Why undertake an upholstery project?
Furniture should last a long, long time. Sofas, chairs, upholstered dining chairs and other upholstered items within your Glenrothes can begin to look worn and not the shabby chic you want and let's be honest, with children, pets and modern living, it is no wonder!
What are the options?
Thinking about some of your furniture, which upholstery is beginning to look past its best, which option would you choose from the following three…
- Throw out and buy new?
- Give it to charity?
- Look at an affordable upholstery project, with local to Glenrothes business Upholstery Scotland?
Hopefully, by the end of the article, we will have convinced you to look at option C.
How do I know the item is right for new upholstery?
It's all in the inner workings! If the chairs, sofa, stool etc. is still able to be used with comfort, without it rocking too much or with obvious signs of insect infestation like woodworm, then it could be the perfect specimen.
The easiest option is to bring it in to us and we can take a look at the structure of the item in question. Basically, providing the structure is in good shape, the rest in elementary in this kind of project; springs can easily be replaced and old-fashioned wadding, devoid of its bounciness over years of use can also be replaces with a modern-day equivalent. All that remains for you to do is choose from the wide range of upholstery material, patterns and colours for your project.
But why upholstery things again? Isn't it all a bit of fiddly?
No not really, and neither will it take that long either. Getting an item's upholstery refreshed can bring so many benefits to the interior décor of your Glenrothes home.
For a start, items will be completely unique to you - your choice of material, colours etc. that match your home. You can be far more creative with upholstery projects within your Glenrothes pad, than if hop down to the local 'mega store' for the same sofa bought by several people before you.
By taking time to choose material and upholster pieces of furniture you are preserving a piece of history, maybe a family heirloom meaning it can be passed on again, to the next generation.
You might also be surprised to learn that getting an item of furniture repaired, re-padded and new upholstery added is far more cost -effective than you think. On a par with spending money on a new, run-of-the-mill sofa, why not take another look at how these upholstery projects can transform your Glenrothes home.
