Simply Sliding Wardrobes – Location, Location, Location

A lot of changes have happened at Simply Sliding Wardrobes this year and we want our customers to enjoy the journey we are on and understand what we are all about.

 

Up until the beginning of 2017 Simply Sliding Wardrobes were based in West Kingsdown, about half way between Swanley and Sevenoaks. We had been there for seven years developing Simply Sliding Wardrobes.

 

Due to our ever increasing success in creating beautiful sliding door wardrobes throughout Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Essex and London, the demand from our customers, their friends and family meant that we needed to relocate to larger premises.

 

We increased our numbers to keep up with the demand for great quality made to measure sliding wardrobes. Training and experience are paramount as we strive to exceed our customer’s expectations and maintain our high quality of sliding wardrobe installations. Our reputation of producing a high quality bespoke interior storage solution behind beautiful sliding doors at great value is very important to us. Style, quality, choice and value…we simply know what you expect!

 

It only seems five minutes since we said goodbye to Hawley Garden Centre and the display of sliding door wardrobes we had there for three years.

 

Our new premises are bigger and better, and although we miss the easy road links from West Kingsdown to the A20, A2, M2, M26, M20, M25 for our smart sign written vans, the potential for future growth for Simply Sliding Wardrobes has us looking forwards.

 

The new address for Simply Sliding Wardrobes is:

 

Unit 28 Branbridges Industrial Estate

East Peckham

Tonbridge

Kent

TN12 5HF

 

As we have been here sometime now, we are well overdue to up-date everyone on all we have done this year.

 

This year we have installed more sliding wardrobes than any previous year.

 

This has given us even more satisfaction that we have helped more customers overcome their storage problems with a made to measure solution. The choice of sliding doors has been even more bespoke than ever with our special multi-panel sliding doors. This has given our customers unique sliding wardrobe doors that do not exist anywhere else….and with a ten year guarantee who could ask for anything more!

 

Simply Sliding Wardrobes have had more recommendations and returning customers than ever before, which is testament to the standards we maintain.

 

We are always looking to improve what we offer our customers and we regularly review the colours available for our sliding wardrobes and the designs and frames for our sliding doors. We have more exciting developments on this front this year and more to come in the New Year.

 

We will be concentrating on the four cornerstones of our sliding wardrobes in the coming year – style, quality, choice and value.

Now you know where to find us at Simply Sliding Wardrobes please pop in to see us or give us a call on 01622 873223 to arrange a free, no obligation designer appointment at your location, location, location.

 

Simply Sliding Wardrobes at Hawley Garden Centre

Until earlier this year we had a Sliding Wardrobe display at Hawley Garden Centre.

A big ‘thank you’ to Jan and all of the staff at Hawley Garden Centre for their help and hospitality over the last three years.

 

At Simply Sliding Wardrobes we know our customers take care and look after their homes, as do the customers of Hawley Garden Centre, which made the decision to put our display at this award winning garden centre very easy.

We always expected a level of interest in our made to measure sliding door wardrobes from the regular customers, and our visiting customers have discovered a great garden centre as well. This has generated more local enquiries for fitted sliding wardrobes and further local recommendations for us.

 

Our display showed three sliding wardrobes including two with the wardrobe interiors. It was a good opportunity to show what we do and give our customers a chance to see how well our sliding wardrobe doors run, as well as see the quality of our work up close.

We continue to fit sliding door wardrobes throughout Kent and the south east. From design through to installation we create your perfect sliding door wardrobe with you, and keep your requirements at the forefront of our thinking.

 

Simply Sliding Wardrobes have grown over the last year and the demand for our sliding wardrobes has increased. The choice of colours we have to offer, the quality of our installations, the very well regarded customer service and the great value of our sliding wardrobes all contribute to our recommendations and returning customers.

We have outgrown and moved from our premises in West Kingsdown but continue to keep our prices for our sliding door wardrobes as competitive as ever and we are definitely still designing and installing beautiful sliding door wardrobes in North Kent.

Sliding Wardrobes for your New Build property – Don’t compromise now!

There are a lot of new houses being built in the south east of England, more than last year and the government is pushing for more. The demand is there and builders are working flat out, building as quick as they can and trying to make the money go further than ever before as the need for more affordable housing reduces their margins, so they have to make some compromises along the way.

