How many times have you walked into a furniture store and wondered how many other people have that same sofa? Finding out that you just spend thousands of dollars on the identical bedroom set that a friend has can be frustrating, at the very least. However, buying custom furniture can eliminate those concerns.
Your furnishings should reflect your personality and lifestyle. That does not mean you have to pay thousands more than what a showroom is offering. Yes, you will pay slightly more for custom made furniture than an off-the-floor piece, but it will be worth it.
Whether you are furnishing your very first home, or remodeling for the umpteenth time, opting for personalized, handmade furniture over mass production can take your home to the next level.
For some people, the thought of buying custom furniture can be daunting. How will you know what you want? That is where the services of an interior designer can be invaluable. As you can see in the renderings below, your designer will sketch out drawings for your concept. You will be able to provide input as to what features and custom ideas to incorporate into your new furniture.
There are five benefits of buying custom furniture that we will explain today:
- Higher quality
- Good Investment
- Perfect function and fit
- Exact color and size
Higher Quality Benefits of Custom Furniture
The cookie-cutter approach to furniture manufacturing means assembly line products filling up the floor of your favorite showrooms. To get top quality mass-manufactured furniture, you will likely need to go to designer showrooms and pay higher prices.
The other option is custom furniture manufactured to your specifications from master builders. The builder will pay attention to every detail, ensuring that the finished product meets your expectations. Remember, when you pay for custom furniture, you get long-lasting quality at the same time.
Custom Furniture Is a Good Investment
Some people naturally equate custom furniture with designer furnishings. That is not the case. Of course, you can go the designer route if you desire. However, custom does not always mean high prices.
Your designer will work with a custom furniture manufacturer to stay within your budget for the project. Options for wood, style, and materials will help create a unique look without breaking the bank.
Custom Furniture is One-Of-A-Kind
Unlike the standard showroom sofa available in three different colors, you have the option to choose from a myriad of fabrics and designs. Best of all, your new pieces will be unique, one-of-a-kind furnishings that you will not see in your neighbor’s home.
Your, and your interior designer’s imagination can be put to work creating a piece of furniture that speaks to your dreams, desires, and needs.
Custom Furniture Provides the Perfect Function and Fit
Function and fit are two primary reasons why people turn to custom furniture manufacturers. Perhaps you have an oddly shaped wall and need a wall-unit to fill the space, or maybe you want hidden compartments or unique shelving to display your collectibles. Having furniture custom built to your space specifications beats carrying around a tape measure from showroom to showroom.
First, we look at function. What do you need the piece of furniture to do? Then we turn to the space and consider the fit. Whatever your need and requirements, custom, handmade furniture can provide the answer. Whether you are looking for simplicity or a piece that is complex, your needs can turn into spectacular designs.
Another benefit of having furniture crafted to your needs is the incorporation of electrical and wiring needs. This is an especially important feature to consider when designing an entertainment center. You may want to change stereo or television components in the future. Ease of getting to wiring can make quite a difference when the time comes. Your interior designer also knows the type of craftsmen necessary to complete your project. An electrician may be necessary if you are installing lighting in a unit.
Get the Exact Color and Size You Need from Custom Furniture
From wood to fabrics to laminates, custom designed furniture can incorporate different materials and patterns to meet your requirements, as well as your desires. You do not have to settle for the three options offered by the furniture store. Only your imagination can hold you back – but do not worry, your interior designer will help you along the way.
Remember, your designer knows reputable furniture manufacturers that can create what you want at a reasonable price.
