When you need a new set of dining chairs, an ottoman or a couch, think about reupholstering your existing pieces instead of buying new ones. Reupholstering can allow you to change up the look of your space while using the furniture you already have.

Freshen Up Your Space

If you’re updating the look and feel of your space, you may need to freshen up the fabrics on your key furniture pieces  to complete the look. By reupholstering these outdated or damaged items, you can revamp the room without splurging on new furniture.


Reupholstering is a good way to up-cycle furniture instead of throwing it away. This may also be a good chance to revamp an inexpensive chair you bought at a garage sale and give it new life.

Save a Favourite or Heirloom

If you have a favourite sofa or a chair passed down to you through your grandparents, you don’t need to get rid of it just because of some damage or an outdated style. Reupholster your item to give it a brand new appearance. With its extensive library of upholstery and multi-purpose fabrics, Maple Drapery can even work with you to find a similar fabric to the original.

Make the Most of Your Quality Furniture

It can be hard to find great quality furniture these days. It’s common for older traditional furniture to outlast its contemporary counterparts, making reupholstery a great alternative. For example, if you have solid wood-framed couch that is in still good condition, you may actually save money by reupholstering it and getting more years out of it.


Sometimes, you just can’t find an item with the exact, fabric, colour or pattern you want in-store. Reupholstering allows you to pick the style you want. This is especially handy if your space calls for a couch or ottoman in unique shape or specific size. You might find the perfect chair, but the seat fabric might not work with the room décor.

If you have questions about reupholstering your furniture, you can contact the Maple Drapery team. They reupholster dining and living room chairs, couches, ottomans, stools, head boards and more. Come in with your piece or a photo of it and Maple Drapery can provide you an estimate.
