Getting custom oak furniture

I will admit that I am a bit crazy about custom furniture now.

It wasn’t something that was on my radar until recently.

I needed a kitchen table for a smaller dining room and couldn’t find anything of quality. Apparently when you want a smaller table you are choosing something cheap, tacky, and made of pressboard. That didn’t fly with me. So I then found a custom furniture builder and asked about pricing. I figured having someone build me oak furniture by hand would cost a lot. It does, but not as much as you think. Consider all the bigger department stores that offer furniture and what they charge. Having someone make you a furniture piece out of solid wood isn’t that much more expensive. I loved that I got to decide everything. For me the size of the piece was pivotal. I needed it to fit on one small wall in the dining room and be a rectangle. It is only slightly larger on two sides though, so basically a square. My specific dimensions, request for oak, and height requirements made it so custom buying was the only choice. I now have my finished piece in the kitchen and just love it. I am greedy for more custom pieces. The table makes everything in the house look cheap. I want to update my kitchen cabinets, TV stand, ottoman, and end tables. I think everything should match and be done through the same company. Oak furniture looks great, holds up well, and is always classy.
