Somerset Upholsterer, Inspirit Upholstery of Wellington offer fantastic advice on the advantages of re upholstering your favourite piece of furniture.
Upholstery refers to the materials used to stuff and cover seats, sofas, chairs, and most furniture that requires such material, with the exception of bed mattresses. Upholstery can include a variety of materials including leather and vinyl, foam and cotton padding.
When time has taken it's toll on your favourite piece of furniture, an upholsterer will revamp your upholstery for you. If you have a sofa that has seen better days, don't throw it out just yet. You might be able to save some money by getting it recovered and restuffed. You can even change the type, pattern and colour of the upholstery when you do this, so it will seem like you got a brand new sofa.
Most upholsterers will bring you one or more books of sample upholstery from which you can choose. You do not have to stick to what materials you had previously. Many times you can also pick the grade of foam to restuff it. Foam padding comes in degrees of density. Some people prefer firm padding, while others like something a little more cushioned.
The great advantage with redoing upholstery rather than buying new is that you can pick colours, patterns and fabrics that go perfectly with your rug, window dressings and the overall colour scheme of a room.
When choosing your new upholstery carry an upholstery sampler so you can walk around the house with the samples and place them next to the rug, drapes, and other furniture, ensuring a good match. If you already have well made furniture, replacing it with new furniture of the same quality will likely be more expensive than getting it reupholstered.
For a consultation please do not hesitate to contact us today, as the price will vary depending on the upholstery chosen, the padding and the amount of materials required.
