johnny_automatic_tool_boxAre you feeling like it’s time to buy a new couch or sofa? Typically people look to replace their couch after about five to seven years, often due to general use and wear, or maybe just an overall desire to change the look or feel of their couch and living area. Buying a new couch can cost you thousands of dollars and if you’re replacing it every five years – that is a lot of money spent over a lifetime!

There are many reasons why you might start to get the new furniture itch. Maybe your sofa upholstery is out of style. Or maybe you’re simply sick or bored of the look and are looking to revamp your living area. Redesigning pieces, repairing furniture, painting a room, and adding in new accent pieces are some of the many ways you can freshen up your living space. The living space of your home is such an important part of your life. It’s where you spend your evenings and weekends, where you enjoy time with your family, and where some of life’s most important moments happen. No wonder people are willing to spend their hard earned money on what is often the centerpiece of their living area: their sofa or couch.

What if instead you could save thousands of dollars while still achieving the new look you were wanting? There’s a perfect solution: furniture reupholstery. Furniture restoration in NYC is a burgeoning business (just make sure you choose a reputable company) and there are a lot of options if you want to reupholster a couch.

Consider what it is about your furniture that you’d like to change. More than likely, it’s the sofa upholstery or the springs and foam that need changing, rather than the shape or structure. (But if you are looking to change the shape or structure, there are options for that, too.) Overtime, use begins to show in the sofa’s upholstery – scratches on leather, tears in fabric, discoloration, worn spots, or stubborn stains or spills, to name a few. Instead of getting rid of a structurally sound piece of furniture, take care of your investment through furniture reupholstery instead.

Sectional sofas, loveseats, recliners, ottomans, chairs, chesterfield sofas, chaise lounges, couches, and even sleeper sofas can be reupholstered. There are many options to restore or reupholster a couch, depending on your needs. Not sure what you need? Not a problem. Furniture restoration companies are there to assess your furniture piece on site and give you suggestions and input on how to breathe new life into your sofa or couch, without purchasing a brand new piece.

Furniture restoration in NYC is becoming more popular; it’s an eco-friendly solution to purchasing a new furniture piece and it also saves the pain of figuring out how to fit a new piece altogether into the often tight spaces of homes in NYC.

Furniture is an investment. Why should you have to re-invest in nice pieces every few years when you can simply take great care of the furniture you already own?
