Furniture shouldn’t be treated like fast-food or over-the-counter medicine. It’s a part of your home and a reflection of who you are. As such, it should last a long time.
Too many American homeowners are growing frustrated with furniture that creaks, cracks and breaks when it should be growing hardier with each passing year. Thanks to modern manufacturing we are able to enjoy the benefits of fast production and a wide selection…but at a price. When quantity is prioritized over quality your home can suffer the consequences. When in doubt? Learn from the past. Wooden cupboards and custom dog kennels don’t have to boast a paltry lifespan of just a few years before it’s time to start looking for options again.
Amish creations have captured millions of hearts across the world for their beauty and durability.
From Amish built garages to Amish chicken coops, this old-fashioned method of crafting beautiful furniture has been around for a long time. It started gaining significant traction, however, in the 1920’s. This was thanks to early American folk art being ‘discovered’, so to speak, by many historians and art collectors at the time looking for something to pave the way. Amish furniture stands out from the competition due to being 100% hand-crafted and boasting some of the most brilliant blends of wood you’ll ever find on the market.
When you want a dog house or barn that lasts? Make that an Amish dog house or Amish barn. A survey of over 2,000 consumers saw the vast majority at 95% stating they expect their furniture to last for many years. This means nothing breaking down or needing constant repairs as you go about your life working, playing and following your dreams. Another survey saw nearly 90% of respondents stating they actively plan on keeping their wooden furniture for at least 15 years or more.
It’s not just longevity that matters to the average person. It’s also what their wooden cupboards and garden shed have to say about them on a deeper level. The same survey of over 2,000 consumers was conducted recently, finding over 70% of its respondents enthusiastically agreeing that the design of their furniture says a lot about them. Wood is unique in that it spans multiple art styles and is both flexible and durable in the grand scheme of things, providing you a little bit of everything in one lovely package. If you’re thinking of replacing that desk or upgrading the wooden cupboards in your kitchen, all you have to do is place an order.
Amish furniture puts the delicacy of a hand-crafted touch first and foremost. The majority of Amish barns, sheds, coops, shelves and cupboards are made out of different types of wood. These include oak, cherry, walnut, hickory and maple. Which one suits you best depends on the finish, texture and color you want enhancing your living room or kitchen. Because of the meticulous nature of Amish craftsmanship these creations take a little longer than you would normally see elsewhere. That doesn’t mean the wait isn’t worth it.
Expect to wait anywhere between 12 to 16 weeks when you order your Amish dog houses or Amish built barns online. It takes around eight weeks to build brand new furniture or customize an entirely different model alongside shipping time. In the meantime, planning ahead for your new addition should be done to make the transition as seamless as possible. When purchasing a shed, for example, you should determine your space needs and tack on an extra 25% for future storage needs. How long will your products last? A wooden shed or pair of wooden cupboards can hit 20 years when taken good care of.
Beautiful, long-lasting and wholly unique…that’s the promise Amish furniture offers you.
