The Process of Professional Furniture Reupholstery

What to Expect and What to Consider

Reupholstering furniture involves more effort and preparation than what you may expect but the end results are always worth it. It’s best to ask for the help of skilled professionals to ensure that you get the best outcome possible.

Size of the Piece

The size of your furniture for professional upholsterers to work on is something to consider in terms of cost, or time of completion . Bigger pieces of furniture will require more materials and may consist of several separated parts like cushions or pillows.

Type of Fabric

Some fabrics are more suitable and much more robust than others, able to withstand years of wear and tear. Choosing the appropriate fabric design to match the room aesthetic while addressing function is important, especially when browsing thousands of upholstery fabric.

Replacement Fillers, Legs, and Springs

Among others, these three common components of furniture get a lot of abuse and their restoration is included in the reupholstering process. They need to be intricately restored to make sure that they’re in top shape with the right materials like foam or batting. Restoring pieces takes skill and care when older furniture may be more delicate or antique.

Special Requests

You can also request an assortment of features to be added to your piece of furniture. Any piping, tufting, or buttons are fun additions to show off style, and will also involve an intricate process of sewing and checking on compatibility.
