Are you trying to make the room your own with the furniture you choose?
There are so many decisions when it comes to furnishing your home and often finding that perfect piece in the perfect color is impossible. Fortunately you don’t have to wait for the planets to align and the seas to part for the perfect circumstance that brings you the right piece of furniture for your room. Choosing to purchase unfinished furniture offers some of the best options for creating a look and feel that is very personal. When it comes to getting just what you want in your home furniture there is no better way. There are several benefits to purchasing your furniture unfinished.
Personal Touch and Pride
Purchasing furniture that has all of the woodwork completed, but that doesn’t have the finishing touches can provide you with a great opportunity to put your own spin on things. It allows you to find the right colors and treatments that work for your home design and apply them to furniture that you love the bones and structure of. Not only does doing the work yourself allow you to get just what you want, it also will bring some real pride to the project. You’ll always know that you had a hand in making that piece of furniture what it is.
Deciding to purchase unfinished furniture is going to save you money in the long run. The same piece that you purchase finished would cost you far less when you purchase it in the “buff” and ready to be dressed as you see fit. This is one of the better ways to get the same excellent quality furniture that you could find in a specialty shop for a fraction of the price you might pay.
Being able to customize the piece after you get it home is a good reason to purchase unfinished furniture. In addition, many furniture pieces can be ordered to specifics when you purchase them unfinished. This means you can probably get the right size bookcase, end table, coffee table or bedroom set just the way you need it. Custom pieces are a great way to get just what you want and then finish it up to get the best final results.
Another advantage to purchasing unfinished furniture is that there are no secrets. When you purchase wood furniture that has not been stained or painted, you can easily see how it has been put together. The quality is easy to see when you don’t have the piece hidden beneath all of the finishing touches. Additionally, the grain of the wood plays a big role in many furniture pieces and you can easily see this with bare furniture.
Choosing great pieces of furniture can make all the difference in the end design of your home. Quality wood furniture can last for generations and when you purchase them unfinished you can add something of yourself to the design. You’ll know that you have the right look when you do the work yourself and can say you had something to do with how great it looks. With just a little staining or painting you can have furniture that you can pass down and that will have a great story attached to it.
