The question comes up all of the time – is our furniture worth getting repaired or should we just replace it?
Here are some things to consider when making the decision to repair or replace:
Is the item part of a set of matched pieces?
Do you love the piece?
Does the item have sentimental value?
Can the item be replaced with a comparable new piece?
Are you willing to settle for a new piece of lesser quality?
If a damaged nightstand can be repaired and retain a bedroom set in its’ entirety, the bedroom set maintains a higher value.
In the case of dining chairs, the cost to repair/reglue most likely will exceed the cost of a moderately priced new chair. However, restoring the damaged chair will maintain the matched set.
Love the Piece
We occasionally have a customer who insists on spending a fortune to restore a piece that
has no real value, except in their eyes, only!
We’re honored to help them indulge their passion, no questions asked!
We can help to keep a piece functional without a full blown restoration.
It’s nice to have family pieces around that actually serve a purpose and we can tailor a restoration to fit your needs.
