Your bedroom should be a place where you can relax, unwind and escape from the stresses of everyday life. Therefore, it should be comfortable, practical and high in quality. Here at Capital Bedrooms London, we are proud to provide our customers with the finest fitted bedrooms which meet all of your individual needs and requirements. Whether you are a homeowner, landlord or looking to sell your property, we work closely with you to help you plan, design and install the highest quality fitted bedroom furniture. There are plenty of different design choices which are available in a wide range of different colours and storage options to suit your personal tastes. Whether you prefer contemporary, modern or classic styles, you are sure to find a beautiful fitted bedroom which meets all of your needs.

The most important aspect of your bedroom is the space. For your bedroom to be functional and comfortable, you need sufficient space to move around without tight edges and clutter. A common problem with bedrooms is that the storage can be limited and many people squeeze their belongings into cabinets, wardrobes and even under their bed. This can make your bedroom appear disorganised and cluttered with very little space to move about. Fitted bedrooms can help to maximise your available space and increase your storage capacity for an organised, clutter-free environment.

At Capital Bedrooms London, we can help you create innovative storage solutions which optimise the valuable space within your bedroom. With a wide range of bespoke fitted furniture and floor to ceiling or wall to wall fitted wardrobes, finding your ideal storage solution has never been easier. You can even choose sliding wardrobe doors which are the perfect alternative to hinged doors as they save even more space in your bedroom. Fitted bedroom furniture can be altered to fit into almost any space, even awkward corners so no space is wasted. Another benefit of fitted bedroom furniture is that it is easy to clean and requires very little maintenance. This is because there are no gaps or dust traps which can gather dirt, making cleaning and quick simple.

A key benefit of a fitted bedroom is that it will be a lot more durable and sturdier than free-standing furniture. As the furniture cannot be tipped, nudged or moved around easily, it will be a lot safer and lowers the risk of injury. This is particularly beneficial if you have young children or pets within your home. Fitted bedroom furniture can withstand years of heavy use and will last a lot longer than free-standing furniture, making it a good investment for your home.

Fitted bedrooms are available in a choice of different budgets so you can find a bedroom you love within your price range. They are also a great option for homeowners or those looking to sell their property as it adds significant value to your home. With an extensive choice of different sizes, shapes, materials, designs and storage options, your fitted bedroom will be truly tailored to you.

If you would like any more information about our stunning fitted bedrooms, please do not hesitate to contact us here at Capital Bedrooms London. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have and give you expert advice about your upcoming bedroom project. We look forward to hearing from you.

Working The Room – Make Clever Use of Your Space

A few years ago, the BBC reported that Britain’s largest home, Wentworth Woodhouse in South Yorkshire, featuring 350 rooms was up for sale.

For those of us unable to stretch to the £8 million asking price for Wentworth Woodhouse, owning a property with lots of wide open space and multiple rooms remains, in reality,  a distant dream.  Astronomical property prices, particularly within the capital, mean that the average family home has 4.8 rooms (including one or two bedrooms).  In a recent survey, 48% of families reported that they are unable to socialise at home due to lack of space, let alone spare the space for a hobby room or office.

One Room – Two Uses

Taking the above into consideration, it may be that you’ve given up on the idea of having that home office or playroom altogether but, don’t despair, by making clever use of the rooms that you do have, it’s still possible to make dual use of your precious space.  The following guide will help you to transform your spare room into an office, playroom or even a dressing room with minimum fuss and effort.

Clear the Clutter

First, start by having a thorough clear out of the room – if it’s a spare bedroom at the moment then, chances are that this is the place where broken equipment and old clothes come to die.  Be ruthless about what you do and don’t need to keep in order to free up as much space as possible.   

Don’t Lose Sleep Over Space

In many cases, the original purpose of the room is that of a guest room – which means, of course, that you need a bed (unless you have the kind of guests who are happy on the floor!)  These days, there are numerous affordable options when it comes to bedding solutions, including sofa beds and portable folding beds.  Unless you particularly need sofa seating within the room, the best (and most economical) option is the handy foldable bed which can be quickly and easily wrapped up and stored when not in use.

If you’re going to be using the room as a home office, you can also get your hands on a foldable desk and chair so that you can easily swap out the bed and desk whenever you need to – perfect for those unexpected guests!

In the Closet

Aside from the bed, the one object which usually takes up the most space in a guest room is the wardrobe.  The average wardrobe is 24 inches deep which, within a small room, can make a huge difference – many UK spare rooms fit within the 75.35 square metre bracket and so those 24 inches is quite a chunk.  The best way to optimise the space in the room is to invest in a fitted wardrobe with sliding doors.  Surprisingly affordable, fitted wardrobes help to maximise the space in a room as well as looking great.

Who Says Wardrobes are Just for Clothes?

A fitted wardrobe can be designed to your own specifications in terms of storage sections – which means that it can be made to measure for your folding bed or desk, making the whole process effortless.

Making Room is Child’s Play

If you’re looking to repurpose your guest room as a part-time playroom, the first, clearing out stage is of paramount importance.  Think about the minimum that a guest will need (bed, side table and a space for clothing) and remove everything else in order to have as much floor space free as possible for your child to play and explore.

As with the home office, if you’re including a desk in your playroom, foldable versions can be found cheaply in most major furniture stores along with a child sized chair for rest time.  Your fitted wardrobe can be designed for quick storage of children’s furniture as well as games, toys and books so you’re ready for those overnight guests again in no time at all.

