When do you Reupholster your Furniture Rather than Buying New

One thing that people are starting to find out these days is that companies are exporting their manufacturing in order to pay less money and retain higher profits. This is true in every aspect of the products you purchase, including furniture. Some companies are finding it much less expensive on their side to export their furniture manufacturing in order to save money and that means you are going to be getting a lower quality product while the company still makes a high profit.

Fortunately, there are still some companies out there that are doing things the old fashioned way and building furniture with high quality materials that last for decades. So the question you need to ask yourself is if the furniture piece you have is worth reupholstering or if you should buy a new piece?

Reupholstering your furniture can save you a lot of money in the long run versus buying a completely new piece. Keep in mind that with the amount of low quality furniture that is available these days that new piece may not last very long, either.

Most people will want to go with reupholstering their furniture when it is a piece that has been passed down through the family or an antique that they have picked up for a very reasonable price and they want it to be useable again. This way you get the old world craftsmanship and quality without having to pay the price of trying to find new furniture built the same way.

You can also pick out the upholstery that matches your décor rather than spend time looking for the closest match or changing your décor to fit the furniture’s style.
