After your bed, wardrobes are probably the most important design choice you will make in your bedroom. You’ll use your wardrobe daily, and will want it to be not only stylish but practical and spacious enough to contain all of your clothes and accessories, which is why it is important to consider what would be the best fit for your bedroom and lifestyle.
Fitted wardrobes are just as they say, wardrobes that are built-in to a specific space in your room as a permanent fixture, unlike freestanding wardrobes which you are able to move about. Fitted wardrobes come with many benefits - not only are they fully customisable in a wide range of styles, colours and finishes, but they also make the most of the space available, fitting into awkward alcoves, sloping ceilings and around corners.
All of our fitted wardrobe doors are made to measure so that you can be confident that they will be tailored to fit your room perfectly. Even if you have the tightest of corners or a small space, there will be a design that is perfect for you. If you already have fitted wardrobes that are looking a little tired or are perhaps not to your design taste, you can just choose replacement doors. This can save you up to 50% of the cost of new wardrobes, simply by replacing the doors but keeping the original frames.
Fitted wardrobes bring with them the option to not only customise the outer wardrobe doors, but also the internal storage, giving you the freedom to design your built-in wardrobes exactly how you want them. Think about the storage you may need inside; hanging rails work well for long and short items of clothing that can hang freely. You may want internal drawers for items that fold or need to be tucked away. Shelves also work well within wardrobes to accommodate shoes or hat boxes.
We can make your dream bedroom a reality with our collection of fitted bedroom wardrobes. No matter what your design style, whether it's sleek and modern, nostalgic and traditional, stylish and contemporary, or timeless and classic, you’ll be sure to find the perfect design for your fitted bedroom wardrobes. Another important aspect to consider is colour. Gone are the days of a white or plain wood finish, and here at Dream Doors, we have an abundance of colour choices.
If you’re thinking about white wardrobes for your bedroom, Dream Doors have a wide range of styles that come in a white finish. White is a hugely versatile, neutral option, that works with all other colours and pairs well with other materials such as wood. White can be used to suit any design style, you’ll just need to think carefully about how you use it. High gloss whites paired with clean lines and smooth handles will result in a sleek, modern looking room. Opengrain white has a warm undertone, that creates a traditional style when paired with light wooden floors and pewter handles.
Cream is a soothing colour, that creates a warm and calming backdrop. It is a balanced neutral that is the perfect mix of white and brown. Cream is often thought of as a traditional colour that fits into classic, vintage settings. It can be particularly effective when combined with pastel tones, wood, or a panelled edge. Cream also works well in a modern setting. Think about using a gloss finish with a handleless push to open design and mix with other strong colours around the room, like blue or graphite.
Dark coloured furniture can create the illusion of being further away, making it appear smaller, which is why dark wardrobes usually work well in smaller spaces. You can be creative with dark colours - think matt graphite grey for modern spaces, dark woodgrain for contemporary rooms, or sumptuous burnt oak for traditional settings.
Blue may not be the first colour choice that springs to mind when choosing a wardrobe, but blue is actually a wonderfully versatile colour. A gorgeous duck egg blue, such as matt denim produces a soft colour that works well within traditional and contemporary settings. A baltic blue adds a surprising pop of colour to a room and works best within a modern design style with whites and metallic.
Grey Wardrobe Doors
Grey is a popular design choice as it acts as a flexible neutral and a great alternative to white. Grey is a sophisticated shade and adds a look of luxury to any room. Mix grey with metallic, exposed brick and dark woods for an industrial, contemporary look. Use a warm grey such as Stone, mixed with soft, cosy textures, pale woods and vintage pastels to create a traditional bedroom setting.
