Planning a library renovation can be a daunting task. There’s so much that has to be considered, from how traffic flows through your space to how you display featured books, magazines, and collections. The library furniture you choose plays an important role in not only how your space looks, but how it functions and is received by your community. It truly can make the difference between a library that’s bustling with activity and is constantly checking out books to a library that looks like a ghost town.
When it comes to selecting furniture for your space, you have a couple of different options. You can buy mass produced items made by a large retailer. Or you can buy custom library furniture, like the items we make here at the Supple Collection.
If you ask us, custom library furniture is definitely the better option. Below, we’ve discussed the benefits of having your library furniture custom made.
Why Our Library Furniture Is Custom Made
At the Supple Collection, all of our furniture is handcrafted and made to order. We make only customer furniture because we believe that it provides better results for our clients because:
- It provides flexibility. Custom furniture can be tailored to suit different sized and shaped rooms. It can also be made to be height-adjustable and mobile, which provides our clients with the ability to rearrange their space as needed.
- It’s higher quality. Mass produced furniture is often made with cheap materials such as vinyl and plastic. Our furniture, on the other hand, is made with durable, sustainable materials like beetle kill pine and recycled metal. It’s designed to last, which saves libraries money in the long run.
Benefits of Investing in Custom Furniture for Your Library
Investing in custom furniture for your library is a great choice that can positively impact your staff, librarians, and patrons. Here are some of the benefits:
It’s made specifically for your library.
There are no two libraries in the world that are exactly alike. Therefore, it’s almost absurd to assume that the same furniture can work in every library when they’re all so different. When you buy custom library furniture, you’re buying items that are specifically made for your space.
You’re in control of how your furniture looks and functions.
When you choose to invest in custom furniture, you get more control over how each item looks and functions. Ever dream of having a more exciting children’s section or study area? Find yourself wishing for more storage in your library? With handmade furniture, these desires can easily become a reality.
Aesthetically, it’s a better option.
Matching colors and materials is no longer an issue. Custom furniture is specifically designed to be compatible with the rest of the décor and aesthetic in the library.
