If you are in the midst of building a new home or looking to upgrade your existing bedroom space, you have most likely come up against the dilemma of choosing between freestanding and fitted bedroom furniture pieces.
As your fitted furniture specialists, we want to help you make the right decision. We’ve put together a list of need to knows for you to consider before making your final decision.
Why choose fitted furniture for your bedroom
One of the main reasons homeowners tend to go for fitted furniture is due to its customisation. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, the benefits of fitted furniture are endless. Let’s run through a handful of these:
Maximise space in your bedroom!
A disadvantage of choosing freestanding bedroom furniture is that it will only come in certain set sizes whereas fitted furniture can help maximise the space available as they are custom built to your specific size requirements.
Internal storage to suit your requirements
There are wardrobes and cabinets up and down the country that are crammed full with clothes, shoes, and just about anything else we can stuff in. Avoiding this problem couldn’t be any easier than with internal storage solutions.
Incorporate your style into your fitted furniture
Ranging from contemporary to traditional, everyone’s style is slightly different from the rest. It’s for this reason that we believe every bedroom should be individually styled to suit your own taste. It’s what makes your bedroom unique and truly your own. You’re free to choose from a range of different colours and finishes to ensure your vision come to life!
Make use of your awkward spaces
Every room will have a few awkward spaces – such as under an alcove, behind a door, or under a beam – that require custom-built furniture to maximise every nook and cranny.
Fitted furniture will allow you to design your pieces around these spaces. Our GPM experts will organise a visit to your home for an initial consultation where they will take a look at these spaces and discuss your ideas for the room. They can then come up with a high-quality 3D drawing to your exact requirements and specifications before the project even begins!
When is freestanding furniture the better choice?
Easy to move around
The mobility of freestanding furniture, such as beds and wardrobes, means you don’t have to worry about a sudden need for a change around. You can easily move the freestanding furniture piece to a different bedroom if you decide to re-furnish, and you can also take it with you should you decide to move home.
The convenience of one-off pieces
A reason to opt for freestanding furniture in your bedroom is simply the convenience of it for one-off pieces. Freestanding pieces are often readily available, so if you can’t bear to wait around for furniture, it might be the right choice.
