Reupholster or Buy New?

Deciding to reupholster or buy new can sometimes seem as if you’re at a crossroads. A piece of furniture can have sentimental value that makes it hard to replace. However, a new piece of furniture can offer an exciting change to the environment of your home.

You may find yourself thinking “I hate to just get rid of this sofa” or “It’s so hard to find a good sofa”. The decision to purchase a new sofa is a personal one and many things should be considered.

Is the sofa sentimental? If yes, then you may want to caution on the side of keeping it, or move it into another living space.

Is the sofa made well enough to be worth reupholstering? If you decide to reupholster, have fun with it! Add some color to a previously dull fabric selection.

How much do I like this sofa? This may seem like an obvious one but is often overlooked when trying to be budget conscience. No matter how much you saved on a piece of furniture, if you hate it, you overpaid.

Buying a new sofa is even more economically competitive and options of color and style are amazing!  If you do decide to buy new, you will have an extraordinary opportunity to revitalize or reinvent a living space.
