Are my sofas worth reupholstering?
We have two sofas in our living room which we have owned for almost 20 years. They are an outdated color and looking a little worse for the wear. However we like the style, they fit well in the space we have and my DD18 doesn't want them to go because they are so comfortable (great for napping). They are from Norwalk and purchased for around 700-750 each new. Considering they have been used daily by a family with four kids, they have held up well. My one complaint is the foam wrapping the seat cushions has shifted over the years and I have to readjust it occasionally. The springs also squeak now which is annoying.
So are they worth reupholstering or should they be replaced? We don't have a large budget, maybe 1000 for each at the most. Also what do I look for in a reupholsterer? We live in a small midwest town.
I do have to say the flash on the photo makes the sofa appear much dirtier than in person. They are more worn than dirty but you can see why they need new upholstery!
