Is Custom Upholstery Right For You?

  • May 21, 2017

What do you do with that old couch or love seat that’s been sitting in your living room for generations? Do you throw it out because it’s looking old and ratty? Absolutely not! The furniture is still solid and reliable; it just needs a bit of a face lift. Take it to the upholsterer’s and give it a brand new cover.

Custom upholstery offers a number of benefits, including:

Customization – Imagine being able to change the appearance of that old couch to reflect your home or apartment’s modern décor. With custom upholstery, you can give the old a new look and improve the appearance of your rooms. Or, you can upholster it almost exactly the way it was and keep that couch that has been in your family for years. With custom upholstery, you can do exactly what you want.

Restoration – So many people throw out the old to make room for the new. But what if you don’t want to get rid of the couch that you sat on as a child, or you don’t want to spend money on a brand new couch when you have a perfectly good one? With custom upholstery, you can simply restore the furniture to good condition. It will be almost as good as new, but the same old comfy couch you’ve loved for years.

Durability – The cover you use for your furniture can help to increase their lifespan. Certain materials are stain-resistant, meaning they’ll survive your pets and/or children for longer. Some materials are easier to clean after that couch dinner date night or SuperBowl Sunday. Finding the right materials for the furniture upholstery will help to make it last longer.

Cost-Effectiveness – If you compare the cost of a brand new couch to the cost of reupholstering it, you’ll find that custom upholstery is usually the better choice. You’ll spend less on the new upholstery than you would buying a new piece of furniture—much less a whole set!

Comfort – You’ve built your living room décor around that couch or piece of furniture, so why buy new furniture that will throw everything off? Keeping the same furniture will help you to keep the layout of the room the same, but perhaps with a new color, pattern, or look to enhance the interior décor. Upholstering your furniture will keep the level of comfort you’re accustomed to, but make the furniture as good as new.

In the end, that’s the most important aspect of custom upholstery: it enables you to keep the furniture you love, but gives it a brand new look and feel. It’s the best of both worlds!
