Undertaking your own custom upholstery project can be daunting. While you may love the idea of jumping in and doing everything yourself, this requires skills that few people have.
When you’ve bought fabric only to realize it’s not enough or yards too many, you may wish you had someone knowledgeable to hold your hand on this journey and help you save on some unnecessary costs. That’s where Kovi Fabrics comes in.
What’s Involved in a Custom Upholstery Project?
So you have a sofa and some chairs you want to reupholster. Great, there’s nothing better to give new life to some amazing furniture pieces than new quality upholstery—if it’s done professionally.
Poorly executed upholstery projects often result in furniture that looks sad and unfinished. This can be expensive, time-consuming, and heartbreaking. Yet, a little professional help can go a long way in setting you up to succeed in your upholstery dreams.
To create your own custom upholstery piece, you need to:
- measure correctly
- consider any repairs that the existing furniture piece needs
- replace padding and stuffing
- refinish and repair internal damage such as worn springs and broken supports
- know what fabric will go best with your existing decor scheme
- have the skills to staple and pleat the fabric correctly
- choose the right embellishments to finish off edging and create focus
- correctly attach trim and have the know-how to work with different fabric types
This is where expert knowledge comes in. Kovi Fabrics have been industry leaders for many years, and their experienced team of consultants can help you from start to finish.
