Why pay for installation costs if you don’t have to

It’s never been easier to find a fitted furniture supplier online so when it comes to choosing new bedroom wardrobes you are spoilt for choice. But as anyone who’s already started searching for the perfect fitted wardrobe can tell you, there is a big difference in service that you need to look out for.

Does the manufacturer charge you for installation or are their wardrobes designed for easy home installation? This difference in service is significant; as installation costs can drive up the price of your new fitted bedroom furniture significantly!

The great news is that you no longer have to go to expensive leading brands for quality, as companies like Slide Wardrobes Direct are meeting the demand for high quality furniture that is expertly designed for easy ‘do it yourself’ home installation. This flexible self assembly service not only keeps costs down for the customer, but makes it easy for everyone to install high-quality, bespoke bedroom furniture.

Not convinced self assembly fitted wardrobes are for you?

Not everyone is convinced by DIY or self assembly projects. This may be due to difficult DIY experiences in the past or as a result of the commonly heard myths that surround ‘do it yourself’ furniture. So here we’re going to bust these myths and show you why self assembly fitted wardrobes are the right choice for you!

❌ Myth: DIY installations are more expensive in the long run
✅ Truth: DIY fitted wardrobes are a financially savvy choice!

Why do people choose DIY? Simply, it’s cheaper. And when it comes to fitted furniture it’s no different. If you don’t have to pay the manufacturer for the labour costs of installing your new wardrobe then the total cost of your new fitted furniture will be significantly cheaper. This is why DIY fitted wardrobes are the perfect solution. They make bespoke wardrobes affordable without compromising on quality.

But if you choose the wrong manufacturer, this might not be the case. Poor quality materials, difficult constructions and a lack of customer support could easily affect the success of your installation and end up costing you more in the long run. So when you’re choosing a wardrobe manufacturer you should look for an experienced company like Slide Wardrobes Direct who provide the following services:

➡  An online designer that visualises your bespoke wardrobe doors with an instant quote
➡  A customer support line to answer any questions you might have during the ordering or installation process
➡  Detailed installation instructions included with every order
➡  On-site manufacturing to ensure quality control is in place.


❌ Myth: You need to be an expert to get good results
✅ Truth: Anyone can install fitted wardrobes with the right manufacturer!

We make sure that every customer gets everything they need for an easy home assembly so you don’t need an expert to do it for you! Once you’ve designed your new sliding wardrobe doors using our simple online tool, we will manufacture your doors to your exact specification and deliver them directly to you as part of a complete wardrobe kit.
