What are the Benefits of Bespoke Joinery?

Bespoke joinery might cost more than big-name-chain alternatives, but consider the benefits of tailor-made furniture before you spend another few hours in the halls of Swedish design.

Perfect Fit

One of the key benefits of bespoke joinery is how it is tailor-made to fit your space. No need to worry about measuring up before buying and worrying that it won’t fit – your joiner will create something that fits perfectly, nook and crannies included.

A Perfect Match

A joiner will also be able to create something that perfectly matches your existing furniture. One of the hardest parts of buying shop-bought furniture is finding something that matches what you already have, but a joiner will be able to source similar materials and create a design that fits.


Or, if you’re looking for something completely different, a joiner will be able to create a totally unique design that nobody else has. Basque in the knowledge that your furniture is 100% unique.

Solid Quality

We all know that shop-bought flat-packed furniture isn’t the sturdiest. But, with bespoke joinery, you can rest assured that your pieces will stand the test of time, and will be 100% fit for purpose.

Adds Value

If your bespoke joinery project is something that will be a permanent feature of your property, such as fitted wardrobes, shelving, cupboards, etc. it will likely add some value to your property.

Creative Features

A joiner will be able to add unique, useful, and bespoke features to your furniture such as storage, doors, and handles that suit your needs, angles that work with the proportions of your home, child-friendly features, and more.

Improved Efficiency

If your joiner is working on more structural jobs, it could make your home warmer, as wood is a natural insulator, or add more light, depending on the job at hand.

What Bespoke Furniture Does a Joiner Make?

Joiners work on a number of different bespoke woodwork projects, from indoor furniture to backyard decking, and even structural components of buildings. 

  • Freestanding furniture
  • Built-in furniture
  • Garden furniture
  • Patios and decking
  • Sheds
  • Doors & door fittings
  • Structural elements of buildings

How Does Joinery Differ From Carpentry?

The key difference between joinery and carpentry is that a joiner creates furniture and other woodwork items, and carpenters fit or install them. Depending on what you’re looking to commission, you might require both a joiner and a carpenter to complete your bespoke joinery project. 

Although, oftentimes, a joiner will also be able to fit their creations. A carpenter may not be able to create bespoke pieces of furniture, however. It’s important to hire the right tradesman for your project; before you commit, make sure to spend some time discussing your requirements with them to ensure that they will be able to complete the job, without having to hire additional workers down the line.
