The cost to reupholster a recliner can vary. The size of the chair or how custom the design is may factor in on the price you pay for your upholstery. It will also depend on whether you hire a professional upholsterer to do the job and what kind of fabric you choose.
There are a couple of factors that determine the price you pay for your upholstery. The size of the chair will play a part in the cost, as well as whether or not you want custom fabric and how many cushions there are.
Some places charge per cushion rather than by the seat; it all depends on where you live and who you hire to do the job. Depending on what type of fabric is chosen, expect to spend between $30-$100 per square foot (for synthetic materials). If leather is chosen, prices can range from $75/$80 per square foot to $110 dollars/square foot.
On average recliners cost anywhere from $40 -$100 per square foot depending on which material they are made out of and where they are made. The average price of reupholstering a recliner is $800-$1,500.
