Do people rarely think about the fact that furniture has its own life span? Whether we have just decorated our new home or it's been ten years since we last purchased new furniture, we rarely think about the expiration date of our furniture or household items. While we are all used to replacing our daily essentials, such as toothpaste, or expired cosmetics, on a regular basis.
However, furniture, especially custom-made furniture, also has its own use-by date and is not easy to classify. The durability of furniture depends on a number of factors, including the primary materials used, the location of the furniture, and the purpose of the furniture. Some furniture will have a shorter lifespan than furniture that is rarely used if it is placed in a place where daylight can reach it regularly and it will be used a lot.
