Even if you’re careful with your things, the sad truth is that furniture declines in quality with age, so it’s natural for your sofa, mattress, chairs, and other pieces to sustain a bit of wear and tear. Because these are typically expensive items, you want to hold onto them for as long as you can. Besides, just because your leather couch has a gnarly gash on it from your cat, that doesn’t mean it’s no longer a comfy place to sit. Luckily, there are steps you can take to make it less of an eyesore. There’s actually a whole market for products that don’t necessarily repair furniture, per se, but they do conceal blemishes and give your prized pieces a bit of a pick-me-up. Although they result in small, inexpensive changes, these products have the power to make your decades-old furnishings look brand-new again. So save your money, and check out our top Amazon finds for fixing furniture below.

This first one is for cat owners. If your kitty has a bad habit of scratching up the furniture, we suggest investing in one or more of these sofa protectors, which turn the corners of your couch into scratching posts.

They work exactly as advertised, they last much longer than I expected, and they’re available in five different colors so you can choose the one that best matches the color of the furniture you’re protecting."

Its quick lock construction allows for fast assembly, so your bed will feel sturdier in no time.
