Older furniture tends to be made of higher quality product than today’s low or mid priced furniture pieces which are often made of soft woods, plastic, or low quality plywood. These pieces are also more solidly built a solid framework means the chair or sofa will last for many years. Not to mention, buying new furniture of the same quality as your older pieces will most likely cost you several times as much as your furniture’s original price.
Selecting a custom upholstery fabric and trim is a great advantage of reupholstering old furniture. Reupholstering allows you to have a piece that starts will a clean slate and to select the fabrics, trims, and style that will match your room and other furniture pieces. You will also have the opportunity to make slight adjustments to the furniture’s construction and to create a new look that can last for many years.
For many, the value of home furniture and accessories is much more than monetary value. Reupholstering furniture is often popular because the pieces are important to them. Reupholstering a family heirloom allows the piece to remain a usable piece of furniture that family members will cherish. Continuing to use pieces that have belonged to the family for generations can strengthen the memories shared with family and friends
As mentioned earlier, quality furniture construction that uses solid wood is not as common today as it used to be. While reupholstering furniture is not as inexpensive as buying a new piece of a lower quality, it will cost you much less than buying new furniture of the same quality. Although it isn’t worth the cost to replace a cheap sofa, for a solid wood piece of furniture, reupholstering will allow you to save money in the long run.
