How Much?




Just a rough idea,...


  • COUCHES -- Cottage or staging covers are about $300 including labour and fabric.


    The traditional slipcover can run $600-800 depending on the style of the furniture and the fabric you choose (ultrasuede and hemp being the pricey ones). I charge $30/hour for my labour. The average labour cost for a three-seater couch 56-68" long is $300-600. The reason for such a wide range is the styling and fabric. For a cover done in the traditional English style with full piping, a pleated skirt and a zippered closing at the back it will cost about $450-475 for the labour. If the fabric has to be matched -- a one-inch stripe, for instance -- it takes longer. If the stripe is irregular (one colour is narrow, the other wide) or if you want a checkered fabric or one with a large repeating pattern, it takes a lot longer and a lot more fabric.




  • LOVESEATS -- the average labour cost for a two-seater 48-54" long is $200-400. For a cover done in the traditional English style with full piping, a pleated skirt and a zippered closing at the back it will cost about $300-350 for the labour. Stripes and checks will cost more because of the matching.



  • CHAIRS--there's so much range in shape, size and style, it's hard to ballpark the cost of any old chair-- for example,wing chairs come in five different sizes! Better to be specific.

    E.g. an upholstered rocker with arms, a half-circle back and seat cushion can cost $150-225.
    E.g. a simple fitted cover with no zipper for a straight-back dining room chair with no seat cushion can cost $60-90.
    The wing chair shown in the photo gallery cost $275 inclusive. People think she had it reupholstered!




    RECLINERS & LA-Z-BOY CHAIRS -- Can we do it? No.



    NOTE There is a bulk discount available if you have several pieces that are a set. The work goes faster than if the pieces were different styles. Such discounts apply only to plain fabrics, not stripes or prints in a repeating pattern that must be matched.
