Your wardrobe is an important piece of bedroom furniture. Its role as an organiser and a storage solution in your bedroom is unparalleled, so it’s important to find the right size, style and interior layout for your wardrobe. Here at Ashford Kitchens & Interiors, we think that your wardrobe choice should be one of the first decisions you make when planning a bedroom renovation because it will impact the look and feel of the entire room.
There are so many different design options to choose from when it comes to wardrobes and it’s key to find a solution that suits your needs. Our experienced team would always recommend that you consider installing a fitted wardrobe, rather than a freestanding one, if your budget allows you to. A fitted wardrobe will be built specifically for your bedroom and it’s an excellent choice for any sized space. Contemporary fitted wardrobes offer a series of benefits over freestanding wardrobes, including;
Use The Space in Your Bedroom
While freestanding wardrobes tend to be smaller than fitted wardrobes, they can take up a lot of unnecessary space. Not only are they bulky in their design, but they also leave gaps between the ceiling and the floor, creating dead space that you won’t be able to use efficiently. No matter how many storage boxes you purchase to place on top or underneath your freestanding wardrobe, they will typically be difficult to access and you might not really use them.
On the other hand, fitted wardrobes are just that, fitted. They are designed to fit from wall to wall and floor to ceiling, ensuring that every inch of space they take up is put to work. As a result, there is no such thing as dead space and you can take full advantage of every inch of storage space. There will be a place for everything in your contemporary fitted wardrobe, so there is no need for plastic storage containers.
Keep Your Clothes Organised
It can be difficult to keep your wardrobe organised, particularly if you’re busy, and it’s easy for this storage solution to get cluttered with clothes, shoes and accessories. Designing a wardrobe that works for your needs is very beneficial and a contemporary fitted wardrobe offers you the opportunity to create the perfect organisational system. Completely tailored to your needs, you can have the shelves, rails and drawers you need to organise your belongings.
Not only does this give you the dedicated spaces you need to store your clothes but it also makes it easy to sort, fold and hang them. Designing a storage solution that works best for the type of clothes you own makes it easy to keep your wardrobe organised. For example, if you need more hanging space for your dresses, skirts and formalwear, then this can be planned into your contemporary fitted wardrobe. With the right layout, it couldn’t be easier to transition from a messy floordrobe to a tidy wardrobe and you’ll never run out of space again.
Design the Wardrobe to Meet Your Needs
The interior layout of your fitted wardrobe isn’t the only thing that you get to control. Every aspect of a wardrobe design is tailorable to your needs. This includes the location of installation, the size and the overall style. Some elements of the design will be dependent on your storage requirements or the size of your bedroom, but others will be dependent on your personal taste and aesthetic preferences for your bedroom furniture.
One of the best things about installing a contemporary fitted wardrobe is how many design options are available. Some of our clients choose to have mirrors on the front of their fitted wardrobes, which helps to save wall space and bounce light around the room. Yet, others choose to create a more traditional appearance with shaker-style doors that complement their panelled walls. This style has become increasingly popular in the last few years and it’s something our team would be happy to create for you, if that’s what you’re interested in.
Make the Most of Awkward Spaces
Some bedrooms are just awkward, they’re awkward sizes and awkward shapes and this makes them almost impossible to purchase furniture for. Trying to find an off-the-shelf, freestanding wardrobe can be incredibly difficult and a bespoke, fitted wardrobe is a much better option. Your contemporary fitted wardrobe can be designed to make the most of your awkward spaces. It can be built-in around your sloping eaves, your alcoves or corner spaces, allowing you to properly take advantage of the space that you have.
Having a fitted wardrobe can provide you with more floor space and wall space for other bedroom essentials in even the most awkward bedrooms. If you want to make the most of every inch of your bedroom, then you’ll want to skip the freestanding wardrobes entirely and go straight to installing a contemporary fitted wardrobe. Our team can create a unique design that works with any architectural features or abnormalities, ensuring a perfect fit.
Add Value to Your House
A fitted wardrobe is an investment, it will be made with high-quality materials and won’t need to be replaced any time soon. Since it’s built into your bedroom, a fitted wardrobe can’t be taken with you when you move home and this can sometimes be off-putting. However, just because you can’t take it with you doesn’t mean that it isn’t worth making the investment.
Contemporary fitted wardrobes can help to make your house more desirable to prospective buyers. Not only does a fitted wardrobe benefit you in the short term, but it also helps to increase the value of your property in the long run. The fitted wardrobes that we design here at Ashford Kitchens & Interiors are second to none. Our skilled craftsmanship ensures you receive the highest quality wardrobe and our work will stand the test of time. So no matter when you choose to sell your property, your contemporary fitted wardrobe will still be beneficial for you.
