I need the things I buy to be able to take a beating as a mother of three boys. That’s why I do my research, so I can make sure the purchases I make will outlast the rambunctious children I am raising with my boyfriend. Everything from the right kinds of wood to textiles that are more long lasting than others, I am determined to make my dollars task for me, however if you’re just going to be replacing it in a year or two, there is not point in buying cheap furniture –that’s not actually saving you any cash at all! It’s just forcing to you to spend more of it further down the road. This is why I don’t waste time trying to get a wonderful deal at a retail furniture store. When I am ready to purchase new furniture for my house, I go to where the furniture will actually last at my custom built furniture supplier. The designers here both listen to what you need, plus can help you figure it out if you’re not certain yourself. They have walls plus walls of textiles for you to feel plus sample to find the right fit for your home. Then you are in control of every aspect of the furniture that goes into your home, from wood to Springtimes plus even filling material! So far I have had my sofa plus loveseat, our study room chairs, plus our kids bed frames all made from this custom built furniture store. They are all six years old now, plus you can’t even tell these pieces are more than a year old.