 

The housing market has a lot of issues to deal with and everyone has an opinion on them, because it effects everybody in different ways. There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution and there is no perfect progression for everyone to buy into. We all have choices to make and we all have things we will not compromise on, that’s what makes us who we are.

 

As a bespoke sliding wardrobe company we design with our customers a solution that suits their requirements and no-one else. A made to measure internal wardrobe design including shelves, drawers, hanging rails and many other accessories to complete YOUR sliding door wardrobe. A perfect balance – not a compromise to put up with.

 

There are some developers that offer a sliding wardrobe with your new property and you can also purchase additional sliding wardrobes for other rooms in your new build home. We offer a simple question to those of you thinking of buying a sliding wardrobe with your new build home – why compromise?

 

Have you ever wondered why you only get offered the one shelf one rail builders cupboard? Here’s the real reason: A wardrobe made by fitting doors right across the end of a room or by enclosing two walls of the house and a nib, which forms the end of the cupboard, is not considered furniture and the VAT is recoverable. On opening the doors, the back and inside walls of the house should be visible. Any internal fittings beyond a shelf and a hanging rail are said to turn the cupboard into furniture and therefore the VAT is not recoverable.

 

We are sure you didn’t get to this point of buying your new build home by saying ‘oh well, it’s convenient and we need something’. We are sure you spent a lot of time looking where to live, researching developers, looking at different house types, weighing up different mortgage options and deciding that there were things that were not up for compromise.

 

We spend time with you designing how you want your ideal wardrobe to be laid out. Go through the extensive range of colours we have to offer. We manufacture our own sliding doors to the measurements we take in your home. We use our own experienced sliding wardrobes installers to install your made to measure sliding wardrobe. We do not compromise on the quality of our professional sliding door product, the materials we use or the expertise we use on every installation.

 

Simply Sliding Wardrobes Ltd have a number of customers that have been astute enough to shop around and find a solution with us, and all have commented on the tremendous value for money we have shown relative to the developer.

 

If you are looking for great value sliding wardrobes for your new home we would like to offer you extensive design experience and customer service second to none.

 

If you would like to arrange a free, no obligation, designer appointment please call us on 0800 313 4681 or fill out he form on the Book a Designer visit page and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

We also see a record number of returning customers and an ever increasing number of recommendations by our existing customers to their family and friends.

We have additional new colour frames for our sliding doors and brand new glass colours to add to our unique and extensive range we already had. Even more choice than ever! Don’t forget we make all our own sliding doors for the wardrobes we install and can create a unique look just for you.

Although we do get great comments on how straight forward and uncomplicated our website is, we will be making more improvements during in 2016. We have already enabled a version of our website for all mobile devices. This includes our Door Designer page which is a very useful visual aid to help decide how you want your sliding door wardrobe to look.

 

We will shortly be sharing new pictures on our Gallery page of some of the wonderful sliding door wardrobes we installed last year.

 

The choice in colours has exploded and they will also be showing on our website soon. Your designer will have a full set of all colours at your designer appointment.

Simply Sliding Wardrobes – Getting it right for you!

At Simply Sliding Wardrobes we have always tried to maintain a customers perspective on what we do and how we do it. The question is ‘If I was the customer what would I like to happen?’ and ‘How would I like to be treated?’. These questions are never far from our minds and we often have informal discussions on how we can improve our customers experience of us designing and installing their sliding door wardrobes.

 

Simply Sliding Wardrobes set a high standard of customer service and this has been repaid by the number of repeat customers and recommendations from our customers to their friends and family. This is a great endorsement of our sliding wardrobes and the way we approach our business. Naturally we do not take this for granted and really appreciate how our attention to detail is recognized by the most discerning of individuals.

 

Individuals are very important. Every one of our made to measure sliding wardrobes is individual, as individual as our customers. We work with our customers to produce the best bespoke interior for their needs, offering ideas and guidance to achieve this. We can keep it simple and we can manage complicated. With our wide range of sliding door colours and finishes we can achieve a very striking contemporary look, a traditional style or a very discrete finish that blends with your bedroom. This can only be achieved through control of our own manufacture and making the sliding doors ourselves.

 

The high quality of our sliding wardrobe installations are a delight to our customers and the care and consideration shown at installation is frequently commented upon in our Customer Reviews.

 

We recently designed, manufactured and installed a sliding door wardrobe for a  Mr.Salt in Kent, and he contacted us by email to describe his experience of Simply Sliding Wardrobes,

 

Its very easy to take to social media when something invariably goes wrong but its equally as important to shout when things go exactly according to plan.

