Furniture Restoration: How Does it Factor into the Recession?

The recession has wreaked havoc on many industries, the result of the real estate market being hit extremely hard. A trickle down effect is typical, and this long lasting recession has touched virtually every industry and market you can think of.

Furniture is among the industries that have felt the impact. After all, do you pay your electricity bill or reupholster your sofa?  Having said this, due to the fact that many small businesses have not managed to stay afloat, when you do find an artisan that offers quality furniture repairs, you might want to hold onto their number.

The Number You Have Dialed is No Longer in Service …

Sad but true, many mom-and-pop stores and services have gone under.  The owner of Tradition Furniture Restoration has paid attention to the sign on the wall and has discovered that giving back is a great way to keep your doors open. He does this by making valuable suggestions: options that cost less than purchasing new.

Dialing it Down By Offering Discounts

No matter how hard hit the furniture industry is, there are times when a furniture repair needs to be done. If one of your caned kitchen chairs is broken, it’s still far more frugal to repair the one than trying to find one replacement chair or buying a full set of six.

Other ways to save by repairing or refinishing are:

  • Ask about cleaning, touching up and polishing your dining room set rather than a full refinishing or purchasing new.
  • If the kitchen table is on its last legs, contract to reglue the legs and reinforce with wood screws. It’s still more cost effective than replacing the table.
  • Your sofa need not be replaced because the seat cushions are worn out. Simply order a couple of yards of fabric and have them recovered.

Furniture restoration and upholstering can be the answer to your budgetary concerns. Tradition Furniture Restoration serves the tri-county areas of Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade.
