For the price the reviews can be as poor as you like

I have the 1.8m version ( had for 2.5 years ) - it wasn’t easy to build took 2 of us 3 hours but it’s a great wardrobe - once built I wouldn’t image it could be moved easily.
I’m buying another one for a different room.
Thanks op

maybe I'm just poor or tight but I'm not parting with £160 odd when something's got bad reviews. It looks nice but If it wobbles, doesn't have pilot holes and the back doesn't fit I'll keep my money. Hopefully the reviews are wrong and you have no issues, I'm just to skint to take the risk

Haha fair enough

I have this wardrobe, it's great and quality is fantastic but it was a nightmare to put up, the doors in particular.

FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE - we bought this one for a similar price. Looks good and the doors are nice, plus it's reasonably easy to assemble with 2 strong people BUT

The design of the thing is ridiculous because the top section attaches to the side sections with a few screws and dowels rather than having the top sitting ON the sides and so supported by them. This means that the very heavy doors that are attached by a track to the top are supported only by those screws/dowels, not the frame of the unit. We found that when mounted the weight of the doors pulled down enough to actually start to split the particle board top and interfere with the movement of the doors. There was no way I was going to the trouble of disassembling the thing to return (the delivery was very delayed and the couriers were a nightmare) so I made a quick trip to Homebase and got some 18mm x 24mm wood pieces that I screwed inside the unit to support the top. This actually worked ok and the colour of the wood pretty well matched the inside of the wardrobe anyway so it's not all that noticeable.
All in all it's fine now and the price is good but buyer beware that you may have the same problem!

Can anyone please confirm if it has 2 rails & 2 shelves as per description. Thx
