Frequently Asked Questions

MTM Wardrobes Frequently Asked Questions.

These are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions we get asked about how our units go together. If you would like any more information about our work or Products Please feel free to give us a call we are always happy to help.

Q:- What are the drawers made of?
A:- We use 16mm melamine covered HMR (High Moisture Resistant) particle board for the back, base and front of our drawers. The use of metal sides and metal drawer runners completes the drawers.

Q:- How are your drawers put together?
A:- All drawers are screwed from the sides and the base.

Q:- What type of handle comes with the drawers?
A:- Our drawer handle is a 96mm anodised bow handle. This handle was chosen for its safety feature of having no sharp edges or corners to catch clothes whilst in the robe.

Q:- What height are the top shelves fixed at?
A:- Our tall units are 2000mm tall so this means that our top shelf is fixed at 2000mm from the floor

Our short units are 1800mm Tall so this means that our top shelf is fixed at 1800mm from the floor

All of our units have 1 fixed shelf in the centre this is to give the unit its strength

Q:- What colours are your units available in?
A:- Our standard units are in white to keep costs down. We can offer any of our cabinets using the Formica Wardrobe Range of colours.

we can also supply cabinets to match any existing cabinet work for most of the major laminate suppliers

Formica, Laminex, Polytec, Stylite.

Q:- How will you make my wardrobe space bigger?
A:-Unfortunately we can’t increase the space, but we can optimise the use of the space. This is achieved by creating double hanging areas and a higher top shelf. Most robes are provided with a low top shelf and single hang rail, by raising the top shelf we are able to provide 2 hang rails thus doubling your hanging space.

Q:- Where can I store my Shoes and Hand bags?
A:- The best shoe and hand bag storage is in one of our adjustable shelving units. This enables you to adjust the shelves to suit the various heights of shoes and bags. It also prevents you crawling around the floor looking for the other shoe!

Q:- Can I get  wire baskets?
A:- We don’t do wire baskets or shelving. The wire baskets look great in the adverts with minimal clothing in them but in the real world most people that have the wire baskets don’t like them. The clothes poke through the wire and cause the other baskets around them to become caught and or jammed

Q:- We already have a top shelf and hang rail. Do you remove the existing shelf and rail?
A:- It is usually necessary for this to be removed.

We recommend that you remove this yourself as you are then     able to patch and paint the wall before your new robe is       installed. We can remove it for you if required. This will incur an additional fee. Whilst we will patch up any holes made we do not repaint walls.

Any shelving removed will be left on site.

Q:- We have hinged doors and would like them replaced with sliding doors. Can this be done?

A:- Yes! It is a relatively simple process. We remove the hinged doors and fit our sliding door frames to the existing framework.

Any doors removed will be left on site

Q:- We are wanting to change our flooring. Is it best to get the flooring done before or after the wardrobe is installed?

A:– We recommend that you have your flooring installed first. This ensures a continuous flow of your flooring resulting in a smoother finish. Our units and door track system will sit neatly on top with no cut edges showing.
