3 Compelling Reasons to Invest in Furniture Reupholstering, Milford, Connecticut

After years of use, the upholstery pieces in your home get discolored and develop signs of wear, including tears, holes, scuff marks, and stains. Rather than throwing these items away, you can reupholster them to make them look like new. Not only will this reduce your impact on the environment, but it will also transform your interior decor. To help you create furniture you’ll love, here are a few reasons to try this service. 

Why You Should Reupholster Your Furniture 

1. Add Value to Vintage & Antique Finds 

When you find a piece of furniture at an antique shop or thrift store, you may love its bones but find tattered, stained, or dull sections of upholstery. This takes away from the beauty and elegance of the item and diminishes its value. By reupholstering it, you can breathe life back into it and restore its original appeal.

2. Give Furniture a Makeover

upholsteryWith a wide range of fabrics, colors, patterns, and textures available, you can completely transform the look of a piece by changing its upholstery. You can pick a print that makes it stand out or a neutral color like gray or beige to help it blend in with the rest of your decor. If you are planning a remodel or interior design revamp, you won’t have to buy new pieces, which can help reduce project costs. 

3. Improve Household Comfort 

Dust mites, mold spores, and other allergens can become embedded in the fibers and seams of upholstered furniture. Sitting on these surfaces could send the irritants into the air, causing sneezing fits, wheezing, and other allergy symptoms. Pet odors and sweat can also linger in the fabric, filling interiors with musty smells. Reupholstering your belongings will eliminate these issues to improve your indoor air quality.
