Buywood Furniture is a Brisbane-based business with over 40 years’ experience handcrafting high-quality custom furniture in Australia. We get asked a lot of questions about our custom furniture, and a lot of them, we hear time and time again. So, to help, we’ve put together a list of answers to some of your most frequently asked questions.
How Long Does It Take Build a Piece of Furniture?
Every piece of furniture is made to order. Once the design specifications for your piece of furniture are confirmed, our custom-made furniture process can take up to 8 weeks. Ultimately, time varies from piece to piece depending on its size and complexity.
Is Custom Furniture in Australia Expensive?
At Buywood, our custom furniture is designed and built in Australia. Cost varies greatly between all of our pieces, and while many of them require an outlay a few times what you’d pay at Ikea, the cost is relative. What you are paying for is something that’s high quality and custom-made to suit your needs. As a potential customer, you need to consider whether you’d rather spend $5000 on a high-quality dining table that will last for many years, or $500 on a table that requires replacing after a couple of years. If you would like to know more about the prices of our custom furniture in Australia, feel free to give us a call.
Where is Your Timber Sourced?
We offer a range of sustainably-sourced and recycled timbers, both local and imported, to create our custom furniture from Australia. Our selection of Australian timbers is some of the most durable and versatile timbers in the world, and they are also very easy to clean. Other eco-friendly timbers that we use are sustainable wood from sustainable forests and recycled timbers like Jarrah and Spotted Gum.
Do I Have to Assemble the Furniture Myself?
Some of our custom furniture in Australia does require assembly and even custom installation. If you choose to purchase one of these pieces such as one of our bathroom vanities, our team will install your piece for you.
How Do I Care For My Furniture?
We use a 2 Pac finish on all of our pieces to keep your furniture well-protected and maintenance-free for many years. However, it is still imperative to maintain the quality of your custom furniture in Australia with regular cleaning. To clean your wooden furniture, make sure you wipe any spills as soon as you see them, remove dust with a damp, microfibre cloth, remove any sticky spots with a solution of dish detergent and water, and remove stubborn grime using a mineral spirit.
How Can I See Your Custom Furniture from Australia?
If you would like to see our custom furniture in person, you can visit our showroom in Brisbane from Monday through to Saturday. We would love to show you our designs and hopefully give you some inspiration for your own piece of furniture for your home.
