3 Tips for Planning Your Trip to a Custom Furniture Store

Who doesn’t have a favorite color or a preference in solid vs pattern? We all have opinions, especially on something we’re investing in like furniture. So, when you’ve made the decision to design your own furniture, there are a few key steps you need to take before you come into a custom furniture store, like Room Concepts Furniture. Prepare like a pro by following these 3 tips.

Do your homework.

When you imagine your dream room, what is the layout of your space? Is there enough room on that wall to accommodate a sectional couch? Do you have narrow doorways or tricky steps to navigate that might make that oversized dresser more of a nightmare than the dream solution you’ve been looking for in your home? In order to invest wisely in custom furniture, you need to make plans for the room you have and not just the room you want.

Take measurements – most of us have heard the old adage of “Measure twice, cut once.” This also applies to only ordering once. Stress on the day of delivery is not worth the investment you’ve made when a gorgeous dining set does not allow you to open that cherished sideboard inherited from your great-grandmother because it is too big in your space. Measure your doorways, plan how the furniture will need to be brought into your house, and think about whether a new furnishing will block doorways or windows. Taking the time to plan ahead ensures you will be able to enjoy the new delivery instead of regretting it.

Bring pictures or examples of the color, wood grain, or pattern you desire.

Part of that planning is not only taking measurements, but also realistically addressing whether a trendy turquoise chevron recliner will look appropriate next to your Burberry-style plaid couch. When designing custom furniture, details are important. While our associates are happy to help you discover your style and how to incorporate all of your preferences, it makes the planning even smoother when you have an idea of what those preferences are. Do you crave plush, soft fabrics, or do you care more about textures and patterns? All of these are important to take into consideration before you visit our showroom in either Wexford or South Hills.

For example, Room Concepts Furniture has more fabric samples than your local ice cream shop has flavors. After you narrow down your color palette or know your idea of the perfect fabric family, we are able to better make that dream come to fruition. So, whether it’s a fabric, color, pattern, or your favorite wood that lives throughout your home, we want to make sure it makes its way into your high-quality custom piece from Room Concepts Furniture.

Don’t expect to walk out of the showroom with your piece of furniture that day.

Quality furniture, just like anything else of high-quality, takes time. To get something that is one-of-a-kind, it takes skilled craftsmen weeks to create your masterpiece. Our American made furniture cannot be mass-produced at the rate of the big-box stores, and you won’t find picture assembly instructions in a shelved-box for our pieces. Room Concepts Furniture delivers the gorgeous piece of furniture you’ve been wishing for in your exact specifications, ready to fit your home and your lifestyle.

 

When searching for high-quality, custom furniture, make sure you do your homework, bring examples, and set realistic expectations for your experience. The time it will take you in preparation is nothing compared to the years of enjoyment you will have when you look at the piece you received from Room Concepts Furniture.
