Your guide to Schreiber fitted bedrooms
Choosing your fitted bedroom
Fitted bedrooms are a convenient way to give your bedrooms bags of style, character and charm, whilst giving you loads of useful storage space to boot. In this easy 10 step guide, we show you how to achieve the look you’re after and get the fitted bedroom of your dreams.
10 steps to achieving a beautiful fitted bedroom
1. How to decide on the look you want
From traditional fitted bedrooms to contemporary styles, Homebase offer a number of styling options, including Classic, Shaker, Accent and Slider designs, so you’re certain to find something that matches your individual style – take a look through our range for inspiration.
2. How to create a characterful bedroom
Classic styled fitted bedrooms are a great option if you’re looking to add traditional style and character to your home. Why not opt for oak and ivory finishes for clean, timeless elegance?
3. How to choose the correct style fitted bedroom
It’s a good idea to match the style of your fitted bedroom units to your interior design scheme and décor. Whilst contemporary, clean lines and modern, minimalist units will look great in new homes, they might not complement a room in a period property with original features.
4. Consider your space wisely
It might sound simple, but it’s really important to consider the space, and to measure up before you buy to ensure that you can fit everything into your bedroom. If you’re short on space, sliding wardrobes can help you to increase your storage without compromising on your living area.
5. Updating your bedroom
If you’re ready for a change, Homebase have a fantastic range of the latest contemporary fitted bedrooms to choose from, including stunning high gloss accents for the ultimate in urban chic and those with textured grains and clean lines for a modern, minimalistic look.
6. How to create the illusion of a larger space
If you’re short on space, mirrors are a great way of maximising light, and making rooms look larger than they are. For maximum impact, opt for mirrored, sliding doors in clean colours and with high gloss finishes for the last word in modern chic.
7. Choosing the right materials
At Homebase, you’ll find a huge range of material choices, including classic designs in oak, ivory, maple and walnut and more contemporary designs in high gloss, hot hued finishes, so you can achieve your perfect look.
8. Designing your dream bedroom
Before you start, think about what you want in terms of functionality – so you want to maximise hanging storage, or would you prefer extra drawers or a dressing table? Once you’ve got your wish list, you can get on with the exciting part of picking your colours, styles and finishes.

Do I need cornices, plinths and feet?
