DIY wardrobe projects are very popular and are covered extensively by the media and a number of TV shows. This is a good thing, because it creates more awareness of fitted wardrobes, bespoke wardrobes and made-to-measure wardrobes in the country.

As most people realize, as they take on these do-it-yourself projects, they are not easy and cannot be done by everyone. Designing hinged or sliding door wardrobes, walk-in closets, fitted bedrooms or other storage solutions require a specific set of skills, which can only be developed with years of on-the-job learning and experience.

Let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons of taking on a DIY wardrobe project. The biggest advantage of taking on do-it-yourself projects is that usually you will get to save a lot of money on them, provided you do it the right way. However, you are responsible for the design and the installation of the wardrobe and should things go wrong, you might have no choice but to hire a professional to make the corrections – so this ends up costing you more than it would, had you chosen to get the wardrobe made by a specialist from the start.

Now, a lot of people start DIY projects as a part of a bonding process with their spouse or with a parent or sibling. But it is not easy to design a made-to-measure wardrobe, bespoke wardrobe or fitted wardrobe. You may realise as you go along that you’ve probably taken on more than you had bargained. There are far too many complexities involved in fitted bedroom design and there is a steep learning curve that you will need to overcome even to create functional wardrobes. Time is another major factor in DIY projects. If you are on a break from work, this may not be a big issue, but you might need to spend many hours on cutting and measuring the pieces and then assembling them.

So when you take on more than you can handle, you might end up wasting time and money on the project. The more complex the DIY project is, the steeper the learning curve and greater is the demand on your time. Is that something that you are prepared to deal with?

An easier thing would be to take on a much simpler DIY project such as designing the shelves and cabinet. Let the professionals handle the hard work of designing, professionally cutting materials and fitting of your efficient bespoke storage solutions and fitted bedrooms.

A DIY fitted wardrobe project is a lot of fun and you may find it enjoyable, as long as you don’t take on tasks that are too complex or difficult.
