How Does Leather Color Restoration Work?

April 8, 2023

Leather color restoration is one of the best ways to restore faded leather — for a fraction of the cost of replacing it. Here’s how the color restoration process works with Creative Colors International.

Pop Culture Spurs Home Remodeling

Popular shows on HGTV, such as “Flip or Flop” and “Property Brothers,” are fueling demand for home remodeling. HGTV’s “Home Town,” starring home renovation experts Ben and Erin Napier, who balance family life while they revitalize their small town of Laurel, Mississippi, has attracted more than 23 million viewers since its season premiere a year ago. Home remodelers such as Chip and Joanna Gaines and Syd and Shea McGee are household names with their own product lines.

The growth of the real estate industry and the influence of social media are also prompting people to make home interiors a priority. Americans spent $624 million on home improvement projects in 2021, spending a median of $1,636 per project, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Housing Survey.

Leather is an attractive choice for remodelers because it provides a neutral backdrop for a room. Leather furniture allows homeowners to mix up their interior design with the same high-quality pieces. It’s durable and designed to withstand frequent use. Genuine leather develops a patina over time, which improves its appearance and showcases its quality and can last at least 25 years with proper care. Leather furniture is also comfortable. North America has the largest share of the leather market, which is on track to reach $13.38 billion by 2029.

CCI Keeps Leather in Tip-Top Shape

Normal wear and tear can leave your leather furniture needing a refresh. Rather than open your wallet at a big-box furniture store and sacrifice quality for convenience, rely on color restoration to give your furniture a facelift.

Our service technicians come to your home or business to fix rips, tears, scratches, burns, and fading in a variety of leather products, such as sofas, car seats, and jackets.

What is Leather Color Restoration?

The sun can slowly degrade the appearance of your leather furniture. Depending on the position of the furniture in your room, the sun’s ultraviolet rays can start to fade the furniture as the years roll by. To prevent fading, we recommend rearranging your furniture occasionally, to evenly distribute the sunlight or closing the curtains during the brightest parts of the day. Leather is also more prone to fading if it is dry. Applying a leather conditioner on a regular basis will go a long way to prevent fading. If the damage is already done, CCI has a solution.

Leather color restoration is a multi-step process designed to restore your high-quality leather furniture to like-new condition. There are numerous leather color balms and dyes available for purchase if you want to pursue a DIY fix. While those solutions can be effective, finding the best repair technique and matching colors is better left to the professionals.

CCI works with a variety of clientele, including homeowners, manufacturers, furniture stores, warranty companies, business owners, movers, and insurance claims. Once your furniture is restored to its original glory, a CCI technician can help you devise a maintenance plan to keep your furniture in good condition. We have the products and skills to ensure your pieces look great for years to come. CCI also provides sanitization services and odor elimination to ensure safety and refresh your home or place of business.
