How to build a Wardrobe with our Step by Step Guide

The first step in how to build a wardrobe is to start with the interiors, fit your liners if using, then the cut and fix the top and bottom tracks and fit the doors.

  • Assemble fitted bedroom wardrobe interiors. You can purchase interiors from me or you can build your own.
  • Fix an end panel 1 or 2 if required. An end panel is needed if your doors are not running wall to wall.
  • Fit wall liner or floor liners if using. Liners are highly recommended to provide a firm base, a frame and a great finish to your new wardrobe.
  • Install sliding door tracks. Simply measure carefully and screw the top track to the ceiling and bottom track to the floor or liner
  • Fit the doors. Assuming that all your measurements are sound, your doors will simply slip into place. An alternative way, especially when fittig to laminate, is to lay the bottom tracks to the floor without fixing. Install the doors and use a spirit level to ensure the doors are vertically straight. you can then screw the bottom track down.
  • Adjust your sliding wardrobe doors. Each door has up to 50mm adjustment at each end.
  • Enjoy your new diy wardrobes!
