Reupholster or Buy New?
Is Reupholstery always the best Choice?
Let's consider a couple of points before making a decision.
- You have family heirloom.
If your furniture has sentimental value, such as grandma's antique chair. Easy decision! First thing is to find a good reputable upholstery shop and get an estimate.
- Create your own sofa "have fun"
We can change the style of your existing sofa, or build a new one. You saw a picture of a sofa in a magazine that you liked, ask your upholsterer how you can turn your sofa into that one.
-You have Quality Furniture
Your piece is 15 to 20 years old and was from a high quality furniture manufacturer when you bought it. It would cost more to purchase new at the same level of quality you have than to reupholster.
-You don't have Quality Furniture
It doesn't make sense to spend money on a piece that could be replaced with a new one at a lower cost. For example it costs around $2000 to reupholster an average sofa. This includes mid-grade fabric and labor costs. This clearly doesn't make sense to spend that amount of money on a sofa that only cost $500 to start with.
-Here is the exception to the "cost" rule.
You have a piece of furniture that you love, and it fits in the room just perfectly. it may be worth reupholstering it regardless of cost. Sometimes finding just the right piece of furniture for your room is a difficult task.
