Fitted Kitchens vs Off the Rack

Posted on by Unique Bedrooms Direct


YiStock_000020647858Smallour home is a reflection of your personality and lifestyle, filled with character
and charm. Whether you are looking for a place to retreat from the hectic outside world, or need an area to socialise with friends and family, your home caters to your every requirement. Over time, most homeowners decide to redecorate their home which can prove to be a stressful, time consuming and costly process. This is why thorough preparation and organisation are extremely important to ensure a trouble-free experience.

The kitchen is one of the most popular rooms chosen for a redesign, where homeowners are left to choose whether a fitted kitchen or a ready-made style selected straight from a standard furniture store will best suit them.

In today’s economic climate, many homeowners cannot afford large houses, so for those living in a confined space fitted kitchens are ideal. This allows you to design the layout of your kitchen according to the amount of space you have. Depending on your individual requirements, you have the freedom to design a kitchen which encompasses all of your cooking needs with a central island as an area to eat and socialise.

As opposed to off-the-rack kitchens, fitted kitchens ensure you have a unique design which will reflect the personality you want to convey, complementing the rest of your home seamlessly.

The kitchen is a space of functionality and style, so when choosing a design you must consider the whole picture before looking into minor details such as colours and materials. Decide on the desired look you are aiming for and then focus on the smaller details after. From the charm of country-style to a luxury modern design, there is a selection of styles to choose from.

Large storage capacity is an important feature of any kitchen to ensure there is enough room for all your appliances and ingredients. A fitted kitchen uses in-built storage space so all your equipment is safely stored without taking up any extra room.

The idea of a fitted kitchen is that it is tailored to exactly match your lifestyle, as opposed to an off-the-rack design which has been ready-made without your individual specifications in mind. This freedom of design has led to a significant rise in the popularity of fitted kitchen installations, where spaces in the room can be dedicated to things you enjoy; for example, if you have a penchant for fine wines, you can have a specific area where these can be stored in the room.

When designing and fitting your own kitchen, making any mistakes can often be extremely costly to correct, so hiring the services of a professional will save yourself a headache in the long run. Here at Unique Bedrooms, we design, create and install stylish contemporary kitchens to fit with all of your individual preferences on material and style.

From the initial enquiry through to the installation itself, we are on hand from start to finish ensuring a thorough and efficient job is completed – we’ll even take care of the disposal of your old kitchen once everything is finished.
