Pros of using custom elementscabinet furniture is the uniqueness of the interior and the solution to a complex problem, which, as a rule, cannot be dealt with using ordinary modules. However, it can be difficult to select and place custom pieces of furniture. To avoid them, we turned to professional Elena Andreeva for advice - the creator is amazing. The designer has already shared with Roomble readers the secrets of the right choice and. In addition, Elena Andreeva told us about cases from her practice when it was necessary to create a harmonious space, using both non-standard elements and non-standard techniques. Elena Andreeva, interior designer, decorator: Graduated from the International School of Design. In 2002, she founded the Well-Design studio, which deals with the design of residential premises. - Planning is the head and basis of everything, and you always need to start thinking about saving at this stage. However, if you have new ideas already in the process of renovation, then they can still be implemented. Knowledge of the assortment It is important to contact high-class designers, because they are the ones who are perfectly familiar with the assortment in furniture showrooms. This knowledge will come in handy in the event that you cannot find this or that element with certain qualities from the selected manufacturer - it is quite possible that it is in another salon, from another manufacturer. It is difficult, but this is a real way out - if there is a goal to save money, then this can be achieved, you just need to make an effort. The use of furniture spacers More recently,I was approached by a woman in whose apartment two symmetrical niches for the library were designed. The client wanted to use the furniture from the same manufacturer from whom she had already bought the kitchen, sideboard and bar. I offered her to make niches to fit the standard furniture of the same manufacturer, but she refused. In this situation, two options are possible. The first is to take standard bases and make furniture spacers that will close these cracks. The second is to apply non-standard bases for the individual size of the already mounted niche and use decorative furniture plugs, which are a recognizable highlight of this furniture collection. The costly method is the one in which we will change the size of the furniture. In such a situation, we are forced to make a choice between beauty and economy. Changing the size of furniture Often there are situations wherewhen in your plan everything is calculated in such a way that all the necessary furniture can fit into the room without any problems, and as a result, the dimensions, for example, of a bedside table, turn out to be large. If you like this piece of furniture so much, then you can theoretically reduce it by a few centimeters. And it is practically easier to buy other cabinets for the available size. Errors with the size of furniture are a common phenomenon that ultimately costs a lot of money, especially if a person does not turn to professionals. Then there are unforeseen expenses. A common difficulty is associated with the kitchen, when it is almost always mounted in a niche, and you have to take the upper or lower part of the base to the local joinery, where they can change the size of the furniture and close the ends of the cuts with veneer or MDF in the color of your kitchen. Now you can adjust the size of almost any furniture. With an individual order, the margin is approximately 30-40% of the cost of a standard product according to the price list. The market is overcrowded, so manufacturers have become flexible enough. In addition, there are factories for which the word "non-standard" simply does not exist. They are exclusively engaged in individual production. Thus, they occupy their own niche, which is highly demanded by buyers. 5 tips from the editorial staff

  • Order a layout with the arrangement of furnitureOnly for an interior designer or an architect. Strangely enough, this step will save you up to 40% of the budget. As the architect in almost any case can find a more affordable alternative, or make an order for local production.
  • When ordering cabinet furniture, make sure thatRemained "technical" gaps on the layout of furniture in niches or in a narrow space. You in fact leave on 2 cm from each party at installation of the washing machine? Do the same with furniture.
  • In the case where the furniture was larger bySize, try to approach the issue without emotion. Consider different options: from the fact that some elements can be filed, to the fact that it is for this furniture you can find another place in the apartment. With the kitchen, this option will not work, but with all the rest of the furniture - easily. We saw many beautiful interiors, where the main violin was played by an object that did not fit into one room, and it had to be moved to another.
  • In case the furniture turned out to be much smaller in size, try to supplement the "stubs" in the local production. For cabinets, you can sometimes make cornices, for kitchens - side plugs.
  • If a piece of furnitureIt turns out to be too expensive for your ideas, specify if there is a similar model with a more affordable "filling". It is likely that the bedside table will cost 30% less if inside it will be finished not with veneer, but with melamine or laminate. And even if you change, say, handles from steel to metal ones. Even buying a kitchen in IKEA, on one hand, you can save decent money.
  • Most of the factories producing corpsFurniture, offers several types of finishes in different price categories: from varieties of melamine and laminate to veneer expensive varieties of wood. The final difference in price can be from 10 to 100%, depending on the volume and quality of the material used.
  • We do not encourage you to take only the cheapestFinishing and the cheapest accessories. We tell you about what you can really save. And to solve, of course, to you. Someone would prefer to take the Chinese counterfeit in natural veneer, and someone will choose the original, but in the laminate. By the way, the last generation of laminates (we speak here only of those used by large furniture factories in the sector from medium and higher) to touch and to distinguish from veneer is no longer possible. They are now warm and rough and the pattern imitating the veneer is immaculate.
