Don’t Worry – It’s Easy!
Measuring your space is actually very easy to do. We have designed our system to be easily adjustable, so you don’t have to worry about messing up your dimensions.
With each order, we provide a set of trims that can be cut to size as required to finish off your design. This means that even if your measurements are a little off, you have plenty of margin for error.
On top of that – after you have placed your order, one of our designers will get in touch to go over everything in detail, ensuring that you are 100% happy with your order before we begin manufacture.
If your wardrobe is going to be full ceiling height, simply take your floor to ceiling measurement and take off 40mm to allow for the top trim that we will include with your order. The result is the total height that you should aim for when using our design tool. The total height will be shown on the left of the design drawing and will include any units and legs / spaces that you have included in your design.
If you want your wardrobes to be full ceiling height, we strongly recommend opting for adjustable legs in the Wardrobe Designer, particularly if the floor is carpeted. The adjustable legs give you plenty of room to adjust, so that you don’t have to worry if your measurements are slightly off. If you do not opt for adjustable legs – you must take extra care in the accuracy of your measurement.
If you have a single unit (as opposed to 2 or more units that stack on top of one another) intended to be full ceiling height, you will need to assemble the unit upright (as opposed to assembling it lying down and then pushing it upright).
If you want to fit your wardrobe snugly between two walls, measure the exact width of the space that you want to fill and subtract 80mm. This is the total width that you should aim for in your design.
The 80mm reduction is to allow 40mm on either side for the adjustable trim that we will include with your order. By adding this trim, you allow yourself up to 80mm adjustability. The trims can be cut to size as needed, so you don’t need to worry if your measurements are slightly off. We can provide smaller or larger trims as needed, so there is plenty of room to adjust to get the perfect fit.
It’s common for some homes to have slightly bowed walls. To ensure your design will fit neatly in your space, we recommend taking a measurement at the top, middle and bottom of the space. Use the smallest width measurement recorded (minus 80mm as above) in the Wardrobe Designer.
There are three measurements that we require in the Wardrobe Designer in order to produce an angled unit.
First, we need the minimum height, which is to say the height on the ‘shortest’ side. Next, we require the maximum height, which is the height on the tallest side – we would then need the width between these two points (this would be the “width” in the Wardrobe Designer).
It is worth noting that a unit in the Wardrobe Designer cannot have both a sloped and a level top, a unit is either sloped or rectangular. However, you can of course put a sloped unit next to a rectangular unit to make any combination that you need.
