What’s the average cost of a fitted bedroom?

The price of fitted bedrooms can vary considerably, as they’re made to measure to provide you with a set of built-in furniture that perfectly fits your room. That said, an average fitted bedroom will cost you around £2,500 – £3,000.

Obviously, the larger the bedroom and the more fitted furniture you want, the higher the price you’ll pay. In general, the main factors that will affect the cost of your fitted bedroom are:

  • Size of the room
  • Amount of fitted furniture
  • Materials and quality of the finish
  • The complexity of the room layout
  • Additional fixtures and fittings (e.g. special mouldings, integrated lighting, etc.).

Average labour cost for installing a fitted bedroom

The cost of materials for the fitted bedroom units will be the main cost of the project. However, it’s important to remember that you’ll have labour costs on top of that.

The average cost of labour for the installation of a new fitted bedroom is about £250 per day.

The amount of time it takes to carry out the installation will depend on the size and complexity of the built-in furniture you choose.

You’ll also need to check with the professional fitted bedroom installer whether they will dispose of any old furniture as part of the price, or if that’s an additional cost.

What are the benefits of installing a fitted bedroom in your home?

 Fitted bedroom with storageInstalling fitted bedroom furniture can bring a string of benefits that make the project more than worth the price you’ll pay.

Fitted bedrooms make use of all space, especially in homes with particularly small or large rooms that can often provide challenges for furnishings. Benefits include:

  • Organise your belongings with ease by installing internal storage units that suit your style and cater for your needs.
  • Add value to your home with quality fitted bedroom furniture that looks good and improves day-to-day life in the house.
  • A cohesive look and feel is easily achieved in rooms of any size, creating a more elegant, well-designed effect.
  • Styles available for all tastes and budgets, so you can always find fitted bedroom furniture to suit your home.

Types of fitted bedroom furniture

The main item that people think of when they discuss fitted bedroom furniture is the built-in wardrobe. As the largest and often most expensive, element it’s the one that will most affect the overall cost of your fitted bedroom.

In addition to fitted wardrobes, there are also several other pieces of built-in furniture that you might want to consider the prices of for your fitted bedroom project:

  • Over-bed storage
  • Corner units
  • End tables
  • Dressing table
  • Desk
  • Bookshelves
  • Bedside units

Types of fitted wardrobe for your bedroom

Bed with fitted wardrobe

As fitted wardrobes make up the majority of most fitted bedrooms, it’s important to know the costs of the different types of wardrobes available to you.

As with all costs in this guide, the prices shown are average for fitted bedroom wardrobes in the UK and vary depending on size, style and supplier.

Hinged door wardrobes

Many British homeowners opt for the traditional hinged door style for their fitted bedroom wardrobes. One of the main attractions of fitted wardrobes with standard hinged doors is the range of options available for their door designs, mouldings, drawers, and columns.

On average, a standard 3-door fitted bedroom wardrobe will cost in the region of £2,500 – £2,800.

Average 3-door fitted bedroom wardrobe cost: £2,650

Sliding door wardrobes

Fitted wardrobes with sliding doors are perfect for any bedroom, but particularly those short on space. Not only do they save space by not opening outwards, but many come with full-fronted mirrored doors that create a visual effect of increasing the size of the room.

Depending on the size, layout, material and finish, fitted bedroom wardrobes with sliding doors will cost around £2,800 – £6,600.

Average 3-section sliding fitted bedroom wardrobe cost: £3,200

Extra-wide wardrobes

For homeowners lucky enough to have space in large bedrooms, you’ll need to install extra-wide fitted wardrobes. Most commonly, those will be 6-door built-in wardrobes that range in price, usually around £4,800.

The overall cost will depend on the height and width of the wardrobe and the internal layout, and the exact style and quality of finish that you choose.

Useful fitted bedroom furniture checklist

  • Before you start planning, decide roughly how much money you want to spend as this will affect the style and quality of finishes you can afford.
  • Speak to local fitted wardrobe experts for professional advice and ideas for your space.
  • Clearly identify the bedroom characteristics (size, shape, layout, quirky features and irregular spaces, etc.) so that you know what you’re dealing with.
  • Consider using units that make the most of every space, such as over-the-bed units or corner wardrobes.
  • Think outside the box when it comes to storage and consider options that will work for you and your belongings, e.g. long hanging space for full-length garments or built-in shoe racks.
  • When hiring a professional tradesperson, always shop around for fair and competitive prices.
  • Always choose a local professional with experience in installing fitted bedroom furniture.
  • When asking for quotes, remember to clarify if removing old furniture is included in the price, if necessary.
