Having just had a couple of the major fitted bedroom furniture companies
around to give us quotes for 2 double bedrooms (we're looking at anything
from £5000 upwards) I was thinking of checking out companies that might
provide us with the units ( made to measure) and I would do the fitting. I
have located one such company www.pyramiddoors.com and would like any
feedback from other users plus alternatives that anyone may like to suggest.
Anyone used MFI or is that to embarrasing to admit to
I can vouch for that too.
Just finshed fitting a new Schreiber kitchen purchased from MFI.
The quality of the components was very good,
The delivery was on the day they agreed,
EVERYTHING was there in the first delivery.
And not a single thing damaged ( well , not before I started fitting it
anyway ;-) )
The saleman that did the design and sold it to us was also very helpful, and
there was absolutely NO pressure in trying to get us to buy.
( He even reccomended that we buy the sink and oven from elsewhere because
MFI are expensive for those items.... )
He just did the design, printed off the quotes and piccys, and said give us
a call or come in if you want to buy it.
I will certainly be going back there to consider their products when we get
round to re-fitting our bedrooms.

Agreed. We bought some furniture from the local MFI store recently.
SWMBO wanted a sideboard, and boy did we get a substantial sideboard!
No rickety joints, easy to put together, everything fitted.
Delivered on time. Everything about the purchase was good. I think
they may have a new management team at the top these days, it's
nothing like the experience of a few years ago.
One thing that has changed is that the local MFI store now carries no
stock. You used to be able to drive up, but the stuff you wanted, load
up the car with flatpacks, and go home and try and guess which bit was
Yes we visited this afternoon and was quite impressed (especially the
Schreiber). They also have a special deal till December 17th which gives a
hefty discount if you need to fit 2 bedrooms at the same time , which we do
What put me off originally was that in addition this old image they used to
have, the lady quoting us the highest prices for their fitted stuff said
whatever you do don't choose MFI. It looked OK to me and thats why I want
The other thing that really p****d me off was all these special offers
discounts etc that the all in fitted outfits were promoting. If you bought
at the supposedly original price it comes out at anything from £7-8K upwards
which is ridiculous. They must decide what they can sell it for, double it,
then offer it at a 50% discount
Just finishing mine now - I used Wickes fited bedrooms (having used
their stuff for my new kitchen last year) and am very pleased with the
quality. I was very careful with the deisgn as you have to take into
account the sizes of the various units etc they sell, but it worked
well and looked great - cost about £1200 for fitted furniture.
They are worth a look.
Make your own :-) I did....
Still don't know what to do with the doors though.

I wanted fitted bedroom furniture that would fit up against a sloping
ceiling. The Wickes range is designed to do this and it worked very well.
Yes it is MDF but looks like light oak or something. 3 double units with
internal drawers, hanging rails and 2 bedside cabinets to match came in 90
separate packages. There were two items not delivered and one damaged and
they sorted this out immediately. We are quite pleased with the result even
though it is MDF.
