Custom Made Furniture Fits Your Condo

Congratulations! You’ve just bought a condo and whether it’s your first home or you’re downsizing to be closer to the city, you’re in for an exciting new life in the heart of the action. However, Toronto condos can sometimes be a bit of a squeeze, meaning you might need to rethink your furniture arrangement.

Solid wood can either blend in with today’s castle-in-the-sky interior design, with simple, modern colours, or buck the trend and bring an earthy, rustic touch to your urban home. Colour and design aren’t going to be an issue with solid wood furniture wherever you buy it, but dimensions can be a bit tricky. If you’ve been staring at the floorplans and comparing them with the dimensions of your current dining table, wondering how to make it work, it’s probably best to just let it go and get something newer and smaller. One of the great things about working with our team at Woodcraft is that we build everything to order. If your new condo home has any odd corners or badly placed support beams, we can make cuts or changes to any of our designs. Frustrated by a support beam in the middle of your open concept home? Consider a table that wraps around two sides, making the most of your living space. In the end, planning ahead will save you plenty of headaches, not to mention bruises as you try edge around that table that just doesn’t fit.

#1 Coffee Tables

A sleek, gunstock walnut or ebony coffee table is a space efficient living room solution that will look great, especially in front of big windows and a sprawling view of the city. Get a coffee table made with storage space underneath where you can keep laptops, books, coasters, or odds and ends when they’re not in use.

#2 Workspace

If you’re a freelancer or if you ever work from home, having a great workspace is important, even when you don’t have an extra room for an office. A great desk in the right place, facing out the window with your incredible view, can help you forget about your living space and focus on the task at hand.

#3 Round Dining Tables

In tight spaces like a condominium kitchen or, if you’re in an older unit, a real dining room, round tables can help you make it work without squeezing yourself or your dinner guests. You can find some of our round dining tables like the Queens Table as small as 36”, to seat four, making it an ideal solution when you need to economize on space. The smaller size also means you pay less for the stylish look of solid wood – you can get the Queens Table in wormy maple for as little as $1,800. Plus, the Woodcraft Spring Sale means that all dining tables are 20% off, with an additional 5% off when you order in speckled cherry, and further discounts on dining chairs.

If round isn’t to your taste, our Loft Table is also 25% off, and at 42” it’s ideally suited to condo living. Simple, unadorned, it functions great as a dining table or a workspace, with options for drawers or without, as well as extensions, depending on how you plan to use it.

Your new condo space may demand some sacrifices in space, but by working with Woodcraft, you can still have the furniture of your dreams.
