What Makes The Appleby Oak Double Wardrobe with Mirrors Great?

Good wardrobe, very easy on the eye, but marred by a couple of aspects:1. The picture shows a wardrobe with plain glass, which would have matched our other one. However, the one which arrived has beveled edges on the mirrors, so does not match.2. When assembling the top front/sides/back onto the base, and when assembling the top piece, the back has a tenon for almost the full length. These tenons are obviously intended to slot into the mortises on top of the base and the back. However, when one fits them together in this manner, the screw slots in the front do not align with their intended screw inserts, so I have had to omit these leaving the assembly somewhat weaker. Had I lined the screws up, the mortise and tenon would not have aligned, and the parts would not have bedded together properly, leaving unsightly gaps - obviously not the right choice. What a shame that an otherwise quality piece should be marred by such a poor assembly/quality control. Makes me wonder whether the factory has ever tried assembling one themselves? Have the jigs become misaligned or wandered with time? Strongly recommend the manufacturer reviews this himself.

This is a beautiful and excellent quality wardrobe. It is spacious inside while not taking up too much space in the room. It arrived in good condition. Four screws were missing - luckily we live close to Homebase and could pop in to get them, as we only discovered they were missing once all the pieces were laid out over the floor and we were ready to assemble. The assembly went OK. We were very happy that the door hinges (indeed the whole door 'piece') were already professionally done as well as the lower part with the drawer. So assembly was straightforward, though some pieces (the doors) were really heavy - definitely needs two people and some patience. I would highly recommend this piece of furniture, but I think the workmanship was a bit let down by the organisation in the dispatch office that allowed it to be sent out with the critical screws missing. We also felt that more of the packaging should have been recyclable.

Flat pack furniture will never be the same - not a piece of MDF in sight! With the exception of the drawer base which comes as a complete unit everything else was put together easily. A beautiful piece of furniture, well crafted and designed. If a cottage dweller or with a property with a narrow/dogleg staircase consider using the Cotswold Company. This was purchased in the online sale with a wide Appleby Oak double wardrobe and have purchased matching bedside cabinets and drawers since due to the quality of the furniture and value for money. Customer service was good - there was one damaged part which was readily replaced. However the warehouse part of the operation sent 2 wrong parts before getting it right which took 10 days for the specific wardrobe to be up and operational! A shame they let the side down! The delivery company was absolutely excellent, with great communication and brilliant staff!

Having had this wardrobe for one week, I am very happy with its quality, not only does it look good, but also can feel the good quality of the wood, absolutely a 5 star product. I am a huge fan of the natural wood smell.The two packages came last Saturday with one corner of one package ripped, fortunately it was not damaged inside, it took one hour to build it with two people.It was quite easy, the only fallback was that the washers should be size M6*16 when connecting sideboard to base, if we used M6*14 washers according to the assembly instruction and the washers they provide it would be too small to install properly.The two door were not initially aligned after installing, but you just need to slightly prop up one side of the base. This is a really great product.

Smashing wardrobe. Well packaged and nothing was missing or damaged. Because of covid 19 it was left in my garage, so my husband and I had to carry it from there to an upstairs room! We unpacked it and were able to carry it, piece by piece. The most difficult part was the front containing doors and 2 mirrors, which could be easily damaged when uninstalled, but we did manage it eventually! Putting it together definitely takes 2 people and you need a stepladder to do the top. To get everything in the right position involves some skill as the predrilled holes need sliding into position in relation to the others to get it just right. It is better to use a screwdriver with an allen key bit as it's much faster! Comes with a choice of handles but I like the wood myself.

This is a handsome piece of furniture which looks really good in the bedroom. I particularly like the mirrored doors which give a useful full length reflection and avoids the need for a separate mirror. You definitely need two people to assemble it as the sections are heavy but it went together easily and the whole process took 45minutes including the unpacking. The wood is lovely and amazing value especially in the sale. Unfortunately I ordered mine a couple of days before the sale price reduced it by 100. The only small niggle is the quality of the fixings of the wood backing the mirrors on the inside of the doors which is a bit crude so I can only give 4 stars for build quality.

5

The wardrobe arrived on time in two very large and heavy boxes. It was extremely well packed and protected. It took two of us just over an hour to put together much easier and quicker than we expected. We used an electric drill with an Allen key attachment and saved loads of time. The wardrobe itself is of a very high quality and matches our other light oak furniture perfectly. It is very well made and solid which gives the feeling it being an expensive piece of furniture. I particularly like the two large mirrors which are not often found on oak wardrobes. I am thoroughly delighted with the wardrobe and would recommend it to anyone.

