Trends for Fitted Bedroom Furniture in 2024

We’ve been out and about looking at trends in bespoke fitted bedroom furniture for 2024. We recently attended the 'Kitchen, Bedrooms & Bathrooms Exhibition' at the NEC in Birmingham and were excited to see all the new products and designs available from our suppliers. We've brought some back with us to share with you from the best of Italian, German, Austrian and Swiss furniture design.

Here are our top 5 trends for fitted furniture in 2024

1. Dark Finish

We saw a trend towards dark colours in the bedroom. On display at the exhibition, we saw walnut finished cabinetry pared with dark fittings, also on trend in 2024. Interior fittings and handles were in black or dark grey, often in a matt finish. The contrast of sumptuous walnut and stark black hardware makes for a super luxury look. We can provide this sumptuous look with a real wood walnut veneer or a walnut effect melamine and luxury fittings to your needs.

For sliding door wardrobes, we saw a trend in dark metal frames with a smokey or clear mirrored door.  We can fit sliding doors in black or anthracite frames, this recent Freebird project shows ‘Cashmere’ panels with smooth running sliding doors with black frames and black hardware throughout.

2. Luxury Interior Fittings

The latest trends take wardrobe interiors beyond the simple clothes rail, it's all about creating a luxury closet experience and bringing a sense of orderliness to your belongings. You can achieve the luxury of a walk-in wardrobe in a smaller, more compact space with the right interior fittings.

Hanging rails and accessories have never looked so good! The dark finish really show off your clothes and accessories. You can choose from smooth running soft close drawers in dark metal and smoked glass, and a range of clever racks including pull down rails and pullout trouser racks and linen storage. Flocked accessory trays provide storage for jewellery, sunglasses, hair accessories etc. Below is a selection of wardrobe interiors that we particularly liked at the exhibition.

3. Modular Systems

The trend for black hardware doesn't have to be limited to handles, hinges and drawers.  A black metal framed shelving system can bring structure and porosity to a space whether used as a room divider, wall shelving, or as a wardrobe frame.

We particularly liked the 'Zero' system by Emuca which features modular components that can be easily repositioned via a simple tool , allowing you to endlessly reposition and adapt your own storage solutions between the shelves. See brochure

4. Linen Effect

Another bedroom furniture trend for 2024 is linen and fabric effects on wardrobe doors and interiors. The video snippet below was taken at the exhibition where you can see this effect. We can provide bespoke luxury doors with fabric effect and reeded or fluted panels.

5. Moody Lighting

These dark luxurious interiors are offset beautifully with integrated lighting. We always use the best fitted furniture lighting systems. Lighting is activated when the door is opened, whether it’s a hinged or sliding door. We pay attention to the detail and use warm white rather then a cool white to add to the luxury. Soft-close doors fittings keep door closing quiet for sleeping partners on early mornings!

And finally...

If you feel inspired by these latest trends then we can design a layout for your bedroom area that fits your lifestyle and needs.
