SHOWROOM OPENING TIMES
A number of testimonials from Komandor Storage Solutions customers are presented below:
Having recently downsized to a cottage in Edinburgh, which literally had no storage we searched for an appropriate bespoke furniture installation service to solve our problem.
First of all we tried a well-known national supplier, then looked for a more local service, we came upon Komander.
We travelled to their showroom in Kirkcaldy were we met very helpful and informative staff ( Leanne, Ken and Peter) who gave us plenty of time to discuss our requirements.
We arranged for one of the team (Ken) to visit our house to discuss in detail what we required.
Ken explained various designs/products and he promptly drew up plans and costings of what we agreed upon.
There were a few alterations, by us and Ken adapted the drawings and after agreement ordered the furniture.
After waiting a few weeks the furniture arrived flat-packed, Ken introduced us to our fitter, a lovely skilful Polish Carpenter/Joiner called Woijeck, spelling probably wrong.
After a few days of non-stop work by Woijeck, we were very pleased by his meticulous standards and the quality of the product.
We were so pleased we ordered a second installation , equally pleased and now about to convert our garage into a dressing room which we will gladly have no hesitation in giving the work to Komander.

Once again, many thanks for your help and assistance throughout! Everyone loves the dressing room!
Just had fitted wardrobes put in daughter’s bedroom. Absolutely gorgeous. All staff – from office to fitters were very professional. We were kept informed of delivery schedules/fitting etc. Would highly recommend this company. Daughter LOVES her new room!!
Somethings are simply priceless!
We initially planned to extend our home and add 2 offices for our home-based business. However, we decided to look at our existing setup with some expert eyes to see if it could be designed in a way so that we have more storage and an office space we can work from. Ken looked at our setup and designed an office space to our requirements, which was delivered and installed as expected around 6 weeks later. It has totally transformed our home! We now have a dedicated office which takes all our equipment and computers. We even have space to add a seating area for clients to sit / sofa bed for guests staying over. The office – where do I start??? – is absolutely stunning. 2 work stations for both of us – each have a corner desk to work from, dedicated space for printers, and all our cables and discs. And we just slide the doors over when clients visit and the space is tidy! Komandor’s joiners worked tirelessly and accurately until it was all perfect. We cannot thank Komandor enough. We now spend more time in our office than in our living room. It’s the perfect solution!

We commissioned Komandor to fit a bespoke dressing room in our 17th Century Grade A listed home. The care and attention shown by Ken, Peter and their team of craftsmen ensured we have a high quality product and exact finish. Can’t recommend highly enough and plan to use again in the future when we upgrade our home-office.
From our fist approach to Komandor, they were very professional and walked us through the various options and took our initial thoughts into a full blown design for our bedroom storage requirements. The installation went as planned, on time and to budget. The planning upfront and site visits prior to the job commencing, meant that all the fine detail of the intricate fit out went well and we were 100% happy with the end result. The design looks good and has maximised our storage potential, which was important to us living in a property which is one hundred and twenty years old, with limited storage space. I would highly recommend using Komandor and would not hesitate in using Komandor again in the future.
As a small beauty salon whose business, team and services have grown over the 10 years in our current premises, we came to a point where we had to maximise on any unused space for storage within the premises. I contacted Komandor to ask if they might be able to help provide me with attractive yet practical storage solutions in the form of some sliding door / wardrobe type assembly. The team (– from front desk, to design team and fitting team) were friendly to deal with at all stages of the process and returned calls and emails very promptly, using visuals as explanation if needed. I had some fairly sketchy ideas of what I would like to include and every area I suggested was taken into careful consideration and implemented where possible. The design team also made other suggestions to best improve the project and maximise the space whilst keeping the finished product attractive and tidy. At the date of the actual fit of the product, the team arrived promptly at the premises as arranged and worked with minimal disruption to our busy day and left the site extremely clean, tidy and ready to be used.
Overall I was extremely happy with the whole experience working with Komandor and I would highly recommend the team and their product to anyone looking for good value, attractive storage solutions for home or business.
We are writing to thank you so much for the beautiful walk-in wardrobe you have provided for us in our newly built home.
It was important for us to install a quality product to go with the one-off quality house we have just finished building in the hills of Perthshire. Your product down to every last detail matches this statement, even to the screws which are all so well concealed. The finish is excellent with no sharp edges or parts which really do not work as we’ve found in some of the competitor products which are just as expensive, if not more. After researching for some considerable time it became apparent it was very difficult to find a manufacturer of a walk in wardrobe in Scotland, within travelling distance, to view and discuss the product, where the hanging rails and shelving just did not just look like the inside of a wardrobe without the external doors, otherwise we knew it would feel closed in once in the dressing room. With Komandor we were provided with a bespoke product where our Master Dressing Room still feels very spacious.
