Just make sure that it has a sturdy frame and good lines if it is to be considered worth reupholstering. If it is a very good quality sofa, and the cost of reupholstering it comes out less than getting a sofa of comparable value, by all means, go for it. You may want to get quotes from two or three different re-upholsterers for all fabric and parts, and then weigh it against what you would pay for a new sofa of the same quality.
When hanging anything above a sofa, keep in mind that the number one mistake people make is to hang something that´s too small. The piece, whatever it may be, should generally be about two-thirds the width of the sofa (unless you´re opting for something purposely over-scale). If you‘re hanging a group of pieces the same rule generally applies. Other than that the rules are pretty loose, so be creative and choose something that speaks to you and makes you smile.
If you are just tired of the fabric you have right now but don’t want to invest in a new piece of furniture, you may also want to look into slipcovers. I would definitely not recommend reupholstering in that event. In the end, it is simply a question of finding the best value.
These are other important‐things to know before you buy a new sofa.

"If you're short‐legged select 40” long‐legged, 44"."says James Howard.
