How much did your fitted wardrobe cost?
45

Beurre · 14/12/2021 23:39

I've been quoted £4500 for a 3m fitted wardrobe, shaker style with a mix of drawers, shoe rack etc. Is that pricey? Have no idea about what to expect in terms of costs but my DP seems to think it's too expensive. Would appreciate any advice or local firms you would recommend - we're in London. Thank you.

I can't help with that, but it would be cheaper to buy ikea doors and have them fitted.

I got a quote from B&Q for their new system - was going to be 1.2K for 2m wide with drawers, fittings etc. Would need to pay for fitting on top of that.

When I went to ikea they were out of stock for the Pax system until the new year - although that might have changed recently.

I suggest you click on the Pax Planner and see how much it would cost to buy from Ikea. They are very good :)

Thank you everyone for responding, will get quotes from other places.

@WutheringHeights66, that's incredibly cheap. I wonder if they would cover London?

No unfortunately not, they are a family business in West Yorkshire, so I know it doesn’t help but I guess London would be a third more expensive perhaps for the same?

£5k
Full height to ceiling
1 x double wardrobe with internal chest of drawers (5)
1 x corner wardrobe with double hanging
1 x double wardrobe with shelving
2 x half height cupboards with shelving (used for shoes)
1 x bedside table (it's large with 3 drawers)

I thought it was extortionate but was some of the best money we ever spent as we are short of storage space. We still have room to spare in them.

@WutheringHeights66 - costs in London are extortionate but will see if I can get a decent deal.

@daisyducky - £5k seems incredibly cheap for all the works you've had done. I'm assuming you're not in London?

@Blankscreen - thanks for sharing your wardrobe picture, it looks really nice and elegant.

Yes, the quotes we had were all over £4k even when we were compromising on design - fewer drawers than ideal, sliding doors rather than hinged ones etc. It felt like a bit of a racket to me, when I'd just done an entire kitchen for a similar price.

Instead we got a carpenter to custom fit pax to look fully built in, with custom doors. We love the result and we saved thousands, but it was a tonne of work to paint.

I am London.

I actually chose the most expensive finish. So I asked them to cost up again with a cheaper style and it was £4K so I was right let's just go with it for the extra £1k when you're spending that much.

The only thing I don't like is the sales pitch, the guy who came round for the initial discussions drew it all up and we got a significant discount if we placed the order that day. I was 7 months pregnant and in the middle of this my toddler was violently sick.

We just placed it as there was a way out but I found that side all stressful.

Have you got a quote from a company like Sharps or a carpenter ? Carpenter should be cheaper. We used JV Carpentry (5 years ago but price for 2 large fitted wardrobes including drawers and in a room with high ceilings was under £2k). They are London based.

3m is a lot so that actually sounds quite reasonable to me. We have about 4-5m, sloped for loft, drawers, hanging etc and an exposed shelving unit. Plus because of width issues we have 14 doors! and two additional shelving spaces. We had it done by a carpenter friend who we paid what he would have been paid by a built-in cupboard company but we only paid cost for materials.

And we paid about £5500 from memory.

I would add that if you CAN find the money, do it. Ours not only offer so much storage, they really make our bedroom look fantastic and I absolutely love them.

@niki26 - stunning wardrobe.

@Fleemeister - the Pax range seems decent but seems like a bit of work to paint and I quite like having solid wood wardrobes.

@daisyducky - thank you. Have just been in touch with this company and will get them round soon for a quote.

@TheLette - thank you, will definitely be contacting JV Carpentry. The quote I have is from a local carpenter who seems to think he offers the best price.

@BlingLoving - I bet your loft looks great. I've always wanted fitted wardrobes due to the space saving and can't wait.

Joinery company in the north of England, just made fitted built in wardrobes for a residential client consisting
1 double wardrobe with shelves
2 double wardrobes with internal bank of five drawers and hanging rail in each
3 top cupboards
Top and bottom plinths
All professionally sprayed in the shop

Fitted was about £5k

The cost is normally down to the design (ie labour intensity) and the level of finish eg soft close runners, ironmongery. Materials have gone through the roof over the last year so you can't really compare with older prices.

It is worth paying a little more for the quality, especially if it is a long term investment.

We got a similar quote from Sharps (London) for similar size fitted wardrobe. I thought it was extortionate! No slanting ceiling or anything odd-shaped. Just ended up getting standing wardrobes from Ikea, and if I win the lottery one day I'll replace them with a fitted one.

£3500 from Sharpes for about 3m (in Scotland) but basic interiors - mostly hanging and shelves. The 3 drawers we did put in bumped the price up quite a bit. They look amazing but am currently pricing up Pax and will get a joiner to install for the next room we're doing. Currently looking like under £400 for similar internals and then there would be doors on top of that but significantly less than Sharpes and looks very similar.

£1700 from a local carpenter.

I had two fitted either side of an old blocked fireplace, fairly wide - about 1.2m each. One with rails (x3), 2 shirt rails and 1 dress rail. 1 shoe shelf. Then the second was fitted with 6 adjustable shelves. They made a faux skirting to match the existing room skirting. I had a large cabinet on top of each wardrobe, so it's full height of the room.
I also got them to add a mantel piece shelf above the old fireplace, and a shelf inside the old fireplace (which was refinished and blocked).
They did some routing, I think it's called, to make it all look nice and fit the period (30s).
I did all the painting myself, which brought the quote down, and why it's so much less than others quoted here!
I think I also fitted the knobs myself after, after I painted, and we agreed that (carpenter is a friend).
I also got another local company to cut and install mirrors on the doors, so that was an extra £150 (I don't know how they do these prices!).

I agreed for it to be done in between other jobs and on weekends, I wasn't in a rush, and that helped with the price.

So that's how I got the price down for what I got.

A lot of companies were charging £4k + without the mirrors and additional mantel piece shelving etc.

I also opted not to have a box shell - some carpenters will insist on using a shell if the walls aren't perfectly straight but mine uses the walls inside, so loads less material was used.

The cost of materials has gone up a LOT the last few months! I know the same job now would cost £2k+ due to the wood, even though I insisted on no box shell/frame. It means more templating and squaring up so not a job for someone inexperienced.

We are spending £8K+ with Sharps and there's a 4 month wait for the install. We tried to get quotes from local joiners but mainly they've got waiting lists and made excuses not to come and quote. In the end we thought Sharps were the safer bet. Wood prices have shot up and one guy who did some other work for us said he has dropped away from making bespoke wardrobes for now as the quotes he is doing are eye watering. He said until he invests in computer aided cutting and design, it isn't cost effective to make.
