They say that summer is the most popular time for home refurbishment and that’s certainly what we thought when we called the builders in to re-render the outside of our home. Of course we didn’t bank on the rainiest June on record but then this wouldn’t be the UK without some weather-interrupted issues.
This being us, we’ve never got just one project on the go and currently the woodwork is being painted in one of our spare bedrooms, we’ve decided to repaint the dining room and still can’t get plans to re-do our bedroom out of our mind.
I’ve written before about our top floor bedroom, we’re lucky to have so much floor space since it’s a loft conversion but the space is used in the worst way possible leaving us with a large expanse of floor in the middle. We’ve got standalone wardrobes which the previous owners left and are in a tatty state but worst of all don’t even accommodate all our belongings so we’ve taken over the fitted wardrobes in one of the other spare rooms (which also need ripping out!)
I’ve been scouting around Pinterest for ideas and have thought about bespoke fitted bedrooms but on reflection if we want to reconfigure the space slightly and try to eke out a walk-in wardrobe area under the eaves then custom-made fitted wardrobes are the best solution to accommodate even the most awkward space (including our sloping ceilings!)
For us it’s all about making the best use of the space we have and looking at clever ways of getting creative to maximise the potential of our loft-floor bedroom.
Ultimately I love the idea that no matter whether we go for a modern fitted bedroom or leave it at fitted wardrobes, we’ll be able to find the right solution for us in a variety of materials, styles, finishes and colours.
What about your bedroom plans? Do you have fitted wardrobes or a smart and stylish storage solution?

In our previous home we had a really huge master bedroom it was more like a hotel suite, and we had built in floor to wall wardrobes all fitted with hanging and shelves. I loved it!!! But when we downsized we just had to go wit what the new home already had which is a walk in robe. It is still a good size, but besides a rail and one shelf it lacked places to put things. I have added two sets of drawers and brought some storage boxes for shoes etc.
I have fitted wardrobes with sliding doors, they are great and really worth the money. I could design what I wanted on the inside, so I have drawers, hanging space, folding space, etc. I

It’s definitely the way forward for us, it won’t be happening any time soon but I can’t wait to reconfigure our bedroom space X
