Importance of furniture Replacement
Furniture replacement is not often undertaken by homeowners because of its prohibitive costs. Old furniture can be easy to upgrade, but high quality furniture may require the kind of specialized repair that does not come cheap. Sometimes homeowners prefer to continuously repair old furniture rather than replace them. The following indicators indicate when it is better to replace furniture than repair it:
The weight of furniture such as sofa sets is a good indicator of whether or not it should be repaired and not replaced. A heavy base for a sofa set indicates durability. If the base material of a sofa is light, re-upholstery might cost more than or just about the same as the price of a new sofa.
It is important to determine if the piece of furniture correctly fits the room. If it does, then it might be better to repair it. If it does not, replacing it with a piece that blends with the colors of the room is will be a good investment. It will add style to the room, and enhance its overall look.
If the furniture in question does not carry out its functions, it should be replaced. For instance, a beautifully sculptured chair that cannot carry a lot of weight is not fulfilling its function. This is because guests or family members cannot sit on it, but only admire it. It would be prudent to replace it with a beautiful but functional chair.
When a homeowner has an emotional attachment to a piece of furniture, he or she should repair it and not replace it. The emotional value of a product is of more worth to a homeowner than its practical value. Pieces of furniture that have been passed from generation to generation are harder to replace, even if they are worn out because of what they stand for or remind their owners of.
If the furniture squeaks when sat on, or its hinges stretch, replacement is a better choice than repair. Such chairs often give out at the most inopportune times, and can cause a lot of embarrassment for their users. One should replace them as soon as they show signs of wearing out, or looseness in the hinges. If a homeowner is unaware of how to assess a certain weakness, it is good to acquire the opinion of upholsterers, carpenters or other specialists who deal with furniture.
It is important for a homeowner to consider the space that a piece of furniture occupies in the room before replacing it. When most homeowners engage in furniture replacement, they prefer to purchase pieces of furniture that are larger, and of better quality than the previous ones.
It is important to determine if there is enough space for such improvements before purchasing them. Sometimes homeowners replace furniture only to find that they have to place the new piece in a different room because it is too large to fit in the space of the old one.
