Abbey Group

People are talking!

When our oak dining table was damaged during our move we didn’t for a minute think that anyone would be able to restore it to its former state. The table was a wedding present, and so we are thrilled that you have not only repaired the damage so well that we can’t even tell where it was, but the table looks better than it has in years. I’m sure we’ll be back in future, and will be recommending your restoration services to our friends

3 Benefits of having bespoke furniture

26th April 2018

 

New furniture can transform a tired looking room into your unique vision of individuality and style. Bespoke furniture is completely unique to you, being entirely one of a kind and perfectly integrated into your interior. Although there are many flat pack choices in high street stores at competitive prices, the result is that your house looks exactly the same as everyone else’s. And that’s just not right. Your home should be a reflection of you, and thanks to bespoke furniture, that can be done conveniently, and on a budget that suits you. Check out how bespoke furniture can benefit and transform your home.

Exactly As You Want It

Have you ever looked at a piece of furniture in a shop and thought ‘I like it, but I wish X was different’? It’s a fairly common thing, and something most people just learn to live with. But why? Why should you have to spend your days around furniture that you don’t love? Why should you have to compromise and accept the thing you don’t really like into your home, or spend more money to solve the issue some other way? Bespoke furniture allows you to design your pieces from scratch, ensuring you have the perfect piece for your space. With a bespoke piece, you can influence any aspect of its design, from the type of materials it’s made from to how many drawers or doorknobs it has, and exactly what size it is. If you have an awkward space, a bespoke piece of furniture can be made to fit exactly where you need it, and reflect your style while it does. In short – you will never have a piece of furniture that you don’t love again.

Space Saving

You might think this one is a bit odd, but bespoke furniture can actually save you a lot of space in your home. The reasoning is simple – most pieces of furniture aren’t designed to fit into corners, butt up against walls or slot snugly into your wardrobe. Instead, you will find yourself trying to force them into those spaces, and when they don’t fit, you end up with furniture that’s pushed farther out into the room than it needs to be. You might also find that your piece is bigger than you need it to be, but there wasn’t a smaller option, so you have a fair bit of dead space in the piece itself. But another benefit of bespoke furniture is that you can have it made to the exact measurements you need, down to the millimetre. If you have a specific place where you want a piece of furniture, but traditional furniture will likely not fit in the space, then get bespoke furniture. If you want to get furniture that looks perfect anywhere within your home, then do yourself a favour and get bespoke furniture.

Less Cleaning – More Enjoying!

Again, it sounds a bit odd on the face of it, but bear with us. Bespoke furniture requires a lot less maintenance than normal furniture. Not just in terms of what it’s made of – which you can choose to be as low or as high maintenance as you like. But because it fits perfectly into your chosen space, there are no crevices and awkward gaps to fill with dust and crumbs. No giant gaps underneath for the baby’s toys to get stuck under, and no lines of muck to try and clean with the tip of a duster. Your furniture will fit snugly against the wall and the skirting board, and can be designed to go straight down to the floor, so you never have to worry about cleaning under or around it again. So instead of spending your time cleaning hard to reach areas, you can spend more time enjoying your furniture!
