Q & As

Rated 3 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by End result worth it Took two of us to construct, me and my daughter, once fully made we found it impossible to lift to upright position as it was too heavy. We went away for a couple of hours then had another go and managed to get it upright. It was rather a challenge to make it and screws on bottom of wardrobe have lifted the wood but its hidden inside so no problem, not as easy as I thought. 24 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Such a 'Grown Up' piece of furniture Such lovely solid furniture that will last and has style with such a perfect finish. My friends who have seen it love it and a couple have asked me for the details so they can consider purchasing some for themselves. A thoroughly good buy. 15 September 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very poor quality - extensive damage On delivery, the wardrobe front frame (above the doors) was broken in two. After a lengthy phone call, I managed to arrange a replacement part (my rather naive presumption being that no other part would be damaged). Then, as an afterthought I decided to check the rest of the wardrobe and saw that the side was damaged badly, revealing the MDF 'contents'. Another phone later .... I cancelled my order, since I had zero confidence that a replacement would be any better. Arranging collection was not straightforward either. Was it very poor or non-existent quality control? Was it totally inadequate packaging? Or was it simply a poor quality product in the first place! 11 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by good solid wardrobe lovely solid well made item but you will certainly need 2 of you to put it together as the parts are big and bulky, but very easy to do. My only niggle is when you screw the magnets in to the shelf to hold the door close it is very close to the shelf edge and only can cause a crack in this area. Out of the 4 I done, 3 have had the cracks appear. Also this can occur when putting the back panel in as there are no pre drilled wholes so it only needs to go a little out to cause a crack to appear inside the wardrobe which is very noticable with the light colour. However apart from this I am very happy with them as they are a very good size and are solid once together. 26 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful wardrobe I was nervous having read the other reviews, but it is a lovely piece of furniture. I did have help putting it together - definitely needs two people from time to time, but well made, so no problems with parts fitting etc. I had no issues with bent / mismatched panels or holes in the wrong place, all went together perfectly. I particularly appreciated the fact the doors came fixed to the integral front piece - much stronger than normal hinges, looks better and I didn't have to do any of that messing on with fitting hinges and adjusting them. Highly recommended. 12 May 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor quality so we sent it back We had the following problems with this product: 1. Keyhole wasn't drilled out properly so the key didn't fit in; 2. Dented back panel (although this would've been hidden behind the wardrobe); 3. Lid was slightly different shade of ivory to the rest of the unit; 4. Lid didn't fit properly (by 1-2mm) so the corner started to crack as we tried to fit it; and 5. One of the brackets supporting the internal rail didn't match the pre-drilled holes. 09 January 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Broken top The top panel of our Downton wardrobe has two large cracks along the edge. These spoil the look of the wardrobe. 01 September 2012
