Furniture, like most other household features, is constantly emerging and evolving, and with composite materials in abundance, modular solutions are both affordable and functional, and are guaranteed to add a touch of simplistic elegance to any modern setting. Tables have shifted to separable units, with sleek glass tops that house nicely into stainless steel bases, creating a smooth and shiny appearance, as well as being very practical.
The Wonders of Glass
Up until a few decades ago, glass was a used in a very limited way, and mainly for the obvious window covering that we all know today, yet developments in glass refining and manufacturing allows for the homeowner to use glass in many situations. A customised, smoked glass table top with the right stainless steel table legs, would certainly be the feature of any room, and with zero maintenance, you really have it all. Glass can be used effectively in the bathroom, with a customised shower screen and matching splashbacks on the hand basin, and with floor to ceiling mirrors, you have the perfect setting.
In this digital age, we no longer have to spend half a day trawling around furniture shops, looking for that perfect suite, or set of bedroom lamps, and with online suppliers, you can expect lower that retail prices, which is always welcome. Then there’s the time you save, as online shopping doesn’t involve any travel, and if you are at all eco-friendly, the carbon monoxide emissions that you save because you buy online will reduce your carbon footprint.
Kit Form Furniture
If you really want style without the usual price tag, take a look at the furniture that comes in kit form, and with easy to follow instructions, you can build the unit onsite, saving even more money. This type of modular furniture is not bulky, and therefore delivery costs are lower, and anyone with a basic understanding of carpentry can assemble items.
Every home is unique, and with the growing trend for straight line elevations, bespoke furniture comes into its own. Online suppliers can cut to size, and with easy to follow instructions and a basic set of tools, one can assemble any item without a fuss. Built in wardrobes are very much the fashion and after an accurate measuring session, you can go online and order a bespoke walk in wardrobe for a fraction of the cost, especially if it comes in kit form.
If you are planning a major renovation, or better still, designing your dream home, it is worth your while to spend a lot of time toying with various design concepts, and with modern composites, you might be surprised at what can actually be achieved. Look at what your main materials are, and if your home uses concrete and stone, then stainless steel complements this well.
Online suppliers of modern modular furniture offer you a range of possibilities, and with fit furniture, you can really shave a significant slice off the price.
