Busting The Myths About Custom Furniture
Commissioning a custom piece of furniture has the main benefit of receiving something crafted just for you. It is like the difference between a shirt bought off the rack and one that has been custom-tailored on your body type and measurements; the first one may look just fine, but the other one will be perfect. Sofas Denver retailers have pretty much look all the same and are extremely generic. With custom sofas you can have them the length and width and depth that you need them for your specifications.
Even so, there are people who avoid the idea of custom furniture, even if commissioning is not at all harder than buying ready-made furniture. So, let’s try to demystify some aspects.
- Custom-built furniture is very expensive
Actually no, not necessarily. It can even be less expensive than ready-made furniture from chain stores and showrooms because large furniture manufacturers have a lot of invisible expenses (designers, sales, factory etc.) that are rolled into the final price; not to mention that mass-produced furniture lacks the quality and attention to details of custom-built furniture.
- Custom-built furniture takes time to be ready
Yes, it does, but it is not that long as you may think and it varies from one furniture maker to another. On the other hand, it takes time to buy ready-made furniture too (unless you are extremely lucky and find immediately what you are looking for, as well as the transportation options).
- Custom-built furniture is not really necessary and will not make any difference
Actually, in some cases it is necessary and it will make a difference. There are people who live in small studios or work in small or open offices, which greatly increase their need for storage space and living space. In some cases, this can be accomplished only with furnishings with shapes and dimensions that cannot be found off-the-shelf. Custom-built furniture is also an excellent option for people with special needs.
- Custom-built furniture is not that special
Being unique, created by people providing great attention to detail, personalized furniture is very special. And it is not just its practical aspect about utilizing the space in the best way possible; people are moving towards this type of furniture to create statements, to invest in pieces that can be shared with other generations to come. For some folks, this is something that provides identity and a sense of satisfaction.
- You cannot re-sell custom furniture
This is not true. Personalized furniture is unique and there are many people out there who prefer investing in unique items instead of paying to have what the next person has. Everyone who moves into a new home realizes how much in-demand custom-built pieces are. So, there is no need to worry about this; you have very good chances to sell customized furniture sooner than ready-made items.
- The maintenance of custom-built furniture is a hard process
We wonder why there’s this preconceived opinion… Personalized furniture only differs from ready-made furniture in terms of design, not in terms of materials. The materials used to create it are largely the same so, logically, they require the same level of maintenance as in the case of mass-produced furniture.
