Our designers will help your furniture dreams for any room come to fruition.

Planning Your Custom Order

The first step in ordering custom furniture is determining how many rooms you want to decorate and how many pieces of furniture you want. Whether you need a single piece of furniture or want to decorate an entire room, it’s best to determine a starting point with how many pieces you want. Decide on a budget and a style to start the process.

Choosing Custom Upholstery

Upholstery is one of the most essential parts of your furniture. Durable upholstery is often chosen for rooms with lots of activity or for pets and children. Leather and microfiber are excellent, stain-resistant, durable options for custom upholstery. If you want a classy, beautiful look for a formal room, linen is a wonderful choice. You should feel different upholstery fabrics to decide which options fit your lifestyle and are the most comfortable for each room. It’s best to choose high performance fabrics that offer a higher double rub count, are easier to clean, and more durable. We have hundreds of fabrics to choose from at Greathouse. We’ll help you create custom, eye-catching furniture with your upholstery choices.

Going For Color

The color of your furniture either makes it stand out or blend in. Choosing a color for your custom furniture pieces is one of the most challenging decisions because colors can drastically change the look of a room. Dark colors might make a room look smaller, while lighter colors bring life to the room. Neutral colors can make a room look classic and simple, but grays and tans also show more stains. It’s also fun for many people to mix and match colors and patterns in a room. You can contrast colors that complement each other to give a room a unique look. The color of your custom furniture selections should bring a specific look to each room, complement the functionality of the room, and work together to bring your dream for the room to life.

Size Of Room

Your room dimensions and floor plan play a large role in choosing customized furniture. If your sofa or chaise lounge seems too large or small for an area, it can throw off the feel of the room. You can customize the most beautiful piece in the world, but it is a waste if it doesn’t correctly fit the room. We’ll work with you to guarantee your custom furniture provides the best possible fit for each room.

Plan For Your Layout

There are countless options for any room layout. We can make the smallest rooms work with custom furniture. We’ll help fit unique spaces with customized furniture. We plan for any layout by mixing colors, finishes, fabrics, and styles that complement it.

Remember The Details

The details in a room give it a specific look. Once you’ve chosen the perfect design, color, upholstery, size, and material of a room, it’s time to focus on the touches. The details like stitching, welting, throw pillows, and nailhead trim are important to your furniture in each room. The area rugs you choose for each room should complement instead of contrast the style of the room. We’ll help create customized furniture without leaving out the important details. 

Amount of People

Your furniture selection goes hand-in-hand with the number of people in the room and sitting on it. Whether you plan to host multiple parties, have six kids, or live alone, all play a part in your furniture decision. If you have a small family, you might not need a large living room set. If you have a large family or plan to host large parties, you might choose a full-size sectional with multiple types of furniture in a big room.

Should Your Furniture Blend In Or Stand Out?

Choose the function of the furniture in each room. Do you want your furniture to make a statement or to blend in. If you want to make a dramatic difference, choose a custom-made bench or wingback chair. If you want the furniture to blend in, choose neutral colors with classic designs. If you want to make a statement with colors and patterns, choose bright or deep options. There are no wrong choices, but it’s important to make sure the function of your furniture fits with your idea in each room.
