things to consider in sofa reupholsteryThe sofa is the first thing we’d see and get ourselves comfortable with every time we come home. It’s also the spot where we’ve shared good memories and laughter with our friends and loved ones.

However, despite its significance in our lives, sofas are actually one of the furniture we are most likely to give a makeover. Maybe it’s also because of the fact that sofa reupholstery can be quite tedious and most of the time there’s this overwhelming pressure of choosing the right style, fabric, and color that should go along well with the rest of the furniture you have at home.

Here are the top three (3) you should consider in doing your sofa reupholstery:


Always choose the fabric that is suitable for the existing sofa that you have. Aside from that, see to it that its pattern would complement with other patterns existing in your room. Usually, it’s always ideal to go with plain styles as it would easily blend with other furniture you have at home no matter how much you frequently change it. 

However, if you’re keen to have designs and patterns for your sofa, take in mind that simple prints and small patterns are suitable for small rooms only, while large and expressive patterns should be appropriate or large rooms.


While you may want the next color of your sofa to be your favorite color, it may disrupt the overall ambiance and impression of your room. If you have small children and pets at home, you want to stay away, for the meantime, with light-colored fabrics and pastel shades as this is prone to stains. Thus, going for dark colors should be ideal.

Did you know that the colors of the sofa affect the mood of your home? Dark-colored sofas can make your room look small and formal, while those in the lighter shade can make the room look bigger and airier.


For families, it’s always ideal to choose durable and tightly woven fabric covers as this is where most family members tend to congregate all the time. In considering other kinds of fabric, just note that while the cotton fabric is less likely to fade and wear out, it gets wrinkled and soiled easily. As for leather, it can last longer than most fabrics but requires special maintenance. 

On the other hand, going for linen, jute, and hemp will not only help in saving nature but also have natural fabric that can last long just like any other sofa covers.
