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.

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.

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.
