Unique Custom Furniture For Your Interior Design Project Is Easier Than You Think

June 3rd, 2011

You know the drill. You search the online furniture sites but they don’t seem to have what you are looking for. In your mind, you know exactly what you are looking for. If only someone could transfer the image from your mind and custom design the furniture for you. It is easy and affordable to get custom made furniture.

Actually, there are a variety of ways to have that dream furniture piece made. Some furniture factory outlets want to have a detailed diagram while others will accept a drawing on a paper napkin and create a masterpiece better than you thought. You can even take a picture of an object and a furniture maker can duplicate the product for you.

Surprisingly, handcrafted wood furniture is no more expensive than buying a good piece of furniture at the local retailer. Additionally, you get to pick out the wood, finishes, colors and fabrics, if necessary. Obviously, designs that are more complicated or require complex detail will be more expensive, but the end result will be worth it. You will have a one-of-a kind handcrafted furniture item that will be like having your very own work of art.

While any piece of furniture can be handmade, there are a few that are best for producing handmade furniture:

1. Bar Stools – Custom bar stools can be created based on the height of your bar or counter top.
2. Beds – You can have custom beds and headboards made to fit your choice of frame and mattress.
3. Kitchen Cabinets, Minibars and TV stands – You can have custom cabinetry made with your choice of doors, fixtures and shelves.

Next, you choose the wood, types of doors, number of shelves and fixtures with your choice of height and width for the perfect custom cabinetry. If you are going through the routine of creating a custom piece of furniture, ensure you have the piece constructed of superior quality wood materials like mahogany, teak or acacia. Furniture made using top quality materials will provide you with many years of enjoyment.

When deciding upon a firm to build your furniture piece it is a good idea to review some of their previous work. If you are going to have an entertainment center built for example, look at similar pieces to give you an idea of their work. Highly regarded furniture makers will only be too happy to provide you with a portfolio and references of their previous work.

Also, you need to find out how they want you to submit your drawing and get all costs quoted up front with estimated delivery times. Don’t forget to make sure they include estimated shipping charges and sales tax, if applicable, in their quotation. This will help avoid surprises when your furniture arrives. Finally, ask if they have any discounts or specials. Sometimes making a small change in your design can bring about a considerable reduction in price. A furniture maker takes great pride in their craft and wants you to be happy with the product. All you need to do is visit that online furniture factory from your home or office to get the special look that is in your mind.
