Is your space too small for your big ideas?
Make space with built in furnishings.
Creating living space perfection is a full time gig. If you’re fanatical about your space, there will always be something you want to play with before ultimate perfection is achieved. And a big challenge many obsessive décor lovers face is the lack of space for their big, bold ideas – and furnishings.
If that sounds like you, built-in furnishings could just be the way forward.
built-in breakfast nooks, sofas, and desks are the ultimate when it comes to seamless integration. Ideal for small or pokey spaces, they can be created to fit perfectly and perform various functions, like storage and studying. Dining banquettes are also great space savers. Inspired by restaurant booths, they’re great for smaller rooms and look gorg in larger rooms too.
Functionality to a tee.
You’re not at the mercy of a designer designing for the masses, you can have your piece custom built by a cabinet maker, so it fits your space. You can also consider how lighting can be incorporated into the design. Think wall lights next to a floating shelf or pendant lights over a table. You can also look at different opening and automatic mechanisms to help them perform effortlessly. Plus you can adapt your design for cords – no one likes messy cords lying around.
Easy peasy, styling.
Remember to plan
Like with anything in interior décor, planning is everything! Built-ins are a serious commitment so make sure you map everything out and play with shapes and ideas until you are 100% happy with the layout. You can find stacks of inspiration online and in the glossies. Happy decorating!
