Fitted Wardrobes vs Built In Wardrobes - Is there a difference?
What’s the difference between a fitted wardrobe and built in wardrobe is quite a common question. Put simply, there is no difference. Both common terms, fitted wardrobes and built in wardrobes both mean the same thing. There are thousands of searches each month for these terms, as people look to get a new fitted wardrobe. Behind it all, people really are looking for a bespoke storage solution that is going to suit their exact needs, as opposed to a freestanding wardrobe that may not be making the most of the available space. ‘Fitted’ and ‘Built In’ are both space saving terms that suggest a custom product is needed.
When people are on the search for a fitted wardrobe or a built in wardrobe, typically the reasons behind these terms are the same. Built in wardrobes suggest that it needs to feel like part of the space. A built in look, will make a wardrobe look like it is integrated in to the room and fitting with the overall design of the space. Fitted wardrobes are essentially the same, but this term may be used more liberally when describing a wardrobe that is designed to fit a space exactly so there is no wasted space.
Whilst both the terms fitted wardrobes and built in wardrobes mean the same, generally it’s about making the most of the available space. Having a fitted wardrobe is a great way to make the most of the storage potential in your bedroom. Having a wardrobe built in to the space can also be a very effective solution for sloped ceilings, around old fireplaces and any other awkward or non-standard space.
