The Benefits Of Investing In A Fitted Bedroom

From struggling to navigate a cramped layout to simply running out of storage, creating a beautiful and practical bedroom isn’t as easy as it seems. With so many items to find a home for, striking the right balance between style and functionality can be challenging. That’s where fitted bedrooms come in! Fitted furniture can solve these common problems, helping you create a bedroom that’s as enjoyable when it comes to relaxing as it is when getting ready in the morning. At Mike Hughes Fitted Interiors, we’ve been helping clients in Barrow-in-Furness and throughout the South Lakes transform their bedrooms for over 35 years. From streamlining daily tasks to capturing your personal style, we’ve seen the benefits of opting for a fitted bedroom first-hand. Below, we’ll explore some of these fantastic benefits in more detail.


What Is A Fitted Bedroom?

The term fitted bedroom refers to an interior that includes built-in furniture such as wardrobes, bedside tables, and drawer sets. This ‘fitted’ furniture is generally tailored to the exact dimensions of your room and offers lots of opportunities for personalisation. Not all elements of a fitted bedroom are necessarily built-in. For example, you might opt for fitted wardrobes and freestanding bedside tables or a standalone dresser. Wardrobes are one of the most popular items of fitted bedroom furniture.

The Benefits of Fitted Bedrooms

Streamline Your Space

One of the key benefits of fitted bedroom furniture is its ability to streamline your space. Traditional furniture, though good looking and functional, is only available in fixed sizes, which can result in wasted space. Furthermore, incorporating multiple pieces of bulky freestanding furniture into your design can leave your bedroom feeling cramped and overwhelmed.

Fitted bedrooms, on the other hand, are specifically tailored to the dimensions and architectural quirks of your room. They take every alcove and corner into account, turning potentially wasted space into valuable, usable areas. Utilising every inch of space should eliminate the need for chunky freestanding pieces of furniture, streamlining your layout, opening up your floor space, and organising your clothes ready for dressing.

Fitted furniture can not only streamline your bedroom practically but also bring a much sleeker and more cohesive look to your interior. Continuing your cabinetry from wall-to-wall or floor-to-ceiling and introducing the same finish throughout will leave your bedroom looking spacious, calming, and sophisticated. There are also deeper colour choices for a more vibrant feel.

Gain Extra Storage

Following this, fitted bedrooms inherently provide much more storage than traditional bedrooms. The bespoke, built-in nature of fitted furniture allows you to make the most of every bit of available space and introduce plenty of practical storage solutions. Furthermore, you can also customise the internal design of your furniture to your individual needs. For instance, a bespoke shelving area could be just what you need to display your favourite novels or ornaments. Or perhaps you could use somewhere to store your collection of designer shoes or handbags? With a fitted bedroom, you will not only gain additional storage space but also have the chance to tailor your storage to your specific requirements, resulting in an efficient and clutter-free place to unwind.


Tailored To Your Specific Needs

With a fitted bedroom, you can customise more than just your storage solutions. Since most fitted furniture is designed and crafted to order, you can tailor every element of your interior to your lifestyle and preferences. From beautiful bespoke dressing areas to quiet and contemplative reading nooks, there’s almost no limit to the number of ways you can personalise your space. Want shelving and hanging rails to suit your style, or perhaps a mirror inside your wardrobe door for dressing, a slimline drawer for your make-up, jewellery etc? Or even pull-down rails for a smaller person, and lighting options? With a fitted bedroom, these details can be integrated into your design. Plus, when you choose an experienced specialist company for your project, you can trust them to help you find the best layout and practical solutions to maximise your space in a way that works for you.

Designed to Capture Your Individual Style

One of the many appealing reasons to choose a fitted bedroom is how easy it is to create a design that truly captures your imagination and reflects your individual style. While furnishing a traditional bedroom involves piecing together various items and hoping they blend well, a fitted bedroom is designed from the ground up with your preferences in mind. When designing your bedroom, you will have the opportunity to select your favourite furniture style, finishes, and fittings. So, whether you’re looking for a classic bedroom to suit your home, or a sleek and minimal design in an elegant, neutral hue, you’ll find everything you need to realise your vision. The level of customisation offered by fitted bedroom furniture allows you to create a tranquil space that is beautifully and uniquely yours.


Hygienic & Easier To Clean

Trying to prevent dirt and dust from accumulating in the awkward spaces surrounding standalone pieces of furniture can be a hassle. Over time, this build-up of dust can affect air quality and cause problems for allergy sufferers. You won’t have this issue with fitted bedrooms. Since the furniture is built into the room, there are fewer gaps and hard-to-reach spaces where dust can gather. This means a simple, swift pass with a duster or vacuum cleaner is all it takes to keep your fitted bedroom fresh and clean.


Increase The Value Of Your Home

A well-designed, high quality fitted bedroom is not just a pleasure to live with. It can also add significant value to your home. By investing in a fitted bedroom, you’re enhancing the functionality and aesthetics of your room, and by extension, the overall appeal of your home.
