The Best Bespoke Furniture when Renovating the House

If you’re revamping your home or you’ve just moved into a new house that needs some touching up, you may be considering which furniture items are better to order customized. Here’s some tips and tricks on which pieces you should order as is and which you should think about ordering custom:

So you’ve got an interior design project in the horizon: thinking about and planning every room of the house, right down to the last detail. So which things should you order direct from the furniture and kitchen stores, and which should you have customized? The first rule of thumb is that if you’re working with very small spaces like a loft or studio apartment, you may want to think about customized furniture. Considering you will be living there for a while, the investment will be worth it to have furnitures like wardrobes and TV stands that are perfectly dimensioned to fit your compact living space.

Even in a regular sized home, you will want to think about customized furniture starting with the bedroom. Most bedrooms are quite small anyway, so think about perfectly proportioned dressers and wardrobes here, especially if your sleeping space is void of a closet. Most companies make it very easy to go online and plan your own customized wardrobe from preferred measurements to color and finish. Even if you do have a closet, and are lucky enough to have a walk-in closet, every girl’s dream, you may want to consider some personalized options for shelving and storage. Considering design ideas like this will not only give your space a clean cut and precise look, but it will also be the best way to maximize space.

Still speaking about the bedroom, what about the bed? Here I would say that it is your call. A bed is a furniture article that is quite important, something you want to invest in because you want to have it forever. When we speak about customizing the bed, we’re mainly speaking of the bed frame. If you’re quite selective about materials and dimensions, go custom. Otherwise, you can buy some top-notch frames out there, and the one thing you absolutely want to splurge on, if anything, is the mattress. Your back will thank you later.

For all your window accoutrement, curtains, blinds and the like, I would go custom here. Surely after you’ve chosen your sofa and other large furniture items in the sitting room, you’ll be ready to add the accents. At this point you’ll have a better idea of what shades you’re looking for and you can have complete control over the color, material and texture of the curtains. Don’t forget as well that windows will come in all different shapes and sizes. How many times have you gone to the home goods store and there’s only 2 curtain measurements to choose from? Then you come home and find that they are nowhere near long enough or wide enough to accommodate your windows? Avoid all of that decorating headache and go for a personalized option.

Now let’s talk about an integral part of the home: the stairs. The staircase has become quite the focal point in interior design projects as it’s no longer a structure to just connect two floors, now it is a design element that makes a statement. Whether it’s connecting your first floor to your second, the stairs to your loft, or an outside stair from the garden to the upper deck, explore the option of customized staircases. Play with materials, colors and shapes to fit all your design needs. If you’re eco-friendly, explore options in sustainable designs and materials. Go spiral, modular, or even minimalistic with some floating stairs. The possibilities are quite endless.

For the most important part of the house, the kitchen, this is also your call. It gets to be quite a pricey project, but one that you will have forever. Maybe over the years you will need to replace appliances, but if you invest in a modern and well-built kitchen now, it will have that timeless style that will last through many ownerships of the property. Go for long lasting materials here as well, right down to the flooring. Remember that the kitchen will most likely be one of the most "lived in" rooms of the house. Choose something like ceramic tile flooring that is resistant to scratches, stains and abbrasions, or granite or marble countertops. 

Make your next home interior project fun. Whether you’re buying straight from the store or engaging the help of a contractor for personalized pieces, be patient and realize it takes time to realize your dream home.
