Quality Craftsmanship: A 2022 Design Trend
Sorry, not sorry, Ikea. The days of cheap, prefabricated furniture and cabinets are gone. In its place is something we’re pretty happy about. Quality craftsmanship is trending again!
What is quality craftsmanship?
Quality craftsmanship refers to furniture and cabinetry built from fine materials and made to last. Custom furniture and cabinets, like the ones we design and build here at McCarley Cabinets, are made with quality materials and skills.
High-quality vintage furniture is also made with quality craftsmanship, like the trend we see where homeowners choose vintage tables in place of kitchen islands. We are also seeing more custom details that only come with purchasing from a custom craftsman.
Why Quality Craftsmanship is a 2022 Design Trend
After two years of spending a lot more time at home, homeowners are finding that although prefabricated furniture and cabinets provide a faster, easier choice for updating the home, they are cheaper for a reason. Cheap, prefabricated furniture and cabinets offer less durablity and are more susceptible to wear and tear than furniture and cabinets custom-built with quality materials.
With more families spending more time at home, prefab furniture and cabinets that seemed like the fastest, simplest choice at the time, now showing dings and scratches and other signs of wear and tear. And since homeowners are at home more, those knicks and dings are harder to ignore. Now, they’re already wishing for another update which means pouring out more cash to upgrade furniture and cabinets.
As the old adage goes, you get what you pay for when it comes to furniture and cabinets. If you want high-quality, durable furniture and cabinets that withstand the test of time and your kids, you’re gonna have to pay more upfront.
The upfront cost pays off in the long run. Unless you’re someone who likes to stay super trendy and doesn’t mind updating their cabinets and furniture every few years, you want to spend your hard-earned money on furniture and cabinets built with quality craftsmanship. Plus, high-quality, custom furniture and cabinets can increase your home’s value and appeal to potential buyers.
