So you must have understood that custom-made furniture means making furniture complements that can have particular sizes or shapes that can fit the spaces in the house.

  • Bridging cabinets: perfect for when the bedroom is not large enough to fit a large-sized closet. 
  • Storage benches: another way to get extra space is to have these special benches made that not only provide comfortable seating, but allow us to store many items inside.
