WHY CUSTOM-MADE TABLE AND HOW TO PICK ONE

Buying a ready-made table and other furniture at the Ikea or furniture boutique is easy and quick. After a certain period of time, did you find some of your furniture not functioning or don’t look as gorgeous as you wanted them to be? Was it because you didn’t think of getting a custom-made furniture instead?

There are many benefits of having a customized table. First, you can pick the right material yourself so you can get the characteristics you want, such as scratch resistance, stain proof, heat resistance, or unique aesthetics.

The second thing under your control is the quality because quality can get out of hand for mass-produced tables. You can discuss with the furniture maker on the specifications of the end product you desire.

The next advantage you get to enjoy is the design of your table. From its shape and size to its height and thickness. The uniqueness of your self-designed tables will complement your personal style and cater to your essential needs.

What to Consider Before You Decide

Dining room tables come in many different materials. As food and beverages have a high possibility to spill on your dining table (especially when you have teens or toddlers around), a stain proof and heat-resistant material is the number one consideration.

Besides the surface finish, hygiene is another vital part to take note when you are choosing a dining table — to ensure your family members’ well-being. Wooden, laminate and stainless steel would not be the suitable materials for they are all absorbent surfaces.

Material Options Available

Below are a few popular materials to showcase your personal style:

Table shapes are quite a personal preference. Traditionally, the Chinese prefer round and oval, the Westerners usually go for rectangular and square. If you prefer not to take any side, why not get a freeform design?

A coffee table is where you find peace while reading a book, drinking hand-brewed coffee, or doing your Yoga routine next to it.

Similar to a dining table, there are numerous materials in the market for you to choose, depending on your overall home design. A coffee table is generally short in height – should not lower than 1 – 2 inches from the seat of your couch (usually around 16 – 18 inches).

It should pair well with your couch size too. If you or your family members like newspapers or magazines, you should get one with a storage layer for your living room to look neat and tidy. Shape wise, a coffee table standard is oval or rectangular.

Working adults spend more than half of their waking time at an executive table each day, while learners need a proper desk for studies. The material and design should provide comfort, sturdiness and nice look.

For example, light colours (white, beige, light brown) give you soothing feelings at home, dark colours (black, blue, grey) offer a formal mood for corporate offices, and bright colours (red, orange, yellow) are usually used for parties or informal occasions.

Outdoor Table

What to Consider Before You Decide

If you own a swimming pool, a balcony, a backyard or a garden, you would need an outdoor table for activities. A lot depends on your own sense of style and preferences as there is no shortage of high quality, attractive furniture made from a variety of materials that are suitable for the alfresco purpose. It has to be tough enough to endure the changing weather – through rain, wind and sunshine. If the table was rinsed with the rain, allow it to dry completely before using or storing. Also, clean it regularly to prolong its lifespan.
