Celebrate this year with custom furniture.

Happy Fourth of July! You’re probably celebrating the U.S.’s independence with a great cookout, a breathtaking fireworks display, and maybe a trip to the beach or a water park. Why not also use the long weekend to give your beautiful home the TLC it’s been needing? We have some amazing ideas that will make your living space feel even more like yours.

What can you do to make every day in your home an Independence Day? How about making some gorgeous customized furniture part of the environment? These pieces will be one-of-a-kind, made especially for you and your family. These personal touches will make your home feel special and leave a lasting impression on your guests. You’ll be fielding lots of eager questions about where you found your beautiful sofa or unusual headboard.

Do you wish you were setting your awesome barbecue spread out on a better dining room or patio table? Have you looked for the perfect piece in stores for years with no luck? In that case, you should consider custom-made tables and chairs. You’ll finally have a piece that coordinates brilliantly with the rest of the room.

This is an especially great option for homeowners or renters who have a kitchen or dining area with an unusual layout. Why experience the frustration of trying to fit a ready-made table into an oddly-shaped room? (You’ll find that custom-made furniture is a hit in NYC and other big cities, where apartments are small, doorways are narrow, and layouts are anyone’s guess.) Work with what you have—and make it special!

We’re all hoping for a gorgeous, sunny July 4 this year, of course, but summer weather is unpredictable at best. What’s your backup plan in case of rain, thunder and lightening—or oppressive heat? If you’re going to move the party indoors and enjoy some movies or TV with your guests, you might find yourself wishing you had an attractive entertainment unit that made everyone’s viewing experience more enjoyable. Why not have a custom wall unit made especially for your living room? You’ll be able to house your flatscreen, speakers, DVD or Blu-ray player, gaming consoles and related items in a style that’s completely your own.

Having some visitors staying with you over the holiday weekend? Even the politest house guests occasionally spill a plate of food or a beverage. To keep your custom-made pieces looking pristine, fabric protection for furniture is always a great idea. Your sofa, chairs and ottoman are investments, and you want them to look flawless for years to come.

Enjoy the long weekend! It’s a great time to relax, enjoy some mouthwatering barbecue with family and friends, and maybe make a few improvements to your home sweet home. Beautiful custom-made furniture allows you to put your signature on every room of your house. When you’re ready to get started, the expert professionals at Dr. Sofa® can help you to take your living room, kitchen or bedroom look just the way you’ve always wanted it to.
