Finding The Perfect Spot

When it comes to designing the perfect bedroom, every detail matters. From the colour of the walls to the type of furniture, each element plays a significant role in creating a space that is both beautiful and functional. One question we often get asked at DAY & KNIGHT is: where should wardrobes be placed in a bedroom? As experts in building bespoke furniture, we can guide you through it.

1. Wardrobes as a Focal Point

A lot of homeowners like to make their wardrobes the star attraction in their bedroom design. By placing your wardrobe against a prominent wall, you’ll create that real wow factor. Imagine a beautiful handmade wardrobe, that’s got all the little details that make it special. It’ll be the first thing you notice when you step into the room. And putting it there doesn’t just add a touch of class, it makes it easier to grab your clothes and bits and pieces when you need them.

2. Maximising Space

Small bedrooms can be a challenge when it comes to space. But there are some tricks to make the most of it. One idea is to put the wardrobe in a corner, which frees up valuable floor space. If you have a room with a sloping ceiling, like an attic or loft, then bespoke fitted wardrobes in the eaves are an excellent way to use this often wasted space. This not only saves space but also makes the room feel cosy and efficient

3. Enhancing Natural Light

If you have a bedroom blessed with abundant natural light, consider placing your wardrobe strategically. Positioning it away from windows, or glass doors, can help maximise the amount of light that fills the room. This creates an airy and inviting atmosphere, making your bedroom feel even more spacious and bright.

4. Functional Zone Placement

In certain bedrooms, it can be beneficial to position the wardrobe in line with other functional areas such as dressing tables or bedside tables. This creates a balanced and convenient layout for accessing your daily essentials, making your bedroom a true sanctuary.

5. Customisation is Key

At DAY & KNIGHT, we believe in the power of customisation. Every bedroom is unique, and every homeowner has their own set of preferences and requirements.
