The Benefits of a Corner Wardrobe
Corner wardrobes offer a fabulous solution for what would otherwise be an empty space. Perfectly made to snugly fit into these angled recesses, corner wardrobes take full advantage of a room’s awkward space, transforming the area into prime storage space.
What Size is a Corner Wardrobe?

Corner Wardrobe Measuring Guide
You’ve found your dream corner wardrobe, but before you click the “buy now” button here are a couple of final checks to ensure that your lovely new wardrobe will actually fit in its new home;
- Check the product measurements are compatible with the available space
First things first. Check that your chosen wardrobe will actually fit into its destined space. The wardrobe height, width and depth will be shown on the product detail page and are usually shown in centimetres. Don’t forget to allow extra space to use the wardrobe, such as opening the doors or pulling out drawers and also allow a gap at the top for clearance. You can always mark out the wardrobe using masking tape so you can get a visual idea of how much floor space it will take up.
- Check the room for potential obstacles
Wall lights and radiators can present an obstacle when you’re considering where your wardrobe will fit. You may need to seek professional advice if these need to be moved before you install your new wardrobe.
- Is the wardrobe delivered flat pack or fully assembled
How will your new wardrobe come when it is delivered? If it is delivered fully assembled you will need to check that you will be able to manoeuvre it through your house and up the stairs. If it comes flat packed, it is easier to move into location. If you are assembling your new corner wardrobe in situ, you’ll need to ensure that you have enough space to build it and allow the wardrobe to be stood up as part of the assembly process.
Once you’ve carried out these final checks and are satisfied that your favourite corner wardrobe will fit like a glove, you can confidently hit “add to basket”. Btw, flat packed wardrobes are really super easy to assemble so don’t be put off by this, its often an advantage in terms of price (much cheaper to deliver) and it’s much easier to lug up the stairs, through doorways and around corners.
