Get Modern Fitted Wardrobes Over Your Bed

You may remember that back in the '70s and '80s, fitted above-bed storage units were highly fashionable. Since then, designs have been modernised to offer sleek and functional over-bed storage that can be fitted into even small and awkwardly shaped spaces. Fitted over-the-bed wardrobes allow you to declutter your bedroom or guest room and make the most of all available space.

The combination of open and closed shelving, over-bed storage units, and wardrobes allows you to store clothing, footwear, linen, towels, duvets and blankets, and other items. You can neatly pack away items that you don’t need to access regularly (such as spare or winter bedding) in the over-bed built-in wardrobes while enjoying easy access to day-to-day items in the side wardrobes, shelves and drawers.

Whether you’re north or south of the Thames, we have lots of great storage ideas to utilise empty space above and beside your bed. If you’d like to see a little more of what we can do, simply download our brochure for plenty of ideas and inspiration.


Customise Your Over-the-Bed Unit

When it comes to over-the-bed storage, there are lots of customisation options. For example, you can choose from different combinations of hanging space and drawers or opt to have two bedside tables incorporated into the design. There is also the option for open or closed glass shelves and units, which can serve as storage or to display framed photos or ornaments. If you need help deciding on the best layout for your over-the-bed wardrobe, you can book a free design visit with one of our talented designers or visit our showroom in London.

You can further personalise your built-in wardrobes over bed by adding LED lights, mirrors, and various interior options such as pull-out shoe racks, jewellery drawers, and trouser hangers. The aim is to ensure that your over-the-bed wardrobe offers optimal functionality while providing a dash of luxury to your room.


Most Asked Questions about Over-the-Bed Wardrobes

1. What is over-the-bed storage?

- Over-the-bed storage (or an over-the-bed wardrobe) comprises fitted wardrobes, drawers and/or shelving on either side of the bed with cabinets fitted above the head of the bed to provide a linked storage unit.

2. Can I add mirrors to an over-the-bed unit?

- Yes, and in fact, mirrors can make a room appear larger. While it might seem a little unnecessary to put mirrors on the front of high-wall units, they are a great solution if you are concerned that fitting an over-the-bed wardrobe in your London property will make the room feel cramped.

3. How do I add storage space to a small bedroom?

- Over-the-bed storage ideas, such as cabinets and shelves, with end-of-bed options like storage trunks can provide valuable storage in a small bedroom, such as a flat in Hackney or a spare room in Streatham.

4. Can I add downlights to my over-bed unit?

- Downlights can be installed in over-bed units to make the bed brighter. If you don't have room for freestanding lamps, built-in lighting is great for reading in bed and for creating a warm ambiance in the evening.

5. Can the shelves be kept open in the over-bed unit?

- Recessed shelves behind the bed will provide plenty of storage space for books, framed photos and mementoes. If you add some clever lighting, the shelves will provide a beautiful focal point.
