Frequently Asked Questions about Shaker-Style Wardrobes
How do you make Shaker wardrobe doors?
In addition to ensuring we only work with timber and materials in compliance with the highest forestry and sustainability standards, our craftspeople select materials with exceptional durability. Our meticulous approach to cabinetry ensures your Shaker-style built-in wardrobes and wardrobe doors remain stable and flawless year after year, with a 10-Year Product and Workmanship Guarantee.
How do you convert plain cabinets into the Shaker style?
Shaker-style wardrobe doors are distinguished by their simplicity, square frames and classical proportions. Converting plain cabinets into the Shaker style requires exceptional workmanship, a core principle of the Shaker design. However, cabinets and wardrobes that are converted into this style often lack the quality and solidity of artisanally-made bespoke Shaker wardrobes. To embrace timeless, built-to-last Shaker design in your bedroom and beyond, contact our team of design experts today.
How much are fitted wardrobes in the UK?
The cost of fitted wardrobes can vary widely. There are many factors to consider when determining costs, including the length and size of the fitted wardrobe and whether you choose a bespoke design or not. The quality of the materials you select and the custom features you incorporate will also impact the cost of a built-in wardrobe. Our bespoke fitted wardrobe cost between £2,500 and £3,000 per linear metre; this includes cabinetry, handles, delivery and installation.
Should you choose a fitted or freestanding bedroom wardrobe?
If you are looking for a long-term solution, we recommend a fitted wardrobe. Our Shaker-style fitted wardrobes make the most of every corner of our clients’ homes, providing beautifully integrated storage that is built to last and designed around their lives. Alternatively, freestanding wardrobes are often a good choice for those seeking short-term storage solutions or those who often change the look and feel of their interiors.
