A good alternative to buying a new sofa chair is to restore your existing one. It saves you time and effort to search for the perfect sofa. Whether you want to save antique furniture or design your own living room system, retrieving your couch will enhance the appearance of your space. When you reset sofa chair you have two options. You can remove and change the sofa fabric or buy a sofa cover. Measure your couch. In addition, cushions measure. If you choose to remove the old fabric, you want to make sure you buy enough fabric to recycle the couch and pillows. If you choose to buy a cover, you will want to know the size of the sofa to determine the correct fit.
Choose your new fabric or cover. Sofa covers are made especially for furniture. Use your measurements; decide if you want your cover to fit loose or tight. A loose-legged cover will create a more comfortable feeling, while a perfect fit will look more tailored. If you choose to remove the old fabric and restore your sofa chair, choose fabric to cover the furniture. This fabric becomes more durable and often counteracts stains. Choosing a fabric unsuitable for the recycling of furniture can result in waste of time and money lost. If you have chosen to reset your couch with a cover, you are done. Easily recreate your couch.
If you restore your sofa by removing the old fabric, the next step is to remove the old fabric. Use a scissor to carefully cut the old fabric from wood frame at the bottom of the furniture. Note how the fabric is glued around the frame so that you can imitate this when recovering the furniture. Cover your sofa chair with new fabric. You do not have to cover the seat area on the couch, just back, arms and sides. See how the old fabric was placed. Insert extra fabric into the sides of the wooden frame. Carefully pull the extra fabric through the frame and smooth the fabric over the couch for the best fit. Look back at how the old fabric was stapled, and then tighten extra fabric on the wooden frame.
