When is Re-upholstery a Good Option?
Many people are now seeing the advantages on re-upholstering furniture rather than buying new, reaping financial benefits. There are many reasons why re-upholstering is a good option; here is Upholstery Scotland's guide to reaping the benefits of re-upholstering:
Don't just buy new!
Many of us will look fondly at the battered-looking, dishevelled sofa in the corner, smile wryly as we remember the day we bought it, with our hard earned wage packet or at the start of a relationship etc. Our furniture tell stories and hold memories - trying the get the sofa to fit through the front door of a new house or flat, children lying on it watching TV as well as the ongoing drama of not letting the dog on the furniture. It might not be the most expensive or antique of heirlooms but don't assume that buying new is the way forward.
f the structure of the sofa, chair or stool etc. is in a good state of repair, then re-upholster!
Providing the structure of the sofa or chair etc. is robust and in good repair, re-upholstering the piece of furniture is more affordable that you think; certainly cheaper than buying new! Re-upholstering can breathe new life in to tire furniture.
Upholstery Scotland can show you the proof of the amazing affect re-upholstery
of furniture with their extensive gallery.
Affordable new look
From time to time, we all invest in changing the look or theme of our interior design. Frequently, when we do this, we base the decor around the 'look' of our furniture. When next looking to re-design and upgrade your home's interior, why not plan your theme and then re-upholster your sofa and chairs to contrast or match your theme?
Re-upholstery is a great way of adding colour, pattern and texture in to a room. Again, this is far more affordable and simpler than selling your no-longer wanted suite, choosing new, waiting for delivery etc.
Accidents happen, whether it's food or drink being spilt, staining the fabric or an over-zealous pet scratching or ripping the leather. Rather than 'throwing away', the 'make do and mend' culture is making a return.
Repairing leather and fabric is easier and more affordable that you think. Upholstery Scotland have hundreds of fabric samples - plain or patterned fabric, leather and others - that can repair, patch or use to re-upholster the whole piece.
