Difference between readymade and custom made furniture

FURNITURE

Lots of people are confused in terms of whether to go for ready made or custom-made furniture, wardrobes, modular kitchen, TV unit,etc.They often ask why custom-made furniture is costly compared to furniture which is available at furniture stores. We thought to cover up this topic to explain what are the major differences between ready-made and custom-made furniture.

To start with we should know what type of materials a carpenters use to make furniture:

1)      Particle board made of 70-80% as wood powder.

2)      Commercial ply(BWR plywood and MR grade plywood)

MR is moisture resistant while BWR grade is waterproof plywood. BWR is of better quality compared to MR grade.

Ready-made furniture which is available in the market is made from 80% particle board(board made of wood powder) The laminate used on it is 0.3 or 0.4 which is called as paper laminate and edge binding is done on the edges which is very thin. Most of the furniture that you see in any furniture store are made in their factories and most of them do not use commercial ply as the quantity they make is in thousands.

The furniture which a Carpenter makes is from commercial ply either BWR or MR ply. There is difference in price of both but the quality of furniture which a carpenter make is very good and durability for long time because of good quality of ply. And even you can choose the type of ply,color of laminate to make your custom-made furniture. Carpenters and Interior designers in India often refer to BWR grade plywood as Marine ply.

Difference between ready-made furniture and custom-made furniture.

Custom made furniture:-

  1. Design as per your choice:
  2. Custom made furniture last for longer time.
  3. Add more value to your home
  4. Maximize space
  5. The damage control with custom-made furniture is lower than with ready made furniture. Because of the used materials.

Ready-made furniture:-

  1. As the shopkeeper adds his profit margin on every individual item plus they don’t give any warranty or guarantee on the product.
  2. The ready made furniture doesn’t fit in our home properly
  3. As ready made furniture are made of particle board most of these are not water-resistant.
  4. Ready-made furniture does not last long if proper care not taken as its made of particle board which is just wood powder.

But at the end choose the furniture after proper research and decision because there are merits and demerits in both ready made and custom made furniture.

Choose the perfect coffee table

hemnes-coffee-table__0104030_PE250678_S4

A coffee table isn’t just a place to keep newspapers and remote controls. Instead, it forms the very heart of your living room. It defines the ambiance of the room and lends a definitive character to it. Coffee tables serve several purposes from completing a special look to your living room, to storage and display. But the question is which style will fit your living room? Should you go for a wood one with chunky legs, metallic with a glass on the top, should it be round or rectangular or any other shape? An ideal coffee table must strike a balance between functionality and aesthetics. At the same time, it must complement the general decor of the living room and blend in with other elements.

Below are some tips that will help you to choose the perfect coffee table for your living room.

1) Budget:

Decide how much you want to spend for a coffee table,because the price range of a coffee table can be from ultra expensive to budget friendly. Your budget could be based on types of materials such as hardwood, metal, glass and size, shape and design of the table.

2) Size and distance:

Size and distance of a coffee table matters most while deciding a coffee table for your living room. A regular coffee table height is usually between 16 to 18 inches. This should put the table at about the same height as the top of the sofa seat and chair cushions. It should be not lower than 1-2 inches from the seat of the sofa. The ideal distance of a coffee table should be close enough so that you could reach out to put your drink, magazine from all angles. Also keep in mind that you leave some space for passerby, to reach out to TV stand.

3) Shape:

While the shape of the room can play a role in choosing a coffee table, pay attention to your seating configuration more than anything else. If you have children at home a round or oval size coffee table is a smarter choice as it is safer for children if one falls or bumps into it. Also its useful for large gatherings. A rectangular share coffee table will allow some space between the TV and the coffee table to walk past.Rectaunglar or oval size coffee table is ideal for a smaller room.

4) Style and material:

Once you have zeroed in on a perfect size, focus on the material and style of the coffee table. Always your sofa and coffee table should strike a balance.Formal, informal,modern or vintage these are all styles to be considered when purchasing a coffee table. Coffee tables can be made using wood, chrome, plastic, glass, bamboo metal, and wood veneers. If you are looking for something stable and affordable, wood veneer would be an ideal choice. While wood brings warmth to a space, its heavy in nature so choose a narrow table which will not look bulky. You can try a metal coffee table if you have too much woods furniture in living room, so choose a glass table with a metal base cane be a nice complement.

The level of functionality your coffee table offers depends on how you want to use it. While most coffee tables have a flat surface supported on a base, there are plenty that offer additional features.

Bedroom-wardrobe-design-ideas-wardrobe-design-ideas

When it comes wardrobe almost all of us think whether to go for custom-made wardrobe or ready-made that is cheaply available in the market. So what are the pros and cons of custom wardrobe vs ready-made wardrobe? Which one to go for? Which is cheaper? Which will last longer? You will get answer to all these when you finish reading this blog about pros and cons of custom-made wardrobe.

Pros:

1) Design as per your choice:

Custom-made wardrobe can be designed the way you like it. You can make different arrangement as per your requirement or if you are renting the house it can be flexible for them too. So instead of going for a ready-made which sometimes not flexible as per your requirement most people opt for custom-made wardrobe. Also you can choose the custom-made wardrobe to be made as per your design, colors,materials to be used and more.

2) Add more value to your home:

Custom made wardrobe can also include more value to your home.As when you want to sell or rent your home, it will be considered as furnished home,so the sell value of your house increases when you consider the custom wardrobe. As often we see home with proper custom wardrobe, cabinet,etc  are more attractive to the buyers than those which do not have.

3) Maximize space:

If you require more storage space in your wardrobe than custom wardrobe are the best to choose for. It maximizes the space for your requirement and give enough space to keep your items the way you want it to be.

Cons:

1) Expensive:

If your budget is too tight then going for custom wardrobe is not a good option because compared to ready-made wardrobe custom-made are expensive. So make sure you compare the price of ready-made wardrobe and custom-made. To calculate the price of custom-made you can consider the price of materials + total area of wardrobe* square feet charges per area from local carpenter.

But even though you will get a ready-made wardrobe outside at a cheaper price, it’s better to choose a wardrobe which will last longer than going for a cheaper one, because cheaper price comes with cheaper quality also.

Custom made wardrobe have always more pros than cons. So if your budget is in place and if you want a wardrobe which will last longer. We suggest you to go with custom-made than a ready-made which looks good to the eye and cheaper too but most of them do not last long and even it takes time to find the one which will fit your requirement and will look good to your house.
