Cost to Reupholster a Couch: Save Money by Restoring vs. Replacing

October 25, 2021

Before hitting the furniture store and putting a major dent in your wallet, Creative Colors International can help you determine how much it would cost to reupholster a couch to give your living room a new look.

If you are ready to give your living room a refresh, one of the easiest ways to make a big impact is to restore or refurbish your couch. As long as the frame of your sofa isn’t broken or damaged, one of CCI’s skilled technicians can refurbish the couch, saving up to 90 percent in replacement costs. In fact, experts agree a quality sofa can last up to 15 years. The average cost to reupholster a sofa is $1,750 with a fabric material and leather reupholstery starts in the $3,000 range, according to HomeAdvisor, an online home repair resource. Customers can expect to pay $50 to $75 per yard of fabric. A new, high-end sofa can cost upwards of $3,000 to $4,000, depending on size.

If you purchased your furniture at the local discount retailer, it may be less expensive to buy new furniture. However, if your sofa is a family heirloom or a high-quality piece, restoration is a cost-effective option. It’s also a good choice if you like the comfort and style of your current sofa but just need a color change. Restoring furniture is also an environmentally friendly choice for people concerned about reducing their carbon footprint.

Refurbishing a couch is not a job for a weekend warrior. It requires the talent and skill of a person trained to succeed. CCI’s service technicians receive extensive training and have the latest tools and technology at their disposal to ensure the job gets done right the first time.
