All About Custom Furniture

When it comes to furniture, we have a tendency to hold on to that which isn’t useful, or trendy, simply because it holds some sentimental value or because it’s out of our budget to get custom furniture…or so we think.

The reality of the situation is, custom furniture can be had in your home without breaking the bank. Here are some tips and tricks to consider when ordering custom furniture.
  • The price is often right: while the initial investment of custom furniture may be more than what you would pay for furniture that you’d get at a big box store, in the long run, it pays for itself. Custom furniture lasts longer and is often made with better materials.
  • Time needs to be on your side: custom furniture takes longer to make than non-custom furniture, so you need to make time. If you don’t have the right time, don’t order custom furniture.
  • Go Green: did you know that repurposed materials can be used in custom furniture? These repurposed materials will help “green” up your space. In addition, repurposed materials last a lot longer as well.
  • Local options: If your goal is to patronize local businesses, then custom furniture is the way to go. Due to the nature of custom furniture, it can only be made locally (transportation, and rising fuel costs, make custom furniture out of town very cost prohibitive).
  • Payment plans: custom furniture outlets offer payment plans that are suitable for any budget – an attractive option for those who have a budgetary concern.
  • Return on Investment: custom furniture, unlike other pieces of furniture, actually gives a good return on investment! A custom sofa that costs, say, $5,000 can easily resell for $25,000, depending on the artisan, time, and date.
