What does it cost to reupholster?

The cost to reupholster depends on the time taken to complete the job, parts and collection/delivery.

Here is an idea of ‘What does it cost to reupholster?’ All guide prices are plus the cost of fabric as fabric costs range from £45-£90+ per meter or you can provide your own fabric.

Footstool.
Depending on the detail – a plainly wrapped footstool with no stitching is from £250, with stitching about £350 and with a lid and top about £450.  A large trefoil footstool, for example, will be about £600.

Sofa.
An average sofa to strip restore and reupholster will be in the region of £850.
– Sofa and two matching chairs start at £1850.

We nearly always replace the frame padding and foams, check and replace as required the springs and make good the frame joints.  This is included in the price.

Chair.
A small occasional chair is from £300 to about £1500; depending on any structural work required, sprung units to install and repairs etc. A Parker Knoll chair, for example, is usually £400.

Chaise.
A Victorian chaise will require the framework checked and sprung unit and coils restored. We restore using modern versions of traditional methods. Cost usually is in the region of £850 – £1000.

Dining Chair.
Dining chair seat pads are usually about £45 – £90 each. Some require frame repairs or replacements,  most will require new seat pad foam as once removed the older padding tends to degrade and new firm foam pad forms the shape. Padding is included in the price but new seat pads are not because of the different sizes and types may be required.  New seat foams are usually about £20.

High Back Dining Chair. Kingston Chair.
Sometimes called a Kingston chair we reupholster these very popular chairs often and the price for most is in the region of £105 – £165. Again; padding and joint checks are all included.  If a full new seat foam is required (often not) this is extra.
