Factors determining Quality Upholstery

by | May 11, 2017 | Upholstery

There are both qualified and amateur upholsterers in the market and they all provide services to clients. As a client, it is your responsibility to make sure you get the right upholsterer to work on your leather furniture.

To get the right professional, ask for referrals from people you trust like friends and family members. If you do not get any referrals, turn to yellow pages, fabric stores, interior designers, business bureaus or antique shops for referrals.

The visit

After you settle on the professional, make sure you visit them at their place of work. Write down a list of the most important things for you to examine and ask about. Remember to ask to see finished work so that you can gauge the quality of work.


Some upholsterers avoid the long way of doing things and prefer to go the short way. Examine how the upholsterer does his work and be keen on whether he uses shortcuts. Test the strength of the furniture to see if the frame is strong enough and check the quality of the fabric.


Do not go for a cheap upholsterer; look for one who charges reasonable amounts. Cheap turns out to be expensive so avoid such, you would rather wait a little longer until you have enough to pay a professional for re-upholstery in Glasgow.


Be very clear about your specific requirements. If you want a particular fabric from a specific place, be very clear to the upholsterer. There is a normal way of doing re-upholstery in Glasgow so if you fail to communicate your specific requirement, the upholsterer will just re-upholster in the normal way. If you have pictures of what you want, give the upholsterer or write down your specific requirements.

Work order

Check the content of the work order to make sure it has the right information. Do not pay for the work before you are satisfied with the work.
