To make the most of the space, it’s a good idea to take time planning how you want your fitted bedroom to be and – most importantly – how you’re going to use it. Here are some of our top tips for planning your perfect fitted bedroom…
1. Review the space
Before you start thinking about wardrobes, cupboards, shelves and the rest, you need to understand the space that you’re working with. Are you replacing existing fitted wardrobes or other fitted furniture, or are you starting from scratch?
Take accurate measurements of the whole bedroom space, making note of any recesses or unusual layouts that you’ll need to factor in for your new fitted bedroom.
2. Think about storage
The great thing about fitted wardrobes is that they help you maximise the amount of storage you have in your bedroom. But storage comes in all shapes and sizes, so you need to think about what belongings you need to store so that you choose the right type of storage options for the fitted units.
Nowadays there are lots of options when it comes to fitted units, so you don’t just have to settle for hanging rails, shelves and drawers. You can now get pull-out laundry bins, fold down ironing boards and more.
3. Don’t underestimate your drawers
Drawers are incredibly useful for storing frequently used items, so make sure you plan enough drawer space in your fitted bedroom. You have the option of having standalone chests of drawers or building them into your fitted units – either exposed or hidden behind a door.
4. Choose the right rails for your clothes
You might be thinking a hanging rail is a hanging rail, but you’d be wrong. You want to consider the types of clothing you’ll be hanging and how much space you’ll need for each. You’ll want single rails for long items like dresses and trousers, but you can double up with double rails for shorter items like shirts and jackets.
If you’re not tall enough to reach a high rail, make sure you either have a step to hand or you can opt for a pull-down hanging rail to give you easy access to all your clothes.
5. Get the right lighting
Whether it’s motion-sensing LED lights in the wardrobe interiors, or flattering illuminated mirrors for your dressing table, make sure you think about lighting. Modern fitted bedrooms come with a variety of lighting options so you can choose the style and colour to suit your personal taste.

Start with the bed
Being the biggest piece of furniture in most bedrooms, it’s important to start with the location of where you want your bed to be. Do you want it to face the window, or be tucked in an existing recess? Do you want to sleep in a corner or be able to have bedside tables on both sides? Once you know where your bed is going to be, you can plan the rest of your bedroom furniture around it.
3. Plan your wardrobe space
After your bed, your wardrobes will be the next most important piece of furniture to plan. Whether you’re going for a fitted wardrobe or standalone unit, make sure you think about the position of it in the room. How many clothes do you need to store in your wardrobes and what type of clothing are they? Understanding what your wardrobes will be used for will help plan the right units for your bedroom.
4. Use clever space saving features
These days there are some really clever bedroom designs that will help you save space, and give you some fun features for the room. Many of them will make use of awkward or unused space, such as under beds or on top of wardrobes.
