Upholstery often is touted as a DIY-friendly task. However, if you have a tricky fabric repeat, a complicated job or a piece of value, using an upholsterer can help to give you peace of mind and prevent disasters.

What Does an Upholsterer Do?


Essentially, upholsterers work with fabric to cover seating, bedsprings, cornice boards, pillows and other furnishings and interior elements. They also might attach or replace padding and batting, trim a piece with fringe or another border, add piping and tufting, fashion slipcovers and refinish wood. Some upholsterers are skilled at furniture construction and repair. They can also advise you about the pros and cons of different fabrics so you can choose the best type for the project in your Ark home.

Many upholsterers work directly with interior designers and decorators, custom designing or re-covering furniture for home decor projects.

Questions to ask a prospective upholsterer:


  • How long have you been in the business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • Can I supply my own fabric and trim?
  • When can this job get done?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
