Custom furniture benefits:
1. Aesthetics the way you wantDesigns to complement your lifestyle.

Custom furniture allows you to choose from a variety of colors and need-based designs. It is important to create something that compliments the layout, floors, walls and the other furniture in your home.  Ready-made furniture often forces you to compromise on design or color. Don’t compromise!

One of the hardest parts about designing or remodeling your home is finding furniture that helps you realize your vision. Sometimes you’ll find the perfect piece but it will be the wrong color, size, or material. You will not have that problem with custom furniture.

2. Better space utilizationMaximizing space not possible with pre-made furniture.

Custom furniture makes the most of what you have to work with. It can create clever solutions that turn dead space into handy storage areas, keeping your home functional, attractive and clutter-free. This can make your home a more pleasant place to live and more attractive to potential buyers.

Sometimes, pre-made furniture just doesn’t fit. Maybe you like that arm chair in the show room, but it’s just too big for the living room.  Or perhaps your family room is a strange configuration, with walls that jut out or slanted ceilings, making it difficult to find the right furniture. Pre-made furniture not designed specifically for a room can result in dead space. Custom furniture can eliminate dead-space, utilizing all available space in a given room, making the room more aesthetically pleasing.

3. Improved ergonomicsDesigns that reflect your living habits, body structure, and health. 

In a national study by Roper Research, closest are considered the second most desired feature in an ideal home – second only to a great kitchen. Closets are used at least twice a day every day and contain our most important possessions. The average American spends 140 hours per year every year looking for lost objects. Custom closets would reduce that time to minutes.

A custom closet maximizes space and greatly improves organization. No more digging through boxes or pulling everything out of the back of closet to find something you lost. Custom closets make it easy to stash things away in an orderly fashion and find them when you need them.

Return on investment Many report increased resale home value including developers.
Custom Furniture is more durable, made with superior materials that increase the quality and life expectancy. The low priced sofa or dresser that seemed like such a bargain at the furniture store is not going to last anywhere near as long as a custom sofa or dresser. Pre-made furniture is also less likely to add to a home’s resale value.

When you choose to create custom designed furniture, you are in control. You choose the color, the wood, the size, the design and eventually how it looks. Anything is possible.  The best part is that it gives you the opportunity to create an environment to meet all of your needs, while making a sound investment at the same time.
