Is it cheaper to reupholster or buy new furniture?

It may be cheaper to reupholster your sofa, chairs and other furniture instead of buying new pieces. However, you’ll need to do a bit of research to be sure. 

First, get cost estimates from upholstery professionals in your area. Then, compare the cost of reupholstery to the cost of buying new furniture. If it’s cheaper to reupholster the pieces than buy new sets, book an appointment with the pro who provides the best price.
