When considering a bedroom makeover, aside from style and colour, the main issue you need to think about is storage. After all, there is no use having a luxurious bedroom if there’s nowhere to put your belongings, aside from the bed or the floor. But what do you require as far as storage goes? It’s worth listing what you need to store in your bedroom and working out how much hanging/drawer space is required. Once you’ve done that, there are a few options to choose from.
We believe most bedrooms will benefit from fitted furniture. At The Liverpool Joinery Company, we specialise in building bespoke fitted bedrooms. From design to installation we will ensure that your bedroom suits your requirements – if you want more space for your shoes, so be it – if you’re more of a handbags kind of girl, we can make arrangements for that too. Not only this, but fitted furniture can hide awkward walls, uneven alcoves and ugly, out-of-proportion walls and provide a sleek, neat appearance.
If you are lucky enough to have a big bedroom, or have a spare room that needs using up, a walk-in wardrobe would be perfect. It is every woman’s dream to have a walk-in wardrobe, but here at The Liverpool Joinery company, we can make that dream a reality. Depending on the layout, you can either have a door leading to a walk-in wardrobe with open shelves and rails, or just a separate space with a traditional wardrobe.
The space under your bed should be used wisely. Even if you have ample cupboards, shoes and bags always find their way under there, so why not use it properly. Standard beds can be teamed with under bed baskets, but Divan beds come with draws attached already. The latest innovation in under-bed storage is the lift-up bed, where the entire slatted base can be raised to reveal a storage area the size of the whole bed.
If you’re far from a hoarder and don’t have that many clothes to store, or you just have limited space available, then freestanding drawers and wardrobes could be the best option. The latest trend is low, horizontal chests of drawers, which are great for storing bulky items such as blankets and thick jumpers. Slimline wardrobes are also good if your space is a little cramped. If built-in storage from The Liverpool Joinery Company isn’t possible, look for freestanding wardrobes with a minimum internal depth of around 50 cm. Any less than that and your hangers won’t fit in properly.
Of course, we believe fitted wardrobes are the best option. Our bedroom designs are not just made for style, we also make sure they are designed for practical use. With all of our designs, we ensure that all space is utilised to its full potential. Our bespoke designs ensure that even the smallest of spaces can be used for either storage or a feature.
