Everything You Need to Know About Furniture Upholstery Renewal
From sofas to dining chairs, foot stools to ottomans, there are all kinds of upholstered items in your home.
Adding padding and fabric to an item turns it from ordinary into extraordinary. But the problem is that over time, with constant use, the fabric can begin to look jaded and old, and the padding can become less sumptuous. It is also entirely possible that there may be parts of the item broken too, or close to breaking.
The answer isnotto send it to landfill and buy new. The answer is to look at furniture upholstery renewal options with Upholstery Scotland. And here is what you need to know.
It is not a long drawn out process
Many people when they contact us about furniture upholstery renewal will ask how long it takes for the sofa to be re-upholstered or their favourite comfy chair to be back home with them, as good as new.
The answer is this: not long at all! A straightforward renewal of the top layer of fabric can take a matter of days. For items that need stripping back completely, repairs made, wadding replaced and then a top layer of fabric more time will be needed but this weeks, rather than months.
We take care to book in all assignments in an orderly way and so we never take on too many projects all at once. We find this allows our expert team to concentrate on the project in hand, which improves both quality and turnaround time.
There are literally thousands of fabric choices
In fact, sometimes customers are overwhelmed by the options when it comes to fabric type, as well as colour and pattern. However, exponents of having items re-upholstered will tell you that the main reason why they do this is so that they create an entirely unique finish to their item of furniture.
This means that with your chosen sofa fabric and fabric for scatter cushion, no one else will have that particular design or look for their sofa.
It is an art and skill that you will be supporting
We are becoming more aware of our impact on the environment, as well as wanting to preserve skills and artistry that up until recently, were considered old-fashioned and a skill that was dying out.
