An empty space in need of furnishing can either be an interior guru’s delight, or a first-time decorator’s dismay. Looking at the space as a canvas on which you can apply your creative flair to will surely make the process easier. Something else worth considering is if you’ll be going the custom or ready-made route.

Bespoke furniture at a fraction of the cost

There is often a general perception that custom-made furniture is a costly extravagance. While this may be the case in some instances, it can also serve as a money saving strategy when furnishing your home. If you use your resources wisely, you could end up saving more than what you expected for quality pieces that last a lifetime.

Adding your personal touch

Ready-made furniture is mass produced, so there’s always a chance you’ll visit a space and see the same piece you’ve purchased. With custom furniture, you have the freedom to collaborate with a designer, choose your own materials, and create unique furnishings that suit both your personality and your space.

Classic and timeless

Unlike ready-made furniture, custom pieces are difficult to interchange if you’re looking to revamp your space. When designing custom furniture, keep in mind that it will have to outlive trends and remain timeless.

All good things take time

The process of manufacturing custom furniture is long and meticulous. However, the craftsmanship put into your piece will reflect on it’s longevity. So if you’re looking to fill your space relatively quickly, custom furniture wouldn’t be your best best.

Instant gratification

There will be scenarios when you’ll need to furnish a space quickly. Ready-made furniture is available immediately, with the occasional waiting time for colours and styles which have to be brought in from the warehouse. Online stores have also made the process of buying furniture simple – with just a click of a button.

No stress, no fuss

There’s a good chance of wear and tear in your furniture the older it gets. Good news is, ready-made furniture will have easily available replacement parts. Maintaining your ready-made pieces should also work out cheaper than rehiring the craftsman who made it.

The importance of quality

When buying new, ready-made furniture, it’s worth doing some research on the quality of the pieces you want to buy. Being tempted to buy ready-made furniture immediately because you like the style and price, could reflect poorly in the quality of your chosen pieces.

Each space has its own requirements

Before buying ready-made furniture, it is essential that the correct measurements are taken for every nook and cranny you’re trying to fill. You could be faced with many restrictions when buying ready-made furniture, especially if you have a unique space with specific requirements.

Careful consideration should be made before furnishing any space.
