Doors & drawer fronts


Doors and drawer fronts are made in a variety of high quality, modern materials depending on the collection. 


Our premium Real Wood Collection consists of doors with solid wooden frames combined with real wood-veneered centre panels. This combination ensures a good solid door which won’t warp over a period of time.


The doors of our Signature and Essence Collections are made from deep router grade medium density fibreboard – a modern material highly valued for its profiling properties. This is finished with a high quality vinyl wrap to give a very durable, high quality finish.

Decorative details are most commonly made from medium density fibreboard as this super durable modern material can be perfectly profiled in a design to match the range.

Side panels and facings 


When making bespoke wardrobes, the side panels and facings are cut on site by the fitter to exactly fit the dimensions of the room. For this reason a high quality particleboard is used as it is the very best material for the job.


Unlike solid wood or fibreboard, this can easily be cut around intricate details such as skirting boards, coving or sloping ceilings and compared to some products it produces less dust on site, which is a real benefit to customers. The particleboard is coated in either a real wood veneer or a melamine face to perfectly match the doors.



When it comes to the materials used for a Sharps bespoke fitted wardrobe, a lot of thought has gone into it. We use the best quality, most practical and robust materials for the job in hand. Below is a breakdown of which materials are used for the individual parts of our wardrobes.
