Commercial Upholstery Ayr
Many years ago, people often used the saying 'make and mend do', meaning that items were repaired and only replaced when they were beyond economic repair. With the advent of credit cards and higher purchase agreements, customers no longer had to 'make do'; they simply replaced things with more modern items.
But we have turned full circle. In terms of both trends and economics, people are now realising that giving older items of furniture, for example, a new lease of life gives them not only the results they wants but is more cost-effective too.
Re-upholstery has increased over recent years, especially as more and more commercial settings are realising the benefits of choosing new fabrics for the current furniture. ALL businesses in Ayr can benefit from the talent and skills of Upholstery Scotland; you will be amazed at the results but how does re-upholstery work?
The structure or skeleton of the item needs to be in a good state of repair. We assess this by stripping down the item of furniture to its bare bones - in most cases, the wood and its springs. This is the blank canvas from which we start to re-build your item of furniture, replacing the foam with newer materials that meet fire safety regulations. It will look similar to the original, but with new fabric, trims, buttons, edging etc.
Many Ayr businesses think this a far-too time consuming process and that this will make it too expensive. There are options to gaining a new look to your premises. For example, have you considered retaining key pieces of furniture and having them upholstered, replacing only a few other items?
But why re-upholster? Are there other advantages?
There are several advantages to re-upholstery your furniture:
Many older or antique pieces of furniture are made from high quality wood that will have come from slow growing forests. Some wood may also be from the rainforest. In this day and age where we constantly need to assess our impact on the earth's resources, could you really throw an item on the skip, knowing the wood was from a rainforest?
Many of these items are also of high quality and, in our opinion you will be hard pushed to find similar quality pieces without paying top price. Re-upholstering these items for your Ayr business could be more cost-effective in the long run.
Another distinct advantage to re-upholstering furniture, especially in a commercial setting, is that you have far greater choice when it comes to the choice of fabrics including colour, patterns and style. You can also add other details, such as buttons or trims, to make your furniture unique to your business.
