Whether you have a brand new home or just acquired the office space of your dreams, one thing is certain—you’re going to need furniture. Great pieces of furniture not only fill up space but also add personality to your home or office, so it’s important to think carefully about the layout you want and how each piece of furniture fits into your vision.

Choosing the right pieces can be quite overwhelming with so many options. What looks good? What message do you want to convey with your aesthetic? Will those stylish chairs be comfortable? There are just so many questions you might have!

If the very thought of having to answer these questions sends you into a spiral, you may want to hire a furniture designer. Not only will you have someone helping you navigate through tough decisions, but you’ll also end up having bespoke furniture you love that also looks amazing. Check out some of the benefits of hiring a custom furniture designer that our team at Knossos Furniture has shared.

Customized Furniture To Personalize Your Style

One of the greatest benefits of hiring a furniture designer is the uniqueness of your pieces. Retail furniture stores are full of mass-produced pieces you can find anywhere. Because of their accessibility, you may have the same couch as your neighbor. Even with different decorations and a different feel, it’s the same furniture. Your home should be as unique as you are, and your office should give your clients an idea of the company they are about to work with.

A furniture designer can create one-of-a-kind furniture that no one else has, making you stand out from the crowd. For your designer to get a feel for what you want and who you are, you’ll need to meet (in person or via video chat) to discuss your vision. Be as open and transparent as possible so the designer can bring your personality into the piece.

Designer Furniture Lasts Over Time

You may be thinking that custom-made furniture will be more expensive than going to your local furniture shop, and perhaps that will be the case initially. However, most mass-produced furniture from a big-box furniture store will be more expensive in the long run due to the lower quality of materials and workmanship.

When you invest in a furniture designer, you’ll be in control of what materials you want the designer to use and how you want the piece to look and function within your space. A qualified designer will create your piece, taking your suggestions into account and paying attention to detail. In the long run, you’ll save money with your custom piece because you won’t need to replace it in a few years, as you would need to with much pre-made commercial furniture.

Modify Your Furniture To Fit Your Comfort

Usually, people fall in love with furniture because of its looks. Just looking at some pieces can make you feel like you’re staring at a work of art. But is it comfortable? When thinking about furniture, you can’t lose sight of its practicality. Chairs are meant to be sat on, and nothing is worse than sitting on an uncomfortable chair. A good designer will help you create modern furniture that is as comfortable as you want.

On the other hand, comfortable chairs are not always the best choice when it comes to commercial furniture design. In some contexts, they can make a space feel too comfortable, taking away from the seriousness of the environment. A furniture designer can help you find balance in your choices and provide the ideal comfort level for your needs.

Showcase the Company’s Culture

Commercial furniture designs can set the tone for your office space and showcase your company’s culture. The design of an office will establish the tone for the company’s expectations regarding its staff while also creating a lasting first impression on potential clients. Have your company stand out from the competition with unique pieces that tell the world, “This is a place you want to be.”

Add the Latest Trends to Your Property

Your style is ever-changing and evolving, so why shouldn’t your furniture be as well? Adding the latest furniture trends to your home or office is much easier to accomplish with a furniture designer. Designers constantly keep up with new styles and can introduce you to ideas you hadn’t even thought about. Stay one step ahead of the game when you add a trendy new piece of furniture to your home or office.

Make Spaces More Functional 

The amount of furniture you need will greatly depend on the size and layout of your space. Furniture that is too small can seem like it’s lost in large areas, and large furniture can make smaller spaces seem cramped and unappealing. Another benefit of working with a furniture designer is that they can assess your space and customize the furniture to fit to scale. If you already have some furniture, your designer can create pieces that match the existing ones and bring the room together.

Create a Lasting Impact With a Designer’s Expertise

Finally, having a furniture designer opens up a world of possibilities. They have connections and resources that are not readily available to everyone, and that can make a world of difference when it comes to your desired outcome. Be open with your designer about your expectations, but also have some flexibility. Their experience and input are valuable, so ensure you allow your designer some room to create your vision with their experienced suggestions.
