How to save money when ordering non-standard elements of cabinet furniture -

Pros of using non-standard elementsCabinet furniture is the uniqueness of the interior and the solution of a complex problem, which, as a rule, can not be handled with the help of conventional modules. However, when choosing and placing non-standard pieces of furniture, you can face difficulties. To avoid them, we turned for advice to a professional Elena Andreeva - the creator is amazing. The designer has already shared with the readers of Roomble the secrets of the right choice and. In addition, Elena Andreeva told us about the 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, founded the studio Well-Design, which is engaged in the design of living quarters. - Planning is the chapter and the basis of everything, and you should always start thinking about saving at this stage. However, if new ideas have arisen already in the process of repair, they can still be implemented. Knowledge of the assortment It is important to contact high-end designers, because they are very familiar with the assortment in furniture stores. This knowledge is useful in the event that the selected manufacturer you can not find this or that element with certain qualities - it is quite possible that he is in another cabin, from another manufacturer. This is difficult, but this is a real way out - if there is a goal to save, then this can be achieved, you just need to make an effort. Application of furniture spacers Most recentlyI was approached by a woman whose apartment was designed with two symmetrical niches for the library. The customer wanted to use the furniture of the same manufacturer, from whom she had already bought a kitchen, a buffet and a bar counter. I suggested that she make niches for the size of 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 to the individual size of an already installed niche and use decorative furniture stubs that are the recognizable highlight of this collection of furniture. The cost method is one in which we will change the dimensions of the furniture. In such a situation, we are forced to make a choice between beauty and economy. Changing the dimensions of furniture Often there areThe situation when in terms of you everything is calculated in such a way that all the necessary furniture is placed in the room without problems, and in the end, the dimensions, for example, of the bedside table, are great. If you so like this piece of furniture, then you theoretically can reduce it by a few centimeters. And it is almost easier to buy other curbstones under the available size. Errors with furniture sizes are often a phenomenon that costs a lot of money as a result, 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 it is necessary to take the upper or lower part of the base to the local carpentry, where they can change the size of 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 mark-up is approximately 30-40% of the cost of the standard product according to the price list. The market is overcrowded, so manufacturers have become quite flexible. In addition, there are factories for which the word "non-standard" simply does not exist. They are engaged exclusively in individual production. Thus, they occupy their niche, which is very in demand among 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.
