One of the best signs of good quality furniture is the ability to withstand simple bumps. But sometimes, even the best quality furniture gets dented and scratched. Mostly by accident during a move, cleaning or even a space rearrangement! What may start as an unfortunate event, can blossom into an opportunity to give new life to your antique and/or wooden furniture. So before taking that piece of furniture to the curb on garbage day or taking it to your local donation centre, consider these 6 reasons to refinish your furniture.
1. Brings new life to your furniture
Solid wood furniture have this great ability to go through several life cycles and looks. Refinishing wood furniture give you the opportunity to basically recreate that piece of furniture to fit the rest of your home and make it a centrepiece of any room.
2. Increases Value
Refinishing furniture not only gives your furniture new life, it also increases it value! Refinishing furniture give you the opportunity to hide and fix imperfections so when you go to sell your furniture or even your home, you have furniture that refinished specifically to your home’s style
3. Lasts Longer
Now when we say injecting new life into your furniture, we dont just mean how the furniture looks. Refinishing furniture also re-seals the material the furniture is made out of, making it last longer in your home and avoiding the wood catching some type of moisture.
4. Saves Time and Money
When trying to pick out new furniture, you need to go to the store (or online), pick out what you think will look goof in your home, pick it up (or get it delivered), spend hours putting it together (making sure you don’t loose any screws) and finally get to enjoy it, as long as you dont need to return it. When you refinish your furniture, you already know how that piece looks in your home and most likely, you have an idea in mind of how to make it better. Having a professional refinish already made goo quality furniture both saves you time, money and your back!
5. Environmentally Friendly
Reduce, Reuse and Recycle! These three crucial steps are all considered when refinishing your furniture. We recycle the material, reduce our impact on the environment by reusing an older piece of furniture, keeping it out of the landfill and keeping dangerous carbon out of our environment by avoiding producing a brand new piece of furniture.
6. Older Is Better!
Most of todays furniture is made from particle board and cheap materials. Older and antique furniture pieces are often made from high quality materials and are known for their expert craftsmanship. Where you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, you can give old furniture new life easily.
