Custom-Designed Wood Furniture is here to Stay

July 18th, 2016 General

While advances in technology and industry have contributed to a conflagration of easy-to buy, stock furniture, hand-made wooden furniture has always been the preferred choice for furniture shoppers who want a special touch, a unique look, or simply have some custom design ideas in mind. At Woodcraft, we take custom wood furnishings as seriously as people take their interior design choices; and so we realize that nothing will accent your dining room, living room, or bedroom like a unique, custom-built piece of furniture. The rising trend in wooden accent pieces attracts many entrepreneurs to craft their own custom-designed wooden furniture, but without the right workshop, tools, and experience, it’s easy to create inferior pieces. This is why it’s so important to work with the right custom craftspeople.

One of the most obvious benefits of custom wood furniture is that you are not limited in any way and will not be forced to compromise what you really want when choosing pieces for your home or office. Since it is not already built, you have total control over all aspects of the design; the size, style, and wood, as well as the details of molding, decorative hardware, and finishing. At Woodcraft, we understand that you are making an investment, and that is why all of our pieces are built to last — not just as practical home additions, but as potential heirlooms to last generations.

Long-term value

Many people mistakenly assume that out-of-the box factory-made furniture will save them money — especially if they move often or have children. However, the inverse is actually true; after years of owning disposable furniture, many people actively seek out finely built pieces that are more luxurious and stand the test of time because they have grown tired of replacing their furniture every three to five years.

Signature Pieces

Modern home designers stress the importance of what are commonly called signature pieces that make a home a place of elegance and beauty. From the entryway to the bedroom, antique pieces can either enhance an existing style or replace it entirely making guests or family members viewing it for the first time feel like they are looking as much at a piece of art as a piece of furniture. Such pieces are especially coveted in dining rooms where groups gather intimately and the table is often the focal point.

Our expert craftsmen appreciate the construction of original custom pieces, and details as dovetail corners, mortise and tenon joints, extensions, hand-rubbed finishes, and solid wood craftsmanship are all central parts of the process. With 22 different shades of stains to choose from ranging from light to dark, it’s easy to select a color that complements other existing pieces in the home while making the dining table a pivotal point of conversation.

Consider Custom Refinishing

Well designed, solid wood furniture can easily last for generations with proper care, but even the best finish will suffer from wear created by families increasingly — day after day, year after year, decade after decade. Fortunately, Woodcraft offers refinishing on our custom built furniture — or even on an antique you bought elsewhere — so that you can bring new life and beauty to a finish that shows its age, and save up to 65% of the cost of buying new furniture.
