Ugh, there it is again: that dog-chewed, ripped-up old sofa that has taken on a strange off-green tinge. Or, you’ve walked in the door and come face to face with that chipped, dusty old cabinet, the one that looks like it was a centrepiece in the 60s version of The Addams Family!
We’re not here to judge you for your reasons behind hanging onto this archaic furniture, but we are here to advise on a revamp, complete with stunning new sofas, lush, comfy bedding and elegant cabinets with stylish antique drawer knobs.
Here are four reasons why it’s a very good idea:
Freshen your space
Obviously, the most pressing reason to upgrade your furniture is to reinvigorate your space, and especially a tired and hagged old space that looks like it’s been neglected for the past 20 years! If you take a look around your living room, bedroom, foyer or garden and can see that this is definitely your space, then your home can definitely use a stunning new look.
But it may not be that every piece of furniture you own is bringing down the aesthetic – it may just be a certain armchair that looks like it’s had a good 10,000 seats and could be just as comfortable on the nature strip. You may not have to change up everything – just pick the pieces that really need urgent replacing!
Create a new style
Modernising your home doesn’t only make it look amazing, but it’s also good for the occupants’ self-esteem, as it creates an enhancing feeling of home pride, and not a sense of being dragged down by dodgy, tired-old furniture that gives one a sense of unease every time they encounter it!
Enhance the comfort
Because old furniture becomes damn uncomfortable! Sloping cushions, pointy wooden bits, chips that dig into the feet – it’s all just the daily grind for a 40 year old piece of furniture that has well-and-truly had it!
Conversely, there is nothing more lush than heading home to an uber-comfy new bed, one that makes you instantly snoozy, one that makes you say, “ahh, now this is a good bed, I can’t believe it took me so long…”
If you really want to enhance the feeling of home comfort, then there is no better way to do so than to enlist a brand new set of high quality, extra comfy furniture – you’ll never regret the purchase!
You’ll simply be beautifying your home
And at the end of the day what’s wrong with that? New beds, couches or cabinets, complete with stunning antique drawer knobs, are some of the best ways to beautify your home, and why not? A beautiful home is a space that everyone can enjoy, complete with an airy, bright feeling that makes one completely forget about their dingy old, thrown-together pieces that look more suited to the dodgiest of op shops!
So, if you’ve been thinking about a furniture fashion switch, take a look at your current pieces, decide which ones can use the old nature strip treatment, and go to work on finding stunning new pieces to truly invigorate your space!
