How to get the best Antique Restoration results in Perth?

Have you watched those antique roadshows or other TV programs where they find an old piece of furniture and after giving it some love and care, they sell it for many times its original value? Whether it is a piece of furniture that you have found at a garage sale or the old one from your grandparent’s house that nobody wants to say goodbye to, there is a perfect solution and that is to restore these treasured pieces of history.

Whatever the piece is made of, there are many methods to restore the value of fixtures, whether it is to restore the timber, re-do the upholstery or even repair the leather. Professional restoration specialists at Southside Upholstery can not only fix small signs of wear and tear but also completely restructure your antique furniture so you can get years more of use and make even more memories. Even furniture that have been through water or fire damage can be restored to their original glory.

First step in deciding whether you should restore a piece is to investigate its origins. Try and look for manufacturer tags or even a model number and using a quick search determine how much the piece could be worth. Or forget about the commercial value and just go with your heart, if you want a piece for your home it doesn’t even matter how much its worth.

Be aware of all the DIY projects on the internet that make restoring antiques seem like an easy weekend project. The truth is by using inappropriate materials and techniques you could actually destroy the value of antique furniture and end up with a finish that won’t last. A restoration project can cost anywhere from $100 to $2,000 depending on the scope but can more than double the value of your furniture.

To make sure that you get the best quality restoration that lasts for decades, consult with professional restorers. Southside Upholstery is a WA family owned business that has a history of highest quality restorations in Perth for over 60 years and even provides a lifetime warranty of their work. They can do an assessment of your pieces and give you a quote and timeline of the restoration along with instructions of care.
