Why Custom is Always a Better Value Over Time

When we purchase poorly made "fast furnishings," there is a good chance they're made with lower-quality materials that will not stand the test of time. This means you'll likely have to replace it more often, which can cost you more money in the long run and more stuff in the landfill. Quality over quantity is always a good idea, but especially in well-used furnishings that demand durability for regular use.

Read along as I share my thoughts on choosing custom furnishings.

Custom furniture and window treatments are better constructed for durability and longevity in several ways. First, they are always made with higher-quality materials. This includes solid wood, high-end fabrics, and durable finishes. These materials are more resistant to wear and tear and will last longer.

Custom furnishings are consistently made with more care and attention to detail by skilled artisans who take the time to do things right. This results in a product that is built to last and is made to fit your specific needs.

Customizing comfort is a huge advantage when choosing your furnishings. When you choose to do custom, you can adjust the overall dimensions of the furniture, such as a sofa, to be wider or narrower to accommodate different body types, particularly height.

The armrests of a chair can be made wider or narrower to accommodate people with different arm sizes.

A dining table can be made longer or shorter to fit a larger or smaller family. You get the point!

When working with my clients, the real fun begins when we start making overall style and fabric selections. There is no limit to custom-designed furniture or creativity. My furniture line includes fabrics with performance options, arm and leg styles, and multi-cushion and back styles, not to mention piping, trims, and other decorative details. All come together to create a unique and bespoke piece for your home. The sky is the limit regarding window treatments with fabrics, trimmings, hardware, and more.
