Restoring a piece can be as simple a task as performing light cleaning. It could involve removing dirt or grime that disfigures the piece, e.g. grime that accumulates over the years on the surface of a furniture piece. It may also include complete rebuilding or replacement.

The main goal of restoration is to "re-establish" the original appearance or functionality of a piece. Functionality can be achieved by repairing, whereas restoring an item is an art-form. Therefore, restoration of valuable objects should always be done by expert professionals who are sensitive to all the issues and who ensure that the furniture retains or increases its value after restoration.
