Tip of the Day

Before making any purchase, it’s a good idea to consider whether or not the purchase is really necessary.

New Life with New Cushions

14th September 2013

Sometimes it doesn’t make sense to just throw out old furniture. Whether it be a prized family heirloom, or a lucky sofa that you just can’t let go of, there are times when throwing it out gets thrown completely out the window. When that time comes, you need to be prepared to overhaul your furniture instead of replacing them outright and making a plan of action is a great idea to help reduce wasted time, and more importantly, wasted money.

First, you must decide if you will keep the exterior of your old furniture, evaluate the fabric of the piece and assess whether or not it needs a trip to the upholstery shop. Second, you must replace the sofa seat cushions with new ones or, in the event you will be keeping your old upholstery, having a set of replacement cushions made and inserting them into the old covers. Lastly, you must give the entire piece a good and thorough clean-up to make the piece looking, and smelling like new. Not only will this last step be beneficial to the looks and smell of the piece, but it will also help safeguard the health and well-being of you and your family by getting rid of dirt and allergens that may be hiding in the piece.

Next time you’re faced with a furniture dilemma, remember that sometimes, overhauling can help you save a lot of time and money, as well as saving a prized possession from finding its way into the garbage.
