How to Reupholster a Couch

Reupholstering a couch or loveseat isn’t an easy DIY project—it is time-consuming and requires research and note-taking. Once you’re ready to start your new upholstery project, check out our step-by-step guide.

Study your couch. The first step in any reupholstery project is to get to know the piece of furniture you’ll be working with so that you can easily reconstruct it at the end of this process.

Where are the staples? Is there a slipcover? Are there tufted buttons? Is there visible cording along the seams? Is there a skirt? Taking notes and photos for future reference can you save a lot of time down the line.

Remove the bottom cover. Most couches will have a lightweight layer of fabric stapled to the underside of the couch known as the dust cover.

Usually, this is the last piece of fabric attached to the couch, which means that it should be the first to come off when reupholstering. Using your staple remover, remove the staples around the dust cover and set them aside.

Remove the pieces of upholstery fabric. After you remove the dust cover, you will be able to see how the other upholstery pieces on the couch were stretched and stapled to the frame.

Take a look at the layering, and remove the top layer of upholstery fabric first (often the piece on the back of the couch). Next, use your staple remover to lift the staples gently, then discard them.

It’s essential to take notes and photos as you remove each piece of upholstery so that you can easily place the pieces back together later. contact now 9023043453.