The choice of finishes on shelving, drawers, handles etc was numerous and the stress of making a very complex decision was taken away from us with your excellent recommendations, as it was very difficult to imagine how many rails, shelves, drawers etc one would need to cater for all our clothes. We ended up choosing a concrete finish laminate on the shelving and drawers which fitted in very well with our ultra contemporary house.
It was also very difficult to find a walk-in wardrobe manufacturer where the framing was not screwed to the floor, which is essential when you have a house with underfloor heating. Yet again Komandor had this problem resolved with their system. It looks totally uncluttered in its setting, and extremely strong.
If we were to provide one single but important tip on hanging clothes in a walk in wardrobe it would be to go out and spend a little more money on new clothes hangers in a single style and colour. Organise your clothes according to colour, style, jackets, tops, trousers and skirts. This final detail will show off your beautiful walk-in wardrobe to its full extent. It is now a pleasure going into this space and indulge oneself whilst getting ready for a day’s work or de-stress oneself before retiring at night.
In addition we wish to thank you for the work you did in providing us with a wall to wall sliding door wardrobe to our guest bedroom. We want our staying guests to feel special and this wardrobe certainly will help them feel this way. It was the only manufacturer we could find who offered real leather pig skin? as a surface cover to the sliding doors. We chose a pale whitish coloured? pigskin in one section of the 2/3rds mushroom coloured doors, just like displayed in the Kirkcaldy showroom. It looks so elegant and stylish. The carcass too is stunning in ….??grass finish laminate. Many friends have complimented us on this finish, and we haven’t seen this choice offered with any other wardrobe manufacturers. The choice of your metal profile edges of the doors, numerous finishes are excellent which just once again makes your product unique in the market and from a company which is right on our doorstep.
It was important for us be able to go into a showroom to see and touch the product we were to purchase and not just obtain this from some faceless company found on the Internet as we were spending a sizeable amount of money. Photos on the internet, which can be touched up do not allow one to make the correct judgement on a product like this. We were also concerned about any after sales servicing or if we want to make an addition later, by using a local company we know we can simply go into the showroom and discuss this with them further. Finally your company in Kirkcaldy has a “nothing is too much trouble” attitude which is rare to find these days and there was no pressure put on us to buy.
Once again we wish to thank you Komandor.
We are very happy with the three wardrobes fitted to our bedrooms. The professional service provided by your company is efficient and timely and the quality of the product is of extremely high standard. We are also impressed by the quality of the installation/fitting work. We wish you and your business future prosperity.
I am writing to say how pleased I am with my new wardrobes, which fit perfectly into an unusual space in my home.
I am delighted with the work carried out by Komandor, in that it was expertly carried out with specific attention to details. The design is stylish and practical with plenty of storage space. In addition, I felt they understood what I was looking for and didn’t try to sell me something I didn’t need, that would challenge my budget. The wardrobe has been well admired by my friends and family.
We are very pleased with the design, product and fitting of our new sliding door wardrobe from Komandor. The service from the Komandor team was excellent from helping us with the design through to fitting and completion. We received precisely the quality product and service we were promised at the outset, on time and at the price we agreed, everyone was friendly and we will have no hesitation in recommending the company to friends and relatives.
Mr and Mrs D Johnston
Just had Komandor fit 3 fitted wardrobes to my house, excellent quality materials and the very best fitters. This is the second house I’ve used Komandor, they are excellent from start to finish and after. From design stage, with their excellent design software to the expert, very friendly advice to fitting using guys who really know their job. I can’t recommend Komandor highly enough if you want bespoke, very high quality fitted furnishings. Very friendly and knowledgeable, if I had the money, I’d not only buy again, I’d invest my own money in the company, they are that good.
“Komandor provided a first class service from start to finish. The quality of the work was first class and I am delighted with the wardrobes. They even accommodated my last minute request to insert an extra mirror!
All the staff were extremely helpful and I have no hesitation in recommending the company for your extra storage needs. They are one of the best companies I have ever used.”
“We had Komandor install fitted wardrobes in one of our bedrooms recently and couldn’t be happier with the result. Incredibly good quality, excellent workmanship and my better half tells me that the installer couldn’t have been nicer to our ten month old whilst here. Will without question use again.”
