Painting fitted furniture causes less disruption to your daily life than replacing it does. This is particularly the case with fitted furniture such as wardrobes. Replacing items like this almost always leads to the need to redecorate the entire room.
You can however achieve a new stunning look in a few days with little or no disruption as opposed to days/weeks of ripping out old furniture and replacing it with new units.
There’s no question that painting your fitted furniture is far cheaper than buying new units, you can get the look and feel of a brand new piece of furniture at a fraction of the cost.
