Our furniture reupholstery process

Step 1 Strip down
We will carefully strip down your furniture and remove all original fabric.

Step 2 Frame inspection and repair
The frame will be inspected and the necessary repairs will be carried out; joints will be tightened, dowelled, glued or screwed depending on what is required.

Step 3 Springs and webbing
Once we are happy with the frame, work will begin on the springs and webbing. Any springs and webbing that need replacing will be replaced.

Step 4 Rebuild
We will then begin to build the layers back up. Padding and stuffing is checked and replaced where required.

Step 5 Cutting and sewing
Finally, with a frame and padding restored your chosen fabric is measured and cut and sewn to shape.

Step 6 Upholstery
The fabric outer shell is sewn together and fixed to the frame using either traditional or modern methods of upholstery depending on your preference.

Step 7 Cushions
Finally your chosen cushion interiors or original cushions are fitted into the cushion covers.

Benefits of furniture reupholstering

Benefits of furniture reupholstering

Benefits of furniture reupholstering

1. Style change – Oftentimes in life, people’s styles change. It could be new preferences for colour, patterns or design. This is certainly no reason to waste a good piece of furniture or dump it in the landfills. For some, it could be that there are children in the home now, or pets in the home. If you’re doing some interior remodelling for your home or business, you may be facing new colour changes, new design needs or a more contemporary look. The right fabric is key, and this can be easily solved with the help of your expert upholstery professional.
Here are a few things to take into consideration when determining patterns…
Stripes: Choose a fabric with vertical stripes to add height, and horizontal stripes to add width or length to your room.
Bold patterns make an area appear smaller while smaller designs create a spacious look. Bold designs and bright colours are welcoming in rooms where you won’t be spending much time, like hallways or bathrooms.
If you are starting to design your room from scratch, choosing a fabric with colours you love is one of the best ways to begin. Try to analyze the proportions of the colour in the fabric, mostly peach with some creamy white and accents of blue, for example, and then use those colours in that proportion in your room.
2. Restoring or redesigning quality pieces – For many people, they realize their furniture piece is still in great shape except for the fabric, and its quality construction has lasted longer than some of their newer pieces. Before manufacturers were forced to cut corners in quality with mass-produced furniture, they were built with better quality and materials and altogether better workmanship. Older pieces have coil springs and hardwood frames that are doweled and glued; today’s pieces have rubber straps or zigzag coils instead of spring coils, and staples are used on frames. There are a few tricks to determining whether your piece is a candidate for reupholstering. First, its weight – if your sofa or chair is heavy, it’s probably well constructed. Another sign is the bottom. If it’s a solid webbed bottom, not a hollow bottom covered by a piece of fabric screening, then the piece probably has coil springs. Today, many furniture manufacturers have had to lower their costs to produce the pieces of furniture to keep up with their competition, so you aren’t receiving the quality that you would have received Even as recently as 10 years ago.
3. Sentimental reasons – Another major reason for reupholstering is purely sentimental. Your chair, sofa or loveseat is your favourite piece of furniture, or maybe you inherited the piece from your mother, grandmother or favourite aunt. Sometimes, everyone in the family loves the piece, including the dog… It’s satisfying to restore a piece that has been in the family for years. Many people who had their furniture re-upholstered contend that they wanted to preserve their memories of the furniture; perhaps it was the first piece of furniture acquired after their marriage or it has been handed down from generation to generation. Perhaps you want to restore a family heirloom or just update a special piece that brings you back in mind to precious times. Reupholstering that original can be your investment in sustaining a family history you need not live without! Updating an old collectable for your home or business for sentimental reasons can be a challenge and a reward, as well as a wonderful conversation piece for years to come. An expert upholsterer can help you maintain the unique individuality of a piece, or turn an old look into a new exciting fashion statement.
4. The environment – Instead of tossing out old and worn furniture, reupholster it to bring new life, and cut down on waste and further resource use. When a piece of furniture is reupholstered, the frame and springs are reused. This means less waste to be put into landfills. In addition, fewer trees need to be cut down, and less new steel needs to be made. Fewer natural resources are being consumed, and less pollution is being made. Re-upholstery is a way of recycling furniture into a new piece. There is also less transportation used, which also cuts down on emissions, fuel used, and unnecessary traffic. This also helps slow global warming. In addition, when you buy new furniture, your money goes towards a massive amount of raw materials from across the globe including tropical hardwoods, production energy and transport costs. Some of the materials used in re-upholstery are also “GREEN”. Bio hybrid urethane foams are soy-based. Most new urethanes are formaldehyde-free. Polyester Dacron for padding and cushion wrapping also has recycled components. Many fabric companies use recycled fibre to make new fabric. Others use environmentally friendly processes to dye the yards and use more natural fibres. Re-upholstery is a way of improving the beauty, comfort, and health of planet Earth.
5. Value for dollar – Have you ever heard the expression “they’re just not building things as well as they used to…” New furniture, while it looks nice in the store, is not being built as well as furniture from even just a generation ago and, for the most part, will not stand the test of time. Historically, the new furniture industry has been dictated to by the consumer, particularly when it comes to price. For many years manufacturers have been struggling to remain profitable and supply furniture that the consumer considers affordable. Profitability for the manufacturer has usually been achieved by using cheaper frame construction, cheaper fabric, cheaper foam, cheaper and less padding, etc. The latest trend has seen production move to offshore factories to further reduce costs, particularly labour costs. Purchasing household furniture is an expensive proposition and should be looked upon as an investment. Re-upholstery is not necessarily expensive, considering the cost of many brand name pieces plus delivery charges. When a furniture piece is re-upholstered, you should expect to receive at least 15 to 20 years of use, assuming normal wear and tear. This is normally a very good return on your investment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you supply fabric?
Yes, we supply a range of quality fabrics for you to choose from.

Can I supply my own fabric?
Yes you can supply your own fabric.

Do you pick up and deliver?
We have options for pick up and delivery. The fees will vary depending on job and location.

Can the work be carried out at my premises?
No we are not able to carry out furniture reupholstery work at your premises. All work must be carried out in our workshop.

Is it worth the effort and cost to reupholster?
Reupholstering furniture is a great, environmentally friendly way to keep old furniture out of landfills. However, it is not always the most inexpensive choice. The truth is that reupholstering furniture can often cost as much as replacing it (and sometimes more). That said people tend to underestimate how emotion a revived furniture is providing.

Why should I re-upholster, if it’s cheaper to buy something new?
If you haven’t noticed we are living in a disposable society. The current life span of most retail furniture only averages about 5 years. Upholstery can offer your furniture a life span of anywhere between 5 to 20 years.

How long does upholstery generally take?
From the initial quote to your finished product we generally estimate about 5 to 10 working days. However, most of our estimates are on a custom basis and can vary. Please allow for this time but never hesitate to ask us for a more specific time frame for your piece or in special instances for rushed service.

Do you reupholster outdoor furniture?
Yes we do, and we have many types of outdoor fabrics from which to choose.

Do you work with leather?
Yes, leather is an amazing option.  We can supply the genuine leather, bonded leather and faux leather.

How do I get a quote?
We ask for you to email a photo of the piece of furniture to carpetaddicts@gmail.com or send it by Whatsapp to 066 261 8648. We will get back to you within a week with a quote.
