A Decor Diamond In the Rough

What if I were to tell you that your new dining room chairs could be lying within that pile of junk you have stored away in the attic?

Whether you want to save old furniture for sentimental purposes, or simply save some money on a new look, reupholstering furniture can turn drab to fab.

Let’s look into the three main benefits of reupholstering.

Preserve
Whether it is an antique or a family heirloom, some furniture is meant to be preserved. Much of the furniture sold in modern retail stores tends to wear out much faster than old furniture. As the old saying goes, “They don’t make them like they used to!” Unlike the sturdy build of grandma’s solid oak framed sofa, today’s furniture is poorly constructed with cheaper materials. Reupholstery allows you to keep that quality piece of furniture, with a completely transformed look. When you reupholster, you are able to choose durable fabrics that are not only trendy, but that are made to last.
