What are the pro's and con's?

Is it worth it to reupholstery my chair/couch/etc?

  • This is by far the most common question asked of all upholsters and the short answer is that's really up to you.  Often times, the cost to reupholster a piece can be equal to or more than the cost of replacing that piece.  There are several things to consider before you decide to go ahead or not. 

    • Is the piece a family heirloom?  You might want to spend the money to keep the piece in good shape and be able to preserve it for the next generation.

    • Does the piece have minimal wear or is really well made and just needs new fabric?  You might want to spend the money for a custom slip cover or in some cases a piece can simply be recovered - the old fabric taken off and the inner materials reused and recovered with new fabric.

    • Was the piece inexpensive (maybe a hand-me-down or free from a friend)?  If so, it might be worth it to reupholster the piece instead of investing in something new.

    • Is the piece a unique shape or size, something funky or fits perfectly in a small space?  In these cases you might also want to invest in reupholstering something you just won't find anywhere else.

 

  • Typically newer furniture is made in a quick and inexpensive fashion.  When it's taken apart I find that many of the internal components need to be replaced to ensure the piece will last you a good long time.  I prepare estimates with expected expenses but it can be hard to estimate what may need to be replaced on the inside of the piece.

 

  • The reality is that if you are trying to save money by reupholstering rather than replacing, it's unlikely that you will be able to do so.  Quality craftsmanship is not inexpensive but will give you quality results. 

What will it cost?

What will it cost to reupholster my chair/couch?

  • Pricing is always customized for each piece depending on the size, the complexity of the work and repairs needed.  In some cases a piece can be made simpler to cut down on costs.  For example, if you have a tufted piece but want to reduce your cost, I can modify the piece to have a smooth back or use cushions instead.

 

  • Quotes are free of charge and I can typically send a rough estimate with several pictures of the item to be reupholstered.  A more accurate estimate can be given in person but major repairs can usually only be found once the piece is opened up.  I will communicate any increases in cost due to repair needs before I fix those things just to be sure you have all the information possible and are not suprised by the cost at the end of the project.

What about fabric?

Do you have fabric?  Do I have to find fabric?

  • ​I'm happy to help with selecting a fabric and will always let you know how much fabric I will need for your project. 

  • Currently my primary supplier is Greenhouse Fabrics.  Greenhouse is a fourth generation family company who offers a wide range of beautiful fabrics for your project!  If you can't find a fabric you like with Greenhouse Fabrics, there are several others to choose from.  Let me know what you're looking for and I'll find it for you!

  • You are welcome to provide your own fabric as long as it meets durability needs and minimum yardage requirements for your project as determined by Renovo. 

 

  • If purchasing fabrics online, ALWAYS order a sample size or small yardage so you can be sure you like the color, texture and style.  Some fabrics have a sheen that can't be seen online and colors don't always match from screen to screen.

Do you pickup/deliver or do I need to bring my furntiure to you?

  • Pick up and delivery are free within 25 miles of Bozeman.  Or, if you can meet me within 25 miles of Bozeman I will waive the pick up/delivery charge.
