10 Reasons To Choose Fitted Furniture

Whether you’re moving into a new home or improving your existing space, the prospect of furniture shopping is exciting…

Then it gets overwhelming…Then frustrating.

There are so many options to choose from, so many styles, so many materials. The prices vary so widely, you don’t know whether to buy in store or online, the lead time is either four weeks, four months or four years and you’re so deep into reviews that you know more about door mechanisms and woodgrain quality than you ever cared to know. 

Look, we might be a bit biased, but we firmly believe that for most people, fitted furniture is the best option for their space. So if you’re currently in the exciting furniture research stage and you’ve stumbled upon this post, get ready because we’re going to convince you why fitted furniture is the best interior decision you can make, so you can avoid the overwhelm and frustration.

1. Extra storage

For the majority of people, the main reason why they opt for fitted furniture is the storage solution it provides. For example, inside a fitted wardrobe, you can add however many shelves, drawers and rails you need to hold your belongings and it can be concealed easily with chic sliding, hinged or bifold doors - whereas with standard wardrobes, you’re limited to the one rail or shelf that it comes with.

2. It's designed specifically for you, your taste and your lifestyle

People often don’t realise just how bespoke their fitted furniture can be. Sliderobes has a collection of colours, materials and finishes to choose from. How the wardrobe looks is your decision, right down to the door handles. Not only are there a variety of aesthetic choices, but the storage can be customised for your needs too - if you have tons of long coats and evening gowns, you can have a pull down hanging rail to properly store them or if you’re a shoe lover, tilted shoe racks will allow you to fit more in, in a way that keeps them in good condition.

3. You get to work with an expert designer

The design process for fitted furniture is a collaborative one. You’ll work directly with a designer who will listen to your needs, assess the space then create a solution. Your designer can be as hands off or hands on as you need - some people will know exactly what they want whilst others will relish the opportunity to use the knowledge and experience of our expert designers.

4. Well made and long lasting

When it comes to choosing furniture, you need to avoid making decisions based solely on the style; the quality of materials should be a deciding factor. With forty years of experience, we know a thing or two about quality to ensure your furniture stands the test of time and we’re so confident in that, that we offer a ten year guarantee. Fitted furniture is also properly installed. Instead of you sitting down with an instruction manual and screwdriver, with Sliderobes, your piece will be installed by a professional fitter.

5. Makes the most of your space

Most of the fitted solutions we create go from floor to ceiling, making the most of the height in your room, as well as the depth - unlike traditional wardrobes, fitted options don’t have to have a back panel that creates a gap between the wardrobe and the wall, wasting space.

6. Suitable for any room in your home

When most people think of fitted furniture, they often think of sliding wardrobes in a bedroom but it works in any room in the home, from built-in media units in the living room to integrated home office shelving.

7. Can be designed for awkward spaces

Homes are not built in standard sizes and easily square shapes, most of us have slopes, alcoves, chimney breasts or beams in our homes that create pockets of wasted space. With fitted furniture, it can be built around these awkward angles, to create more space in your home.

8. It's easier to keep your room clean

When furniture is made to measure to your space, it means there are no gaps that can collect clutter or dust. And when it’s made to your storage requirements, you can better organise your belongings inside the wardrobes or shelves.

9. It's affordable

The cost for your fitted furniture will depend on the size of the piece and the materials you desire but Sliderobes offers finance options like Buy Now Pay Later or 0% Finance to make payment more flexible and manageable.

10. It's an investment that adds value to your home

Fitted furniture is an investment but one that is so worth it, as you won’t have to replace it as frequently. And if you’re planning to sell your property, your fitted furniture can be an attraction, as storage space is a premium that prospective homebuyers are willing to pay for.
