Going to such expense is only be worthwhile under a few conditions, and here they are: If the sofa has been in your family for a while and has been a prized possession with a history and special sentimental value, you may want to hold on to it. There are certain things which are irreplaceable, and you cannot put a monetary value on them.
It is true that you are saving this furniture from potentially going to a landfill, know that reupholstering an old sofa could end up costing more than you would pay for a new one. Even after you have it reupholstered, it could still be uncomfortable. I am assuming you just mean to have the sofa re-covered, and are not planning to change its insides.
Test many different styles, and make sure to try them out in a way you would use a sofa at home. Do you like to sit with your legs curled up? Do you like to lie down on it? Do you feel happiest sitting in the center? Consider the height and depth of the seat. For taller people, it is best to have deeper seats. If you find it hard to rise from a seated position, try a shallower seat.
