De­sign: Con­sider the pur­pose of the piece and show the maker your idea us­ing pic­tures and words. Choose a crafts­man that has the par­tic­u­lar ex­per­tise you are look­ing for, whether it’s the ma­te­ri­als they use or the style of pieces they make. If you are un­sure of what you want, many can also de­sign fur­ni­ture that will suit the space in your home. Bud­get: Cus­tom-made items are usu­ally cre­ated us­ing a higher grade of wood, of­ten from re­claimed or sus­tain­able tim­ber. While this may cost a lit­tle more, your fur­ni­ture will be sturdy and made to last. Dis­cuss your bud­get ex­pec­ta­tions with the fur­ni­ture maker be­fore the project be­gins. Mea­sure­ments: As well as en­sur­ing the piece is cre­ated to fit per­fectly within your home, re­mem­ber to take mea­sure­ments of the en­try point. If you’re ex­pect­ing a large item, this will avoid a de­liv­ery dis­as­ter.
