With increasingly busy lives, we all crave a bedroom that we can retreat to. A place to de-stress and unwind from day to day life, just like those we see in those glossy magazines. However, in reality, one of the most common complaints from homeowners when it comes to their bedrooms is the lack of storage which causes chaos instead of calm. When looking for bedroom storage ideas, one simple way to boost your bedroom storage is with built-in/fitted wardrobes.
In this article, we share 8 benefits of fitted wardrobes and why they may be the solution you are looking for to create that tranquil, calm bedroom space.
8 Benefits of Fitted Wardrobes
#1 Fitted Wardrobes Will Make Your Mornings Less Stressful
Finding an outfit when your clothes are crammed into drawers, poorly laid out shelves or minimal hanging space is stressful. You can’t see what you actually have in your wardrobe and you probably end up wearing the same clothes time and time again because it’s too difficult to see what else you have.
A well designed fitted wardrobe can restore order to your closet space and help you rediscover long lost pieces. You’ll be starting your day on the right foot, creating that extra bit of time for that compulsory cup of coffee.
#2 You can choose interior fittings to suit your lifestyle
Love shoes? You can ensure there is enough space allocated to shoe racks to show off your collection rather than have them scrambled together at the bottom.
Have an amazing range of shirts and suits? You can tailor your interior to make them easy to sort through while giving plenty of space to your weekend casuals.
Whatever passion for clothing or accessories you have, there’s a wide variety of hanging rails, drawers, and shelves that will suit your own needs. No more compromising on standard wardrobe fixings!
#3 Fitted wardrobes will create more space out of your room
The average bedroom size in the UK has reduced dramatically over the past two decades so often by the time you’ve added a double bed, you are struggling to see where a chest of drawers, wardrobe and dressing table can be accommodated.
Unlike a free-standing wardrobe, with a fitted wardrobe, they can be measured to fit perfectly and you can maximise the floor space you have. Along with reducing clutter, they can fit in seamlessly into a room avoiding the overpowering look of stand-alone units.
If you also opt for sliding doors, you no longer need to fit furniture around door openings and if you choose mirror doors, these can further enhance the sense of space.

#4 They can quickly update your decor
A fitted wardrobe can be a great way to update your room and create a cohesive look. If you’ve been craving a new look, then ditching your old-fashioned furniture and replacing it with a sleek and stylish storage solution will help stop the feeling of being outdated.
#5 Fitted Wardrobes help hide the mess
We are creatures of habit, so no matter how strong our intentions are, there’s the potential that we’ll still be lazy when it comes to putting away our clothes.
Rather than living in denial, or continually promising yourself to adopt the Kon Mari folding methods, just embrace your tendencies and use the fitted wardrobe as a place to hide it all.
#6 They make the most of awkward spaces
Combed ceilings and hidden pipework can often mean that your room ends up a strange shape; making it difficult to furnish. A fitted wardrobe can be tailored to fit the full height of a room and hide these annoying waste areas.
Yes, even those tightest corners can be made into usable storage space with a fitted wardrobe. They can also take into account uneven floor levels too!
#7 You can adapt your choices to fit your budget
Whether it’s gloss, glass or fixings, there is now a full range of designs, styles, and finishes that you can choose from to match your budget.
#8 Fitted wardrobes are a good investment
While you may not be able to take them with you to a new home, home buyers place a premium on storage and it’s likely that you’ll recoup the investment made.
If you take time to choose durable, stylish fittings and doors, it’s likely that a buyer will recognise these as a bonus when buying a home.
