Pros and cons of the Modular and Carpentry system for Interiors

Execution becomes the main pillar for an interior design project, which can be done in a modular way and also by a carpenter. And the choice should be made by the detailed analysis of both and the finishes they offer. Some units are designed to be carpentry made to  get the exact outlook and finish.

Each furniture and module should exactly fit in the space and complement each other. Precise measurements, systematic cutting and production are essential to ensure prompt execution.
