Incorrrect dimensionsI was attracted to this wardrobe as it was stated as being 160cm tall, which is unusually low, but I am very short and my partner is in a wheelchair. All I wanted was a half height hanging space and some good drawers. It is actually in excess of 190cm tall. The base came pre-made, and the upper part was flat packed. One of the runners for one of the drawers is split, and the drawers are disappointingly only about half the depth of the wardrobe. The upper part was not very precisely manufactured, so it did not fit together as easily as it might.
I've put loads of flat packed furniture together over the years, and am quite adept at that sort of thing, which was a good job, as the instructions weren't clearly printed, and very optimistic. I gave up when I found the (pre-fitted) door hinges were not aligned and had to be adjusted (no mention of this in the instructions). Fortunately I had a joiner coming in the next day to do another job, and he sorted it out for me, lowered the hanging rail and fitted a top shelf.
On the plus side, it does look very nice, but I have a sneaking suspicion I could have bought something similar more cheaply.
Delivery was within the time stated by Dunelm, and the actual delivery was very good. The delivery company's organisation was a bit of a shambles though.
