If you’re looking to furnish your home with interesting and unique pieces, nothing beats your own bespoke furniture. Bespoke furniture is crafted to your exact specifications, made to fit your own home, and designed with all of your style and function requirements in mind. When you consider all of the benefits of bespoke furniture, it’s easy to see that shop-bought furniture just can’t compare. We’ve pulled together a list of five reasons why having bespoke furniture in your home will bring you nothing but joy.
1. Individual design
The beauty of bespoke furniture comes from the fact no one else in the world will have the same piece of furniture as you do. You won’t see your dining table and chairs in your neighbours’ home. You won’t discover that the bed you had specifically designed for your bedroom is the same one that your best friend has, and you won’t find your bespoke kitchen is the exact match as your mother-in-law’s. When it comes to bespoke furniture, the buck stops with you. Your design, your style and the size you need, crafted in the materials of your choice. It will be unique to you.
2. Built to last
How many of us have bought an item of furniture from a high street chain only to find the quality just doesn’t meet expectations? It looks good for a year or so and then loses its lustre. There’s a reason high street furniture stores are able to offer cheap prices, and that’s because more often than not, their furniture is made using cheap materials. With bespoke furniture, that’s simply not the case. Bespoke furniture is designed and made by highly skilled craftspeople. What’s more, because each piece of furniture is built to the needs of the person ordering it, we’re able to match the right materials to ensure it meets your needs.
3. Work to your budget
Many people believe that bespoke furniture is out of their price range. However, when you consider that bespoke furniture is made to last a lifetime, it can actually end up being more cost-effective than buying it from the high street. Store-bought furniture doesn’t last as long as bespoke pieces, so you’ll have to replace them more often; which isn’t just a faff, it’ll leave you out of pocket too. Opt for bespoke furniture, however, and you’ll be able to choose options that match your budget. If it’s a bespoke kitchen that you’re having crafted, you’ll be able to pick and choose specific finishing touches, such as soft-close doors, handle designs, and materials. This is great news if you want a quality product, but still need to keep an eye on the end price.
4. A match made in heaven
Bespoke furniture is a great option if you’re looking to furnish a room that has some quirky features. Whether it’s a low ceiling height, an awkward nook that standard furniture won’t fit in, steps, or a chimney breast that’s in the way, bespoke furniture will be made to measure. That means there’ll be no worrying whether it will fit, because it will be crafted to your room’s dimensions.
Throughout the years, there’s no denying that handmade furniture has – and always will be – much more prized than mass-produced furniture. The finish is always of a better quality and the materials used are superior. If you’re choosing a bespoke kitchen, knowing that it has been made to suit you and your family’s needs will bring joy and pleasure for years to come.
5. Tricky fixes
Our homes are often blessed with their own quirky traits. If your home is a period property or listed building, you might enjoy a little more of these than more modern properties. We’re talking old windows, large doors, inglenook fireplaces, and non-standard sized rooms. While many people may look at these traits as problems, we say, embrace them!
That’s because bespoke joinery can help resolve any issue. Old windows can be replaced, non-standard sized doors can be created anew, and furniture pieces can be built to fit a specific space. Older homes are as unique and individual as we are, and bespoke furniture only serves to highlight all these special nuances. Embrace your home’s quirks with bespoke furniture that will show off all of its best bits.
