What’s Good About Fitted Bedroom Furniture?
Here at Mayfield Interiors, Altrincham, we often get asked: what are the advantages of having fitted bedroom furniture?
We design and fit sliding wardrobes doors and stunning fitted bedroom furniture in the Manchester area.
Traditional to modern, heritage to contemporary, our family-run business has over 20 years’ experience and we work alongside Hepplewhite, one of the UK’s leading fitted bedroom furniture manufactures.
Our work is truly bespoke for the best, made-to-measure bedroom furniture on the market.
Old and New Properties …
New builds tend to include regular-shaped rooms, which can be easy to decorate but, in some ways, lack imagination and character.
We can make the most of these straightforward dimensions by adding superbly fitted furniture that will not only stand the best of time but will also be an excellent investment if you ever come to sell your home.
For heritage or period properties, the challenge is to use all the alcoves, chimneys breasts and sloping ceilings in the best way possible for your storage, shelving, cupboard and wardrobe requirements.
What about wardrobes?
Wardrobes are a necessary storage space for clothes and shoes, whether they are part of your bedroom or if you have separate dressing room.
The last thing you want is crumpled, creased clothes and wardrobe doors that open out, take up too much room and block the light coming into your bedroom.
Sliding wardrobes doors can be fitted into most bedrooms and they allow for style coupled with practicality.
Smooth door movement means less frustration and a tidier room!
If your wardrobes are full length (i.e. from the ceiling to the floor) this means you can hang garments such as gowns, coats and trouser without the need to fold them.
They are also kept out of direct sunlight, so your clothes don’t become faded.
For tall rooms, full length wardrobes mean you can also have space the clever storage for shoes, belts and other accessories.
Fitted wardrobes remove the hassle of those gruesome gaps that you can’t clean easily, no matter how sophisticated our vacuum cleaner might be!
If you’ve got free standing wardrobes and they are positioned in alcoves, now’s the time to think about having them removed and having fitted wardrobes put in their place.
Space Saving and Storage Ideas
As we live in the UK, we need to have seasonal clothing for spring, summer, autumn and winter.
This means you need effective, hidden storage when it’s time to pack away the winter woollies in favour of cooler clothing.
By making the most of your wardrobe space, this means you can have a committed wardrobe for winter garments along with another wardrobe or sufficient space for summer ones.
Or you could have effective, hidden-from-view storage shelves so clothes can be put away neatly until needed.
If you have wardrobes fitted with sliding doors, just think of the floor space you’ll save! No longer any need to curse the lack of space between the open door and the edge of the bed.
Bespoke, Tailor Made Just for You
You might find it surprising that bespoke, made-to-measure, tailor-made wardrobes can be more cost effective.
Fitted furniture lasts longer with less wear and tear.
You can also update the colour or finish of the doors of your fitted wardrobe if ever you fancy a change of décor.
When you come to sell your home, a purchaser will also see you’ve taken care of your home, made the most of the space it has got. They also will see that apart from possibly a new colour scheme, nothing else needs to be done.
We can also advise as to the many little tricks we’ve learned along the way!
Mirrored doors can make a small bedroom seem much larger, for example.
And if sliding doors can’t be fitted, we can help you decide if bi-fold doors might be a good choice for you.
Bedrooms also tend to need more storage space than other rooms; this can be for different bedding types such as winter and summer duvets and spare bed linen. After all, these all need to go somewhere, and it should be hidden from view.
Costs and How to Prepare
Mayfield Interiors are happy to prepare a quote for you for both fitted wardrobes and for their fitted bedroom ranges, which includes chests of drawers, dressing units, bedheads, bedside cabinets and more.

What Happens Next
Once you’re happy with our designs and the costs, we then make a date to come and do the installation.
We will advise you as to what needs removing from the bedroom and in which order we’ll tackle it before we begin.
If it is a full bedroom makeover, including joinery and decorating, we can tackle all of it however you might need to use another room for sleeping purposes on a temporary basis.
Items we will check include whether the floor is level, the height of your ceiling, skirting boards, coving and light fittings.
We also consider as to where your electric sockets are positioned, and whether we can come up with clever concealments to hide unsightly plugs and wires.