My wife and I purchased an 1850’s, Grade A Listed. 3 Bedroom Georgian flat in Edinburgh City Centre back in 2014 in order to prepare for downsizing after our kids flew the nest. In 2017 we were ready to act on the plan. As part of our long term plan, we initiated a full interior and renovation project in order to get the place aligned to our needs and taste.
Scaling down from a 6 bedroom modern family home, storage was key to our requirements, particularly with respect to ensuring we could find a design and finish that would provide modern functionally whilst blending with the features and finishes of the whole interior design vision.
We went on the search for companies that would support our pedantic design requirements. I work in product design and commercialisation, so can be a real pedantic pain in the neck….especially when I’m paying. Initially we spoke to all the usual suspects, but we were unconvinced they would last the pace past the point of sale and as we were managing the project from the North East, it was important that the storage vendors could work effectively from a distance. In summary, we just didn’t trust them to provide us with the service necessary to deliver in alignment with our needs. We decided to fish around the internet and came across Komandor. We contacted Ken and within no time he was asking questions that we would expect from someone who knew what he needed to know to deliver what we wanted…..and not what he wanted to sell me.
We had three storage projects in play; a walk in wardrobe, that our main contractor was building the surround construction to accommodate, the conversion of WC into a utility storage/drying area and a built in wardrobe that had to house our boiler and fibre communications terminal. After giving Ken our first revision input specification, Ken ran some preliminary design work and provided associated quotes. The designs met the outline scope of the project, fell within budget and Ken was incredibly easy to work with. So, we decided to move forward, meeting Ken in his studio in Kirkcaldy. We should add our meeting was of normal working hours due to our schedule on that particular weekend.
During that meeting we got right into the detail. The walk in wardrobe was designed via an inventory that was going into it, the geometry available and the functionality. Ken provided valuable input to the design detail and we pretty much nailed it in our first pass. Due to the high ceilings and the period features of the flat, the built in wardrobe was a trickier as we pretty much advised Ken that it had to be as subtle as feasible (my words were invisible if I recall) as not to take anything away from the period features in the room. Specification was driven by the need to store the boiler, the geometry available, utilisation of the height available, the door function and the finish to blend with the floor. Ken was patient with us and we went through various design iterations before we finalised. The conversion of the WC into a utility storage/drying area provided different design challenges due to the confined space and the amount of functionality we trying to achieve within that space. Ken made good use of the height again in order to achieve our functional requirements and as a devil for detail with respect to the function of each drawer, pulley and door. We decided on a common finish as the walk in wardrobe as to standardise flavour and feel throughout. After a few design iterations, all our requirement inputs were met and we went to final quote stage. Komandor, on form, did not hike up the costs, the reality is Ken worked hard to provide options in the design detail to retain the costs of the original quote. The commercial continuity and professionalism, combined with the design and technical support for the product, validated our choice of project partner.
So, we pulled the trigger on purchase and fitting, delivery was on time. Ken and his fitting team worked in collaboration with our primary contractors, with no conflict or concerns. Post installation, Ken himself went out to inspect the works and proactively communicated progress through all the key stage gates of the project. An absolute pleasure to work with.
Ken and his team at Komandor were extremely professional, supportive, polite, caring and proactive during the full cycle of the project. The finished article exceeded our high expectations both from functional and a finish perspective.
We would highly recommend Ken and his team at Komandor for any size project. Our three projects all had their challenges but at no time during the process did we ever feel that Ken and the Komandor team were not in control of our needs. We wish Ken and his team all the very best and they can rest assured that we will be recommending them to our friends, family and colleagues.

A big thank you to Ken, Leanne, Jamie and all involved in the planning of my lovely new fitted wardrobe. Painting has been done and will soon be able to use the room again. Kind regards, Gina
We have contacted Ken and his team to bring a bit of freshness and modernity to our bedrooms. Ken was very helpful and keen on bringing new ideas and recommendations in order to make our rooms more functional and more esthetic. The fitters worked very cleanly and were perfectly on time. They also brought some nice inputs to make the whole design better and even more functional which was a really good surprise. We would definitely work again with Ken for our next project as we have been fully satisfied by his service.

We used Komandor to fit a media shelving unit and drop down bed for our spare room. Delighted with the professional service from design to fitting. Checked in with us afterwards to ensure everything was to our satisfaction and were able to add extra doors at our request. Room now looks great and couldn’t be happier. Would definitely recommend.
