FAQS

Our customers are not standard, so neither are our sizes! So with you in mind, we Custom Manufacture all of your creations in our State of the Art production facility based in Churchtown, Dublin 14, where you are welcome to visit and see your creations in the making.

SKONs Sliding wardrobes are fitted all the way from the floor to the ceiling, no plinths at the top or the bottom like on hinged wardrobes, and because you are not limited to standard sizes, we use every inch of space available. Hinged Doors must open out into the room, therefore taking up extra floor space and limiting the amount of light for you to actually be able to see into the wardrobes. Sliding Wardrobes open clearly for you to see everything, and because you are not limited to the width of a hinged door to open, you have better opportunities for internal layout options.

Because SKON are cabinet makers, we know that some finishes should be provided as standard, and as a sign of our quality, customers should not have to pay extra for such standards. This is why SKON include a Full Floor, Back and Sides in every wardrobe that we install. This means that when we install your wardrobes your existing floor, and walls cannot be seen as the we only install full units. This makes a lot of difference to the structure and quality of finish. Something that most other companies try to charge you for. All SKON Drawers are soft closing, which mean that there is no slamming or waking others up in the morning when you are opening and closing drawers. Again, we do not charge extra for such a basic need for bedroom drawers.

Installing full Floor, back and sides in your wardrobes provides strength, durability and a high quality finish to your wardrobes, and SKON include this for all customers, for every wardrobe that we install for no extra cost….something that most other companies do not provide, or charge you extra for!
