To reupholster, or not to reupholster?
That is a question we’re asked a lot as industry experts with over 160 years combined experience. If you’ve been toying with the idea, we’ve put together 3 reasons why it’s best to consider reupholstery for your furniture.
Before we jump in though, let’s start with the basics; What is reupholstery?
Reupholstering is an excellent method to bring new life to old furniture. At Nu-Rest Upholstery, our expert upholsterers meticulously take your furniture down to its original structure and change it. This may include a total tear-down and rebuild if required, utilizing both traditional and contemporary materials, or a makeover that replaces the old fabric with new fabric.
Benefits of Reupholstery
Cost of buying new
What do you do when you rip your favourite pair of jeans? You try and stich them up before buying a new pair.
What do you do when your favourite armchair has a tear? You’d just consider buying a brand new one whereas you should consider seeing an upholster.
Reupholstery can be substantially less expensive than buying new so it would make no sense to waste perfectly nice furniture.
Keeping it in the family
Do you have a piece of furniture that was gifted to you by a family member? Maybe it’s been passed down from generation to generation but has deteriorated over the years. Don’t chuck those memories away. By reupholstering this sentimental piece, you’re able to preserve those precious memories. As a family of upholsterers, we know what it means to keep it in the family.
When disposing of your furniture, it will either end up in landfill or be incinerated. Both methods have been linked to the acceleration of global warming. Landfills produce methane and studies show this can be more potent than Carbon Dioxide. The process of incarceration releases toxic chemicals such as lead and mercury into the air. It’s not just the environment that’s impacted, it’s also our health.
