Many people in Canada have certain furniture pieces that are particularly fond of.
However, once they start to look old and worn, most homeowners are confronted with a difficult decision: is investing in repairs and restorations worth the money?
Our experts in Danish and mid-century modern furniture are here to explain the many benefits to having your antique furniture restored.
Antique Furniture: An Overview
Everything in your home, from rugs to lightning, can be plotted on a timeline based on the date when it was manufactured, and labelled with a generational tag such as contemporary, mid-century modern, or retro.
And yet, according to Merriam Webster, only pieces of furniture that are at least 100 years old are classified as antique.
If an item cannot clearly be dated to 100 or more years in age, it should technically be referred to as an antique.
Like great art, these pieces are an investment, so keeping them in good condition is key to preserve their monetary value.
About Furniture Restoration and Repairs
Every piece of furniture has its own story, and therefore, its own furniture restoration strategy.
The professional you hire to bring your pieces of furniture to its optimal incarnation should not only be passionate about the preservation and appreciation of antique furniture, but also experienced and knowledgeable on repairs and restoration.
As furniture builders, we have the necessary skills and tools for repairs and restorations.
We have restored thousands of valuable pieces to life in the past, and will continue to do so in the future. After all, furniture deserves to be as perfect as one can make it.
Benefits of Restoring and Repairing your Antique Furniture
Watching a valuable, beloved piece deteriorate over time is definitely hard to witness, but restoring and repairing sentimental furniture will help you preserve those items for continued use and enjoyment.
Additionally, the process of restoration can be used to match other pieces in your home.
Furniture restoration is more affordable than buying new furniture, which often lacks the charm of antique items. In addition, antique pieces were carefully hand-crafted, while today's furniture is mass-produced in factories and shipped all over the world.
Antique furniture pieces are one-of-a-kind, so restoring and repairing them is almost always worth the money.
Also, repairing antique furniture is environmentally friendly. Many types of furniture can be restored, from tables to chairs, bed frames, dressers and more. By choosing rehabilitation over buying, you are doing your part to preserve the planet.
