About Upholstery in Edinburgh

The fabric used to cover and pad out pieces of soft furnishings, such as sofas and chairs, is referred to as upholstery.

Re-upholstery is the practice of taking a piece of furniture and replacing the fabric and the padding with new material. Re-upholstery is an extremely valuable service as it allows you to rejuvenate old pieces of furniture that are looking a bit worse for wear. These pieces of furniture may have been thrown out otherwise, making this service extremely useful to people who want to save some cash compared to buying brand new furniture or for pieces that carry sentimental value.

As well as re-upholstery, we also provide a range of other services including furniture frame repairs, woof polishing and other types of furniture restoration.

Advantages of Furniture Re-Upholstery Edinburgh

There are many advantages of furniture re-upholstery in Edinburgh, including;

Environmentally Friendlier

Re-upholstery and furniture repair are far more environmentally friendly than buying new furniture. Thousands of sofas get thrown away every year, most of these are actually still in great condition, despite some issues with the upholstery. These sofas are left in landfill sites, where the metal framework can take hundreds of years to erode, not to mention the environmental costs it takes to make and distribute brand new sofas.


One of the main advantages of re-upholstering your furniture is that the fabric and padding can be customised to your specification. Whether you are changing the colour scheme of a room or opting for a completely different fabric altogether, the possibilities are endless when you come to Nu-Rest upholstery.

Less Costly

Re-upholstering furniture is a fraction of the cost compared to buying new furniture, especially when you come to Nu-Rest upholstery in Edinburgh.
