When it comes to furniture, many of us are pretty attached to our old home furnishings. After all, they play a significant part in our daily lives and become a vital part of our interior décor. All over the world, you’ll find old furniture that should be thrown away, but is kept out of sentimentality- or simply because people are too lazy to get rid of their old furniture.
Indeed, we need to be more unforgiving towards our old furniture. If a sofa is starting to sag in the middle so that you’re practically sitting on the floor, or a dining table that wobbles so much that your food ends up in your lap, then it is time for a change. You need to think about whether something can be done about the problem, or if the simplest solution is just to get rid of the old furniture and treat yourself to something new.
Sometimes, you’ll find that with a little effort and the right tools, you can restore your furniture, meaning you don’t have to get rid of old furniture at all. Repair or restoration is often the case with wooden furniture like dining tables- an old, scratched surface can be sanded down and re-varnished to restore them to prime condition. On the other hand, sofas are a lot trickier to repair- unless you have a lot of experience with doing upholstery, or are willing to fork out a significant amount of money to get your old sofa fixed, then it will likely be cheaper to junk it and buy a replacement.
Stains are another troublesome problem. They make your whole house look dirty, and are a sure sign that the furniture in question is long past its expiration date. If the upholstery is stained or torn up, then you need to think about whether it’s worth repairing or if it’s time for a change. The same goes for furniture that’s just old, not antique- if it doesn’t have any sentimental value, and isn’t fit for purpose, then just why are you keeping it around?
