How much do fitted wardrobes cost in 2022?

Fitted wardrobes can be a beautiful addition to any bedroom, offering bespoke, useful storage space and quality design that can match any décor. They can add value to your home, make your bedroom a more tranquil and serene place to be, and even incorporate handy features like lighting, shoe racks or even lockable drawers.

However, if you’re looking to get fitted wardrobes installed in your home, you’re likely thinking about the price. While many people think of fitted wardrobes as an expensive, luxury purchase, you may find that it’s more affordable than you might believe to get fitted wardrobes installed in your home. Of course, as with any project, the cost of a fitted wardrobes project will depend on the choices you make, the size of the room, and any other features you want.

Read on to find out more about how much you could pay to get fitted wardrobes, as well as what decisions you can make that will affect the price.

Fitted wardrobes price guide

As you can see from the table, we’ve come up with an average price for fitted wardrobes across the UK, with variations to cover the differences in different locations and areas. Bear in mind that this is for a medium sized fitted wardrobe, with no extras or other features – so you could pay substantially more for a more luxurious option.

The main thing that will affect the price of a fitted wardrobe is the size. Our average price is for a 3-door fitted wardrobe, around 3 linear metres in length. A linear metre refers to each metre along the wall of the length of the wardrobe itself. For a smaller fitted wardrobe, a 2-metre option with only 2 doors, this price could be as low as £1200-£1500. For larger options, say 4 metres long with 4 doors, expect to pay around £3500-£4000. This price will continue to scale upwards based on the size of the wardrobe.

So, you should expect to pay around £2000-£3000 for an average sized fitted wardrobe. But what else will affect the price?

Explaining the cost of fitting a wardrobe

The price of your fitted wardrobe project will depend on a whole host of factors. We’ll cover some of them in here – but the key thing to remember with a fitted wardrobe project is that, as they’re bespoke designed to your exact specification, the more features you add, the more expensive your fitted wardrobe will generally be.

Size of the wardrobe

As we’ve already mentioned, the key factor that will affect the price of a fitted wardrobe is the size. Generally speaking, a fitted wardrobe will cost around £600-£800 per linear metre – the larger your wardrobe the more it’ll cost. However, particularly large wardrobes will work out cheaper than this per linear metre. 

Sliding or fixed doors

Fitted wardrobes can be specified with either hinged doors or sliding ones. Hinged doors are generally slightly cheaper, with sliding doors adding around £100-£200 to the total price of your fitted wardrobe. Generally speaking, the more doors you have on your fitted wardrobe the more you’ll pay.

Quality of materials

Not every fitted wardrobe is made equal. The quality of the materials that go into its construction will affect the longevity, sturdiness and price of the fitted wardrobe you choose. 

For budget wardrobes, the carcass of the wardrobe will be made melamine covered MDF or plywood and generally be assembled from ready-made modules that fit together to assemble your wardrobe. These will be at the very cheapest end of the price range, starting at around £800-£1000.

Mid-price wardrobes will be made from veneered MDF or plywood, and may incorporate other elements like interior lighting, mirrors, shoe racks or extra shelving features. These will be in the middle of the price range, with an averagely sized mid-price fitted wardrobe costing around £2000-£2500.

Premium fitted wardrobes will usually be made from solid wood and can be custom designed to your exact specifications. These can incorporate a wide range of features to meet your exact needs. They will be significantly more expensive, however, costing from £3000-£6000 or even more, depending on the design of the wardrobe.

Bespoke design service

While fitted wardrobes are specifically designed to fit the space in the bedroom, the level of design service you need will affect the price. Some fitted wardrobes can be constructed from modular “blocks”, where the wardrobe company will measure the space, and then fill it with a set of standard pieces that can fit in.

However, for premium fitted wardrobes, you might prefer to choose a fully bespoke design service. This will mean sitting down with a designer who will work with you to make the most of your space, incorporating the exact design elements you want to make the fitted wardrobe suit your needs perfectly. This does come with an extra cost, so you should expect to add around 20-30% to the overall price of the fitted wardrobe if you opt for this kind of bespoke service.

Extra features for a fitted wardrobe

There are also a number of extra features you could add to your fitted wardrobe. We’ve included some of these below, but you can really let your imagination run wild to get your perfect wardrobe!

