Furniture for the home serves a practical and functional purpose and most often is bought accordingly. While branded furniture is the most sought after option, because of the quality and warranty of the product, customised furniture is actually what the majority of people like to buy but may not have the money for.
Both customised and branded furniture have their own pros and cons. Below are compiled 5 obvious difference between the two that will help you decide what you want for your home.
1. NEEDS OF THE INDIVIDUAL
This furniture is custom made to suit your specific requirement or need. It can be done by both furniture designers as well as independent vendors. You can choose to do whatever kind of design you want for your home.
Branded furniture often has standard measurements and designs. Very rarely can they be altered. These are often done by established brands. With this kind of furniture, it is all about trust and affordability.
Prices for customised furniture often varies depending on what goes into them; the material, design and additional accessories. Therefore you can buy furniture exactly as per your budget
Branded furniture prices are pretty standard. Since the material and dimensions are known, there isn’t much variation on the pricing.
Making custom furniture is time intensive and often gets into delays. Therefore, if you are in a rush to put it together for your home, it can be quite stressful.
This furniture on the other is already readily available and modular. It can be bought and fitted anywhere as per the dimensions.
Getting furniture custom made is great for those pieces that are required in unique sizes and dimensions. Because of their odd size which isn’t readily available, such furniture is easy to conceptualise and construct
If time is a constraint and the dimensions of the furniture piece you require are pretty standard, then established brands will have what you are looking for.
5. CHOICE OF MATERIALS
Custom gives you control over what you want to get your furniture made of. With health and the environment being in focus, recycled materials and sustainable wood are increasingly being used to build furniture.
This furniture is usually made with ply, MDF or particle board. While they are all good, the material is also standard and there are no choices available in materials.
