Choosing the Best Material for Your Sofa Reupholstery Service

One of the best parts of upholstering your sofa or chairs is that you can choose exactly what kind of material, texture, colour, and pattern that you want on your furniture. Reupholstery can breathe new life into your old furniture, offering a modern and quirky alternative to your worn or dated sofas and chairs.

Here at Royal Upholstery, we offer a huge range of high-quality materials suitable for all sofas, couches, and suites. Whether you’re looking for a sleek and modern new look or would rather something a little more out-there and colourful, we have it all, with a team of expert Dublin upholsterers boasting years of industry experience. In this blog, we will explain the benefits of each, and what to consider when you’re choosing the new design and feel of your existing living room furniture.

Cotton & Linen Upholstery

Cotton and Linen are two of our most popular materials here at Royal Upholstery, offering a soft, comfortable, and breathable fabric to any chair or sofa. As well as being a comfortable choice, cotton and linen are a timeless material that works really well when used to upholster all shapes and sizes of furniture due to its flexibility and ease of use. Here at Royal Upholstery, we have a huge range of cotton and linen fabrics available to choose as part of your sofa reupholstery, couch reupholstery, or chair reupholstery service in our Dublin warehouse. We offer a wide variety of block colours as well as funky patterns, and can always advise you on the best colours, designs, and style patterns to suit your existing home décor. As well as offering high-end cotton and linen upholstering fabrics, we have a range of budget-friendly fabrics to transform your furniture at a fraction of the cost.


If your existing sofa, chairs, or living room suite is made from leather or faux leather, leatherette is a fantastic way of upholstering it while maintaining its classic and luxurious look and feel. Leatherette is a high-quality faux leather that looks, feels, and cleans exactly like the real thing, but is far cheaper and more malleable. Here at Royal Upholstery, we provide a range of top-quality leatherette materials that can be moulded around all kinds of furniture, providing a high-end look at an extremely affordable price. Like our cotton and linen upholstery range, all leatherette materials are flexible when it comes to colour, pattern, and designs to ensure that you don’t have to compromise on style. If you’re looking for a professional service that will transform your old sofas and chairs into beautiful, good-as-new pieces of furniture, our Dublin leatherettes can certainly help.


As well as offering a wide range of Dublin Upholstering services, the team here at Royal Upholstery also provides professional re-foaming services for couches, chairs, suites of furniture, ottomans, footstools, and more. While a reupholstering service will have your furniture looking good as new, a re-foaming service will help your furniture to feel new, too. We offer a range of standard foam to fill the cushions and backs of your furniture as well as rubber reflex foam and memory foam for a luxurious touch. All of our foam is cut to size, with no job too big or small for our team. To make things easier for you, our Dublin upholstery services offer a free collection and delivery service to customers all across Dublin, making your upholstering as quick, easy, and hassle-free as possible.
