Fitted Bedrooms, Yay or Nay?

There has been a bit of debate going on with me and my friend lately as to whether he should get a fitted bedroom installed in his bedroom. He’s looking for a solution to have some sliding wardrobe doors put in as well as a fitted desk built onto the side. The only real thing that is stopping him doing it is the cost. He was quoted a variety of different prices from a few different companies. The prices ranged from between £1200-£3600, big difference I know.

So let’s ignore cost for the moment, as it is what is is. Let’s look at some other reasons whether a fitted bedroom may be of use:

  1. They look good. It’s a made to measure service, meaning all of the furniture is the exact size it needs to be for the room. This means no empty space is wasted.
  2. The general finishing of the products used are generally quite high quality.
  3. Bespoke to your fashion. Whether it’s an oak look or a modern look you are going for, it can be built just for you

There are also some negatives to fitted bedrooms:

  1. The service can take time, you have to get somebody to come out and measure your room.
  2. The furniture then needs to be manufactured to your specifications which can take weeks.
  3. The furniture then needs to be properly installed by a professional to make sure everything is secured.
  4. Mistakes can happen and your made to measure furniture actually may not fit, giving more time for alterations.

Sliding wardrobe doors can be a great addition to a bedroom allowing more space to use for other things. Overall we believe that if a fitted bedroom is within your budget then go for it, but make sure to choose a reputable company such as Reflectalux Interiors.

Edit: In the end he went with it for a cost of £2000. Hurray!
