People often ask "how much does it cost to do upholstery?" The answer depends on many factors, including the style of the furniture, whether the cushions are attached or loose, whether there are any decorative items such as buttons or welt, whether it will require repairs and the fabric cost, just to name a few.
Older furniture was made of harder woods and is worth having reupholstered. New furniture is more cheaply made and is usually more cost-effective to just replace.
Good Upholstery Takes Time
The disassembly alone can take up to a day for a large piece such as a sectional sofa or a recliner. Measuring, cutting, matching patterns, and sewing are all done by hand and with industrial sewing machines. Certain pieces cannot go under the sewing machine and must be hand-stitched, which takes even more time.
The padding is another area where quality matters. We use a special type of high-quality foam that does not lose its rebound easily and lasts a long time. It's not foam that you can get off the shelf.
Our fabrics are higher-quality than you can get yourself at a fabric store. Fabrics average around $50 per yard. A few are less expensive and many are more expensive than that. Fabric choice matters. There is much more to consider than just color or pattern.
The Choice to Reupholster Usually Comes From One of These Factors
Keep in mind that re-upholstery is not a cheaper alternative to buying new furniture.
The piece is comfortable and fits your body perfectly
The piece has sentimental value or has been passed down in your family
The piece is an antique and/or can no longer be found
