Building a home can be a long process and even after it seems like it is all ready to go, there are still some final touches that have to be a priority, including furnishing and décor. This important step shouldn’t be an afterthought and one important consideration when choosing fixtures and fittings is whether you want a custom job or something ready-made. Here we will help you with the pros and cons of each.
One of the biggest differences when choosing between custom and premade furnishings is the price. Naturally, a custom made piece will cost more due to the need to make it specially as a one-off product. Premade, on the other hand, is in stock, ready to go at a set price. You know exactly what you are paying and exactly what you are getting, usually at a lower rate.
Freedom in styling
With premade furnishings, you can see the finished product straight away and choose from hundreds of designs and styles right there. However, custom designs mean you can ask for exactly what you want, down to the little decorative touches and accent materials, but won’t see it until it is finished. Custom means freedom in styling and design while premade options offer lots of choice instantly and easily.
Size does matter
Premade furnishings come in standard sizes. If your home is made to standard measurements this is fine, but these days a home’s interior design is just as unique as the furniture we put in it and sometimes a custom fit is necessary. This is where custom made furnishings and fixtures are helpful, with the ability to build something to unique specifications.
Both custom and premade furnishings can be of high quality but you usually pay for what you get. Spending a little more on a premade piece will ensure something of a higher quality, whereas with custom pieces, quality is usually guaranteed, as it is being made to your specifications, including using quality materials and workmanship if you choose.
