Our customer scores give you an idea of what people think of a brand overall. They are calculated by combining how satisfied people are with a company and whether they would recommend it.

Our star ratings let us drill down into specifics of the buying process, looking at what areas companies are excelling at, and which they're letting customers down on.

To get the ratings, we asked people who have bought in the last two years (since July 2018), as well as those who bought between May 2010 and June 2018, to see how well Sharps' furniture stands the test of time.

Sharps built-in wardrobes

Flick through the image gallery below for a selection of Sharps' bespoke fitted wardrobes and matching furniture.

Sharps' range of fitted wardrobes, sliding doors, walk-in wardrobes and furniture are designed to cater for and make the most of any size or space, including awkwardly shaped areas.

Sharps' products and installation have a 12-year guarantee, where most other companies offer 10 years. Its products are all made in the UK, and it is responsible for the entire process, from design to installation.

Sharps fitted wardrobe doors

Sharps has four main wardrobe collections:

  • Essence: this classic collection is available in muted colours or wood effect.
  • Signature: more modern furniture
  • Three real wood ranges
  • Sliding door wardrobes

Sharps' Essence, Signature and real wood ranges use hinged doors. All of these doors and its drawers come with soft-close hinges as standard. 

If you're after sliding doors, you can have between one and five doors in a mix of colours and styles and different configurations. Its sliding doors can be mirrored, painted (in a pale colour, graphite or slate grey), wood effect or glazed. 

But don't feel you have to be limited with which material or colour you pick - you can choose between two to five panels for each door with different finishes on each (see an example in the gallery).

The doors are made to measure, and are weighted and adjusted during the fitting process to make sure they run smoothly. 

Its walk-in wardrobes can be left open, or can have hinged or sliding doors in eight finishes.

Sharps fitted wardrobe storage space

Sharps uses a front-frame system for all its wardrobes. This means the wardrobes don't come with sides, backs or tops, instead using the shape of your room to from wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling.

John Lewis and Hammonds also offer front-frame constructions, but both also sell a premium version with tops, sides and backs. 

Inside your wardrobes, Sharps has an extensive range of handy storage solutions. These include: corner wardrobes; pull-down and pull-out rails; pull-out shoe, trouser and tie racks; tie drawers; shoe and bag storage; pull-out mirrors; pigeon-hole shelves; hanging boot rails and jewellery drawers.

It's also got an option to store your TV behind closed doors. All of its designs can have lighting built into the wardrobes. Its 'glamour unit' is designed to store cosmetics and can have lighting and a mirror built in. 

Sharps fitted furniture design service

To start planning your fitted furniture with Sharps, you'll need to book a free design appointment. The designer will come to your home with samples so that you can start to plan your wardrobe configuration and style. 

They will wear the appropriate PPE and also keep socially distanced from you. Sharps is also asking staff to check their temperatures each morning before work.

Unlike any of the other companies we've reviewed, the Sharps' designer will hand-draw your design, rather than creating a 3D design. This will come once you have placed your order and a surveyor has visited to confirm the designs.

It doesn't have an online planning tool – you'll need to book a free design appointment to talk through your ideas and see them visualised as sketches. For inspiration, you can order a print or digital version of its brochure, or visit one of its many UK showrooms.

Sharps furniture delivery time

Sharps doesn't give an average time for delivery from order, but it does say that to avoid delays, its team promises to deliver everything needed for the installation before the day itself.

Sharps has a fully bespoke service, so you'll need to have your furniture designed, cut and installed by its team.

Sharps types of fitted furniture

As well as wardrobes, Sharps offers a range of additional fitted storage, including benches and overhead storage. It will also design children's bedroom storage, and has a Flexispace range that allows you to alter the heights of hanging rails and shelves as your child grows. 

Sharps also has a fitted office furniture service – where its designs can match some of its wardrobes. It can also design storage for awkward spaces, such as hallways and landings, under stairs, bay windows and alcoves.
