Fitted bedrooms come in many forms. The most common fitted bedroom features furniture built into the room, including shelving, an armoire, and other storage units. Alternatively, it may refer to custom-designed furniture fitted to the exact specifications of the room. The latter option often involves custom-designing every piece of bedroom furniture, from tables to desks and bookshelves to headboards.
The two main benefits of fitted bedrooms are customization and convenience. Fitted bedroom furniture are customized to fit the room perfectly. Additionally, they give the occupant peace of mind as you don’t need to bring in extra bedroom furniture.
However, the two above are just some of the benefits. The following are other critical benefits of fitted bedrooms to consider if you’re thinking and fitting your bedroom furniture.
1. Utilize space
Fitted bedroom furniture allow for better space utilization in the bedroom. Unlike freestanding furniture, you can measure fitted furniture to fit the space perfectly with no wasted gaps. Think about fitted wardrobes, for instance. They fit in so nicely you may not even recognize they’re taking up space in the room.
Moreover, fitted furniture saves you the trouble of wondering whether you’re buying the correct units. This is a significant problem when purchasing standalone units. You never know whether you’re buying a unit too small or too big until you measure the room. The wardrobe is already installed with fitted furniture, so you don’t have to worry about the size.
2. Unlimited material and colors
Bespoke, fitted furniture can be produced with adornments made from various materials, such as wood grains, mirrors, marble, stainless steel, etc. They can also be hand-painted in over 130 Furrow and Ball colors. Thus, you can have just about any interior décor you want.
This is completely different from standalone furniture. Although you can still find standalone bedroom furniture in a wide range of finishes, issues such as bulkiness and whether they match existing (fitted) furniture often mean that your choices are limited. Typically, you can only bring colors and finishes that blend in with what’s already in the room.
3. Ready-made storage
Storage is a critical part of interior design. Without proper storage, you cannot achieve the desired décor. Fitted bedrooms come with ready storage spaces, so you don’t necessarily need additional storage solutions. This makes even more sense if you’re renting. You might not be able to bring in standalone wardrobes into a rental apartment. Thus, fitted furniture becomes a massive advantage.
The other advantage here is that fitted furniture provide more than enough storage without seeming to take up much space in your home. This is unlike standalone storage solutions that may end up creating a mess in the room.
4. Make use of awkward spaces
Designing a room can be very challenging. Sometimes the corners aren’t as straight as you’d like. Or, you might find that you have pockets of space left between items – space that you could put to good use. Fitted furniture can be beneficial here, too, as they help maximize space usage since they don’t leave any space to waste.
Remember that the fitted wardrobe can also help you hide the awkward spaces. For instance, if a corner in your bedroom is perfectly straight, building a wardrobe at that corner can help block the area from public view, thus restore the bedroom’s shape.
5. It’s a great way to update your décor
If you’ve been craving for a new look inside your bedroom, the chance to fit some of the furniture can be an opportunity to update the décor as well. You can completely change space utilization in the area and bring in new accents to give the area a whole new appearance.
Taking out the old standalone furniture and bringing in new units alone can breathe new life into the bedroom. But, you can go one step further and invest in a whole new decoration style, such as switching from a modern to a more classical décor.
6. It’s an opportunity to personalize
Personalized décor is such a great thing. It allows you to own the space. You can surround yourself only with items that appeal to you and leave out things that don’t add to your life. Personalization also puts you in control and makes future improvements much easier. Since you already know the colors and themes you like, it becomes easier to shop for accessories and furnishings too.
Fitted furniture give you a rare opportunity to personalize your bedroom. It’s a chance to take control of your life.
As you can see, the benefits of fitted bedrooms are endless. The only downside is that it requires a bit of space. Otherwise, the furniture may take up the entire room.
