We often spot social media posts that talk about “shopping local” or that a “small business owner does a happy dance” every time you buy. It’s true, we do (and we really should video Gary’s to share), however, we also know that when you are spending your hard earned money on a fitted wardrobe, our happy dance may not be the primary reason to buy a fitted wardrobe from us.
So why should you?
We’ve pulled together the main reasons below, so read on for all seven.
7 Reasons to Buy A Fitted Wardrobe from Millers
#1 We’re cheaper!
Yippee! We hear you say!
It’s not surprising that there can be an assumption that a bigger company will provide cheaper prices as they are able to scale their production and place a large volume of orders at a discount. However, as a fitted wardrobe needs to be custom measured, designed and built it is harder for the national companies to drill down on costs and they have larger overheads. We can not only compete but we can be cheaper too.
Fitted wardrobes are the perfect product for a company like us, where we like to provide a personalised, custom services. Each of our projects are priced to specifications, and they can easily be adjusted to suit budgets.
#2 Measured and constructed by our own team
While other national chains may outsource their fitting, our fitted wardrobes are all made to measure and constructed by our own local, talented joiners. They have a wealth of experience between them and as we believe in retaining talent, they are all long-term employees too.
Before making your final booking, we can advise which of the team will fit your wardrobes and provide you with examples of previous work. That way you can feel confident that you know who to expect on the day and that they will do a good job and clear up behind themselves as part of our standard service.
#3 We want you to come back to Millers again!
Specialist national companies can sometimes feel a little ‘faceless’ and if you run into any issues, it can be difficult to navigate customer services. The reality is that it’s unlikely you’ll need another fitted wardrobe from them for some time (if at all) and thus there may not be as much focus on establishing a long-term relationship.
At Millers in addition to our fitted wardrobe range, we can provide flooring and furnishings for your whole home. We care about providing a more personal approach and one that is tailored to you and your home.

#4 Our materials are all first class.
We source our materials from a Scottish manufacturer who uses materials that comply with ISO 9000:2001.
Our units are mostly built using MFC (Melamine Faced Chipboard); it has a dense outer core which provides great protection against impact and a coarse inner core which and gives the best stability to fixings. MFC is also far more environmentally friendly and better for you than the likes of MDF which contains formaldehyde.
#5 We don’t believe in ‘chasing’ sales
When you talk to us about your requirements, our priority is for you to never feel pressured to make a purchase. Fitted wardrobes are a large investment and one that you want to get right. That’s why, like all of our products and services, our team are not paid based on commission.
We provide a free design service for all of our fitted wardrobes as standard and we want you to take your time with your decision so that you’re 100% happy with your decision.
We recommend that you come in and view our display wardrobes as many times as you’d like so that you feel confident about your layout and colour selections.
#6 We offer a complete project management service
When choosing where to place a fitted wardrobe we often find that customers need to adapt or move other room features such as light switches, skirting boards and wall-mounted TV’s.
Many customers, therefore, choose to redecorate at the same time and/or have a new carpet fitted.
Organising deliveries and tradesmen can be difficult, so we can help you take care of everything using our network of local traders. This ensures the job is as straightforward as possible for you and you can quickly start using that dream bedroom!
#7 After sales care as standard
We pride ourselves on our high level of workmanship. However if for any reason you are unhappy with the final results we will make it our priority to get it corrected.
We also carry a 5 year guarantee on all fitted wardrobes helping to give you additional peace of mind.
If you’re reading this, you’re probably trying to figure out which fitted wardrobe company is the right fit for you. We get it. Choosing someone to create your perfect space is a big deal. But while we are proud of the work that we do but don’t intend for this blog to be ‘boastful’.
Instead, it’s to clarify a common misconception that buying from a smaller business, can mean paying more and having less choice.
