    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.

    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.

    I like how you pointed out that furniture reupholstery can help bring a new sense of style to your furniture or living space. I’d like to change the overall look of my living room, but I don’t quite have the money to buy all new furniture. I’ve heard that having my furniture reupholstered can actually save me some money, and I’d be willing to consider it if it can really help the overall look of my living room.

  • Callum Palmer says:

    Considering that most people buy antique furniture in order to sell it later, restoration really can be a worthwhile option. As the article points out, a good restoration service can make sure a piece of antique furniture remains its value. This is important because, as time passes, the more and more risk there is of the furniture being heavily damaged and losing all of its value.

    It can really surprise homeowners to realize how beneficial furniture renovation can be. After all, most people would never thing about using reupholstery to change the look of their furniture. That way it can better match the new style of your home that you might be going for.

  • Sherry Gajos says:

    Wow, I had no idea that you could reupholster furniture to not only add a new style to the piece but add functionality to it. I found a cool indoor bench for my bedroom but the upholstery on it does not quite fit with my home decor and is already pretty worn out. Thank you for the information about how getting it reupholstered to help me modernize the piece.