 

So, we had your fitter pay us a visit last week to install our sliding bedroom wardrobes. He text me the evening before to let me know he would be here the next day and arrived at the time he said he would. No waiting in between 8 and 5. Thank you.
He was polite, courteous, friendly, hard working and above all efficient. If it wasn’t for the noise of the power tools you wouldn’t have known that he was working in the house. He covered everything that might get dusty, put ground sheets down, kept his portable radio volume to a minimum and left the area as clean as when he arrived.

 

I must say, his attention to detail was good, I mean really good. The intricacies of cutting around coving at an angle that doesn’t make it look like you butchered it, is a bit of an art form and he did it perfectly, his making good was faultless.
It was a pleasure to have him working in my home and I felt you should know.
From consultation to design and installation, a simply excellent job from Simply Sliding Wardrobes. No frills, but no fuss, a great job and all at a competitive rate. Done and dusted (literally) between 8 and 4.30.
Recommend? A simple yes.
Thanks
Feel free to add to the reviews on your site, please pass on my thanks to your fitter.

 

 

Kind regards

 

 

Mr.Salt’

Spring Sale on our Sliding Wardrobes

At this time of year we all look to have a spring clean, de-clutter and spruce up every room in the house. Simply Sliding Wardrobes can expertly help in the most important room in your house, the bedroom. Sliding wardrobes will solve not only a perenial spring cleaning issue, but do so for many years to come.

Recent studies have found that your state of mind at the very beginning of the day can determine how relaxed and stress free you can be for the rest of the day. That is not entirely surprising, but the studies found that your bedroom environment played a large part in that state of mind. A neat and tidy bedroom, especially reducing the amount of clutter and having a place for everything, tucked away in a sliding wardrobe will definitely help that state of mind.

 

The over-crowded free-standing wardrobes of many mis-matched colours. The boxes and bags on top catch your eye as the sun flows through the window and pick up the layer of dust. The drawer unit with the dodgy handle with the drawer at the bottom that you don’t like to open because it is so difficult to close again.

Sliding wardrobes fitted floor to ceiling is what you deserve to wake up to. Colours to spare and a smooth running system that you will love from day one.

 

Remember at Christmas when you were looking for that special jacket/dress/shirt and had to find something else because it had fallen down in the back of the wardrobe, and wasn’t ready to wear.

You desrve the interior of your new sliding door wardrobe designed with you, to your requirements. Made to measure not made to fit. Drawers, shelves, hanging rails and accessories expertly designed in a way that suits your needs.

 

Spring is certainly here with bank holidays coming thick and fast. Our attention automatically turns to outside and the lovelly weather on the horizon. We fully expect to maximise our time outside. Waking up each morning in a relaxed frame of mind will enhance your enjoyment of the day ahead. Now is the time to de-clutter your bedroom and get that sliding wardrobe designed and installed by the experts. Why subject your summer fashions to the wardrobes you have, they desrve better.

 

We think now is the time to spring into action and book your designer appointment and get your sliding door wardrobe quotation organised and plan your installation.

Sliding Door Wardrobes at the Ideal Home Show

The Ideal Home Show is still on until 30th March with many great ideas and innovations for your home and garden. Prevoking thought for new layouts, styles and technologies that will change how you treat your living space.

 

Sliding wardrobes are again at the Ideal Home Show which is no surprise because if there is one improvment everyone is looking for is the ability to space save. Whether it is a new technology that will make a gadget smaller or a clever add-on that removes the need for a gadget entirely we all strive to reduce the space we take up and increase the time we have be doing what we want to do not what we have to do.

 

The Ideal Home Show is now over 100 years old and has seen many innovations over  that time, including the transformation of sliding door wardrobes and all of the interior gadgetry they can contain. The sliding wardrobe certainly ticks the box when it comes to saving floor space in your bedroom, but the key to maximising the capacity of your sliding wardrobe is in the design. Everyone has a different lifestyle and the Ideal Home Show can be said to be a celebration of this, otherwise there would be one of everything and they would all  be the same colour!

In the same way the interior of your sliding wardrobe must to be tailored to your needs and lifestyle – not to a generic, computer analysed, lowest common denominator, same-for-all soloution! You should not settle for anything less.

