"If I can buy it directly from a store, why should I go out of my way to get furniture made-to-order?" is a common question among homeowners. Believe it or not, there are a ton of benefits to having customized fittings for your home.

Similar to bespoke suits and ball gowns, achieving the perfect fit is essential for your beautiful decor, too. The best part? Going this route assures you that you get exactly what you want. If you need a little bit more convincing, here are a few more reasons to invest in a tailor-fit piece: 

1. To express your personal style. 

Your personality doesn't fit in the cookie-cutter designs out in the market. If you've scoured the Metro and didn't find the perfect piece that suits your style, it's best to have it customized.

2. To fit in all the function. 

With condo living or limited space, furniture with dual functions, clearly incorporated storage, and sizes that maximize space are worthwhile investments. For example, you have found the right sleigh bed at a shop, but wouldn't one with rollout storage underneath be much better?

3. For easy maintenance or repair.

Off-the-rack items may be imported at times, and finidng someone to repair it after a few years of use can be an ordeal in itself. If you choose the supplier of your custom-built piece well, they will still be around when it's time to repair its wear and tear. Who would be the most qualified to fix something? The one who made it, of course! 

4. To balance the budget. 

It's a misconception that customized furniture is always more expensive than ready-made items. In most cases, you can always find a made to order supplier in the proper price range. You may even haggle the price lower and save on cash.

5. Custom pieces are always special. 

It may take a bit longer, but good things are usually worth the wait. With a bit of planning and some scouting around, that perfect piece you couldn't find aywhere will find its way to your home.
