The cost-of-living crisis is big news now with UK consumers more price sensitive than ever before. So, it’s no wonder homeowners are keen to research all available options before committing to a significant household purchase such as white goods or in our case made to measure furniture.
We can’t predict what’s going to happen with the economy, but we can tell how you much alcove cabinets and fitted wardrobes should cost and how much you could save. So, if you’ve recently moved, are refurbing or just want to add some much-needed storage space read on!
What Are The Options?
There are several different options when it comes to sourcing custom made furniture; from the pricier high street brands such as Hammonds and Sharps to employing the services of a local carpenter. At the other end of the scale there’s also the thrifty yet risky option of bodging building something yourself!
At DIY Alcove Cabinets we bridge this gap. We offer premium quality bespoke fitted furniture but without the hefty price tag. We also negate the potential risk of building something from scratch (not to mention the frustration and disappointment). Our made to measure furniture is delivered pre-cut, pre-drilled in modular, flat pack format for DIY installation. So, no onsite mess or fuss.
By using our supply only bespoke cabinet service, you’ll not only be getting a premium product, but you will also be saving a significant amount of money (approximately £2,000 plus on a pair of fitted alcove cabinets) if you’re prepared to install and paint the alcove cabinets or wardrobes yourself. Alternatively, you could employ the services of a local carpenter for the install and still save yourself a lot of hard-earned cash.
When purchasing fitted cabinets from us we guarantee you won’t be compromising on the design or quality plus our transparent online price calculator will keep you within budget. There’re no glossy sales brochures or visiting salespeople to inflate our prices, there’s no ‘chin scratching’, or ‘talking to the boss’, or ‘let me get back to you with a price’, or the old online favourite ‘please enter your details here’. The price you see on our website is the price you pay, clear, simple, and instant! We know our products and we know our customers.
