Our Measuring Guide
Measuring for your new wardrobe is simple, requires only a tape measure and takes just a few minutes. It is really important that the steps below are followed to ensure everything is considered and the right measurements are taken.
You need to decide on where your wardrobe will be built. Your wardrobe can either be placed:
On any side where there is no wall, we will supply you with an end panel as part of your order.
Now you should check that that you have a clear depth of at least 56cm from the back wall to the front of where the wardrobe will be positioned, making sure there are no radiators, windows, fireplaces or doors in the wardrobe space.
When measuring the wardrobe opening, please ignore any skirting boards, dado rails, picture rails or cornices and simply measure from ceiling to floor and from the outer left hand edge of the opening to the outer right hand edge of the opening.
You should now consider what floor finish you have and whether the bottom track will be fixed directly to the floor finish or whether the floor finish will be removed. If you plan to remove the floor finish prior to fitting the bottom track, please allow for this when you take your opening height measurements.
Now you can measure the width of the opening in 3 places, the bottom near the floor, the middle and the top near the ceiling. Make a note of the largest width of the 3 measurements taken.
You can now measure the height of the opening in 3 places from the ceiling to the floor surface the bottom track will be fitted to. You should measure the left hand side, the middle and the right hand side of the opening and make a note of the smallest height of the 3 measurements taken.
