A Guide to Refurbishing Your Sofa

5 Steps to Refurbishing Furniture

Whether you are restoring an old sofa or creating a brand new look,
refurbishment can revive your favourite furniture without you having to invest in a new frame.

We believe that a great sofa can be more than a piece of furniture: it can also be setting for treasured memories and a statement of style.
So, if you have invested in a quality hardwood frame, refurbishment is the perfect way to reinvigorate a prized possession. No matter how
much wear and tear it might have seen, there may be no need to replace a sofa that feels perfect. So give it
a new lease of life, restore its former glory, and exercise your creativity.


1. Stripping down to frame

The first step for our experts is to strip your sofa down to the frame. After removing the old covering and inspecting the framework, the entirety of your furniture will be checked thoroughly. The integrity, wood, and fixtures will be reviewed and prepared for renewal. [/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]

2. Repair or replace parts

After inspecting the frame, we repair any damaged or worn parts. Springs and inserts are retied or replaced, buttons and pins are also replaced.


3. Preparing New Upholstery

With the sofa stripped and parts repaired or replaced as required, the next step is to reupholster the frame. Delcor provide a huge range of quality fabrics and leathers to choose from. The key here is to understand not only the look, but also the feel and durability of your upholstery. Speak to one of our experts in store if you’re not sure what to choose.

4. Reholstering

Next, your fabric or leather will be hand-cut to fit your sofa. The parts will be fixed, and all buttons and finishing touches renewed. Our experienced upholsterers take great care in recovering and reupholstering the sofa or chair.


5. Recushioning

Having removed all the cushions, we replace them with new fillings. Whether firm foam or softer fillings, we work to your exact requirements to provide your perfect comfort level.[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]
When your sofa or chair is fully refurbished, it will be returned to you – perhaps even better than new. If you are interested in having your Delcor furniture refurbished, please give us a call to discuss your requirements.
