When deciding to buy new furniture or refurbish what you currently have, there are several factors to consider.
If you want to keep up with current design trends, reupholstering your furniture makes the most sense. Often it can be difficult to find the styles, colors and patterns without spending a small fortune. The fabrics and colors that are available in the designer fabric market, from upholstery shops like CushionWorld, far exceed the options available on most retailers showroom floors. You will find a much larger selection of high-quality fabrics from a multitude of brand name fabric companies.
Customize your furniture! It's fun to decorate and add design to your home, and there is no better way than upholstering your furniture. Add a personal touch by selecting your favorite fabric color and pattern, choose the perfect foam combination for your comfort level, and choose your style for that custom look.
These days a new piece of furniture can cost less than reupholstering. This is because the mass merchant discount retailers are buying imported furniture that is designed to be cheap. Cheap labor, cheap framing materials, cheap fabric and cheap foam, all this means is cheap, low quality, that is sure not to last. You might as well take your money and throw it in the trash because that is where that piece of furniture is going very shortly. At CushionWorld, we believe that the cheapest piece of furniture you can buy is the one that lasts the longest. When you have an older frame upholstered you are usually getting much higher quality materials than what is offered by large furniture showrooms.
Heirloom and Sentimental
Well built furniture will last many lifetimes. Some of the best heirlooms are furniture pieces. A great way to remember or be remembered is through a piece of furniture that you can sit in and be comforted.
The history of the chair is fascinating. Almost every ancient culture has enjoyed the creation of the chair. Some are still around today. The chair is a work of art, and some are prized possessions. If properly restored, an antique piece of furniture can endure for generations. Today's older pieces are tomorrow's antiques, so don't give away or throw away furniture, reupholster!
It is environmentally friendly to keep your old furniture. If you have decent quality furniture that works well with your room, keep it that way. By updating the fabric color, pattern and style you can upgrade your furniture and make it even better quality than it originally was. The fabric industry, like any other industry, is constantly improving through technology and advancement. Today's fabrics are luxurious, beautiful, innovative, and durable. Some are so durable they can be sat on one million times before they show any wear! Many manufacturers are including lifetime warranties on fabrics. The same is true for foam products. The technology going into foam products today such as memory foam and gel-infused foam create a whole new level of comfort. If you were to buy brand new furniture with these types of amenities, you would pay a fortune. When you reupholster your furniture, you can add these upgrades for less than half the cost of buying new.
