Learn these tips to know if your sofa is worth recovering

By recovering the sofa, there was enough savings to add window treatments and decorative pillows 


Trying to decide whether you should find a sofa at a furniture store versus reupholster your current sofa? That's a good question!

1) If your sofa is comfortable, and it's a good brand, it's probably worth recovering. It can save you both precious time and money AND it's good for the environment!

2) A qualified interior designer can tell you if your sofa has 8 way hand tied coil springs, and if it's a hardwood frame. Many of today's sofas are imported from overseas, so they aren't as sturdy.

3) Best of all, when you recover, you aren't limited to a small selection of fabrics the sofa manufacturer provides.

These photos show the before & after of a reupholstered sofa in Summerfield NC. This client said they always had a "love hate feeling about the sofa". They loved the shape, but they wanted a more luxurious fabric and a more formal feel.  Notice that when you leave off the skirt, you get the look a new sofa!
