FAQS

What sets FURNITURE REVOLUTION apart?

Each piece is professionally restyled using only the best materials. We carefully select our furniture for style and quality, if there are any defects we will rectify them. Our normal process is to thoroughly clean the piece, seal it if necessary and apply 2-3 coats of high quality chalk paint. Sometimes we may distress, stencil or add decoupage to the item in a way that sympathetically enhances the style. To ensure our restyling is long lasting we will then seal every piece with a protective sealant making the piece washable and hard wearing. We like to paint the parts you can’t see such as the insides of drawers, cupboards, and the backs for added style. However, this does not have to be the case as it depends on the Customer’s preference. We love restyling all types of furniture from old to new and mid-century modern vintage which is now becoming very popular.

Can FURNITURE REVOLUTION do it cheaper?

Yes, is the short answer, but the price for this item is calculated from the original costs of the furniture, the materials and time spent in restyling it to a high standard. The more materials and time spent result in more stylish and longer lasting furniture. However, if you have a smaller budget, speak to us (Richard 07710 554588), as we can restyle a piece you own, or try and find a piece for you at a cost that suits you.

What’s the difference between wax and a sealant?

Wax was popular because it gives a warm matt finish, but it does have its limitations in that it is wipeable, but not washable. It also is not suitable for heavy domestic, commercial, damp or greasy environments. Fortunately, there are now water based sealants on the market that give a similar warm matt finish but are washable, hard wearing and suitable for all environments. The Everlong one coat matt sealer is our favourite to use.

What about delivery?

If we have to charge delivery, we will find the most competitive price which we will then pass on to the customer at the same cost. Of course, you can always collect if this is possible.