Integrated lighting

Wardrobes can be dark, especially if you’re including a lot of shelving – so why not shed some light on the issue with integrated lighting? This is usually LED spotlighting, but can also incorporate door or mirror lighting. The best LED lighting is connected to either motion sensors or sensors in the door hinges, so it will come on when you open the door.

Expect to pay around £200-£500 to add this to your fitted wardrobe.

Shelving options

When it comes to shelving, there’s really no limit to how you can specify this in a fitted wardrobe – you can choose the type, height and size of the shelves you want to perfectly suit your needs. It’s worth taking some time to think about what you want to store in your fitted wardrobe and how you want it all to fit in.

The price you pay for your fitted wardrobe will increase depending on the number of shelves you choose to include – but only by a small amount.

Hanging space

Similarly, you can choose as much or as little hanging rails or other hanging space in your fitted wardrobe. These will also increase the price slightly, but as you’re likely removing other features to have more hanging space, it’ll end up being pretty negligible as part of the overall cost.

Vanities and mirrors

Another common extra feature is to add vanity units or mirrors. For example, you could have a pull-out vanity with an integrated mirror, or add hidden mirrors behind wardrobe doors.

A vanity unit will likely add around £200-£400 to the cost of your fitted wardrobe, with a mirror adding between £20-£50, depending on the size.

Shoe rack

There’s no end to the number of creative shoe racks that are available in bespoke fitted wardrobes – from simple drawers or cubbies to pull-out rotating shelving. If you want to add a shoe rack like this to your fitted wardrobe, expect to pay around £100-£500, depending on the type.

Integrated power

Having power sockets integrated in your fitted wardrobe is a useful feature – you could have a television nearby (or even as part of your fitted wardrobe!), or use it to power hair dryers or other beauty accessories. Whether this is possible or not will depend on the power sockets available in your room, but if it is possible, it’ll likely cost you around £250 to get the new sockets sorted.

Safes or secure drawers

You could even specify your fitted wardrobe with a safe or secure, lockable drawers. Safes in particular are quite expensive, so you’ll pay around £500-£1000+ for these, depending on the type of safe you want. A lockable drawer is easier and therefore less expensive to have installed, and may even come as standard with some fitted wardrobes.

Extra installation work

On top of the factors we’ve already discussed that could affect the price of your fitted wardrobe, there are also some additional costs in terms of the installation of the fitted wardrobe that are likely to increase the price you pay.

Carpets or flooring

If the tradespeople installing your fitted wardrobe need to either remove or relay carpet or flooring, this will understandably add to the cost. Expect to pay around £200 extra to remove carpet around the fitted wardrobe, and more like £600-£1000 if you need the carpet in the room to be totally relayed.

Wallpaper

Similarly, if you need to have the wallpaper removed behind the area where the fitted wardrobe will be installed, this will add around £100-£200 to the price. To totally change the wallpaper in the room around the new fitted wardrobe will add around £200-£400 to the overall cost.

Redecorating

There is a wide range of redecorating work that may also need to be done as part of getting a new fitted wardrobe installed. This may include things like:

  • Painting the room

  • Moving plug sockets

  • Changing skirting, coving or architrave

  • Moving furniture

  • Rehanging paintings or mirrors

Each of these jobs will add to the overall price you pay. Check out the other cost guides on HaMuch for more information on each of these projects.

Cost for just the installation of a fitted wardrobe

Of course, you may have purchased a fitted wardrobe from a company without installation. If this is the case, you’ll likely be considering whether to install it yourself or to get a reputable carpenter in to install it for you. The decision will be up to you and your comfort levels with this type of work – we’ll cover how much you could pay for installation, so you can make an informed decision.

Fitted wardrobe installation only prices

So, how much is it likely to cost you to get a prebought fitted wardrobe installed? The cost will generally depend on the size and complexity of the wardrobe, with some examples below:

  • Small fitted wardrobe (2-door, 2 linear metres): £100-£400

  • Medium fitted wardrobe (3-door, 3 linear metres): £300-£600

  • Large fitted wardrobe (4-door, 4 linear metres): £500-£1000

  • Large bespoke fitted wardrobe with lots of extra features: £800-£1200

Can you install a fitted wardrobe yourself?

It’s certainly possible to install a fitted wardrobe as a DIY project. How possible it is will depend on your skills and the type of wardrobe – some lower end fitted wardrobes are designed to be modular and easy to install, so these would make good DIY projects. However, high end, bespoke designed, solid wood fitted wardrobes will be a lot trickier to install, and should generally only be installed by professional carpenters.
