Reupholstery Tips from Antiquers

Owning furniture comes with its own set of problems. Not least of which is the need to reupholster. If you are in this situation, read on for the best tips from The Foam Factory.

Clean It

Make sure your seat backs are clean before upholstering it yourself or paying someone else to do it. This not only makes it easier to handle, but keeps it from tracking debris everywhere. If you are a purist, it will also keep your other furniture clean.

Order Materials

There is little worse than taking a chair apart only to realize that it needs something else. If you just need replacement cushions, there isn’t any need to take a chair or sofa apart. However, if your furniture really does need to be taken apart, you want to be sure.

Be Sure It’s Good For Re-use

This is a big one. Make certain your chair or foam seat is good enough to be reupholstered. This could mean looking for a name or sitting on it to make sure it does not wobble or tilt. If you truly love a piece, this may not make a difference to you, but it is important nonetheless.

If you have a chair or sofa that needs to be reupholstered, take a look at the tips above. Make it clean, be sure what it needs and make certain it’s good enough. That is all you really need.
