Interior design trends change every year, and things regularly go in and out of fashion. Take for example dado rails which were found in most Victorian-built homes and are now making a comeback. As well as avocado bathroom suites that were everywhere in the 70s before losing popularity, to then become fashionable again in the 2020s! Here are some of the best interior trends we’ve seen so far in 2022…
Botanicals and Houseplants
Having plenty of plants, flowers, cacti and succulents growing in your home gives off a natural and healthy aura to your home, the colour of flora and fauna can create a great accessory colour to both light and dark decorated rooms. If you don’t have much of a green thumb, then another trendy choice is to opt for botanical decor instead! Whether it’s wallpaper, prints, wall art or fake plants, it’ll give your home that pop of colour you’re after and give your home a natural feel.
You heard it right, ironing your bedsheets and making your bed look uniform is out, and creating a lived-in and cosy look is in! Make your bedroom look like it is regularly slept in and is a cosy place to relax, unwind and hang out. Opt for natural fabrics like cotton bedding and a neutral colour palette like whites and light greys to make your bedroom look soft and comfortable. Contrasting colours such as a light wood effect with dark-painted furniture really makes a room pop, and that’s why it’s one of the biggest interior colour trends this year!
Gallery walls and hanging art prints are becoming ever-popular, whether it’s family photos or a cool design you found on Etsy or at a local art shop. It is a great idea to decorate your home with pictures and artwork that pops or blends with your interior design. You’ll be able to find all sorts of prints based on your taste and likes, from culinary prints to geographical art.
Not a fan of art? Wall decor is a great choice too!
Fitted Storage – With Which We Can Help!
Having your own unique, stylish and customised fitted storage such as wardrobes, dressers and bedside tables not only makes a bedroom look bigger, but it gives a premium look and feel that is absolutely timeless in every home. Fitted furniture is quickly becoming the trendiest thing to have in your home, not only this year but every year.
Have you started your design for your fitted wardrobe or you’re just thinking about what you’d use it for? The good news is that we’ve put together this little guide to help you plan the interior of your fitted wardrobe!
Here are some things you should consider:
It’s important to know how many shelves you might need in your fitted wardrobe, if any. Shelves are a great way to reduce clutter, especially if you usually hang large quantities of clothes. Having shelves in your fitted wardrobes mean you can fold up trousers, towels and other accessories without clogging up your rails with too many hangers. We can also create slanted shelves designed to store shoes, meaning you will no longer have to rummage around the bottom of your wardrobe!
Picture this: it’s 5 am, you’ve got an early start and the sun hasn’t come up yet. Everyone’s still in bed, but you need to get up and get dressed. Most of the time, you’d have to navigate your room with your phone torch to get ready for work, but the benefit of having LED lights or downlights in your wardrobe is that you can get ready in your wardrobe space, without worrying about waking anyone up, especially if you share a room with someone. Wardrobes are usually dark spaces so it means you can find clothes easily without having to search around too much.
We don’t just stock straight rails here at Made Bedrooms & Interiors. If you want a different look to your wardrobe, we have curved rails so you can make more use of the space. We can also put double rails in one compartment of your wardrobe (depending on the height of your walls) so that you have two levels of clothing. It’s also useful if you’re sharing your wardrobe with someone else, meaning there are plenty of rails for both of you!
Various Storage Solutions
Rails and shelving aren’t the only ways to style your wardrobe. If you’d prefer to hang jeans and trousers instead of folding them, you can opt for a trouser rack to be installed. We also have accessory drawers that are sectioned out, so you can neatly store belts, socks, watches and more.
We hope we’ve given you some ideas to think about for your fitted wardrobe interior! If you have any queries or need more help, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
Working from home isn’t exactly a new concept, there are some that have been doing this type of working style for many years. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced working-from-home as a very new way of life for thousands of workers across the UK.
So, here’s the thing. You’ve been working from home for almost two years now. You might be working from your spare bedroom, on a second-hand desk or on a desk you scrambled to purchase from that big Swedish furniture store in March 2020, when you were told to stay home from work. Or, maybe you’ve got your own office space, but it’s lacking a certain flair?
We can help! We aren’t just fitted wardrobe connoisseurs, we can also create and build your dream office space to your design and specification. Do you need a big desk to fit two, even three monitors? Do you also want bookshelves and cabinets that seamlessly come together with your primary working space? We can do exactly that.
Whether you want an office wardrobe to quickly change into something formal for a video meeting, or if you want plenty of cabinet space for filing and storage, we can meet your needs and design your WFH space exactly as you imagine it. There aren’t many limits to what you can do, and even if your WFH space is small, we can still modify your vision to fit into the room you work in.

Whether you live in a smaller space or need to come up with some smarter solutions for storage, we’ve got some great smart storage ideas on how to use as little space as possible and still have a stylish living space. Tiny homes and smart living is on the rise, so here are the best ways you can make the most of the space you have to work with:
For all of your clothes, shoes, accessories and more, a fitted wardrobe is the best way to go. If you have a bare wall you don’t know what to do with, or an alcove in your room that could fit a fitted wardrobe, then this option could be the best one for you. Having a wardrobe fitted into this space means that you can choose the layout, what goes where, and you’ll be able to call the shots on how many drawers and shoe racks you’ll need, as well as railing. Any extra space at the top or bottom of the wardrobe could also allow you to store any storage boxes you may have.
Fitted wardrobes are very amenable in the design stage and even the door you choose will have a brilliant effect on your room. If you don’t have a lot of space for a full-size mirror, choosing a mirrored door will mean you don’t need to put an additional one in the room, plus mirrored furniture can make you room much bigger and can improve natural light. Choosing shaker doors for your fitted wardrobe can provide a natural and stylish look to your room and will make for an attractive bonus if you decide to sell or move out of your home.
Having a multi-purpose bed is an excellent smart storage solution! Under-bed storage boxes or a liftable mattress can make all the difference between having storage boxes everywhere and keeping them all in one space. You can make your under-bed storage even neater by using vacuum bags and/or boxes. It’s an excellent idea to keep your clean towels and fresh bedding in your under-bed storage space if you don’t have an airing cupboard or ample storage cupboards in your home.
A big, bulky bookcase or shelf can take up a huge amount of space in your room and, if you ever want to redecorate, they can also be a pain to repaint or move around. Floating shelves can be screwed into your walls and can be positioned as close together or as far apart as you need them to be. They are also excellent as a multi-purpose smart storage feature. Need to use them as a bookshelf? The great thing is that floating shelves can fit stacks of books, and can also be used to hold miscellaneous decorations that you have for your room. And, as you can’t usually see the fixings, they look seamless and stylish against any wall.
If you’re looking to smarten up your living space or need to make use of some smart storage solutions, try our suggestions and see if any of them work for you!
