Furniture upholstery is not just appropriate when you are moving to a new house and you want a new style or when your couch is already worn out. Just as your food and makeup have their own expiration dates, so does home furniture.

We’ve listed some of the reasons why you need furniture upholstery:

1. Style change

This usually happens when you are remodelling the interior of your house and you would like to have a new look or new design. Perhaps you are already bored with the brown colour of your sofa and you might want to give a new feel to your living room. You don’t need to buy a new set of furniture just because your style changed. South West Upholstery can help you choose the right fabric for you according to your style and colour preferences.

2. Restoring or Redesigning Quality Pieces

One of the most common furniture pieces in need of reupholstery is the sofa. There are determiners if you want to know if your sofa is a candidate for reupholstering. If your sofa is heavy, it’s surely well-constructed. Another sign is the bottom. If it’s a solid webbed bottom and not a hollowed bottom covered by a piece of fabric screening, then the piece probably has coil springs. As long as your furniture is structurally sound, and the fabric is the only part that is really worn, reupholstering might be a good option for you and end up saving you money in the long run. An old sofa that has retained its structure for at least ten years likely has a sound frame. If your sofa is antique, South West Upholstery will provide you the best service for you to prevent harming the piece of furniture through the reupholstering process.

3. Sentimental reasons

There are pieces of furniture that you’ve inherited from your great grandmother that you just can’t let go. Everyone in the family must’ve loved that sofa. Thus, reupholstering it is just the best solution to keep it from being thrown away. Through this process, you can still keep the memories of that piece of furniture and be able to give it a fresh look to preserve it. Reupholstering that original can be your investment in sustaining a family history you cannot live without!

Updating an old collectable for your home or business for sentimental reasons can be a challenge and a reward, as well as a wonderful conversation piece for years to come. We can help you maintain the unique individuality of a piece, or turn an old look into a new exciting fashion statement. These days, anything old is in. Some coffee shops even feature old furnishings to add beauty and different kind of vibe to their place.

4. Environment-friendly

When you reupholster your old furniture, you are doing the environment a favour. You don’t need to use new frames and springs so it means less waste to be put into landfills. Furthermore, you don’t need to use wood and you will be using less new steel. Fewer natural resources are being consumed. Reupholstery is a way of recycling furniture into a new piece.

5. Value for money

Reupholstering can be a lot cheaper than buying a new piece of furniture. Furthermore, you already know the durability of your old furniture so you don’t have to guess how long it will last.
