How to fix these problems?

I wanted built in storage/wardrobes. I had guys here for a week and the job isn’t what I expected. They returning tomorrow to put on doors and rails but with a hanger it isn’t wide enough?. I need advice before they return

Tell them the issues before they do anymore work. It’s not too much to expect a wardrobe to take a hanger

Normally the minimum depth required for hanging space is 50cm. For more spacious hanging you want about 60cm depth.
Occasionally, due to the space constraints in a room, you have to use shallower depth cupboards. There are pull out hanging rails that go front to back and even hangers that you can put on a side to side hanging rail which allows clothes to hang front to back.
The first answer is correct though - if you have asked them to build a wardrobe with hanging space, unless there is restricted depth, they should have built the cupboards with enough depth.
