Preventing condensation in fitted wardrobes

I'm planning to install fitted wardrobes to an external brick wall (which has cavity wall insulation), and I'm looking for suggestions as to how I can limit the condensation. One of the ways I'm considering is putting up a timber frame and sheeting the wall with foil backed insulation boards. I'd also install vents on the wardrobe doors. If anyone could any offer suggestions, it'd be greatly appreciated.
