Considering Furniture Refinishing? Think About Furniture Reupholstery Too

Furniture Refinishing

Most old furniture can look beautiful when restored to pristine condition.Furniture refinishing is one way you can restore an old-looking piece of furniture. However, if you really want to breathe new life into your furniture, you might also want to consider furniture reupholstery. Doing so gives old furniture a new look while retaining the original charm. This can turn a relatively boring piece into something more unique and stylish.

However, before you do any furniture reupholstery, you should make sure that the furniture is not a rare antique. Furniture reupholstering can sometimes decrease the value of some pieces, especially if they are crafted or manufactured by a well-known name and are considered works of art.

    I never thought about accidentally refinishing something that could potentially be an antique. that would be the worst if you tried to make some changes to something that was worth a lot. I guess I should do some research on what I have before making changes. Thanks for the info!

    My grandmother recently passed away and she left me her old dresser. It has gone through a lot of wear and tear, so it will definitely need to be refinished. I was originally going to try to match the current color, but I like your suggestion of refinishing it to match my existing furniture.

    In your article, you stated that furniture reupholstery can be used to add new style to a piece using different fabrics and patterns. My wife called me at work this morning because our dog tore a piece off of her favorite couch. I wonder if there are certain types of couches that are easier to restore or reupholster.

    That’s good to know that bumps and scrapes can be repaired with furniture refinishing. I have kids so minor damage like that is kind of inevitable. Getting refurbished furniture could be a little cheaper than new stuff, too.
