Is your furniture starting to show its age after all those years of good old-fashioned family enjoyment? Before you jump online, browsing for the latest furniture deals have you considered all of your options?
If you haven’t explored the idea of reupholstery, you might think that it’s all sounds a little too complicated and time-consuming – but we have some good news!
Although reupholstery may seem like a bit of a ‘faff’ it’s actually wonderfully convenient and straight forward – it can also save you money in the long run!
What are the benefits of Reupholstery?
Of course, buying new furniture has its benefits, but so does reupholstery.
Unlike other household items, certain pieces of furniture like sofas can hold a great deal of sentimental value. Whether it was your first serious investment after you purchased that perfect house or fond memories of grandma falling asleep after a festive feast, let’s face it you have made some pretty good memories over the years!
So before you send years of history and enjoyment to the landfill, let’s take a look at some of the wonderful benefits of reupholstery:
If the deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.
Purchasing cheap furniture may seem like the perfect problem solver at the time, but the likelihood of you needing a replacement in a few years is high. Reupholstering quality furniture means that you get more enjoyment and better quality that is guaranteed to go the distance.
Did you know that approximately only 17% of furniture is recycled in the UK each year?
Instead of recycling our furniture, more than 150,000 tonnes of sofas are sent to the landfill instead. Reupholstery and repurposing old furniture helps to reduce the effects of global warming and helps save trees and forests worldwide.
To the contrary, reupholstery is actually more convenient and straightforward process than you may realise. Typically, when you’re looking to buy new furniture, you can quite easily wait anything from 8-12 weeks for a new suite to be delivered.
However, with reupholstery – that time can be reduced by more than half in most cases. Reupholstery also allows you to have more say, over how the finished product will turn out!