5

I am delighted with this wardrobe. It is sturdily built and looks very attractive with the double mirror doors. There is a good amount of hanging space and the bottom drawer is roomy. The first wardrobe that arrived had a broken mirror but the company sorted it out satisfactorily and arranged for the dispatch of a second wardrobe. I paid the additional fees for package removal and for assembly which was excellently done. I am glad I did, as I do not think I would have been able to assemble the wardrobe without assistance. I would thoroughly recommend the wardrobe and the services of Cotswold Company.

Hello I was Very pleased with my Appleby Oak Wardrobe, I paid to have the Wardrobe fitted and they made a reallygood job BUT it wasn't until they left I released the glass was Bevelled It looks FAB but didn't read on the spec it was. I was matching it up along one wall in my Bedroom with another bigger Wardrobe which was also Appleby which thematch was perfect BUT that one hasn't got the Bevelled glass I don't know if you would be able to change the glass to Bevelled on my other one or tell me where I could obtain this Bevelled Glass from so I can get them matching.MANY THANKS

The product was generally very good however the service and follow up were terrible,I was told six weeks from order, the goods were ordered in April and didn't receive till end of June, when they did arrive the ironmongery was insufficient I had to phone twice to get the missing parts in all this took a further two weeks and when it did arrive it still wasn't correct at this point I gave up and purchased screws from ironmongers. Although the product is generally good quality the service very much let it down and I certainly wouldn't order from Cotswold again.

5

Good quality wardrobe, worth the extra cost over other flat packed products. The delivery men were as described, friendly and efficient, taking the wardrobe upstairs with ease, unpacking and taking the packing away. Very easy to put together except the four screws at the bottom of the doorframe needed to be shortened by 1/8 of an inch, as they were bottoming, before pulling tight. Easy if you have a hacksaw and a vice, but might be a problem for some. Would thoroughly recommend this product, and the Cotswold Co.,to prospective customers.

I would have liked this wardrobe without the mirrors but they don't make it any more for some reason. With the mirrors it is very, very heavy and difficult to build. About 1 in 4 or 5 of the ready-made screw holes don't line up and you have to use an Allen key to turn them - really fiddly. It's also a too shallow for men's hangers to hang straight. Don't pay for the packaging removal service: the men won't take the packaging away for wardrobes and the volume of polystyrene and cardboard to be disposed of is enormous.

5

Really pleased with the wardrobe. The service was excellent including assembly as arranged. The mirrors on the doors help lighten a smallish room as well as being useful in themselves and the overall design is very attractive. It seems well constructed and is deep enough to hang shirts and suits without crushing. The depth of the drawer is obviously limited by the depth of the wardrobe but is still useful for a few items. I've ended up using it to store rolls of wrapping paper due to its width.

4

This is a lovely wardrobe and complements two Newark bookcases that I have also bought. However the instructions for putting together weren't good and one of the screw holes in the back of the wardrobe (thankfully out of sight) was in the wrong place. That said I would still recommend this item.I was contacted and the wardrobe was delivered on an earlier date, that was a plus, and the delivery people were very courteous and efficient

4

Ordered this for my spare room. The first one had to be returned because the workmanship was so poor which quality control had not picked up on. Scratches on doors, bits that didn't fit together properly and holes that were either too deep or too shallow. I contacted the company who very quickly replaced the wardrobe in a couple of days with minimum fuss. I am very pleased with this one as it is very sturdy and looks attractive.

3

The wardrobe appears to be of good quality but I have had problems with the doors which do not appear to fit properly - it appears the mechanism for closing them is not very reliable as it is a clip fastening. I mentioned this when the wardrobe was delivered and this was adjusted by the men who constructed the wardrobe as I had paid to have it assembled. It appears it will need continual adjustment to close properly.

5

The right hand-side had suffered a heavy impact that split it down the middle. For better or for worse I carried out a repair with a veneer on the inside rather than have the telephone calls etc. Obviously we remain upset as I doubt if it will take a move in the future. It was an evening delivery therefore was not spotted as the cardboard had been damaged in transit.

4

Good delivery and assembly. Good size and good quality oak which really suits the room. Only niggle is the doors, they were slightly different heights and assemblers adjusted saying it sometimes happens. They have since 'slipped' and are again slightly different heights, not much maybe 0.25 cm - most people won't notice but since I have it just niggles a bit!

