5 Reasons Why Custom Furniture Is Better Than Mass Produced Pieces

While mass produced furniture companies such as Ikea are incredibly convenient, chances are you will end up with the same sofa, bookshelf and coffee table as half of Britain. Instead of following the masses, why not choose to commission custom made furniture that is as unique as you are? There are a range of benefits that make bespoke pieces far better than their mass produced counterparts. Here are our top reasons why custom furniture reigns supreme!

Custom furniture can be built to the perfect fit

One of the best things about commissioning custom built furniture is the fact that it can be built to ensure a perfect fit. This is great for period homes that have unique features such as bay windows, fireplaces and cornices. Bespoke furniture creations are also ideal for filling that awkward corner gap of vertical space that has been impossible to furnish!

Materials can be chosen to suit individual needs

When you choose a custom furniture designer all the power is in your hands. You don’t need to settle for the cheaper, flimsier and sometimes harmful materials that are used in conventional products. Instead you can choose your materials to specifically meet your personal needs. For example, if your child has asthma you can request that their bedroom bookshelves made from a respiratory friendly material. Similarly, if you are sensitive to toxins and chemicals found in paint you can ask for your furniture to be finished with a solvent free, all-natural product.

Go green

If you are an avid eco-friendly consumer then custom furniture is a great way to bring your passion into every aspect of your home. Empatika offers its clients a range of environmentally sustainable material options such as kokoboard, recycled glass, hemp board and bamboo. These are all environmentally friendly and are also 100% safe, healthy and free from harmful chemicals and toxins.

Create furniture that is as unique as you

If your home is an expression of your personality then custom furniture is the perfect choice for you. You can work closely with the designer to create a bespoke piece that is 100% individual and will make your home truly unique.

Custom means keepsake

While a chain store bed or chair is more or less disposable, a custom creation is something that you can pass on from generation to generation. The beautiful craftsmanship, high quality materials and unique design will ensure that it is treasured for generations to come.   Whether you want to keep fill that awkwardly shaped gap, keep your family healthy or stay true to your eco-friendly morals, custom made furniture is an extremely versatile option that can be catered to suit everyone’s unique needs.
