A piece of custom wood furniture can be very special. Once completed, it’s sure to have sentimental value as well as well as an aesthetic that suits your home perfectly.
Getting a piece of custom wood furniture designed for your home is very exciting, but it can be challenging too. There are many things to consider when communicating with your designer. With that in mind, here are some tips that will ensure you find the perfect piece of custom wood furniture.
Size is the first thing to think about when requesting a piece of custom wood furniture. You want to make sure that what you end up with fits in your home. Therefore, you will want to decide on a height, width and length that works for you.
Type of Wood
The next thing you will want to do is pick a wood type. Each wood has different colors and grains which will help give your furniture character and this is something you want to consider when choosing a wood type. You will also need to think about whether you want to go with a hardwood or a softwood. For the most part, hard woods are a more durable choice, but that is not always the case.
If you are not sure what type of wood you want, you can ask the company you are working with to send you samples. This should help you with the decision-making process. Urban Wood Goods is proud to provide complimentary swatches to our customers!
Now comes the fun part. Deciding on the style of furniture you want is the part where you can really get creative. Start by thinking about your existing furnishings and the overall look of your home. Is it a country home? Sleek and modern? Luxurious and elaborate? Go from there to decide on what style you want your furniture to express.
If you have never designed a piece of furniture before, it’s a good idea to look at existing styles and take your inspiration from them. So, for instance, if you are looking for a dining room table for a country style home, you will want to google similar furniture items to find a look that works for you. Then add your own unique touches to make it yours.
Wood has its own beauty so you may want to go for a natural finish but there are also stains you can use to give your furniture a unique tone. In some cases, you may want your product not to have a finish. Talk to your designer to come up with a solution that’s right for you.
Of course, you may want to add additional customizations to your piece to get it just perfect but having the basics down will get you off on the right foot. We wish you the best of luck getting the furniture you have always dreamed of!
