While its functionality might be a very important aspect, there are several other factors you should consider before you buy a sleeper. As with any piece of furniture consider your needs. The most important thing to consider whether it will be primarily used as a bed or for seating.
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.
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.
