A question that usually arises when furniture is been discussed is: how long will it last? This is a relevant question and I’m sure it’s one you’d also ask when contemplating buying anything, not just furniture. Inevitably this question will lead to another one: custom made or factory made furniture? Hey, just to remind you, the furniture in this case refers to farmhouse tables!
There’s no denying the appeal of this country style table. It brings back the memories of the agricultural era in a simplistic style. Attesting to this is the recent interest in farmhouse dining tables. These are great furniture pieces to have in any home due to the combination of durability, strength and aesthetic charm. They are usually made of wood and the common types: include pine farmhouse tables and oak farmhouse tables. Of course, the design has been improved upon to make them more relevant for modern times.
Now to the question of which type to go for: factory or custom made? I’ll rather leave you to answer that question yourself. However, I’ll try to present both sides of the coin to you before leaving you to decide.
Factory made farmhouse tables
These are mass produced by machines and the design, style, structure and size is left to the whims of the manufacturer. These machine made types do not take into consideration the customer’s unique needs such as: size of the home, taste, decorative theme, and the budget. Often, the priority of the manufacturer is profit making before the table quality. Thus it’s common to use lesser quality materials in order to cut costs.
Custom made farmhouse tables
1. The first attribute about them is that you get to be a part of the designing and production process. You are able to select the style, design and material for your table. Thus it’s specifically made for you.
2. Another benefit of handmade farmhouse tables is that they are of high quality. This is as a result of the thought and planning that goes into making them. Most of the craftsmen that design and carve them love what they are doing due to the joy they derive from constructing this furniture.
3. It also saves you money because you wouldn’t have to worry about incessant cost for repairs. And actually, some of them don’t cost more than what you’ll pay for factory made ones.
