Say goodbye to dull dressers and boring bannisters! With these six tips, you can completely re-energize your living space by making changes to your existing furniture.
Upholstery is great for adding new life to old furniture. It can also be a convenient way to protect your couches and chairs from stains, spills, crumbs, messes and discoloration. If someone has a food-related accident on your loveseat, simply remove and wash the upholstery to make it appear as good as new.
When’s the last time you took a rag and some polish to your furniture? You might need a special kind of wood polish depending on the types of timber scattered around your home, but rest assured that everything will look better after a little elbow grease.
If you have an old, sad-looking dresser, think about applying a fresh coat of paint before putting it on the side of the road. Sometimes all your furniture needs is a new look to make it seem like a whole new item. Paint can also be used to disguise any unsightly stains that are bringing down the value of the piece!
Are your cupboards so low that you’re constantly stooping to reach your pots and pans? Or maybe you’re tired of stretching to the very top shelf for the books you want. Adjusting the height of your furniture can save you a lot of time and energy around the house, and what’s more, you won’t have to replace any favorite or beloved pieces just because they’re a little inconvenient for you.
Multipurpose furniture has been sweeping the nation as a convenient and affordable alternative to bigger living spaces. Instead of moving into somewhere with more square footage, you can combine the functions of your furniture to improve the utility of the space you already have!
Everything is better on wheels. From mobile desks to rolling laundry baskets, furniture casters can be applied to a wide variety of household goods, and they’ll all reduce back-breaking labor around the home. They’re especially useful for those with strength or mobility issues who can’t move furniture easily.
These are just a few ways to improve your furniture. As you can see, it doesn’t take an unlimited budget, just a willingness to make changes and think outside the box!
