1. The benefits of wall-mounted wardrobes
Built-in wardrobes are wardrobes that are attached to the wall. In addition to being a practical long-term investment, modern wardrobes can also increase the value of your home if you decide to sell. Your wardrobe will be more durable if you choose high-quality, long-lasting materials.
Fitted wardrobes are the best choice for fully maximising your storage space, but people often underestimate how beneficial they can actually be. Any room shape or size can be fitted with a bespoke wardrobe, regardless of the layout. The spaces below the stairs, L-shaped nooks, and alcoves suddenly become useful.
Custom wardrobes also offer the advantage of participating in the design process. You have full control over the wardrobe material, the door finish, the type of door handles, and the layout of the interior storage units like shelves and hanging rails.
Additionally, you can control how much you spend.

Putting a wardrobe up on the wall
Having knowledge of how to fix a wardrobe to a wall is useful, although in the case of fitted wardrobes, this is not something you will have to do by yourself. Installation teams from our company are highly skilled and will have all the necessary tools to complete the job. Prior to the work beginning, they will visit the site in advance to be aware of any corners that might need to be moved or electrical outlets that may need to be moved.
Check whether the wall is brick or stud to determine its type. As a rule, brick walls are outside walls or supporting walls, while stud walls are interior walls that sound hollow when tapped. Before your wardrobe is fixed to a brick wall, our crew will also use spirit levels to ensure it is level.
3. In what place should you put your wardrobe?
It’s crucial to decide where to place your new modern wardrobe before you begin designing it. In most cases, it is made to fit flush between two walls. Alternatively, you may like a wardrobe flush to the left or right wall with the opposite end open.
The centred wardrobe option is another option. Any room attributes that may hinder installation should be noted, such as radiators, doors, window ledges, and electrical outlets.
It’s important to also consider the light in your room if you’re planning to have mirror doors, because the reflections can create an uncomfortable glare.
3. What are the safety precautions when drilling into a wall?
Many factors can make drilling through a wall risky. A gas pipe or water pipe may be encountered as well as an electrical cable.
Drilling close to or behind an electric outlet requires taking into account the way the wires are connected to avoid accidental electrocution. A drill bit can cause flooding if you drill into a plumbing pipe. As a general rule, avoid drilling near potential electrical connections or piping.
As part of the wardrobe design and planning process, our very experienced wardrobe team will fully consider all of these potential risks. The installation will be smooth and hassle-free because your space will have been inspected and optimized before the installer arrives.
Rest assured that our installation team can handle any unexpected situation, long before it causes a disaster.
