WHAT IS AN UNFITTED OR FREESTANDING KITCHEN?
Freestanding kitchens compose of units such as kitchen islands, welsh dressers, larders, wall units and storage cabinets that are not fixed to a wall or floor – hence the term unfitted kitchen. This makes them easy to configure or move around within a room and reduces the need for costly fixtures and installation on top of your newly purchased kitchen.
Choose Your Freestanding Kitchen Features
The beauty of a freestanding kitchen is in the flexibility – choose a variety of complementary pieces that work for the functionality of your kitchen. Not sure what you need? Have a no obligation chat with our designers and we’ll talk you through the process.
We can work with you to design a dresser to fit into any space – whatever the size of your kitchen – our single, double and triple dressers are made according to your specification.
In keeping with creating efficient work flow around the kitchen, our freestanding larders are handcrafted to suit the functionality of your kitchen, any size and any style.
Hugely practical and a great way to finish a kitchen, our bespoke butchers blocks can be built however big or small you need them. Add additional shelving, pan drawers, hooks and chopping boards to make it work for you.
You have a beautifully designed kitchen but you want to integrate your sink so that it fits in with the overall feel – then a bespoke sink unit can be the perfect kitchen complementary feature.
Fitted or unfitted kitchens?
Many of our customers use a mix of both fitted and freestanding kitchen units within their new kitchen design. Items which need to be plumbed in would be considered fitted items, allowing you the flexibility of placing freestanding larders and dressers any place within your kitchen that suits the layout. Opting for freestanding units with chunky tops which lie close to the wall may also give the feel of a fitted kitchen but without the additional cost. We’re happy to supply exactly what you need – fitted, freestanding or a hybrid of the two.
Why we prefer unfitted kitchen designs
The unfitted kitchen features freestanding, furniture like-cabinetry, often paired with handcrafted items to create a highly personal look. Unfitted kitchens employ a mix of colours and shapes and may incorporate work spaces of different heights and materials according to their functions. There may be a marble slab for pastry making, heat-resistant granite near the oven, and a butcher block.
In an unfitted kitchen, pieces often can be approached from more than one direction, as opposed to in a built-in or fitted kitchen, where elements are attached to the walls all the way around the room
