According to experts, when it comes to your home’s furniture, it needs to be the perfect mix between built-in furniture and movable ones. However, some homeowners tend to prefer one over the other most of the time without knowing what are the advantages and disadvantages of their choice.
In this article, home and kitchen designer Bella Kitchen & Design reveals the pros and cons of built-ins and movable furniture.
The Pros and Cons of Built-Ins
There are a few advantages to choosing built-ins. For instance, if you’re looking to achieve a minimalist look around your home, experts recommend that you pick built-in furniture. This is because not only will allow you to avoid having to shop for a specific size of a furniture piece but it can also help you save space around your home. Apart from that, it also has the potential to have more storage compared to their movable counterparts.
Despite these pros, your remodeling contractor will also say that built-ins do come with their disadvantages as well. One of these disadvantages is its cost; as built-in furniture has to be customized according to your needs at the time of construction, it’s likely that it will cost more compared to movable furniture. Other than that, since they’re built-ins, they can’t be so easily swapped out for new furniture once they’re created.
The Pros and Cons of Movables
On the other hand, if there are some areas in your home that require flexibility, then consider movable furniture instead. Like built-ins, they have their own set of advantages such as allowing you to change the look of your room from time to time by changing its placement. Since your furniture also does not require customisation, you can expect it to be a less costly alternative as well.
Their disadvantage, on the other hand, lies in their storage capacity; as movable furniture aren’t as big as built-ins, it’s possible that you may run out of storage space sooner than expected and choosing a movable furniture with more storage space can make it heavy and difficult to move. Also, they can’t be customised so it’s possible that they may not fit the room you want to place it in.
