How To Measure
- Before you order your Quick Ship or Custom wardrobe, it is essential that you measure the space where you want to place the wardrobe.
- Accurate measurements are vital to ensure a perfectfit. Fortunately, obtaining the right measurements is easy, if you follow the steps outlined in this guide.
- If your wardrobe is going in a niche in a wall, you need to measure the inside dimensions of the space, namely the width, depth, and height.
- If the wardrobe will be placed in a room, then you need to measure the wall along which it will sit, the height of the room ceiling, and any protrusions in the room which will prevent the opening of the wardrobe.
What you will need:
- Tape Measure
- A notepad
- Measure the height of the opening–Take the least height measurement in the niche, reduce one inch, and enter the height in our module calculator for us to tell you the standard height that will fit.
- Measure the width of the opening – Again, if your wardrobe is going in a niche, you will need to measure the inside of the space from left to right, both in the front as well as the back of the niche.You will also need to do the same for the top and bottom of the niche. This will tell you if the niche is unevenly wide,as most of them are. Take the least width, reduce one inch, and that becomes your usable width, which you enter in the module calculator for us to tell you the nearest width module that will fit into your space.
- Measure the depth of the opening – You also need to measure the depth of your niche,on the left and right, as well as at the top and bottom. The least depth reading will become your usable depth. Our standard fixed outside depth of the wardrobes is 24 1/2", so if your niche is less than this, your HomeCreed wardrobe will jut out. However, if the wardrobe is going in a room, then this depth will not pose a problem.
Once you confirm the order, we can send our carpenter to measure the space for you, so that your wardrobe fits well where you wish it to go. There is NO CHARGE for this service.
