Sofa Reupholstery Sofa


Fabric drives the cost, with a typical sofa using at least 16 yards of fabric and a typical chair using about 7 yards. Cost for upholstery fabric typically costs starts around $45 per yard. Designer fabric typically starts around $85; while high-quality velvet fabric can cost as much as $200, says Vince.

The amount of fabric affects labor costs — more fabric means more labor. Intensive or special reupholstery work, such as the following, can increase labor costs:

• Attaching, replacing or fixing welt cords, or fabric cords that outline the seams of cushions and pillows

• Making sure that shapes and patterns align

• Tufting, forming patterns by threading through fabric and tying the ends with buttons or knots

Whether the cost of reupholstery is worth it depends on the quality and sentimental value of the furniture, says Vince. If you have acquire your sofa from the likes of Ikea, Courts or Vhive, the structure of the furniture may not be worth the reupholstery as it will defintely cost more than buying a new one from them.
