Buying a new sofa is not cheap. If you are planning on buying a new sofa, there are a couple of things you should bear in mind. As a matter of fact, are you sure you need a new sofa? How about checking out a sofa reupholstery service in London instead?
Advantages of Sofa Reupholstery London
There are many advantages to having your old sofa reupholstered rather than taking it down to the tip. First of all, having your sofa reupholstered can save you a lot of money. Most of the time, there is nothing wrong with the frame of your sofa, but it is probably fair to say it has been subject to a bit of wear and tear. After a couple of years of the kids and the dog sitting on your sofa, it may just need a bit of love and attention.
Considering sofa reupholstery London will not only save you money, but it is also an environmentally-friendly choice. The stuffing in your sofa is not likely to be recycled. Instead, it is more likely to end up in a land refill site. But, when you reupholster your sofa, most of the old stuffing will be reused.
Of course, controlling the upholstery process from start to finish, also lets you choose the right fabric for you. If you have a young family, your kids probably still want to sit with their feet up and binge-watch Netflix on rainy days. The dog probably wants to sneak up for a cuddle or two. Washable fabric is the way to go when you have children and furry friends who simply can’t keep their feet or paws off the sofa.
Choosing the right colour is essential. Grey is the “in” color in 2020. Speak to your local upholsterer in London, and he will tell you that there are many different shades of grey.
Accessorising Your Newly Upholstered Sofa
The colour grey is also an easy colour to accessorise. Yes, your sofa will look brand new, but it is still nice to make a few more changes. The right accessories added to your sofa can lift an entire room.
What has become known as the “pink flamingo” trend is to set to continue for some time yet. However, that does not mean you have to follow suit. Instead of going for pink flamingo cushions, you could try scattering peacock cushions on your newly upholstered sofa. Add a vividly coloured spread along with some new curtains and you will have remodelled your entire living room on a small budget.
How much does reupholstering a sofa cost? That all depends on what kind of fabric you choose. Needless to say, the size of your sofa also matters. Most sofa upholstery London companies are happy to come out to check out your sofa. Tell them what you are looking for and they will come back to you with a quote within a matter of days.
Choosing to reupholster your sofa is a great option. You end up with a personal design and save money at the same time. What can be better than that?
