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.
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.
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.
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.
