the corner side set as an end panel and the other one will need the corner side set as a wall. The opposite side for both is to be set as either end panel or wall as per step 1.
If choosing internals, please remember one will have to be 61cm longer than the opening widths used which means if your opening width is between 219cm and 280cm, please contact us to find out more.
If in any doubt contact us, we are here to help and will guide you through what you need.
