Have you been considering a new look, but you don’t want to invest the money into completely redecorating your home? Or do you have some favorite pieces – antiques or heirlooms – that you want to use in your home, but they just look shabby and run-down? Before you spend time and money shopping for new furniture and trying to donate or sell your old furnishings, you should consider reupholstering your existing pieces.
Is it worth it to reupholster?
Yes, reupholstery is worth it! Not only for antiques, but also for any furniture item that you have grown attached to that needs some attention. A change of fabric and some freshly-stuffed cushions can make a huge difference when you reupholster your furniture. Choosing to reupholster gives you the opportunity to select exactly what you want and make your “style vision” a reality.
How much does it cost to reupholster an ottoman, recliner, sofa or chair?
It may not always be cheaper to reupholster your furniture than to buy new, but this depends largely on the types of materials you choose. You should always consider the sentimental value of the item, as well as the overall quality of the piece, that you are considering for reupholstery. The size of the item is also a consideration. You will find that a sofa is considerably more than a chair, for instance.
What is the best fabric for upholstery?
There are many different fabrics to choose from to reupholster your furniture. The decision regarding which fabric type is the best is going to depend on your personal tastes. Some good things to consider when choosing your fabric are durability, fabric care, and your budget.
What is the most durable fabric for upholstered furniture?
It’s always advisable to select a durable fabric, especially for homes that have pets or small children. Leather is a durable fabric and a popular choice, but it can run up the cost of your reupholstery project. If you are looking for a fabric that is more budget-friendly, try cotton twill, nylon, or polyester. For homes with pets and children, consider a fabric like microfiber or faux suede, which are easy to wash and can handle heavy, everyday wear and tear.
What are the furniture fabric trends for 2020?
Wondering what the next big trend will be? Here are some things to look for in 2020. Boucle, florals, and acrylics are “in” this year, so keep this in mind when choosing your fabrics. Also, natural textiles like wool, cotton, and linen are really big as well, as we see an emphasis on all things natural in the home. One trend you probably want to steer clear of is the bold, solid-colored sofas that have been so popular. These are being replaced by more feminine and natural fabrics.
What is the most popular color for a couch?
While your choice of color should reflect your personal style and the surrounding décor, if you are undecided as to what you are looking for, neutral colors are always a safe bet. Think beige or cream-colored sofas. Nature tones are also popular, as are gray and brown. You can always add color to your sofa later with brightly-colored pillows or a patterned throw.
