Couch Reupholstery Services in NYC
Does your couch look dreary? Instead of buying a new one, reupholster it. Whether you hope to give a space a makeover or re-establish an earlier look, reupholstery can change the couch tremendously. Reupholstering keeps the sofa out of a landfill.
It is a manageable and eco-accommodating plan. Quality furniture deserves reupholstery. The decision to reupholster benefits the décor and your budget if the suitable fabric is chosen. Here are the factors to consider before deciding if you should reupholster your couch to complement the décor.
Quality furniture is worth reupholstering.
Determine the quality of the couch. Some furniture manufactured today is not the same quality as that of years ago. A well-built sofa is worth the investment.
Does the couch fit the purpose?
If you invested time and money when choosing the ideal furniture for your home, there is no need to do it again. If the couch has seen better days but is so comfortable you do not want to part with it, fits perfectly in a room, or would be difficult to replace; upholstery gives it new life.
New fabric can transform a couch.
If you are thinking of replacing a couch to change in the décor, think about the fabric you want. A qualified upholstery business can work with you in finding the ideal material. Finding the perfect fabric can be a challenge. Bring an arm cap or pillow with you and the colors you want to match. It saves time second-guessing choices.
Choose a durable fabric.
Ask the upholsterer about how to clean it and the abrasion cycle. Most are ‘dry clean only.’ Some are washable.
Couches have different kinds of stuffing. If you notice it is harder to get up from the sofa or the foam has started to sink, you can replace it. An upholsterer takes out the old foam and puts in a new piece that is firmer or taller to give the couch more life.
It is an excellent idea to look at a couch before throwing it away to see what can be done to change it. If the sofa’s base is in good condition, but you want to change the color, an upholsterer can change not only the foam but also the colors and cushions.

A couch upholsterer takes the following steps.
- Removing the dust cover
- Removing the old upholstery
- Adding stuffing as needed
- Refinishing the frame
- Cutting and attaching new fabric
- Reattaching the dust cover
- Cutting and adding trim
- Adding the finishing touches
Measurements are taken of every piece of fabric on the couch. The couch is turned upside down to take off the legs. Old upholstery fabric is carefully removed. The cushions are removed and uncovered, and re-stuffed if necessary.
Whatever needs to be done to the frame is carried out. The upholsterer may sand it down and apply paint or stain. Upholstery fabric that was removed serves as a pattern for the new material. After attaching the new fabric, the dust cover is reattached. Decorative trim or cording covers up staples. The last step is adding any finishing touches to enhance the beauty.
