Similarly one may ask, how much does it cost to cover a chair?
Types of chairs
|Wing-back chair||Larger, overstuffed chair Often with ornate framing and detailing Uses 6-8 yards of fabric High difficulty||$360-$500|
|Recliner||Overstuffed chair with more than one cushion With internal mechanisms, and footrest Uses 6-10 yards of fabric High difficulty||$600-$660|
Also, how many yards of fabric do I need to cover a bench seat? Three should be enough for one bench seat assuming it is 54 inches wide.
In respect to this, how do you measure fabric for a chair?
Measure around a chair arm starting at the outside of the chair where the arm fabric begins and continue over the arm to the point where the arm fabric ends along the inside of the chair seat. Measure the width of the chair arm along the front across the widest point.
Is it cheaper to reupholster or buy new?
The cost to reupholster furniture averages $661, ranging from $341 and $981. It tends to cost more than buying new, so it's better for pieces that have special value. If you have an antique chair with a great frame, or a modern couch with a single torn cushion, reupholstery might be a wise decision.
