Are you planning to add new sliding doors to your wardrobe? Whether you are renovating your bedroom or simply looking for more storage space, measuring your wardrobe is the first and most important step. In this article, we will guide you on how to measure your wardrobe space accurately, which will ensure that your new sliding doors fit perfectly and maximise your storage space.
Why Measure Wardrobe Space?
Before we start measuring, it's essential to understand why measuring your wardrobe space is important. Measuring your wardrobe ensures that you can select the correct size of fittings to maximise the storage space you have available. Without accurate measurements, you risk purchasing wardrobe doors that are either too big or too small, which can lead to wasted space or an inefficient use of space.
Steps for Measuring Wardrobe Space
Measuring your wardrobe space is a simple process that involves measuring the width, height, and depth of your wardrobe. Follow these steps to measure your wardrobe space accurately:
Remove all clothing and items from the wardrobe to get an unobstructed view of the space.
Start by measuring the width of the wardrobe from left to right. You must measure the inside of your space- this will be your opening width. We suggest measuring at 2 points horizontally, along the bottom and along the top, if your sizes are different, do not worry, just give us the bigger size- our doors are adjustable and can compensate for uneven spaces.
Next, measure the height of the wardrobe from the floor to the top. Again, you must measure the inside of your wardrobe space- this will give you your opening height. We suggest measuring at 3 points, the top left corner, the top right corner and in the middle, you may need steps or a ladder depending on the height of your space. To achieve the perfect fit, we manufacture to your smallest height size.
Finally, measure the depth of the wardrobe from the back to the front. If you are interested in our wide range of shelving we require these measurements for allocating the correct number of boards for your space.
In addition to the basic measurements, you should also consider measuring the following:
Door width: if your wardrobe has doors, measure the width of each door.
Inside measurements: measure the inside of the wardrobe, including the space between shelves, to ensure you select the right size fittings.
Obstructions: measure around any obstructions, such as light fixtures or baseboards, to ensure your new fittings fit properly.
Tips for Accurate Measurements
To ensure accurate measurements, keep the following tips in mind:
Measure twice to be sure you have the correct dimensions.
Use a notepad and pen to write down all measurements to avoid confusion.
Measure from the back of the wardrobe to the front edge, not from the molding or frame.
We require measurements in millimeters, this will ensure you have perfect fitting wardrobes.
Measuring your wardrobe space is a crucial step in adding new fittings to your wardrobe. Accurate measurements ensure that you select the correct size of fittings and maximize the available storage space. Follow the steps outlined above and keep the tips in mind to achieve accurate measurements.
