How to choose between sliding wardrobes over hinged door wardrobes

Click '50% MORE' to find out HOW Fitted Furniture ALWAYS gives you more storage space.


At Custom World all of our wardrobes, whether sliding or hinged are built floor to ceiling and, where appropriate, can in most circumstances be wall to wall. Both types of wardrobe are also built without backs or sides so that you maximise the storage space available. However, some customers prefer to have backs and sides in their wardrobes, so we cater for this too.

Both our sliding wardrobes and hinged wardrobes are made-to-measure, so can fit almost any space. With both wardrobe options, you can choose from a number of interior storage options to accessorise with, including; long and short hanging, tie-racks, shoe-racks, trouser rails, draws, shelves and more.

* These depths can be increased where you want a deeper wardrobe, or equally reduced where the room space is limited, however, subject to how wide your clothes are on hangers, then if the depth is reduced by a larger amount then the hanging may have to be changed to be from back to front. However, all our furniture is totally bespoke so can be made to almost any size, within reason.
