Custom furniture is one way to make your home an extension of your unique personality. You can be proud that your custom piece exists nowhere else on Earth because it was made to your exact specifications and standards. In today’s Ellecor Interior Design blog, we offer tips for creating a piece that’s unique to you.
1. Look Around
Do you feel there’s something missing in your home? Perhaps you see an empty corner, a dark spot, or a wide-open space that needs an object to fill it. Custom furniture can be something as elaborate as an entire set of kitchen cabinets or a 10-seat dining room table. You may just want a simple corner shelf or end table. Either way, custom-made items fill a need in your home’s interior design.
2. Measure for Measure
Once you determine what type of custom furniture you want, get out your tape measure. Take precise measurements of the space you’re trying to fill. Does your shelf go from floor to ceiling, or just high enough where you can reach? Be sure your custom furniture will leave enough space for people to walk through hallways, stand up behind dining chairs, or move around the living room. Also, account for any accent pieces you may want to make into a set.

3. Think About Your Lifestyle
Consider your lifestyle when designing custom furniture. Do you have children or pets? You might design furniture that stands up to extra wear and tear. For example, rounded tables rather than sharp corners are safer for children and pets. If you love entertaining friends, family, and guests, invest in furniture that resists stains and spills. If clean lines and simple designs help you feel relaxed at home, choose custom furniture that complements your personal preferences and lifestyle.

4. Have an Eye for Color
Pieces can complement, match, or contrast your existing decorating scheme. Smaller pieces, such as coffee tables or end tables, are perfect for adding splashes of color. Larger furniture, including sectionals or dining tables, help create a cohesive look. Draw the eye to custom furniture that isn’t in the same style or color as the rest of the room.
