Wooden cutouts for any living situation

The design and manufacture is a dynamic process between manufacturer and customer that allows for a custom-fit end product. What are the advantages of custom furniture and wood cuttings and how to get the most out of awkwardly shaped living spaces, we take a closer look in this article.

Advantages of furniture and wood cut to size

Buying new furniture is not as simple as it sounds. Often people think that buying a bed, a couch or a wardrobe should be as simple as going to a furniture store, choosing the perfect item and bringing it home. Nevertheless, you can walk out empty-handed, because in practice, we often find that it can be very difficult to find the "perfect" furniture. Often it fails even the smallest measurement deviations.

This is where custom furniture and wood cuts come into play. Instead of surfing the web all day or running from store to store, professional 3D configurators allow you to commission your own custom furniture to a cutting service. If you already have matching furniture and just need custom enhancements, then easily create a custom-fit wood cut for your interior. What are the advantages?

Practical and versatile

While it may be quicker to buy furniture off the shelf, it could prove impractical in the long run. Often, customers are looking for specific features, extra storage space, or a particular shape to fit into a gap or difficult section. With custom wood cutting, these specific needs can be easily met. Whether more storage space, specific dimensions or a specific material is desired, at form.bar we get the maximum functionality out of the furniture and the existing environment.

From a custom built-in kitchen to custom cabinets and commodes, remodeled suites and countertops can be designed to perfectly match existing furniture. If you need a hidden drawer under the bed or extra storage on the nightstand, matching add-ons can be easily and versatilely integrated with existing furniture.

Unbeatable price-performance ratio in top quality

Even though custom products have a reputation for being extremely expensive, this is not the case when you consider their value. If you compare mass-produced furniture to custom-made, the quality of materials and overall construction is higher in custom-made products. More care and time is put into the manufacturing process. In addition, this furniture is better against daily wear and tear. This means that in the long run, you get more for your money and get a much more advantageous price-performance ratio.

Working directly with furniture manufacturers gives customers the added assurance that products will stand the test of time. One of the main problems with mass-produced furniture is the tendency to use inferior materials and finishes, which results in the final product having a limited lifespan. Investing money and time in this collaborative approach pays off in high quality and longevity. Even with premium brands, custom furniture is comparatively inexpensive in terms of cost and quality.

Create a unique style

Moving from one furniture store to another, looking for a piece of furniture tailored to individual needs and style, is exhausting. Often, compromises have to be made with standard products. With custom-made furniture and wood cuts, there are no compromises and each creation carries its own personal style and charisma.

The same principle applies when decorating a room, an office or the entire home. It can be a challenge to source different furniture that complements each other. The problem can be circumvented by matching the different elements to each other. Creating your own furniture is therefore the ideal opportunity to create a customized style that matches each other.

Reduce electricity and heating costs and ensure sustainability

Custom furniture and wood cuts help to reduce both electricity and heating costs, because with the right planning you can bring more light into the respective living areas and create additional space for insulation. There are studies that speak to thermal performance when it comes to custom cabinetry, so in addition to the purely aesthetic benefits, there are clear electricity and heating cost savings.

Another benefit of our collaborative cutting service is the sustainability-oriented production chain. With custom cuts, you get an eco-friendly option at a cost-effective price. The transparency of the process ensures you can track the source of materials and monitor any waste.

CNC Mill

What is CNC technology?

Anyone who has worked with thick pieces of wood knows how difficult it can be to make a cut with manual tools. Thanks to computer-controlled equipment, however, time and effort can be saved. A computer numerical control (CNC) router is a computer-controlled cutting machine that typically takes a hand-held router as its spindle, which is used to cut a variety of materials. CNC routers can perform the tasks of many machines in cabinet shops, such as the panel saw, spindle moulder and boring mill. They can also precisely mill carpentry work such as slots and tenons.

What are melamine resin coatings?

A thin melamine resin coating is often pressed onto decorative or veneered chipboard. This process makes it possible to imitate surfaces in numerous materials, such as wood look or concrete look, but also colors look stronger and are more durable on melamine resin. Additionally, melamine resin coatings add robustness to the particular wood finish.

DIY wood cutting for kitchen and dining table tops

Many dream of building their own kitchen furniture or kitchen and dining table tops. With the wealth of information and instructions available online, it's possible to accomplish quite a bit on your own. Depending on the level of a DIY project and individual know-how, we recommend making a thorough plan and choosing an appropriate tutorial.

The trick to assembling a stylish but functional kitchen cabinet lies in the initial design sketch. If you want to build your own kitchen furniture or kitchen and dining table tops, you can save a lot of money. However, for difficult cuts it is advisable to use a professional cutting service to match the overall design precisely.

Correctly implement recesses of sinks or ceramic hobs

When it comes to home decor projects, sinks or ceramic hobs in our homes aren't exactly the first thing we get creative with. But especially when designing kitchen or bathroom furniture, it's important to pay attention to the correct cutouts of sinks or ceramic hobs. This is where your own DIY projects are particularly tricky, so we recommend discussing your own dimensions and sketches with a professional craftsman first.

