Don't get them. We bought a cheap wardrobe (not from argos) and has been a disaster since we got it. We are hoping to replace it soon. A friend also did the same and hers have fallen apart too. Better to get a second hand more solid one imo. Do you have a local community furniture store? They often have good quality furniture that has been donated.
I just looked in my catalogue, it says the Aviemore comes as solid pine or white finish - deesn't really tell you much about the white on does it. If they are anything like Ikea ones I would suspect that the doors will be wood, the sides fibreboard and the backs thin board.
I'd be interested to know the quality as I am going to have to get a flatpack wardrobe as our stairs are too narrow to get a solid one up.
thanks for your replies, have tried freecycle, gumtree, ebay, local paper etc. to no avail no second hand furniture shops here. hmmm i take on board what you say about them being crap, we had a bed from argos that was utter shite, but i'm running out of options.
does anyone know of anywhere that does cheap wardrobes?n pred white as our room is tiny and wood is too dark and looming
The Ikea ones we have do seem to be much better quality than the other ones we got (from memory they were from additions direct) They were not white, but generally I think their cheaper stuff is often better quality than other cheaper stuff iyswim. I am not explaining it very well. Have you tried a local ad on <whispers> netmums they do have a good buying and selling section.
<slinks away before MNHQ see this and throw me off for suggesting the 'other side'>
we've had argos wardrobes and generally been okay, although we have a sliding doors one from them @ the moment which is pretty rubbish... as mentioned above probably a combination of wood and chipboard
