You've spent months doing your homework, researching, testing and questioning. It's time to finally bite the bullet and buy that beautiful Australian Hardwood custom piece. The dining table; the entertainment unit, those bookcases. But wait, have you thought ...
Is this new item going to compliment? Match? Contrast with your deco? Do you prefer contemporary over traditional? Classic over modern? Are you more of an eclectic collector? What does your style aesthetic reflect?
Is it going to actually 'FIT'? "Measure twice" as they say. It may well be, exactly what you're looking for, but if you can't get it through the door, you've got a different problem on your hands! Width, Height, depth. Measure it, then measure it again.
What about the finish? High gloss? Flat? Raw? Which timber will you select? Do you want a dark cosy feel or more of a coastal vibe, which can be quite different to a seaside escape.
Who else shares your space? Children? You'll need durable pieces that can be secured, so they won't become unbalanced. Pets? Will other family members use this piece too? Is it multifunctional? Easy to clean and maintain?
Is this what you want?
NOW! You're ready.
