Why bespoke fitted wardrobes are the best choice for your children’s bedroom

When planning wardrobes and storage units for children’s bedrooms, Thomas Streeter of Acorn Bespoke Carpentry and Joinery explains why made-to-measure furniture is the ideal solution for family homes.

Bespoke fitted wardrobes maximise space in a small room

For many children their bedroom also doubles up as a playroom, so maximising the amount of available floor space they can play in is vital. Standard children’s bedroom furniture won’t make the best use of small or narrow spaces, which means children have less room to play.

Bespoke built in wardrobes can be handcrafted with a narrow depth, but right to the ceiling, so no space is lost overhead. Bespoke fitted storage can be designed to give everything a place from clothes to gadgets. This also helps to reduce the clutter and chaos in their room and creates a more relaxing environment to sleep in.

Bespoke made to measure wardrobes fit any shaped bedroom

Purpose-built fitted wardrobes are particularly useful for unusually shaped bedrooms and loft conversions. For example, if you have sloping eaves, an awkward alcove or uneven floor you can still have a wardrobe that fits perfectly. At Acorn Bespoke Carpentry and Joinery, we can turn even the tightest corner into fantastic bespoke storage space for your children’s clothes and belongings. Any little nook or cranny can be transformed into a valuable, usable area.

In any colour or finish to suit your home and your child

Traditional oak? Bright yellow? The beauty of bespoke fitted wardrobes is that you can have whatever look you want. Natural hardwood, lacquered veneer or any paint colour to suit your child and the interior style of your home.

Create a customised, versatile interior

The interior can be customised to reflect your child's personality and interests, with low accessible shelves for their toys, games and treasured belongings. The storage configurations can then be adapted as your little one grows and their clothes get bigger and their shoe collection expands.

Add playful touches and practical features

Children will love little design touches like large, fun handles, special hooks and pegs hung within their reach, colour LED lighting and features for their gadgets and games consoles. These details can easily be updated later on when their tastes and requirements change.

Safe, sturdy and secure

One of the benefits of fitted wardrobes which is often overlooked is their safety. If you have young children or pets, there is always a risk that freestanding furniture could topple if it is not fully secured. With bespoke fitted wardrobes, this simply isn’t possible and you can relax, without worrying about any tip over accidents.

Built to last and easy to use

Durability and ease of use is paramount in children’s furniture. At Acorn Bespoke Carpentry and Joinery, we only use the best quality Blum ironmongery for soft, easy closing doors, and drawers that can’t be pulled out on to a child. Everything is crafted with smooth finishes with no sharp edges.

“We love to build bespoke fitted furniture of exceptional quality for children’s bedrooms. Handcrafted furniture may be more expensive than mass produced items but our clients tell us our fitted wardrobes are worth the investment in terms of character, appeal and life-span,” says Thomas Streeter, Managing Director, Acorn Bespoke Carpentry and Joinery.
