What Makes a Successful Furniture Refurbishing Business?

Owning a furniture refurbishing business can be a profitable opportunity for eager entrepreneurs ready to tackle business ownership. Creative Colors International can help you start a thriving small business in the restoration solutions industry.

People of all ages are concerned about the impact they have on the environment. Long periods of high temperatures, as well as severe weather, including floods and storms, are encouraging many Americans to take steps to do their part. Americans recycle or compost nearly 94 million tons of waste. A new survey revealed 77 percent of Americans are concerned about the environmental impact of products they buy, and they want the businesses they visit to share their values.

This fall, world leaders gathered in Glasgow, Scotland, to attend COP26, the 2021 United Nations climate change conference, where they debated worldwide efforts to combat global warming. Approximately 40,000 delegates registered for the event, and news agencies diligently covered the conference, where negotiations took place on reducing carbon emissions and protecting natural resources.

At a time when both world leaders and average Americans are paying close attention to the impact they have on the environment, furniture refurbishing plays an important role in helping them reduce their carbon footprint. Refurbishing is environmentally friendly. Instead of sending products to the landfill, refurbishing injects new life into existing furniture and returns family heirlooms to their original luster.
