The benefits of installing fitted furniture in your bedroom are endless. They maximise space, eliminate the need for dusting awkward nooks and crannies, make your home more saleable and provide excellent hiding places for a game of Sardines… to name a few!
Gone are the days of dated, magnolia bedside fitted cabinets dominating an entire bedroom wall. Nowadays, fitted furniture designers always have style and functionality in mind. So if you think your bedroom could benefit from some streamlined storage space, perhaps it’s time to consider a new bedroom storage solution.
At Grays, we fit beautiful, functional furniture in homes all over Norfolk and because of this, we know what looks great. Below are some of the most popular styles of fitted furniture we’re seeing at the moment:
Whether you opt for full-length mirrors stretching across all of the wardrobes, or just a couple of mirrors which fit neatly into the wooden panels, mirrored furniture adds a feeling of space by reflecting the natural light that flows in. Mirrored wardrobes look great in an urban home where space is limited – you won’t need a bulky standing mirror and can save wall space to hang your favourite artwork.
Mirrored wardrobes are perfect for getting ready; rather than everyone frantically squeezing around one small mirror before a night out, you can glam up together with plenty of space to spare. And, on a Sunday when you need to flush out the toxins, practice yoga in front of your beautiful mirrored wardrobe and keep an eye on the shape of your Downward Dog.
For a more traditional look, many of our customers go for painted wood in a shaker style. It feels relaxed and beachy but echoes back to the original fitted wardrobes we all remember from yesteryear. Unlike old-style fitted wardrobes, however, modern fitted furniture manufacturing techniques mean that they can fit in the most awkward of spaces. We often install furniture that neatly fits into jaunty alcoves or in rooms that are set in the eaves; both of which look seamless but still function perfectly.
Most opt to paint their shaker style wardrobes in a neutral colour but add interest by having mirrors on a couple of panels, as mentioned above. Another quirky idea is to change the wardrobe handles to colourful ceramic knobs – this will add uniqueness to a relatively classic design.
If you want your fitted wardrobes to have the wow factor, why not consider a colour block design? The wardrobes could all be in one bright colour or two contrasting colours to really make a statement. Or, for a truly dramatic look, go for an entirely black set of fitted wardrobes. You may think this could look too dark but trust us – for a relaxation room like a bedroom you can get away with this luxurious look.
For these impressive designs, you could go for either a high gloss or matte finish, whichever you think suits the style of your home best. The colour block style is very contemporary, so we’d recommend choosing a sliding door function for ultimate seamlessness – it’ll also maximise the space of your room!
