Home storage is one of the common challenges in any contemporary house or an apartment. Some time ago, we covered the pros and cons of bespoke hallway furniture. This time, we would like to focus on bespoke storage solutions pros and cons — that is, approach the question in a general manner. So, here goes:
Storage capacity is tailored to your needs — one of the greatest benefits of going with bespoke storage solutions — whether for your hallway or your bedroom — is that the storage capacity is fully tailored to your needs. Remember that awkward feeling when your high boots collection will not fit into the ready-made wardrobe, no matter how you adjust the shelves and racks? Well, this will never be the case with bespoke storage — if you take your time to think over what and how you are going to store, of course.
Not a single square centimetre of your room goes to waste — next, bespoke storage solutions are designed to utilise every square centimetre of your room. They are simply essential in awkwardly shaped rooms — for example, attics converted into bedrooms. Under the staircase storage cabinet is another great example of bespoke furniture unit that helps you make the most of your available space, playing along to the architectural setting you are working with.
Not always affordable — sure, this one will mostly depend on the contractor you choose, but on the whole, any bespoke furniture piece will cost you a little extra. In the long run, of course, the investment will be worth every penny. However, you might have to get ready to pay a large amount of money upfront.
Requires time to build — once again, a lot will depend on your contractor. Still, it will always take more time than delivering a ready-made piece — even if the professional you consult is super fast. Then, of course, you will not see you bespoke storage solutions until they are actually ready, so you will just have to trust the contractor to deliver high-quality product.
Not portable — a lot of bespoke storage solutions are built in and even if they are not, they are still tailored to a particular environment. So, you will not have a chance to move furniture around the house, or take it with you when you decide to move out. So, unless the property belongs to you, bespoke storage solutions might not be worth the extra time and money.
Still, even though technically the cons outnumber the pros, bespoke furniture is one of the best solutions on optimising your available space and boosting your home storage capacity. It is a perfect fit for homeowners — especially, if the houses they live in are awkwardly shaped. If, however, you are renting, ready-made furniture is a more reasonable way to go. Plus, there are plenty of stores that offer high-quality furniture at affordable prices, so renting an unfurnished apartment does not necessarily have to be a challenge.
