The look and feel of your house says a lot about you. While some homeowners are too nervous to risk a potentially polarizing design, the decision to go neutral can actually keep you from getting the most out of your house. After all, if you aren’t able to put your own stamp on your property, will it ever really feel like home? This isn’t to say you should go totally over the top with your home decor; it should still feel warm and welcoming, rather than overwhelming. But if you’re looking for a way to set your home apart from all the rest, you should consider incorporating customized furniture into your design.
For one thing, custom made furniture is bound to be, by definition, unique. That means that not only will these pieces be guaranteed to fit your personal aesthetic, but they’ll be completely original. If you’re someone who enjoys owning one-of-a-kind high end furnishings, this is definitely the way to go. Customized furniture can be coveted in the same way that antiques are: they’re in high demand and cannot easily be replicated, making you the envy of your guests.
Secondly, unique pieces of furniture can be designed with your family’s needs in mind. Just because you love beautiful and interesting decor doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be functional. Whether you need a durable yet attractive coffee table or chairs that are comfortable and make a statement, customized furniture can often pull double duty. Ultimately, that makes it a better investment and will ensure that even if trends change, your needs will still be met.
Finally, custom pieces can add luxury to your home (and could even impact your selling price). In 2014, Millennials comprised 37% of all households buying furniture and bedding. Since the Millennial generation is starting to make up more of the housing market, it’s a good bet that these buyers are paying attention to furnishings. If you’re planning on selling your home, your custom furniture could actually make the property show valuable. Even if these pieces aren’t actually included in the sale, they can make the space look more opulent, thus fetching a higher price. But if you’re planning on staying put, you can still benefit from the added luxury. You can easily impress clients, work associates, friends, and relatives with a home that’s decorated to the nines.
When tasked with decorating your home, custom furniture may not be your first thought. But it can be an excellent way to make sure your home is like no other on the street. Plus, it’ll allow you to love your space and put your own unique twist on any room.
