Take heed of these 5 rules for buying, designing and fitting fitted wardrobes, cupboards and storage.

Customise

Consider inside storage, too – use adjustable rails, compartments and racks to create a purpose-built interior tailored to you.

Size-up

Work around features such as alcoves or bay windows with built-in cupboards, shelving and boxed-in storage that fi ts the space for a streamlined look.

Solve

Tackle awkwardly-shaped rooms and tricky spaces with a bespoke arrangement that factors in any problem areas and incorporates them into the design.

Stretch

Use all available space by exploiting both the height and width of a room to gain valuable extra inches.

Design

Keep décor co-ordinated with materials, fittings and finishes that complement your scheme, from modern high-gloss to rustic country-style paintwork.
