4 Door Wardrobes (Quad Wardrobes) Buyers Guide


4 Door Wardrobes GuideA few years ago my wardrobe need was nothing more than a simple double wardrobe. Now its at least a triple and even that is becoming tough to put all my clothes in. Perhaps you are like me? If there is one thing we have easy access to these days it is clothes and that results in bigger storage needs. Perhaps you have multiple shirts for work, weekend clothes, gardening clothes and your best wedding outfits. We have a outfit for all occasions. With all these clothes comes a huge need for storage and that is where a quad wardrobe comes in. A quadruple wardrobe (Quad Wardrobe) aka a 4 door wardrobe has an abundance of storage options often including drawers, shelves, mirrors or a combination of the three.

In order to own a wardrobe of this size you will typically have a large need for storage, a large bedroom and a large budget (although finance is often available). You don’t just buy a quad wardrobe – you make an investment.

Quad wardrobes offer hanging rail storage and very often internal shelves and additional drawers. They offer not just a large volume of storage but a large number of options which we go into a little more below.

Material Options

Oak

Oakland 4 Door WardrobeOne of the first things that springs to mind with a wardrobe as larger as a quad is the need for real strength. It doesn’t just need to be large enough for all your clothes – it also needs to be strong enough. If you are looking for a strong wood then you cannot do better than oak. Oak is known for it strength and although it does end up costing more it does offer a wardrobe that will withstand the tests of time.

Painted

Chantilly White Quad WardrobeIf you are not a fan of the wood effect that oak gives you then you can opt for a painted quad wardrobe. These are often made from the same wood but have a painted effect. This is most typically white or grey although if you look carefully and take your time you may be able to find other colours.

 

Design Options

Full Hanging

Chantilly White 4 Door WardrobeThe most standard type of wardrobe is the full hanging. This is simply where you have hanging rail throughout without shelves or drawers. The Chantilly White Quad Wardrobe which you can read more on below can be set as a full hanging wardrobe if you remove the adjustable shelves. This is ideal for a married couple with a large number of dresses, suits, shirts and trousers.

With Drawers

Oakland 4 Drawer WardrobeOne of the best designs of wardrobe no matter how many doors there are is the wardrobe with drawers. This is a great way to increase storage even if only by a little. A quadruple wardrobe with drawers offers a huge level of storage often removing the need for a separate chest of drawers. There are a few designs around including designs from The Burford Painted, Chester Grey and Oakland Collections (please see below).

With Shelves

Chester Grey Quad WardrobeOne of the great options is the optional shelves. As mentioned above the Chantilly Quad offers you the chance to either use shelves or remove them. Typically they are available behind the far right and far left doors. Great examples of this are not only the Chantilly Painted Quad but also the Mottisfont Painted Quad Wardrobe.

With Drawers and Shelves

Mottisfont Painted Quad (4 Door) WardrobesAs well as an option on shelves some offer you pretty much everything. Not only do you have hanging rail storage but you can add in shelves and have drawers beneath. There are typically either two or three drawers below a quad wardrobe.

 

 

Cost of a 4 Door Wardrobe

Obviously the larger the wardrobe the more it is likely to cost. The quality is also a factor. The ideal is to find a wardrobe that costs enough to know that it is made from food long lasting materials while still being affordable and cost effective enough to buy. One of the major factors in determining the price is the wood that is used and the condition the wardrobe is delivered in.

Flat Packed

Flat packed wardrobes are wardrobes that come in boxes and are made of MDF. They are a lot cheaper than solid wood wardrobes but for good reason. The down sides is that they are of much poorer quality with a less solid structure and a much shorter useful life. They are really only for people who cannot afford a better quality wardrobe. Quad wardrobes offer a high level of storage and therefor need to be strong. For this reason we do not recommend flat packed quad wardrobes.

Part Assembled

Part assembled are the ideal as far as we are concerned. Much like flat packed the sections arrive in boxes but that is well and truly where the similarities end. The quality of wood with part assembled wardrobes is far superior to that of flat packed. The sections are bolted together to form a wardrobe as solid as a fully assembled wardrobe but with none of the downsides. It is the best of both worlds.

Fully Assembled

While many people believe that fully assembled wardrobes are the best there is a good reason not to buy them. A quad wardrobe can be up to and around 200 cm in height and is often even wider. The Chantilly for example is 224 cm in width. Imagine for a second someone turning up on your door with that wardrobe. Assuming they have managed to get it off the truck and to your door without dropping or damaging it how are they going to get it to your master bedroom? How are they going to go into your house, turn it and carry it up the stairs and round the corner into your bedroom all without marking either the wardrobe or your walls? Strong wood equals a really heavy unit and wood does not bend.

 

Where to Buy Quad/4 Door Wardrobes

There is any number of places to buy furniture these days with many of them being online. With so many options how do you know where to buy a wardrobe? Here we recommend a number of the best places to go as well as give solid reasons why. These are some of the finest quad wardrobes UK retailers have to offer. There are many to choice from but those shown below are in our opinion the very best.

  • The Cotswold Company
  • Wayfair
  • Dunelm
  • Furniture Village

The Cotswold Company

The Cotswold CompanyOur number one recommended furniture retailer is the Cotswold Company. This company has been in business for many years. They pride themselves in producing the very best quality furniture to make your home as great as possible. When you look at the furniture and when you sample the customer service you can easily see this is the case.

What we particularly like about The Cotswold Company is that not only do they offer amazing solid wood furniture for the whole house they actually have 5 of the best 4 door wardrobes available anywhere in the UK. The offer a number of delivery options, can assemble furniture for you and offer a wonderful finance option.

Visit The Cotswold Company

Furniture Village

Formed in 1989 Furniture Village is probably the most well known of our four recommended retailers. We do not think their website is as good as The Cotswold Company but their choice of furniture (particularly wardrobes) makes them worth the recommendation.

They stock hundreds of different wardrobes. These include everything a range of colours, hinged, sliding door, bi-folding not forgetting a number of different sizes including 4 door wardrobes. That is after all while you are here. Their range is extensive and covers everything that anyone could want or need. They offer interest free credit on all orders over £375 (correct at time of writing) and with a number of stores located around the country they are always easy to get hold of.

Visit Furniture Village

Wayfair

Wayfair are the first of two recommended retailers who offer a great range of wardrobes for those with a tighter budget. They offer wardrobes from 1 door through to 6 doors, they have a number of different colours, different woods and some wonderful designs.

One of the main reasons we have recommended them is the value for money they offer. The cheapest 4 door wardrobe from Wayfair is just over £200 so there is no way that you cannot afford it.

We recommend you check out our best wardrobe guide below taking a close eye on the Caroline 4 Door Wardrobe and the Silvey 4 Door Wardrobe in particular

Visit Wayfair

Dunelm

Dunelm WardrobesLast but not least we have recommended Dunelm. As with Wayfair this retailer offers some very competitively priced wardrobes for those with a tighter budget. Four door wardrobes start from about £280 (correct at time of writing) but go up closer to £1000 in some cases.

Dunelm are another company that you may have heard of although I have been writing about wardrobes and other furniture for so long maybe its just me.

They offer a wonderful range of wardrobes using different woods, with different looks, sizes and designs. They even have items of furniture for the children’s bedroom so you can be sure they have whatever it is you want – and all at a great price.

Best Quad Wardrobes

Please Note: None of the wardrobes we recommend here are delivered assembled. This is simply due to the weight and the size of the wardrobes. As said above many of these wardrobes are over 2 meters long and tall. They simply will not fit up stairs and around corners in most modern homes. We recommend part assembled wardrobes or for a cheaper more affordable option flat packed wardrobes.
