Reasons Why I Choose Bespoke Fitted Wardrobes

Wardrobes are furniture that we use every day. They are a staple of every bedroom and often found in other rooms of the house too! This means that it’s essential to have wardrobes that are spacious, organised and easy to use so that they make each day go smoothly. You’ve probably stumbled upon this blog post because you’re thinking about getting some fitted wardrobes, but you aren’t sure if they are worth it or not. Whether you are looking to upgrade your existing wardrobe or create a whole new wardrobe space, it’s important to get all the facts before making a decision. 

I recently got some fitted wardrobes of my own, and I have to say I absolutely love them!  A lot of my friends wonder why I bother having bespoke fitted wardrobes. They argue that the flat-pack ones are good enough, And well, maybe for some people, they are. And it’s true that they are a lot cheaper and more affordable. But for me, fitted wardrobes just made sense. Let me explain why! 

Extra Storage

The first reason is a pretty obvious one, but yes, fitted wardrobes provide you with a lot more storage space! This is particularly true if you choose bespoke fitted wardrobes because they can be tailored to any awkward-shaped nook and cranny in your home, creating extra space in areas that may otherwise have sat around unused!

Fitted wardrobes are made-to-measure based on the dimensions of your unique home. They can fill the room from floor to ceiling, making sure that every last centimetre is put to good use. I love how much extra space I have since I had my bespoke wardrobes fitted, and finally, I have a place to store all my things neatly! 

Custom Made

This is one of the reasons that really swayed me into buying some fitted wardrobes. If you’re looking for pre-made free-standing furniture, you can look for ages to find anything remotely similar to what you had in mind for your room. And usually, it’s never exactly what you wanted, so you end up compromising. Maybe the size is right, but they don’t make it in the colour you want. Or you want shelves, and it has drawers. It can be really frustrating trying to find the right piece of furniture for your needs.

But you don’t have those problems with bespoke wardrobes! These fitted wardrobes can be completely custom-made to suit your home and lifestyle. You have the freedom to choose from whatever size, colours, accessories and finishes you want so that every part of your wardrobe is tailored to you. My fitted wardrobes perfectly match my room in size, colour and style. They also have the right amount of space for everything I need to put in them. 

Better Organisation

As someone who struggles to stay organised, anything that helps me to keep things tidy and in their proper place is great to me. I love how my fitted wardrobes give me the option to give all my things their own designated space, from the TV, and my books, down to my clothes and shoes. Having everything organised also helps me to be more sustainable with the things I own and buy! When I can see everything neatly on display I can easily shop my wardrobe, rather than being wasteful and buying new clothes every time I think I have nothing to wear!

Bespoke wardrobes also give you the option to choose which accessories suit you best. For me, I like to have plenty of drawers, lots of clothing rails and space to hang my dresses. I also like to have different-sized shelves to fit different items.

Adds Value

Fitted wardrobes are an investment that can add value to your home. As I’m not planning to move out of my house anytime soon, this wasn’t top of my list of reasons for getting fitted wardrobes, but it is nice to know that if I ever do decide to move out, my money has not gone to waste! 

Most homes these days have a shocking lack of storage. This means that homes that have pre-existing storage solutions are highly sought after. If you make sure to choose high-quality well-made bespoke wardrobes, they are sure to increase the selling price of your home should you choose to put it on the market. 

Styles To Choose From

Another amazing reason I decided to go with fitted wardrobes is that there are so many styles to choose from! I really wanted my home to have a modern, sleek feel to it, and I was able to achieve that with bespoke wardrobes. Whether your home is classic, chic, cottage-core, or funky, fitted wardrobes give you the power to choose the right style to fit into your existing space. 

There are so many styles and types of wardrobes to choose from. You can have open wardrobes, sliding doors, hinged doors and if you want to be really decadent, even a walk-in wardrobe!

Less Dusting

Okay, this might seem like a bit of a lazy reason for choosing fitted wardrobes but hear me out! If you have or have had free-standing wardrobes or drawers in your home, you’ll probably agree with me that it’s a nightmare keeping them dust-free! Keeping the tops and sides of this free-standing furniture dust-free was a full-time job! Okay, I exaggerate… but either way, not having to dust the top and sides of my fitted wardrobes constantly is just another job off my weekly to-do list, and that’s a win in my book. With my fitted wardrobes, I just wipe down the wardrobe doors every now and then to keep them looking good! 

I Love My Fitted Wardrobes!
