Should I get my leather restored? It’s hard to deny the practicality of leather furniture with children and pets. In addition, many people totally and completely love leather. Here is a story about leather restoration from a similarly interested consumer:
“We bought high-quality furniture leather but after 11 years of solid use, it was wearing out. So, last year when it came time to buy something new we had to decide what was going to stay and what was going to go. Almost an entire year after getting our leather couch refurbished. It still looks great! We are so happy with how our couch turned out! You’re probably wondering how much it cost to have our couch all fixed up. First, I should tell you that the couch cost around $2100 dollars brand new when we bought it 11 years ago. When we looked at brand new leather couches we would easily pay $2500-3500 for similar quality. So, that said, we paid a little less than $800 to get it completely refurbished. However, we did have the option to pay less if we decided not to do everything that could be done. We opted to go for the full renovation because we decided that we would keep it for at least another 5 years. He told us that with our level of wear-and-tear and the grade of our leather that we could expect to get at least another five to 10 years of life out of it.
Here’s what he did:
- Thoroughly cleaned the leather
- Repaired the tear
- Added new filling to the back cushions
- Added new cushions and filler to the seat cushions
- Refinished the leather and added new color to give it a brand new appearance
