REUpholstery Shop Serving Gloucester County, NJ
Fabric, padding, springs and framework - on upholstered furniture these basic elements combine to provide a wide variety of visual and tactile appeal as well as functional comfort. A good upholsterer can be one of the most invaluable pros on your home improvement list. Not only can he or she give a threadbare or dowdy piece of furniture a stylish new face, but an upholsterer also can craft one-of-a-kind decorative elements that make your space look polished and pulled together. A nicely textured upholstery fabric with an attractive pattern and tasteful color is merely the outer layer. If you're in Gloucester County, NJ and in the market for a reupholstery job, keep these tips in mind.
What an upholsterer does: An upholsterer covers furnishings, bedsprings, cornice boards, pillows and other interior elements with fabric. A tight deck, robust spring work, smooth padding, resilient foam, and
lofty stuffing all contribute to comfortable and durable upholstery. Upholsterers also attach fringe and other trims, create decorative details such as piping and tufting, make slipcovers, refinish wood and more. Many perform repairs to the structure. Our upholstery shop regularly upholsters older furniture as well as more modern furniture - from foundation spring-work and padding through to special cushions and final treatments.
Fabric: Upholsterers know about fabrics and will help clients choose the best type for their project. You can select from upholstery fabrics from:
- Kravet Fabrics
- Robert Allen
- United ... and others. We bring fabric sample books to your home so you can pick your upholstery fabric in the intended setting - and at your leisure. You are also welcome to provide your own fabric. We will help you determine the yardage.
- The degree of upholstery (fully upholstered or wood surround)
- Treatments such as tufts, buttons, channels
- The quality of the existing padding and springing
- Finish treatments - skirts,nails or fringes
You'll also need to pay for the fabric you select. We've published an Upholstery Price Guide with the typical labor cost of re-upholstering many types of furniture. It also shows the typical fabric yardage for those pieces.
Where Is That Upholstery Shop Serving Gloucester County NJ?
That got us thinking about where and how people find us. It seemed curious that people seeking a reupholstery shop serving Wenonah, Glassboro, Pitman and Sewell had at least called us, but folks from Beckett (Logan), Franklinville and Williamstown had not. Especially when we have delivered projects to Clayton, Swedesboro and Turnersville.
Some years back we were located in Woodbury, so it seems natural that we would get requests from Deptford, West Deptford and Mantua. Cross Keys, Mickleton and Malaga? Well, we'll see. I'm thinking to create a little map with pins on it for Gloucester County - might be fun to see.
Anyway, thanks for stopping in. Check out the furniture upholstery information here on the site - the Upholstery Project Photos are especially colorful. From an outside source, How to Work With an Upholsterer is a nice overview, too. And the Upholstery Price Guide proves to be quite popular.
