Why should I hire Portsmouth, Hampshire upholsterers?


You’d be surprised at the magic furniture upholsterers can do to an old piece of soft furnishing; rips can be mended, worn fabric refreshed and extra elements added, and all probably at a lower price than buying a brand new piece. You can ask for reupholstery or furniture restoration of the item, to match it as closely as possible to its former glory or ask for something completely different to match your redesign. Trims, piping and fringing can be added for additional flourishes, new fabric patterns chosen, extra padding added, chair backs or headboards buttoned and new sofa or duvet covers stitched.

If you’re not quite sure what to do with your old furniture, try taking it to Portsmouth, Hampshire furniture upholsterers and furniture restoration specialists to ask for their advice. Established upholstery services will be able to handle all sorts of fabric upholstery and reupholstery, including leather upholstery, and recommend the fabric that will work with your furniture and design theme. They will also be able to tell you about the durability of the fabric they will use and how to look after your re-upholstered item.

Some upholstery projects may be DIY-friendly, such as making cushion covers or covering a pouffe or stool with new fabric. If you’re itching to get crafty, you can search for Portsmouth, Hampshire fabric suppliers, as well as furniture upholsterers, on Houzz, to source fabrics and fabric decorating accessories. However, try to know your limits – leather upholsterers will be highly skilled and experienced at upholstering your sofa or headboard, but attempting to upholster a tricky fabric onto a difficult shape yourself could lead to a design disaster. Although you can always call on the experts to help with some reupholstery if it does go wrong…

Why would I need a furniture restoration specialist rather than an upholsterer?
