In addition, for better use of space, it is important to know the needs of the residents of the house or apartment, in order to adapt the project to these demands.
Regarding the budget, it is important that you make at least three different budgets with custom furniture companies or modular kitchens, in order to be able to choose the best cost-benefit.
