How to Customise Your Car Interior: A Step-by-Step Guide

1. Finding the Right Custom Car Interior Installer

Taking the time to research the right custom upholstery expert for your car is essential. 

Upgrading your car in this way represents quite an investment and you need to know it is going to be done right and deliver the result you want. 

We recommend meeting with two or more upholsterers and asking for their suggestions and a quote for the work. You should also ask to see pictures of past work and confirm who will be working on your car and their experience level. 

The right expert for you is the one who can demonstrate consistently great work, has plenty of experience and is happy to work with you and make suggestions. They should be as committed to achieving a great result as you are. 

2. Choosing the Right Materials and Accessories for Your Custom Car Interior

Depending on what you are getting done and how you plan to use the car, the types of materials and accessories that are appropriate will differ. 

Be sure to discuss this with your upholsterer and customisation team as they are best placed to guide you on what is going to work best and offer the best longevity. 

For example, if you only intend to use the car on weekends and it’s garaged the remainder of the time, you may not need as durable a material as someone who uses the car every day. 

Budgeting and Financing Your Custom Car Interior Project

Car Cost

Luxury materials such as leather are usually worth the expense if your budget can stretch to accommodate them. 

However, there are plenty of high-performance, high-quality materials available to suit different budgets as needed. 

Working with an expert in this field ensures that your budget is accounted for and that it can be accommodated as best possible. 

A professional can help you find the perfect mix of materials and accessories that ensures a luxurious feel and a comfortable ride. 

Remember that these types of customisations do require a lot of skill, this is not like buying a car seat cover from your local auto supply store. So be prepared to factor in the cost of this skilled labour and that it is necessary to achieve a great result. 

Tips for Maintaining Your Custom Car Interior

Car Interior

Once complete, you’ll want to keep your car’s newly customised interior looking at its best. Always follow the instructions for cleaning upholstered surfaces provided by your chosen expert. 

Additionally, just as with any car, avoid prolonged UV exposure and park undercover whenever possible. Use of a sun shield in your windscreen when cover is unavailable is highly recommended.

You should also regularly vacuum all carpets and seats and refrain from placing sharp objects directly on the upholstery to avoid punctures or abrasions. 

Wipe down all trim using an approved cleaning solution on a monthly basis to remove build-up and restore shine.
