The Benefits of Furniture Refinishing

  • Avoid Extra Investments & Costs: As we all know, buying new furniture can be expensive. If your furniture is in good condition and just needs a facelift, furniture refinishing is the more financially feasible solution.
  • Protect Sentimental Value: There are some furniture pieces that you just can’t let go of – and that’s what furniture refinishing is for. You don’t have to get rid of furniture that has significant value to you and your family. By refinishing these sentimental furniture pieces, you can continue to use them for years to come.
  • Preserve Timeless Furniture Pieces: They just don’t make furniture like they used to. Older furniture just seems to have more quality materials and attention to detail. To avoid buying cheaper and mass-produced furniture, refinishing your existing furniture is the solution you’re looking for.
  • Maintain the Condition of Your Furniture: Just because your furniture has scratches, stains, and bumps doesn’t mean that it’s time to let it go. Refinishing furniture can restore your pieces to its original condition – or into even better shape.
  • Create a New Style: If the foundation of your furniture piece is solid and you just want to give it a new style, that’s also an option! Take your older furniture and design it to suit your new style and preferences.

Factors That Can Affect the Cost of Furniture Refinishing

  • The Current Condition: If your furniture pieces are damaged and need more structural fixes rather than just an aesthetic facelift, it will increase the overall price. The better condition that your piece is in, the less the refinishing process will take, and the cheaper the job will be.
  • Age of the Furniture: The older and more delicate that your furniture is, the more time and equipment it might take to properly refinish it.
  • Furniture Size: The larger the size of your furniture, the more time and more work it will take to refinish it. Also, the bigger the piece the more materials you’ll need.
  • Complexity: If your furniture piece has difficult angles, grooves, and unique markings, the more time and expertise it will take to thoroughly refinish the piece. The type of material that needs to be stripped or removed can also increase the amount of time and effort it takes.
