Renovating and updating classroom and cafeteria furniture can save your school a lot of time and money. Whether you need to fix broken chairs, desks, or tables, or if you’re looking to give classrooms or the cafeteria a fresh look, you should consider renovating existing furniture.
Here are three reasons why you should renovate your school's furniture, rather than buy new.
School furniture, in today’s world, needs to be able to meet a wide range of purposes and be multi-functional. It should also be dependable and durable, comfortable, and appealing.
New-looking, well-kept furnishings, and surroundings help students & visitors have pride in the school. Matching furnishing colors to school colors also contribute to school spirit.
Lead times for purchasing new furniture can be up to 4-6 weeks, or longer, which proves to be difficult when there are time constraints. Furniture renovation projects can be completed quickly and efficiently without causing major disruptions.
For many school districts, it’s difficult to get funding for new furnishings. Choosing to renovate & fix-up existing furniture is easier to get approval for and saves the school money.
Not only will the school avoid the large expense of buying new furnishings, but it also allows the existing furniture to last even longer, saving money long term.
