Ikea bedroom furniture ideas
Ikea is best known for its affordable flat-pack freestanding furniture. But it also has a range of fitted wardrobe solutions, at a very reasonable price.
It has three main fitted wardrobes styles: Pax, Platsa and Elvarli.
- Pax wardrobes most closely resemble standard fitted wardrobes. They come with a huge range of configurations, doors and internal storage options.
- Platsa is a modular wardrobe system: you can pick and choose sections to build the storage you want.
- Elvarli is an open, doorless wardrobe system, which Ikea recommends for walk-in wardrobes.

Ikea's Pax and Platsa systems come with either hinged or sliding doors, or you can have them left open.
Doors come in different colours, wood effects, glass, matt and opaque options. There is one mirrored door option for Pax (Vikedal) and one for Platsa (Ridabu). There are also a couple of patterned options for the Pax wardrobe.
There are plenty of different types of storage options you can have inside your Ikea fitted wardrobes. These include: hooks; rails; drawers; shelves; dividers; pull-out trays; dedicated shoe storage; removable boxes; jewellery organisers and trouser hangers, to name but a few.
Ikea has an in-store design service, but it won't send a designer out to visit your home, so you will need to measure the space yourself. You can also use its online planning tool.
Ikea has a comprehensive online planning tool for its Pax and Platsa fitted wardrobes. You can add different storage options to your chosen wardrobe, customise the doors and visualise your design.
As its furniture is pre-designed to certain configurations, delivery doesn't take long. Depending on what you're after, you may be able to buy it in store and take it home immediately.
Ikea's furniture is designed to be easy to build, so it doesn't have an installation service for its fitted furniture. However, it does have an assembly service, costing between £15 and 65 per item.
Just 9% of the fitted furniture owners we surveyed installed their fitted wardrobe themselves, but 62% of Ikea customers did.
Ikea doesn't sell any other fitted bedroom furniture, but you can choose from a wide range of modular systems to help you build a more bespoke design, and its storage solutions can be used in any room.
