Your home is probably where you spend the majority of your time. It’s your home after all, it’s where you relax and unwind, entertain, work, study, sleep, and so much more. With that in mind, it makes sense to make sure your home works exactly the way you need it to. Whether that means improving accessibility, making more efficient and effective use of your space, or maximising your home’s storage and/or display capabilities – your personal goals will determine how you approach it. But what if there was an easy way to give yourself a home that simply just works? Well, there is…
Modular furniture can transform your home for the better
You might have heard of modular furniture before, but if you haven’t, there’s never been a better time to discover it. These clever, adaptable furniture systems let you create a home that revolves around your exact needs, whilst giving you the ability to maximize space without sacrificing functionality or aesthetics.
But what actually is modular furniture?
In its most basic form, modular furniture is a furniture system built using a collection of “modules”. Depending on the system, these could be anything from stacking or interlocking cube shelves, to the more unique systems that revolve around different shapes and sizes of shelving, desks, cabinets, planters, spacers, and much more.
The modules are put together to create unique combinations and configurations that fulfill different needs and requirements. For example, you could create a large-scale bridged TV unit that not only provides the perfect place to mount and watch your TV, but also provides a huge array of storage for different multimedia collections and peripheral devices, or even displaying your most prized possessions and artwork. But that’s not even the best bit.
Modular furniture can be changed at a moment’s notice. Want to downsize that large TV unit? Simply remove some modules. Want to add some extras? It’s just as easy to add new modules. With systems such as the Shelved modular furniture system, you could even add things like a beautiful matching desk module, creating a 2-in-1 multimedia and home working/study space in an instant. The Shelved system is incredibly easy to assemble and alter, so adding on new features is quick and simple.
What are the other benefits of owning a modular furniture system?
Some of the benefits we’ve already mentioned are just scratching the surface. Modular furniture can be incredibly advantageous for your home in a huge variety of ways.
Furniture that evolves with you
Your life changes. It’s just how things go. Sometimes that means that your home changes too, whether that means re-organising things in your existing house/apartment, or moving somewhere new. Modular furniture is designed with those moments in mind, meaning you can change and adapt your furniture at any time. If you need to move it to a new room, simply change the configuration to make sure it fits. It’s an intelligent characteristic that makes moving a breeze, even enabling you to take tricky home features like low beams and sloped ceilings into account.
Maximise your space, even when space is limited
In a similar way to what was said in the last section, the adaptable nature of modular furniture lets you prioritise your space in an incredibly efficient way. The fact that you can alter and adjust your furniture to compensate for tricky areas and features means you’re not tied into buying things that are specific shapes/sizes because of said features in your home. But it’s not just the adaptability that helps you make better use of your available space. The fact that you can combine a multitude of different modules (depending on the system) lets you create multi-use spaces in minutes. Combining bedroom storage with a handy home office space for example, means you no longer have to cram large desks into a small space, sacrificing practicality. Plus, modular furniture like the Shelved system also boasts an extremely compact footprint, reducing intrusion on your much-needed space even more.
It’s not just one piece of furniture
With so many modules at your disposal and a nearly endless list of configuration options, you don’t just have to settle for one enormous piece of furniture. This is especially true when you’re looking to change things around a little. If you’re sizing down for example, you might find that you have a few spare modules that you may not know what to do with. But, you can always use those modules to create another piece of furniture. You could either use this in the same space and take advantage of the consistent décor, or take your second piece to a different room altogether. It’s entirely down to you and your needs.
Bespoke furniture, without the bespoke downsides
It’s undeniable that bespoke furniture is incredibly useful. But it’s also quite a large investment, and you typically have to have it installed as a more permanent fixture in your home. Modular furniture gives you that same bespoke feeling, but at a fraction of the price and without the permanent commitment. You can’t take conventional bespoke furniture with you if it’s installed when you move house, or change it to another room, at least not without the involvement of some hard work and potential irreversible modifications. Modular furniture doesn’t carry that burden, giving you the freedom to move and change things around with the long-term commitment.
Perfect for… everywhere
You can use modular furniture almost anywhere you want to, especially if it’s a durable, high-quality system. You can use things like modular shelving for stepping up your living room storage space, and that same shelving could also be used for boosting your garage organisation, storing pots and pans in your kitchen, keeping your clothes in check in your bedroom, or even used for retail and display purposes in the commercial world.
