What Are the Different Types of Car Upholstery?

Let us reupholster the vehicle with, again, an upgrade. In fact, you can contact us to set up a surprise reupholstery service for a gift. Let’s talk about the different types of car, truck, or SUV upholstery below. We can customize the upholster for a more personal and desired effect. We’ve got you covered, literally and figuratively, when it comes to upholstery.


Cloth upholstery is a nice way to upholster the interior of an automobile without an extreme associated cost. If you head to a dealer lot and look at all of the different vehicles, you will notice that the cars that are less expensive generally have cloth upholstery.

If you have cloth upholstery that you would like to replace with the same type of upholstery, this will save you money on your reupholster bill. We have a wide variety of cloth upholstery from which you can choose to customize the interior of your vehicle.


Another type of upholstery you will notice on less expensive cars is vinyl upholstery. Vinyl upholstery is the cheapest upholstery. It works well for those on a budget, and it also looks nice if it is well-kept. This being said, it can be uncomfortable in the summer.

Many of our clients choose to upgrade from vinyl upholstery when they bring their vehicles to our shop. We would be happy to talk with you about an upgrade for your automobile. We can discuss other options aside from vinyl for the vinyl replacement.

Faux Leather

Faux leather is rare but it can be found on many automobiles. Some car buyers prefer faux leather for moral reasons. They may not believe in real leather because they do not believe in purchasing anything that was created from an animal.

In addition, faux leather is less expensive than real leather, so some people want the effect of leather without the price. This is an option for someone who wants to reupholster their car, truck, or utility vehicle but cannot afford real leather.


Finally, luxury automobiles are almost always upholstered with real leather. As with clothing, upholstery that is made out of real leather is considered to be high-end. We can upgrade your upholstery to real leather if this is what you would prefer.
