As one of the largest pieces of furniture in your bedroom, the last thing you want is your wardrobe to look outdated and dull. There are so many ways that you can improve the appearance of your wardrobes to make them modern and stylish and still complement the theme of your room. When people redecorate their bedroom, tasks such as painting the walls and ceiling, buying new lights and even investing in a new bed are normally prioritised. However, the more you upgrade and improve the rest of your room, the more your wardrobe begins to look out of place and in desperate need of a makeover. Luckily for you, Furniche has been helping clients transform their outdated furniture with modern and bespoke sliding wardrobes in Milton Keynes for many years, and we have an abundance of wardrobe makeover ideas to help you transform your home.

Old Built In Wardrobe Makeover Ideas To Transform Your Home

While you may be able to give your outdated wardrobes a coat of paint to spruce them up a little, nothing compares to designing your very own fitted wardrobes that fit seamlessly into the design of your room. One of the main benefits of fitted wardrobes is that they are made to measure, meaning that you can fit your wardrobes into any awkward angle and small space. In addition to this, you can also choose from a wide range of customisable features to make the wardrobe more catered to your style and interior decor.

Our old built-in wardrobe makeover ideas provide you with an abundance of inspiration to start piecing together a design that will completely transform your interior. So, why not think about the following:

Light Brown Sliding Doors

Door Design

The first step when it comes to designing your wardrobe is to think about the style of door you would like to incorporate into the design. There are a host of different designs for you to choose from, such as traditional finishes and contemporary touches, making it exceptionally easy for you to find a design that best matches your interior and style. Here at Furniche, we have a wide collection of door styles to enhance your interior, all of which are also available in a range of gloss and matte finishes and stunning colours. As well as the style of the door, you also have the option of fitted wardrobes with pull doors, or sliding wardrobes for space-saving solutions.

Fitted Wardrobe Designs

Our fitted wardrobe range is extremely popular with our clients due to the versatile styles available. You can find stunning modern designs as well as simplistic yet elegant traditional features to bring character into the room. Doors with a slight detail are extremely popular at the moment, especially when paired with a matte finish and wooden-like colour. This type of design adds style and elegant detail into the room without making the wardrobe old fashioned or look outdated in a few years time. If this is a style that you would like to create, then we highly recommend our Classic, Midsomer, Georgia or Florence collection, as they all feature a delicately detailed finish.

On the other hand, for those that wish to create a contemporary feel within their room, a gloss finish with smooth and sleek designs is the perfect addition. As this is an extremely popular style of wardrobe design, we have a selection of options to choose from, such as our Living Space, Ava Plus, Living Rococo and Living Furore collections. Take a look below at our range of fitted wardrobe door designs:

Sliding Wardrobe Designs

Sliding wardrobes are a great space-saving solution, particularly for smaller properties. This is because it allows you to place your fitted wardrobe into any space without having to worry about the doors opening, allowing you to place furniture, such as a bed, close to the wardrobe. Much like our fitted wardrobes, our sliding doors are made to measure, making sure that you take full advantage of the full length and height of your room. Additionally, you can also enjoy an array of stunning designs from our wide collection, incorporating stylish panels and mirrored doors to enhance style and lighting. When working with our team, you can choose from the following sliding door designs:

  • Single Panel
  • Split Panel
  • Stripe Panel
  • Wide Panel
  • Four Panel
  • Four Stripe Panel

After choosing the design of your wardrobe doors, the next most important step is to choose the colour of your wardrobe, which will then help to bring it to life. You can choose from a stunning range of colour options, from bright pinks and dark aubergine to more contemporary greys, black and silver. You can choose to have multiple colour options installed into the design of your wardrobe, such as the panel sliding doors that can cater to two beautifully contrasting or coherent colours. Our team has years of experience with fitted bedrooms in Milton Keynes, so we can help you to find a colour palette that best matches your style. You can find our full range of colours in our brochure, or take a look at our previous projects for some inspiration on the colours that can be incorporated into your room.

If you are stuck for ideas and would like some inspiration, then we highly recommend taking a look at articles on Livspace and HomeLane. Alternatively, Smashing Magazine has a create article on how you can piece together bespoke colour palettes.


If you have a small space and are looking to make the room feel bigger and brighter, then incorporating a mirror into your wardrobe design is the perfect solution. There are two main benefits to adding a mirror onto your wardrobe; the first being that it eliminates the need to place a mirror elsewhere in the room, helping you to save space, and the second that it allows natural light to bounce around the room to make it feel bigger. You can easily incorporate a mirror onto your door design, whether you decide to have sliding or fitted wardrobes. If you are less keen on the idea of having mirrors on the exterior of the doors, but still wish to save space, then incorporating a mirror on the inside of a fitted wardrobe door can be designed for you.

As well as your wardrobe, you should also consider incorporating mirrors around the room and throughout your home. If you are unsure about how to achieve this in style, then you can find a host of ideas in terms of mirror designs and placement over on Oka’s blog.

The interior of your wardrobe is just as important as the exterior, as it helps you to maintain an organised and stress-free room while also helping with space-saving. When designing a bespoke wardrobe, you can choose exactly how the interior of your wardrobe is laid out, incorporating hanging space and draws suited to you. The Furniche team can help you to design an interior that helps you to organise your clothes based on your usage. For example, if you have a collection of watches, then we can add a thin draw that allows you to store your jewellery. Additionally, you can incorporate long hanging space for suits and dresses, your choices really are endless. After having your wardrobe designed by our team, we suggest taking a look at House Beautiful for some tips and tricks on how to organise your wardrobe to make for a stress-free experience.


Here at Furniche, you can customise every aspect of your wardrobe, from the interior to the exterior, making sure that your new home addition not only functions well but also offer ample style. To help you piece together this bespoke and stunning design, you can also choose from a wide range of handles that can help to enhance the traditional or modern aesthetic you are after. For example, our bar handles are stunning on modern designs, adding to the sophisticated touches that you and our team have pieced together. Alternatively, door knobs look best on traditional styles, enhancing the elegant feel and aesthetic of the design. No matter the design of your wardrobe doors, our team can help you to find the perfect handles to enhance and elevate your design, ensuring that you will fall in love with your final product year after year. You can find our range of handles in our brochure.
