Signs That You Should Reupholster Your Couch or Chair

reupholster your chair

Has your furniture seen better days? The main feature of your living room is your couch and chairs. A place where you can gather with friends and family; enjoying their company throughout the year. Unfortunately, wear and tear accumulate over time and even though you may love your furniture, something needs to be done. That begs the question; at one point do you consider reupholstering your beloved furniture? The experts at Foxwood Restorations can give you some signs of when you should reupholster your couch or chair!

Fabric is Worn Out

One of the first indicators that you need some reupholstery is worn fabric. Between guests sitting down, pets lying down, and other daily activities, your furniture’s fabric can be stained, torn, and so much more! After all, the furniture is being lived with. Once your furniture starts gathering unremovable stains and unraveling in certain areas, it might be a good time to get it reupholstered.

Furniture Sagging

Is your body sinking into the furniture or it continues to sag after someone gets up? Sagging is a sign that the internal springs are losing their integrity. While there are some DIY tricks that you can use to stop the sagging, the best option is to get your furniture looked at for fixing and reupholstery.

Seams Are Visible

Seams are what hold the fabric together. Most pieces of furniture use special stitching that hides the inner seam inside. However, as the seam becomes loose, it will become visible. The foam cushion insides can also result in visible seams. Depending on your cushion filling, this could be an easy fix or it might need extra care.

Wood Shows Signs of Damage

The fabric of your furniture is not the only part of the piece you should  be concerned about. The legs of your couch and chair can also show wear and tear. People constantly kick their legs or accidentally scuff them. Also, if you have a puppy or kitten, you probably have the damage from the unavoidable teething phase. If you are lucky, you can fix up most of that stuff with wood polish. But if it’s got significant damage, you will need to get it replaced.Couch showing extreme signs of damage
