Kitchen chairs have long been the unsung heroes of a busy house. Food and drink, tears and dribbles, paint, muddy shoes, glue, glitter, marker and pen, and being dragged from one end of the room to the other is the test of any decent chair. So what to do when the marker turns to makeup and the muddy shoes are banned from the house?
It’s difficult to visualise the chairs that have been in your kitchen home for twenty years being any other shape, colour or texture and that is why so many people automatically choose to replace rather than recover. If your chairs have been around for twenty years they’re good quality and that, above all, is what really matters to the value of your furniture.
The joy of recovering, repairing, reupholstering and upcycling is that anything and everything is possible. Roberts Furniture also repairs furniture so the only impediment to transforming your furniture is a poor quality frame. Once the frame is sound, the rest can be revamped any way you like. This is particularly useful when children in the house grow up and the risk of dropped ice-cream, spilled drinks and sticky fingers is eliminated, giving you the chance to have the furniture you’ve always dreamed of.
Don’t feel you should ever be “stuck” with a classic style simply because it won’t date and isn’t worn or torn. You should be able to enjoy your furniture and by changing the fabric, colour, shape over the years will allow you to enjoy your furniture and enable it to match your changing tastes, lifestyle and decor. A fresh coat of paint and newly covered suite of furniture can transform a room, without breaking the bank or disrupting the whole room.
