Hartleys Bedrooms


Planning to refresh your home décor in the New Year? Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year, but it also brings with it a large amount of clutter, all of which needs to go somewhere…

At Hartleys we specialise in creating bespoke storage solutions for bedrooms, home studies and multi-purpose rooms. Each space is designed and crafted to comfortably house all of your belongings, hence reducing the likelihood of clutter rebuilding. Utilising all available space, we work with your existing architectural features, such as beams and sloping ceilings, to make the most of the whole space (and often previously unused, hard to reach areas). Our aim is to create a room which both looks stylish and works hard for you.

Our fitted furniture options are wide-ranging with unlimited choices in achieving totally bespoke storage and dedicated space for all of your treasures. Ways to save space are always central to our design plans; options such as foldaway beds and built in vanity units are consistently popular.

Hartleys blend forty years’ craftsmanship expertise, together with state-of-the-art machinery and the highest level of customer service to deliver furniture which is chic, functional and guaranteed to last. We are one of Skipton’s leading home-grown businesses and pride ourselves on our loyal and growing customer following, which covers the whole Yorkshire region, as well as areas of Lancashire and Cumbria.

For a seamlessly fitted furniture experience, call us today to arrange your FREE home design visit, or we’d be delighted to see you at our Skipton showroom.