Wood cutting for office designs

The right furniture is always the hallmark of a good interior. It must provide just the right amount of comfort and functionality to guarantee full efficiency. An adjustable chair and a flexible desk with a minimum size to work well will improve the work environment, thereby increasing work productivity. This also reduces the risk of incorrect back and body strain.

With the right wood cuts for your office furniture, you ensure ergonomically correct shapes. For example, indentations in the seating area can create a necessary dynamic. In places where electronics should be located, strategic recesses can be used to bypass holes for cables. First sketch out what you need and we'll be happy to help you implement it!

Create custom hanging shelves

Tired of shelves that take up too much room space? Then hanging shelves or wall shelves are an optimal way to use the unused wall space as new storage space. The best thing about suspended shelves is that you can easily and inexpensively build them yourself and integrate them on any wall side.

Build hanging shelves yourself

Floating shelves can be placed almost anywhere. Create a clean look whether in the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or living room. The trick is to drill holes in the wall to invisibly mount the steel rods that hold these floating shelves. To do this, grab the lumber or wooden slats to create both the shelf frame and the shelves. Sand the material and give it a custom finish with water-based polyurethane. You'll find countless DIY tutorials online.

Many online stores on the market offer models that a beginner can easily build and install yourself. The invisible mounting hardware is the best option when building a floating shelf. Alternatively, you can opt for a swing-style floating shelf that can hang in loop brackets, which adds an extra dose of rusticity and complements certain interiors in particular. Many DIY variations work particularly well for smaller constructions. For larger assemblies or when you want to create specific designs, wood cutouts for wall shelves are recommended to make all units fit together perfectly.

What to do with irregularly shaped rooms?

Irregularly shaped rooms come in all shapes and sizes - from sloping walls to tiny rooms, all of these can pose a challenge when designing the existing environment. The living room, for example, is the focal point of the home, but if it's oddly shaped or has whimsical features, it can feel impossible to match it with the living room furniture and styles you want. For this reason, let's take a look at some of the most common environment challenges and how to transform them with simple solutions or matching wood cuts.

Segment the room

The most important thing to do with irregularly shaped rooms is to create segments and then rearrange the furniture in each area accordingly. For example, you can put a reading chair and bookshelves in one area, while a sideboard with the hi-fi system is in another. If the room is suitable for different functions, you should definitely take advantage of this. Therefore, segment the room by rearranging the furniture to delineate different areas with different functions. Custom wood cuts can be ideal helpers in segmenting rooms or supporting the multifunctionality of furniture.

Scale the furniture and remove it from the wall

Using furniture that is too large or too small in an irregularly shaped room, can make the arrangement look disjointed. Therefore, scale your furniture to the size of the room so that it flows better and distracts the eye from the difficult shape. For example, a coffee table that is too large can dominate a small living room and consume walking space. If you want to make a room appear smaller, it is enough to move the furniture away from the wall and closer to the interior of the room. For example, you can place a sofa table or a floor lamp behind the seating area to fill the space and create more light. Coordinated side tables can be used to anchor the room and create a cozy area.

Equalize large elements and open passages

Placing a bookshelf or TV cabinet on the same wall can make the room look small and cramped. Instead, spread out the larger elements of the room to create balance. Place large pieces of furniture or large decorative items on opposite walls or in different areas of the room to make the space feel more open and harmonious. A small room with more than one entrance may contain a narrow passageway, making the space feel even more cramped. Instead, separate the room into two small spaces, such as a reading nook and a conversation area. It's a good idea to open up the passageway through the room with a rug, bridging the two areas. This will create the illusion of more living space.

Rooms with sloping walls

Sloping walls present a challenge when designing a room. The awkward shape of the room creates a lot of hard-to-handle nooks and crannies that are not easy to fill without making the room look unruly. A simple and popular solution is to create centered conversation layouts with a sofa and an armchair. This provides a comfortable space for various leisure activities. For rooms with sloping walls, the awkwardly cut angles can be used as a sunny home for plants, helping to brighten up the space and distract from the shape. Rooms with sloping walls can be transformed into an ideal multifunctional space with custom wood cutouts.

Shelf for sloping walls

Rooms with high ceilings

High ceilings can be uncomfortable because we tend to decorate at eye level and below. Often this creates a lot of unused wall and ceiling space if your ceilings are 3 meters or higher. In such cases, it is recommended to match the layout of the room with the height of the ceiling so that the room is not unbalanced. High ceilings can be ideally balanced with a set of tall bookshelves that fill the empty wall space. Custom cabinets act as convenient storage and minimize the cavernous look of high walls. It's a great use of vertical and horizontal space, providing both storage and a tie of structure that unifies the lower half of the room with the upper ceiling.

Optimize the lighting

Provide good lighting in all areas of the room to make it feel more open and unified. Using different lamps can additionally help distract from an irregularly shaped room. For example, place a floor lamp at one end of the sofa and a table lamp on a side table at the other end. Wall sconces above a fireplace or wall shelf create a cozy nook, while overhead lighting in a dark corner makes the room seem more open. Avoid blocking the natural flow of light by always keeping the window region clear.
