How Do I Make a Fitted Wardrobe?

Answer

To make a fitted wardrobe, you need the following equipment. An electric screwdriver, a power drill, an electric plane, a jigsaw, hammer, tape measure and a pencil. Begin by building 4 ladder styles wooden struts. Place a shelf measuring 247 by 50 centimetres. Create 3 identical spaces for shelving and one for 2 hanging rails. Make 3 wooden slats, one at the back, two at the front, running the width of the structure to provide lateral support. Get various wooden slats providing horizontal support and keeping the supporting posts the same depth.

There are 3 types of fitted wardrobes, namely: full carcase, frame construction and sliding doors. Full carcase built in wardrobe is designed to have a base, top, two sides and a back panel, such that when you open the doors you see a fully lined interior. The construction of carcase furniture is such that wardrobes generally have levelling features - normally legs - under the floor of the carcass and the doors are hinged from the side panels. To achieve a fitted appearance the wardrobes are built to a height of between 2250mm and 2300mm and designed to be fill the ceiling with a top scribe known as filler panel. Frame construction: Frame furniture generally has a base (or floor) but no sides or backing panel, and can be constructed from floor to ceiling at any distance from the back wall (when you open the doors you see the back and side walls - however these wall can be lined if required).Depending on the manufacturer the doors are hinged either to the side of the frame, or to the front of the frame (the door then hides the hinge).The doors are generally made to two or three standard widths and heights and then fitted to form openings to the frame. The frame of the built in wardrobe is generally constructed on-site and is scribed to adjacent walls and the ceiling therefore alleviating the need for top and side scribing panels. Sliding door built in wardrobe: Fitted sliders are generally produced as a basic frame with no backing panel. The interiors are then made as carcase furniture. There is normally a 50mm gap between the doors and the interior sections to prevent clothes dragging when the doors are opened. If the doors are custom made the frame will be fitted floor to ceiling and wall to wall, alleviating the need for scribing panels - if not then you will have to accept standard door widths which are likely to overlap themselves by more than the standard, and fit using side & top scribing panels. Each door will be designed to overlap the others by about 30mm - any more than this makes access to the space behind the door overlap more difficult. Most people think of sliders are mirror doors only - but they are manufactured in a number of panel finishes as well - and can be used in conjunction with hinged door built in wardrobes
