Reup Or Loose 936X545

Whether you opt for re-upholstery or made-to-measure loose furniture covers you are getting great value for money. We can cover any style of furniture on the market, so whether you have Parker Knoll, G Plain or Ercol – we have got you covered.

We have put together below a list of benefits for both made-to-measure Loose Covers and Re-upholstery. But don’t worry, if you still can’t decide, our experienced Home Consultants are available to offer you free advice to help you decide which is the best option for you.


Benefits of Loose Covers

Loose covers fit closely over your existing upholstery or are a replacement to any existing loose covers that you may already have on your furniture.

  • You can save significant sums by choosing to renew your furniture with Plumbs compared to buying new replacement furniture.
  • You are simply recycling your sofa or suite using a quality hand crafted British Made product.
  • Almost all of our loose covers are machine washable. This means you can wash and refit your covers for a fresh look, time after time.
  • A massive choice of fabrics. You can choose from over 800 fabrics and colours.

Very happy indeed with our smart new covers. Our sofas have never looked so good! It has been nice to be able to keep our old sofas and to make them look new again. I would definitely recommend Plumbs.

Benefits of Reupholstery

Re-upholstery is a very good choice for the environment. By choosing to re-upholster rather than renew, you are keeping your furniture out of landfill.

  • You get to keep all the original features. In particular with furniture that has wooden features or deep buttoning.
  • Comfort and sentimental attachment are not affected. You are making the furniture you already have literally look and feel like new.
  • A massive choice of fabrics. You can choose from over 800 upholstery weight fabrics and colours.
  • With our Reupholstery service you usually get free replacement seat cushions.
  • Unrivalled 5 Star Service – from our local Home Consultant through to our expert upholsterers.


High quality, realistic price, efficient professional service and delighted with our newly upholstered suite. We recommend Plumbs unreservedly.
