    Why You Should Choose Bespoke Fitted Wardrobes over Freestanding Furniture
    When designing a new bedroom, there is usually quite a lot of room for creativity and playfulness. It isn’t like putting together a kitchen or a bathroom, because no part of the space is fixed or preconfigured. Inventive homeowners in Ipswich can shake things up, move furniture around, add signature pieces, and build a comfortable, personal retreat. However, it is worth considering the value of fitted furniture. Wardrobes, in particular, benefit greatly from made to measure designs.

    Top Tips for Making a Small Kitchen Look Spacious
    For most homeowners, the perfect kitchen is a space that feels expansive. It is filled with light, life, and family activity. It encourages casual conversation and the making of memories. It is the beating heart of the house. So, what happens if you are keen to build your dream kitchen, but you have only got a limited amount of room to transform? Small kitchens present a number of design challenges, but they have just as much potential as bigger spaces. You just have to be smarter with the décor and the furniture that you put in them. When shopping for bespoke or custom fit kitchens in Suffolk, focus on multidimensional storage solutions and slimline appliances.

    4 Amazing Design Ideas for Your New Kitchen
    The kitchen has always been thought of as the heart of the home, but it is not always given the attention that it deserves when it comes to remodelling. When renovating kitchens, many families treat the space as an isolated one. It has a much firmer purpose than say, a lounge or conservatory, so the temptation is to section it off and make it feel separate. For modern kitchen designs, however, this isn’t the best approach. These days, the trend is for more flexible spaces, which blend seamlessly with the others around them. Whether you opt for an open plan kitchen, a great room, or just a clever colour scheme that makes the space part of the house, it is important to maintain that sense of fluidity. These superb design ideas will help you start imagining, planning, and creating the kitchen of your dreams. Make It a Great Room If you are keen to create a communal family vibe in your kitchen, you might want to think about designing an open plan space. The ‘great room’ refers to a k...
