The Journey from Unsightly to Beautiful with Fitted Bedroom Wardrobes
Fitted bedroom wardrobes have become the go-to choice for people who are looking to increase the storage space in their bedrooms. These wardrobes are reasonably priced and offer a lot of customisation options in areas like the choice of material, type of finish, the range of accessories and most importantly, the interior storage layout.
The last bit is important as it allows you to design the storage layout to suit the clothes, accessories, jewellery etc. that you own. So for instance, that stylish new hat you bought on sale or that pair of gorgeous shoes your spouse so cherishes but which cannot sit with the other footwear, can now be comfortably housed in a space within the fitted wardrobe.
That said, fitted bedroom wardrobes do play another role that is likely to be appreciated by people whose bedrooms are full of awkward places and shapes.
What are these awkward spaces?
Ungainly lofts, sharply sloped ceilings, and undefinably shaped corners are some simple examples of awkward spaces in bedrooms. Now, these are more common than most people would like to believe. Heck, a five-minute examination of your own bedroom can lead to some unpleasant surprises.
These awkward spaces do not look like a problem at the outset but come the time for designing or planning a storage layout and you are left with very little usable space to work with.
How do fitted bedroom wardrobes help?
The only sure shot way of overcoming and covering up such awkward spaces or spots is to plan your storage layout well. And by well, we mean getting an interior designer to get it done for you. This is a job for the experts and doubly so since we are talking about awkward bedroom spaces here.
The single most effective solution in a designer’s arsenal to combat such annoyances is a fitted bedroom design. To understand this better, let’s consider a couple of examples of ungainly bedroom spaces.
- Problematic alcoves & spaces – Now usually, alcoves and chimney breasts are wonderful additions to any house. But it’s anything but wonderful when you search for furniture that fits such a house. Freestanding wardrobes are not a good idea at all as they are terrible at making optimum use of available space.
- Sharply sloped ceilings & loft spaces – A common irritant is finding the right furniture for bedrooms with sloped ceilings. Similarly, owners of smaller houses often have no resort except converting the loft into a bedroom, thereby losing out on a large amount of storage space.
Each of these issues can be solved perfectly with fitted bedroom wardrobes. Designing a floor-to-ceiling custom wardrobe is a proven way of coping with alcoves and other awkward spaces. This design not only helps cover up the bedroom’s flaws but also gives you extra storage space. So what is cringe-inducing empty space with freestanding wardrobes becomes fine-looking storage space with fitted wardrobes.
A similar customised solution works for sloped ceilings and lofts in small houses, which means you can build a loft wardrobe into sloped ceilings and low attics. For sloped ceiling fitted wardrobes, pick from a range of hanging rails featuring pull down rails to help access your clothes effortlessly. To regular clothing rails, add storage solutions like shelves, pull-out racks, and soft-close drawers. These achieve the twin objectives of covering up your bedroom’s flaws while also enabling better utilisation of storage space.
Fitted bedroom wardrobes also offer hinged door wardrobes and sliding door wardrobes depending upon customer choice. These days wardrobes over the bed, bedside tables, bedside cabinets, shelving units, chest of drawers, dressing tables and bed headboards are common fitted wardrobes in bedrooms.
