If you are planning to move or do a major decorating home project, you may be tempted to replace your old furniture. After all, you have had those chairs for a long time and that sofa in the living room is starting to show some serious signs of wear and tear. While there is little doubt that it would be great to toss everything out and start from scratch, filling up the landfill with all your old furniture is a costly solution to both you and the environment.
Think twice before you toss out your furniture
Instead of throwing out your old furniture and replacing them altogether, you may what to consider reupholstering your furniture. It will breathe some new life into your old favorites. Who knows? You might be able to turn that old rocking chair you found in the attic into to a trendy conversation piece. Here are some great benefits to reupholstering your old furniture.
Let’s face it—buying new furniture can be extremely expensive. Reupholstering a sofa, for example, is an extremely cost effective option to purchasing a new one that will not cost you and arm and a leg. For the price of some funky new fabric and a few other things like stain or sandpaper, you can beautifully preserve your old furniture at a fraction of what it would cost to replace them.
Recycling is a responsible way to help preserve the environment, preventing your old furniture from winding up in the landfill. When you decide to reupholster, you are making an important decision to reduce waste, and the energy and resources that goes into building a new piece of furniture. If you want to reduce your carbon footprint, recycling is undoubtedly the way to go.
Many times, furniture stores have a limited selection of colours, styles, and patterns to choose from. If you make the decision to reupholster your furniture, you get to be creative and customize your furniture any way you want, making it a one of a kind, conversation piece that will have your guests begging to know where you got it.
For all these reasons and more, choosing to reupholster your old furniture is a really great option that will refresh your home without having to rack up your credit card bills.