5

What a stunning piece of furniture! I have never seen a solid oak wardrobe with mirror door before so I was so pleased to find this gem!! Purchased for my 11 year old daughter who is pleased to be able to check out her outfits before leaving the house!!!The quality is first class and the delivery men were so helpful and even took away all the packaging.

5

The wooden bar broke so the drawer wouldn't open. Had to get someone to take it apart and repair it and put it back together again, said it was a weakness there.Plus nothing was done about the damaged chest of drawers that was part of my order and ruined the carpet which I had to replace. All in all some products were ok but two were definitely not.

5

I am so pleased with this wardrobe, it looks great and is sturdy & well made, also I think very good value. Goes well with the matching chest of drawers and bedside table, bought at the same time. Would definitely recommend the Cotswold Company, items delivered om time & excellent customer service.

4

Disappointed that the panels are made of strips of oak stuck together, rather than made from one piece. One of the strips on the side of the wardrobe is a lot darker than the others, which makes it stand out. Overall it's a nice wardrobe, good build quality and sturdy once assembled.

4

After a delivery hiccup where the wardrobe turned up, but no screws, when we finally got it built a few days later, we're really pleased with it. Really easy to assemble. Looks simple and chic. Would love it even more if the hinges were hidden, but that's my personal taste.

4

Although the wardrobe came flat packed it was relatively easy to assemble once you got your head around the instructions. The only shame with this product was the mirror glass. It's full little marks that can be taken away with your finger nails but takes forever to do.

5

I'm very pleased with this. It feels weighty and well built and the bevelled mirrors are excellent. It's unobtrusively elegant. My one criticism is that there are places where the colour of the wood has not been well-matched from one section to another.

5

It looks lovely but I received 2 wardrobes not one. However I didnt get any base/draw unit so cant assemble. We are living with piles of clothes everywhere. I was told they would sort it promptly but heard nothing for two days. Everything else was lovely.

5

Very pleased with it. Put it together ourselves, very easy, but definitely needs two people - door section very heavy. Delivery team were great, couldn't get van up the lane so carried the boxes to the house to complete the delivery. Thanks guys!

3

Everything was very nice, it looks great in the room. However, I am dissapointed that the doors are crooked; the hooks, which the doors are supposed to lock in to and securely close, are bent and prevent the doors from being able to close properly.

5

Beautifully made wardrobe, with quality mirrors. The delivery and assembly was by two polite gentlemen, left no marks and removed all packaging. It seems like a nice solid piece of furniture - we are already thinking what to order next!

5

This is a beautiful piece of furniture and like everything at Cotswold Furniture beautifully produced. However, we didn't think much of the handles. We changed them for pewter ones which we bought ourselves which were much nicer.

3

Good quality wardrobe and I particulalrly enjoy the mirrors. Installation was not so good. Only after they left did I discover the two doors are not in alignment. Be sure to inspect the installation throughly before you sign off.

4

Very nice quality except drawer is week and I needed to strengthen. Overall very pleased with product although not as easy to get together as some reviews suggest. I particularly struggled with front panel and there is a gap.

4

Solid, good looking piece of furniture, and fairly easy to assemble. Delivery service was good. However, the instructions are slightly inaccurate. If you follow them you will never get the side panels in place.

5

A little surprised at only one Allan key which broke halfway through building . Maybe two would be better , or a stronger alan key ? The robe looks great , very heavy but it isn't moving anywhere .

5

Great product, really happy with it and easy to assemble. Delivery Team were helpful and communicated with us regarding delivery, which was helpful. Five stars all round as far as we are concerned.

5

I now have two Applebury oak double wardrobes and they are beautiful, well built,good value and practical wardrobes that really enhance your home. I am very pleased with my purchases.

5

Love this range! I bought multiple items for my bedroom, they look great together. Finish is beautifully smooth, even finished nicely in the drawers. Very happy to recommend.

5

The wardrobe arrived exactly as ordered and on time. The instructions for assembly were clear. The only thing wrong was that the screws for the draw handles were missing

See my comments on Appleby Chest of Drawers, good value for money, delivery etc. all as promised and yes I have returned and purchased two more items of oak furniture.

Good quality, sturdy piece of furniture. Well made and just as it said in the description. Looks better to me with metal handles than the wooden ones. A great buy.

4

Good quality materials and looks lovely now its made up, but putting the top half together did take some time and 2 people - more than 50 screws to put in!

4

Very prompt delivery. Easy to build apart from the doors frame-heavy and needs 2 persons to place in the right slot-. We are very happy with the product.

5
