Take a closer look at the piece of furniture you want to reupholster. Is the shape still sturdy? Is the upholstery worn and threadbare? Will the piece need new batting and cushions? Asking these questions will help you determine the scale of reupholstering you will need to undertake. If some parts of the couch are already sagging, you might need to replace the batting. If the frame itself is weak (wood is sagging, splintered, or broken), then you may need to replace these as well…or let go of the entire piece completely.
Also, how old is the furniture piece? If it is an antique or an heirloom item of great value, always get professional help so that you can replace and reinforce the couch without damaging the piece entirely. The value of the couch may diminish if you try to reupholster on your own without respecting its original look. In addition, the cost of profressional upholstery will cost in region of SGD 900 and above for a armchair, or $1500 for a 3 seater sofa. So if your sofa is not of good quality, it may not be worth having it upholster unless it has sentimental value to it.
Lastly, ask yourself: How much time do I have? Depending on the extent of wear and tear or damage, as well as the size of your couch or chair, reupholstering may take the upholster at least a week or two. If you plan on doing so, make sure you have all the information you’ll need.
