Decoration challenges for a small place

Are you having problems in decorating or occupying an empty wall so that you can fully utilize the space and also create a personal spot at home? You are not the only one. I have been beating my brain out trying to find the perfect piece of furniture for a small hallway I have in my house.

In an effort to organize some books and turning my hall into a comfy spot for coffee and relaxation I decided to purchase a lovely bookcase and a tiny coffee table and I already have an antique small armchair that fits the place perfectly. I can just imagine myself reading and enjoying the savor of the hot drink in a lazy cold afternoon.

After a brief search online I came across a website that provides nice furniture for all tastes and budgets, Required Goods. I love the internet, don’t you? One can find anything they need and search for information on the items he or she is on the verge to purchase. Me, I decided to buy some solid oak furniture and I found out that is one of the sturdiest woods and materials that can be used to craft furniture from. Solid oak is also easily maintained and I realized that I simply adore its aspect and I am convinced that solid oak furniture will transform the appearance of my small hallway.

Below are some inspiring pictures that got me into the idea of a book corner.

I have decided, I am placing the order tomorrow and can’t wait to have the coffee table and the amazing bookcase delivered at home, I have the perfect neighbor that will help me put together the furniture and then my tiny, cozy, charming relaxation spot will be ready to be used.

Project bedroom: making a dream come true

Growing up, I have always been impressed by furniture stores. I would see an 18th century sofa and imagine myself being painted by William Blake. Or would stare at a mahogany desk and visualize personalities throughout the history making difficult and great decisions behind such imposing pieces of furniture.

But back to real life, I am now on a hunt for furnishing my home bedroom. As my husband decided I will be responsible for the research I am scrolling down pages on the internet looking for a design to fit my wishes and that will also bring warmth and comfort to the room. So, I am looking at modern furniture and classical furniture but all the times, my eyes are being caught by the classical one as it brings up memories of my childhood dreams.

I must say, searching for the perfect bed, wardrobes, night stands and all the accessories is an energy and time consuming business. After measuring, thinking and overthinking I realized that the best thing to do is getting fitted wardrobes and fitted furniture as it would be the easiest way to have the dream like bedroom and make the most of the space we have there. There are plenty of companies to choose from but Capital Bedrooms caught my eye, I am impressed with the work they have done and also, getting a designer in to advise us without any fee sounds great. I can’t wait to see what ideas the designer will come with and see our bedroom furnished.

What type of material to use for the fitted furniture

What type of material to use for the fitted furniture

I highly suggest hiring a professional company or a carpenter to build them out of MDF or simply order from them MDF cut to size according to the project you send them and build your own fitted furniture, if you are a DYI type of person. This type of material can be handcrafted to all sorts of design and they can be painted in lovely colours.

How to transform your home with fitted furniture

It is a common fact known by almost any house owner that if the fitted furniture you have is tasteful it will be like a bonus for the people living in that house. In general fitted wardrobes could be seen as a bit old fashioned and the removal if ever required of one needs to be taken in consideration before deciding to install one but lately fitted furniture has made a comeback thanks to more modern designs and new building material now available.

Also, when taking the decision to install any type of fitted furniture inside your house weigh in the possibility of you moving out and leaving the furniture behind because it won’t fit anywhere else.

If there is a strong possibility of this happening then think twice before buying, but if you don’t feel free to continue with your dream of having a fitted wardrobe.

What type of fitted furniture to choose

If done properly, probably the simple floor to ceiling ones have the best look. They are stylish and the new storage space it offers will never be matched by freestanding furniture. This “floor to ceiling” nature is a contemporary option as they swallow clobber.

One of the greatest advantages of fitted furniture is that they’ll help you avoid messy rooms with a piece of clothing on the chair and a sock on the other chair. The room will always look tidy as a fitted wardrobe will be able to hold everything inside.

You’ll say, but hey in a few years I’ll be sick of the colours my furniture has. Well don’t worry because MDF built fitted furniture can be repainted with new colours to suit your new taste or the new wall colour, so no worries there!

Most people will take storage over style, and I can count myself here too as I am a complete storage geek, so fitted furniture could be a great solution for you as well if you are obsessed with storage space.

How does fitted furniture affect the pricing of the house?

For starters, I have never heard of a house having its value reduced because it had fitted furniture. On the contrary, it can give the house a “unique” feeling, like something that only you have it in that way. It can actually be considered a plus when selling as it can give the potential buyer a unique feeling that it may not encounter in another house on the same street.

Conclusion

Fitted furniture will allow you to make use of every extra inch in your house and transform it into a storage place. There is a small corner in the hallway? Build a fitted wardrobe there.

Do you have empty room under the stairs? Fill that up with your shoes and keep the house clean by installing some sliding doors. They can be very stylish and easy to open.

So if you care about storage space you can surely turn to fitted furniture. It will make your house look more clean by being able to bury those extra coats behind a sliding door and you find your home looking bigger.
