Built in Furniture to Help you Create a Dream Home in a Dream Location
May 7, 2014
When searching for your new home, you should always think location, location, location. Finding a place to call your own in a setting you’ve always wanted is a dream for most people. But whether your ideal location is an idyllic country landscape, a spot with a sea view or a bustling city centre with everything you need on your doorstep, you may find that your perfect place’s interior doesn’t quite live up to your dream.
Realise your dream with the perfect home
So you’ve listened to your heart and you’ve found the location you’ve always wanted to settle down in. Now it comes time to transform your new property into your ideal home.
You need to consider how your new home needs to work for you, whether it’s a quaint country cottage in dire need of redecoration, a sprawling modern home with limited storage or a bijou city pad with an impractical layout. Think about how you need to utilise your home, for example do you need to make space for occasional guests? Is your home also your office? Have you got a vast collection of shoes or clothes that need accommodating? Get a good understanding of how you want to utilise your space before you get started with decoration.
A space that works for you
The key to modern living is flexibility, and fitted furniture not only makes your room work harder for you, giving you the chance to create a multi-purpose space, but it also offers you a variety of designs and finishes to work with. You don’t have to compromise style for substance.
Well-designed study furniture can make all the difference when working from home. If you’ve got plenty of space, dressing room furniture can take clutter away from your bedroom and keep your clothes organised. A fold down bed allows you more versatility, if your office needs to double up as a spare bedroom. And if your cottage has unusually shaped walls, fitted wardrobes are fantastic for furnishing an awkward space.
If you’re struggling to visualise how to make best use of your space, a design consultation is a great place to start. Specialist fitted furniture designers have the know-how to look at your home, understand your needs and come up with detailed layouts that can offer you the solution you need.
Balancing form and function
When it comes to choosing the perfect style of furniture for your home, it’s all about getting the balance right. Try to complement the period of the property, whilst also taking your personal style preference into consideration. There is a huge range of styles on offer in the market today, from modern high-gloss and timeless oak to traditional walnut finishes. So if you’re looking for bedrooms and built in wardrobes or wall beds and home office furniture, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
With contemporary, classic and traditional designs to choose from, your fitted furniture will fit seamlessly into your home. So if your country cottage suits a classic look or your city apartment demands a modern finish, ask a designer to advise you on furniture that will enhance your interior, making it worthy of the location outside your front door.
Attention to detail
Whatever look you decide on, it’s the clever finishing touches that makes fitted furniture such a desirable addition to your home. From soft close drawers and slide out accessory trays that keep your wardrobe perfectly organised to fold down beds that are ready in seconds and cleverly concealed storage for all the technology in your home office, every piece is configured to your needs. Today’s designers have thought of everything, so you can enjoy the perfect marriage of high-end, high quality furniture with finishing touches designed to make everyday living effortless and exceptional.
