What is a fitted wardrobe?

A fitted wardrobe is made to furnish the space of your choice. It can be small and narrow or as high as the ceiling and span the width of the wall.  

One unique trait of the wardrobe is it will measure to any dimension no matter the shape of the walls and corners or if the ceiling is sloping.

Why Are Fitted Wardrobes Good for Small Rooms?

Fitted wardrobes are the modern equivalent to freestanding wardrobes. They are perfect for any room size, especially small rooms. 

That's because the fitted wardrobe maximises on space not often thought for storage. So even tiny bedrooms can benefit from having it.

What Fitted Wardrobe Should I Get? 

There are a variety of fitted wardrobes available. Your choice will depend on its function in the bedroom and the use of the room. 

You need to consider the size and shape of your bedroom, the internal storage options, and how you plan to access your things. Other furnishings in the bedroom also determine the amount of space that's left for the wardrobe.

Examples of the Best Wardrobes for Small Bedrooms:

Built-in wardrobes

They are similar to the fitted wardrobes. They don't have any particular shape or size but rather take up the contour of its allocated space.

Slim wardrobes 

Slim wardrobe designs don't occupy a lot of floor space and are, therefore, ideal for small bedrooms and narrow hallways—an excellent option for Londoners where space is often limited. 

Sliding wardrobes

Sliding wardrobe doors are used when space is a premium. If you need to save more floor space, the doors of this wardrobe enable you to do so. 

Not all the built-in bedroom designs work for small bedrooms. But with a little planning, you can adapt your wardrobe designs to suit a small bedroom.

Create Space in Your Small Bedroom by Updating Your Wardrobe

Wardrobes for small bedrooms in the UK are a needed piece of furniture. Since the 70s, the square footage of new homes has been shrinking, including that of the bedrooms.

More space is a value-added solution that increases the worth of your property. 

With the right updates on the wardrobe, the bedroom can feel bigger without needing to make any structural change.

A mirror will add depth to your small bedroom. Placing the mirror on your wardrobe door is useful in two ways:

  • It can act as a dressing mirror;
  • The reflection from the mirror brightens up the room and gives the illusion of space.

A mirrored wardrobe can also help bring a certain visual appeal to the bedroom. The reflection of light helps brighten the space.

Preserve the Bedroom Space with Sliding Wardrobe Doors

They are not only space savers but are also aesthetically pleasing. Opting for sliding doors for your fitted wardrobe is fitting for small bedrooms.  

For one, the door does not swing outward. There is no need to look for extra floor space to make sure the doors operate.

Furthermore, sliding doors are more durable and will seal off clothes and other bedroom accessories from getting dust and damage.

Have an Organised Storage Solution

Decluttering a small bedroom is not easy. Without a proper system of organisation, clutter can take over. 

A lack of storage only magnifies the situation. For a small bedroom, this can mean the difference between having free movement in your room.

There are a couple of ways to set up a fitted wardrobe to get the most out of the storage.

Build the Wardrobe in a Space with Awkward Dimensions

If your small bedroom is a converted loft, a corner room or one with nooks and protrusions, then it might be hard to fit furniture that isn't custom made. 

A built-in wardrobe is better for maximising space and storage. Examples of built-in wardrobe ideas are:

  • A corner wardrobe has the potential to create an internal shelving system by taking advantage of an underutilised part of the room.
  • Build around an empty nook or alcove to utilise the odd angles and convert it into an internal storage system.

Organise the Internal Storage System

Your internal storage system is the shelves, drawers and rail hangers that are common in any wardrobe.

With a small bedroom, the wardrobe space is less. Thus you need to be more efficient in how you use it.

  • Install wardrobe organisers like shelves, drawers, hooks, coat rails; 
  • Use dividers in your drawers to separate the different clothes;
  • Organise based on needs, with regular things being readily accessible;
  • Use boxes and baskets to keep away things that can't be hung or folded.


These fitted wardrobe ideas work for small bedrooms because they can be adapted regardless of the room size.
