Domestic Upholstery Options at South West Upholstery

With years of experience, we are able to offer you a range of domestic upholstery options depending on your needs. Whether you require traditional household upholstery or modern household upholstery, we can do both! Perhaps you're after completely new upholstery, with new foam, or simply looking for a re-vamp with some household re-upholstery.

As your domestic upholstery experts, we are very open with the type of upholstery you will be getting. It's important for you to state with us whether you would like to upholster your piece traditionally so that we can use traditional, natural fillings (i.e no foam!) to upholstery your furniture piece. This technique requires much more time to complete and cannot be rushed.

Now the magic can begin!

1

We will strip down your furniture, make any repairs to the frame that are required to ensure a solid foundation for us to work from. Any loose joints will be doweled, glued and screwed. We always remove the original layer of cloth and never go over the top of your existing upholstery.

2

If you have requested any French polishing to be carried out we will do this now, otherwise we will carry out a light button polish of your furniture legs as standard.

3

Now the frame is solid we will begin to move onto the springs and/or webbings on your furniture. If a spring or any webbing needs replacing we will replace it at this stage. Should the whole internal supporting structure fail on your furniture, we will quote to replace it with a suitable alternative and discuss the options with you.

4

Any padding fixed to the frame and on the arms is checked and replaced where required.

5

We will then add any new foams, feather inners or fillings that you have requested for back or base cushions to ensure excellent comfort for years to come. We would quote for these upon seeing your items or can quote beforehand using dimensions supplied.

6

Finally with a frame rebuilt ready for years of future action we can begin to upholster your furniture in your chosen cloth, leather or faux leather. We will carefully add any sundry items for the finishing touches such as braid, studding, piping and so on. New legs and castors are also fitted at this stage if requested.

7

Once complete your furniture will be quality checked to ensure we have carried out your every request, and the works are completed to our usual high standards.

8

We will then wrap your furniture with protective sheeting, ready to present to you.At this stage we will invite you to come in, inspect your work and then pay the final balance due ready for your item to be dispatched.
