Sharps bedroom furniture - fitted wardrobes
Author Name: katylb
Advantages: Fit to ceiling, so no dust on top of wardrobes.
Disadvantages: Time between delivery of the units and installation.
At first sight this company seems very expensive but I doubt anyone pays the full price as they always seem to have a special offer on. When one finishes a new and similar one starts, so don't feel pressurised into buying before you are ready in case you miss the 'sale' price. Final price ended up being similar to prices I had been quoted for poorer quality units. I had an L shaped unit to fit into a corner. This gives me effectively 2 double wardrobe spaces, one with full height hanging and storage above and one with 2 rails of half height hanging with a smaller shelf above.
From me first visiting the Sharps showroom to the completed installation was virtually seamless. The rep who first visited to discuss what I would like was helpful and made suggestions as to what would best fit into the space I had available, drawing out different layouts so I could picture what they would look like. The surveyor checked measurements carefully and made sure that what had been planned was what I actually wanted.
The only slight negative in the whole process was that I was not kept fully informed of delivery dates and had to phone to find out if the projected date had been confirmed as no one had been in contact. There were limits on delivery days which meant that it was over a week from delivery of the kit to the installation date. This put my bedroom out of action during this time which was a bit inconvenient. I had to move the carpet back to allow the units to fit onto the floor, so this had to be refitted once the installation was complete. It does mean though that when I come to replace the carpet I won't be left with a bit of old carpet under the wardrobes!
Both the delivery men and the installer were very careful in their work, covering my carpets as they came into the house and ensuring that they did not mark the walls as they carried long wardrobe doors up the stairs. The installer cleaned up well after himself and worked tirelessly until the job was completed. An 8am start and after 6pm when he finished. The installation wasn't quite as planned but the modification the installer made was actually better than what had been originally planned so quite happy with it.
My installation was only completed 6 weeks ago so time will tell on how durable it will turn out to be but I can now hang up all my clothes and actually find them in the wardrobe.
Summary: Overall very happy with my purchase after years of putting up with ugly second hand wardrobes.
