Fitted Wardrobes vs Freestanding Furniture

Do you often find yourself wishing for more storage, as you yet again cram too many clothes in your wardrobe? We’ve all been there. 

If you’re thinking of upgrading your furniture, you might be considering a larger free-standing wardrobe or a fitted wardrobe. To help make this decision pain-free, we’ve put together the benefits of each.

Freestanding Wardrobes

Freestanding wardrobes are the classic common choice for many people when it comes to purchasing new furniture and it is easy to see why, as they can often be picked up easily and for very low cost or even from second-hand shops! 

You can match them with your other furniture such as a chest of drawers or dressing tables to create your own personal aesthetic. 

However, perhaps the biggest selling point is you can move them if you get the bedroom to rearrange bug and you can take them with you if you move house, which makes them a worthwhile purchase.

Fitted Wardrobes and Furniture 

So with that in mind, why would you consider fitted furniture and what are the benefits?

There is one core problem with free standing furniture which is the main reason you will find people seeking bespoke fitted wardrobes and that is space. 

Space Saving Furniture

Despite your best efforts, free standing wardrobes take up an obscene amount of floor space and can often make rooms feel cluttered and claustrophobic, whereas fitted wardrobes make the most of every nook and cranny to ensure no space is wasted and you get the most out of your room. 

Awkward Space Storage Solution

Alongside this, fitted wardrobes are perfect for those with awkward spaces, such as slanted ceilings, which make standard furniture near on impossible to have. With fitted wardrobes many designs are floor to ceiling, meaning those extra few feet you lose above your average wardrobe, as it is built bespoke to you and the available space to make sure you get the most out of it.


Having a fitted wardrobe installed is an investment, which you will see the benefits of should you decide to sell your home, as storage and space saving is a core selling point for many buyers, especially in smaller homes. 

Personalised and Bespoke Fitted Furniture

One of the key benefits of fitted furniture is how customisable it is, you can choose everything, from the inside solutions such as different shelving, drawer and hanging options, through to the style of door, materials, handles and more. Every part of the design will be based on your unique taste and current home aesthetic.