When creating your dual purpose room, make sure that you take a look at the decor.  Teddy bear wallpaper is great for a playroom but, for an adult guest room, not so much.  Try to stick to pleasant, neutral shades for the walls and carpet – you can always add portable pictures and ornaments in order to personalise the room for each of its identities.

Whatever your planning to use your room for, a fitted wardrobe is the ideal solution.  Elegant, spacious and versatile, a fitted wardrobe with sliding doors can help you to reclaim your precious space and make the most of your home.

9 Wardrobe Questions – You asked, We answered.

We’ve collected 9 of the most asked questions about wardrobes and given some very straightforward answers. We’re always happy to give advice on wardrobes and show you what options are available.

1) What should I have in my wardrobe?

That’s of course up to you. People have different preferences about what is hung up and what is folded. Sometimes questions arise about whether non-clothes items should be in your wardrobe such as watches or wallets. This is becoming easier to answer with modern wardrobe accessories that add a lot of practicality. A drawer or slide out tray for personal accessories is entirely possible, especially when the wardrobe has been made to fit the customer’s requirements.

2) Is my wardrobe too big?

Your wardrobe is more than just a storage place. Its purpose goes beyond being somewhere to just put things as it also serves to improve the room aesthetically. If you open your wardrobe and there’s a lot of space not being used, then it may seem to you that the wardrobe is too big. But, would the room look better if you somehow made it smaller? If you need the space for something else, and you can afford to have a smaller wardrobe, then as long as it still looks good, maybe your current wardrobe is too big.

3) Why is my wardrobe wobbly?

No design should allow the wardrobe to be intentionally wobbly. If it does, then either the wardrobe is poorly designed or there’s an issue in the construction. Sometimes the environment around the wardrobe can change structurally and this can affect the wardrobe but this is a less likely cause. A wobbly wardrobe can be dangerous as there’s a chance it could collapse or pieces could fall off that present obvious dangers to both adults and small children.

4) How do I clear my wardrobe?

People, tastes and fashions are all changing constantly so it’s important to keep on top of the contents of your wardrobe to ensure you’re not holding onto anything that you’re not going to wear again. With the exception of special clothes such as evening dresses or tuxedos, it’s worth applying the 90-day rule. If you haven’t worn it for 90 days and don’t plan to wear it in the next 90 days, it shouldn’t be kept. Of course, you’ll need to adjust this for seasonal trends but it’s a good way to rationalise what you have in a wardrobe.

5) How do I put together a minimalist wardrobe?

Minimalism relies on the principle of only keeping what is necessary. That doesn’t mean you have to throw away the bulk of your clothes to achieve a minimalist effect but rather find a way to store things in such a way that it doesn’t appear cluttered. This comes down to more than the amount of space being occupied but rather how the space is organised.

6) Should I paint wardrobes?

This comes down to more than colour. If you’re thinking about painting a wardrobe then it follows that there’s a change in design occurring in the room and it may be that it isn’t just colour that needs to change. Being able to paint wardrobes is a question of your painting ability, the materials being used and the purpose of the painting you intend to do. It’s generally more favourable to choose new wardrobes than to paint existing ones.

7) Are fitted wardrobes old fashioned?

Everybody has their own preferences but more people are turning to fitted wardrobes as a means of adding value to their bedroom space. Trends are changing too in the way people treat their homes. People who initially feel like they would like to move house for reasons relating to the property itself often find that a better solution for them is to remodel certain rooms for functionality. In the bedroom, a bespoke fitted wardrobe is a great way to use every inch of space practically whilst still looking impressive.

8) Do wardrobes need doors?

Put simply, no. There are no strict rules with wardrobes but as long as you’re happy for your clothing to be on display then there’s no reason why you must have doors. In fact, it can be a more sensible option when floor space is at a premium as the presence of doors requires some thinking about the space into which the doors are going to open.

Considering walk-in wardrobes, it makes less sense to use doors because one of the most attractive features of this type of wardrobe is the ability to see your clothes and choose what you’re going to wear from the selection that surrounds you.

9) Do wardrobes have to be fixed to the wall?

Fixing a wardrobe to the wall is a safety feature so it is important. However, doing this can be very discrete and there’s no reason for this fixing to be visible.

capital_blog_post

There are quite a lot of differences between a cupboard and a wardrobe, which includes the appearance, usage and placement of it.

A cupboard can be any piece of furniture used to store kitchen equipment, utensils or even display a collection of items like; plates, porcelain, religious items or even small pieces of clothing that can be folded.

Today wardrobes are a specific type of storage used to store up clothes, accessories etc. Cupboards are generally placed in living rooms or kitchens, while wardrobes are placed mostly in bedrooms.

It is easy to distinguish between a wardrobe and a cupboard.

In centuries past, the cupboard mostly had four doors and three drawers. In the modern times, a wardrobe may have one, two and may even have six doors. It’s larger than a cupboard and typically has a mirror attached to at least one of the doors.

A wardrobe which is a type of cupboard has evolved over the years. A wardrobe now mostly stores clothes, daily wear accessories and sometimes even has storage space for shoes and bags

Another important aspect in identifying between a wardrobe and a cupboard is its location.

Most cupboards are placed living rooms or kitchens where they are frequently visited by guests. Whereas wardrobes are mainly found in more private areas of the home like the bedroom.

A cupboard and wardrobe are both mainly used as storage furniture. Both mostly made of our wood, but a wardrobe is more stylish and come in a variety of colours and finish.

If you look more carefully at the features of both the storage units and identify their usage, it will help you in telling the difference between both the cupboard and a wardrobe.
