There are a lot of decisions to be made when you want to refinish your kitchen. From the finishes to the flooring, countertops, appliances, and more, it’s important that you think critically about each to ensure your project is completed as you want it to be.

But before you get ahead of yourself, there’s something more important to decide: Whether you want a fitted or unfitted kitchen.

To be sure, many homeowners aren’t quite sure of the difference between these two types of kitchens. However, understanding the differences is essential when you want to ensure your final result is a kitchen that looks, functions, and performs as it should.

Characteristics of Unfitted Kitchens 

Unfitted kitchens are personalised, one-of-a-kind rooms that you can’t find anywhere else. That’s because instead of using uniform cabinetry or brand new furniture, many homeowners use freestanding furniture and handicrafted or repurposed items to mix colours, shapes, and styles and create something truly unique.

Because items aren’t fitted against the walls or other kitchen surfaces, you can use most from multiple directions as well. Additionally, unfitted kitchens give you the option to upgrade over time as no two pieces were necessarily designed to “go together.”

If you’re someone who enjoys regularly upgrading your kitchen or changing its design, this makes an unfitted kitchen a great choice.

Characteristics of Fitted Kitchens

When you’re looking for functionality, uniformity, and to maximise space, a fitted kitchen is your best option. And while these kitchens first came into popularity in the 1950s when matching design was in trend, it’s ability to expand storage and counter space has kept it popular for decades.

Fitted kitchens are most known for their ability to make even the smallest spaces seem large. And, with help from trained joiners in Dunfermline, Fife, Edinburgh, or Glasgow, you can make the most of your space while customising a design all your own.

The best part about fitted kitchens are that they allow you to make the most of aesthetic appeal and functionality, giving you an investment that will stand the test of time whether you choose to stay in your home for years or sell.
