We all have that beloved piece of furniture that has unfortunately seen
better days. Most of us hide it away until we finally decide to get rid
of it, but there is another option! Instead of throwing your beloved furniture
away, give it new life by reupholstering it. This option lets you replace
the broken and worn down parts of the furniture with newer and better
pieces. You can make an old piece usable and redesign it so it fits in
with your current home décor style.
Before you can start your redesign project, you will need to determine
how much fabric you need. Many elements impact how much upholstery fabric
you need. This includes the size of the piece, the shape of the piece,
how many detachable pieces it contains, and additional features such as
zippers and buttons.
Working with a fabric store is the best way to get a good estimate of how
much fabric you need to reupholster your furnishings. You can also find
upholstery fabrics and get advice for your project.
