Spring Cleaning Tips: Restoring Old Furniture & Window Treatments

Spring is Just the Right Time to Restore Old Furniture

Shopping for new furniture can leave you uninspired or settling for a design that’s not exactly what you envisioned. Spring is the perfect time to take on a new project in restoring old furniture and window treatments. Find out why and how you can do so.

Worn Furniture and Decorative Pieces Can Be an Eyesore

If you find that there are stained, worn, or damaged pieces of furniture in your home, you must be aware of how much of an eyesore they can be for visitors. If you love the silhouette, shape or design of your piece, replacing the fabric upholstery could be the solution that brings you the most happiness.

Tips to Restoring Old Furniture

1.) Do Some Research

Does that old piece of furniture need some attention? Did you find a piece with good bones at the thrift shop? Can you salvage that aging piece of furniture? How would you do so and who is able to help you? Find a trustworthy full service upholstery & furniture restoration company, like Fabrics That Go, that has experience in bringing old furniture back to life. 

 

2.) Pick a Fabric Design

Think about the kind of fabric that would be the best fit for your project. What is your personal style that you’d like to showcase? Are you thinking modern, traditional, Southwestern, etc? Consider the functionality of the fabric you’d like. For example, if it is a chair that is in a high traffic area or outdoors, you’d want to consider Sunbrella fabrics that are easy to clean and stain/wear resistant. 

 

3.) Get a Quote

Figure out: 

  • How much fabric you’ll need for the job
  • Do you need additional materials like batting, foam, piping, etc?
  • Do the legs or other parts need repair?
  • How much for a professional to complete the project.
