Instead of tossing out old and worn furniture, restore it to bring new life, and cut down on waste and further resource use. In this time of budget-conscious and green living, people are curious about having their existing furniture restored, instead of replaced. But, does restoring always make sense?
If your furniture piece is of high quality, it is almost always worth restoring. The quality of a piece is only as good as the foundation it rests on. Quality frames are constructed of solid hardwood which are assembled with corner blocks, dowels, glue and screws and have heavy gauge coil or zigzag springs. If your furniture piece has sentimental value, or is a precious antique, it is always worth restoring the piece. These types of pieces cannot be replaced, so the costs are easily outweighed by the sentiment and memories attached to the piece.
If your existing furniture fits just perfectly in your space, it makes sense to simply restore the piece, rather than try to find something new. If you have been furniture shopping recently, you have noticed that furniture has gotten really large overall. Overstuffed sofas, chairs-and-a-half and ottomans are all huge, and often not scaled to most family homes. If you have a small-scale sofa that fits perfectly under your living room window, you may not be able to replace it easily with a new sofa that fits as well. So, even pieces of less quality may be worth restoring, rather than going crazy trying to find an equally perfect piece for your room!
