Lakota Custom Designs
Solid Wood, Custom Furniture and Accents, Handmade Just for You and Your Home!
What is the particle-board challenge? It's simple: Before you buy a piece of particle-board furniture from one of the big name department stores, talk to me. I can usually build the same thing as a solid-wood, durable piece of furniture. Even if you are just toying with the idea of custom furniture, give me a quick email, call, or fill out my custom-build quick order form. Let's get the conversation started. You'll never know unless you ask.
Handmade Furniture May Not Cost as Much as You Think
The word "affordable" is subjective. The goal of Lakota Custom Designs isn't to replace every assemble-yourself piece of particle board furniture with something that is handmade. That's certainly not cost effective or realistic for many people. That being said, you may be surprised at the cost. It could cost much less than you think. You'll never know unless you ask. If you contact me today I will do my best to give you a quick estimate that comes close to the cost of a formal quote. One of my goals is to get within your budget. Many times it is possible by modifying a design in small ways.
Buy It Once In Solid Wood
Although particle board furniture is cheaper in the short term, how much does it really cost you if you need to buy a "new one" every couple years? Maybe someone bumps into it and it breaks or shifts, or, it doesn't "survive" a move. Spend a little more now and save a lot more later. You should always be proud of your furniture. It is a reflection of you and a defining feature of your home. Take the particle-board challenge today and purchase an heirloom that you can hand down tomorrow. I understand if you'd rather keep it forever, though!
