Why Freestanding Furniture Works for Family Kitchens

Freestanding kitchens have emerged as a popular design choice for family households in the last few years. While standard fitted kitchens are unlikely to ever go completely out of fashion, the flexibility and practical considerations of movable multi-functional units creates a wonderfully versatile kitchen space for a busy family…no matter how big or small.

Let’s take a look at some of the key benefits of choosing freestanding furniture for a family kitchen.

Kitchens can grow with your family

Whether you’re welcoming a new family member, or saying goodbye to those that have flown the nest, a freestanding kitchen can change and adapt in harmony with your household.

Perhaps children have grown up and moved home, and there’s no need for the extra storage space or seating plans? An freestanding kitchen can be reconfigured to suit your new dynamics with ease. Likewise, the expansion of a family can mean more space or additional cabinets are required. You can cater for these changes much more conveniently than if you were to opt for a traditional fitted kitchen.

As your circumstances develop, so too can your space.

A room for all occasions

The beauty of freestanding furniture is that you can design your space in accordance with the lifestyle and needs of your family unit. Aesthetics are fundamental, of course, but in practical terms, your kitchen can operate in a way that suits you.

Perhaps your family enjoys cooking together? If so, you can position units in a way that allows multiple family members in the kitchen at one time. Family dining and congregating can be made easier with a country-style breakfast table or a freestanding kitchen island. You can also section off areas of your space for designated work or homework sessions.
