Buying custom furniture can be stressful. We are here to make it easy! These four tips will change your shopping process.
1.Understand Your Wood Type
Hardwoods are sustainable, durable, and versatile. They have denser wood fibers, come with close grain, and require low maintenance. Furniture created out of hardwoods will sustain over your lifetime. Some high- quality hardwood options we recommend and offer include: Walnut, White Oak, Cherry, Ash, and Maple.
Pine is a common softwood used for furniture. It is normally found at a cheaper price point but can be damaged more frequently and has a tendency to move. It is common to see shrinking and swelling of pine as the seasons change.
We fully believe in investing in High-Quality Hardwoods for a table that will last for generations.
2. Look For Quality Craftsmanship
Quality craftsmanship will transform a piece of furniture. An easy way to look for quality craftsmanship is in the joints of the table. Looking at how the table is joined together, at the hinges and seeing the fluidity of the table and base together will speak on the quality of the craftsmanship.
Quality craftsmanship is undeniable. This is an easy way to rule out some of your options.
3. Understand Your Needs
What are you buying your furniture for? How many people are you looking to host? Is your table for intimate family dinners or larger gatherings and parties?
Understanding what exactly you will be using your table for is crucial to make your best decision! Then you are easily able to figure out size and next steps.
4. Find Your Style
Once you have figured out WHY you’re buying a new table, it’s time to create it!
It’s important to consider how your table will fit with the other furniture in your space. What is your decor style of your home? Modern Farmhouse? Modern Industrial? Traditional? Transitional?
Once you know what style you are working with, the fun part begins – the customization process! Select a complementary wood, stain, rusticness, and style to create a piece you will share your life around.
