There’s plenty of reasons why moving home makes no financial sense – even if you have a large and expanding family. With house prices still on the
rise and kids comfortable in their current school, it’s difficult to make that kind of decision. But what’s left to do if you’re running out of room all about the home? Well, it sounds like an overly simplistic solution – but as long as everyone already has enough beds to sleep in then there’s no reason why getting brand new integrated cupboards, drawers and wardrobes installed throughout the home can’t go to some lengths to solve the problem!
What is Integrated Furniture?
Also known as ‘fitted’ or ‘built-in’ furniture, integrated cupboards and wardrobes are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural interior, whether they are installed inside or against your walls, under the stairs or on top or underneath your beds. They usually include coverings, such as sliding or folding doors, so you can hide your clutter well out of sight but still have ease-of-access to anything and everything you need. Some of the more popular integrated furniture items include:
- Hidden cupboards (usually under beds or countertops)
- Walk-in or sliding wardrobes
- Miniature libraries and bookcases
- Wine racks
- Media units (which usually include space for a flat-screen television, satellite box and DVD or Blu-Ray player)
- Bay window ottomans
- Household bins
- Integrated dishwashers and fridge-freezers (although these might require installation by a fully trained and qualified plumber instead of a regular tradesman)

Why not just pick out the areas most in need of a clean-up first, and work backwards from there? This will help save money and reduce the risk of overhauling your home during the installation process.
