This week on Ireland’s Classic Hits Radio we’re looking at upskilling to upcycle your furniture. 


6 benefits of investing in household upholstery

Revamping your household furniture may seem daunting, but the result is so worth it.

  1. Your furniture will last much longer

Upholstering your furniture will without a doubt make it last much longer. Furniture like armchairs and sofas tend to be an investment, and often people choose to spend quite a lot of money on them because they are on display in the home and used every day.


  1. It makes your furniture pet and child-proof

No-one wants to feel worried about items in their home getting ruined and, to be honest, a home should be lived in to the full, meaning there will be rips, breakages and stains sometimes. But if you have a pet like a cat or dog, or young children, upholstering your living room furniture can protect it for much longer.


  1. You get to inject personality into your home

Your home is yours and you’re proud of it. So why not show the world how much you love it? Treat yourself to some luxury materials, and choose an upholstery design that reflects what you love.


  1. It’s a way to change the style of your home

Have you got an urge to restyle your home but really want to avoid spending too much money? Why not do some upholstery and pay a fraction of what you would do buying completely new furniture?


  1. It’s great for your mental health

This might seem out of place but it’s true! 


  1. Upholstery is the cheapest way and kindest to the environment

Upholstering your furniture is without a doubt cheaper than buying new furniture. Not only do you have to spend money on buying the furniture and getting it delivered, but you also have the hassle of getting rid of your current furniture and adding to landfill.