We work with you to create the optimum solution for your sliding wardrobe storage. Hanging rails, shelving and drawers are all made to measure and are cleverly designed into your sliding wardrobe to go further to improve your storage capacity than you would expect.

 

We hope you have been inspired by the Ideal Home Show for colours and creativity, and most importantly to address the project you have been putting off for far too long.

Our sliding wardrobes are available in many different colours, so a new look along with newly created space in your bedroom will give you a new perspective on how your day comes together.

If you would like to put the words ‘Ideal’ to your sliding wardrobe and feel that your bedroom is the best room in your ‘Home’, then give us a call we will ‘Show’ you how it can be done.

Sliding Wardrobe Doors

We design, manufacture and install made to measure sliding door wardrobes throughout the south east.

This includes the interior, made to measure to your requirements and the sliding doors in a wide choice of colours and styles.

 

We are sometimes asked for just the sliding doors and tracks. Now, while we do not offer a ‘supply only’ service, we are happy to expertly fit just the sliding doors, tracks and a suitable exterior framework if it is needed.

The reasoning behind needing just the sliding doors is quite varied and explain why sliding door wardrobes are extremely popular today and is the first choice for many households given the opportunity starting from an empty space.

 

Your existing wardrobe may have hinged doors that are old and tired, but the interior is perfectly well constructed and fit for purpose. Then why create more work by taking it all out and replicating the same interior that has served you for years perfectly well – you won’t get an arguement from us! We can create a framework and fit new sliding doors, giving your wardrobe a well earned makeover.

 

An unfortunate senario is when you move into a new build property and the developer has created the delightful ‘builders cupboard’ – one shelf and one rail behind two oversized hinged doors. Now you have just moved in and when you get your bed in the room you suddenly realise you are dancing around hinged doors trying to get to your clothes – the room looked bigger when you didn’t open the doors! With a little bit of work we can fit the sliding doors within the hinged door framework and give that valuable floor space back.

 

From our point of view the worst and most disconcerting reason is the failure of an existing sliding door wardrobe because it has been installed badly. No matter how good the system, if the fitter has cut corners or used poor fitting practice or plainly made it up as they went along, we can tell and we don’t like it. It shortens the life expectancy of your sliding wardrobe doors! Here we take a very careful look at the existing wardrobe and take the necessary action to make sure no inherent faults effect your new sliding wardrobe.

 

Now we may not appear to be as cheap as the ‘supply only’ sliding wardrobe door companies, but our work does not stop at delivering to your front door!

A free measurement and survey, a choice of exclusive sliding door designs and colours, expert installation and a ten year guarantee on the running of you Simply Sliding Wardrobe doors.

What a Surprise!!

We are always fitting sliding wardrobes in all sorts of different styles of property; from a bungalow on the coast to an apartment in town and all stops in between. This is not unusual and we have the experience to come up with a solution in all cases.

We can keep it simple and just fit the sliding doors to re-vamp your wardrobe, or include a host of accessories as you wish in your made to measure sliding wardrobe. The experience is all here!

 

Our experience with sliding wardrobes is second to none and we are not fazed by any situation, there have been a couple of occasions when we have been taken a little bit by surprise.

We would say that the majority of our customers are looking to make the most of their space, and for us to design the sliding wardrobe interior to suit our customers needs is second nature, no surprise there.

Quite often the division of space between a couple sharing a sliding door wardrobe is fifty fifty in design and twenty five seventy five in practice. In any case the decision is often shared in layout, and importantly colours. However, when there is a large selection colours for a sliding wardrobe to choose from, men tend to go colour blind and get confused, no surprise there.

 

The big surprise for us is the customers that have a sliding door wardrobe installed as a surprise for their other half – wow.

Now just imagine that, would you consider coming home to find a new sliding wardrobe in your bedroom a perfect surprise?

Can you imagine your partner doing that?

 

Yes, absolutely true. We had instructions to not arrive until after their partners had left for work and be finished before they got home.

Hat’s off and full credit to (in these cases) the gentlemen concerned, either very brave or insightful in their choices of colours and layout for their sliding wardrobes.

We know the sliding wardrobe installations were well received. We have returned to one customer to fit another bedroom with sliding wardrobes and we are fitting a sliding wardrobe for a family member of the other customer.

 

Whichever way you see this surprise, the one thing that can not be denied is the tremendous gift of space and style a sliding door wardrobe can give to your bedroom.
